I'm a mathematician and an economist with a penchant for numbers, patterns, and behavioral papers. You'll often find me digressing over an academic article, or a mathematical fact.
I've lived around the world, and still go overseas a few times a year on fun adventures. If you have an interesting travel story, I'd love to hear it!
I started, and still help manage, a pro bono consulting NGO in my home country. This year marked our fifth anniversary (the party was worth the flight).
Otherwise, I'm contemplating going back to school for a part-time Masters in either statistics or financial math. I admire people who manage to educate themselves constantly, regardless of their age or profession.
(Both are related.)
I like to be in control. I'm calm, cool, and collected under pressure (fitbit says I have a low resting heart rate). I've learned to stay patient, and absorb everything around me before making a decision. I'm also a great listener.

The Cantor Set.
What is time? Is it simply a measure of entropy? An evolutionary construct that helps us make sense of our sensory experiences? Does the future exist, or is it constantly being created/destroyed? (If this kind of question piques your interest, we'll get along very well).
Sometimes I like to just go for a long walk or bike ride around the city and take photographs.
