My self-summary
I'm a smart, health-conscious guy. Most of the time I love my job; I'm very fortunate in that regard.
We're in the midst of winter, so my beard has come back. It's my favorite winter running accessory. The farmers' markets are less colorful than they were during the summer and fall. I've come to love root vegetables, so I still enjoy shopping at Union Square through the winter and the meals prepared from what I find there. I'm also enjoying the jams I canned during the summer. I also just made a batch of apple butter.
Baseball is back; now if it would just warm up. I'm enjoying various cultural events...The Hard Nut, Francis Picabia at MOMA, Danish Dance Theatre's Black Diamond, Marie Schneider Orchestra...
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a molecular biologist trying to adjust to a more administrative role after many years at the bench.
I'm trying to be a locavore. I've been shopping a the Greenmarkets during the summer for years, but decided to make more of a commitment to local food by canning the local stuff to have over the winter rather than shop at WholeFoods. I haven't completely succeed, but did pretty well.
I’m really good at
my job, analytical yet creative. I'm also a good cook. The greatest gift I received from my grandmothers was their nurturing my love for cooking. I believe that cooking, like many things in life, is best as a shared activity despite the cramped quarters found in most Manhattan kitchens.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure. That I walk fast?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy listening to music (mostly jazz, some classical), attending modern dance performances (Mark Morris, Garth Fagan, Pilobolus, DanceBrazil), and wandering through museums. I like going to lectures at AMNH and NYAS.
I enjoy old movies: Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity, It Happened One Night, The Lost Weekend, Madame Satan (1930, a hoot)... Recently enjoyed Hidden Figures and I Am Not Your Negro.
I like to read, though mostly I'm reading things that are work related. When I get a chance, I like science fiction...Margaret Atwood, Kim Stanley Robinson, William Gibson. I just started Hidden Figures.
Going with the locavore theme, I like my own cooking. I'm tending towards simple meals made from whatever happens to be in season. Thank goodness it's finally Spring; peonies showed up at the Green Market this weekend. I've been enjoying some of the things I canned last summer: asparagus, snap peas, green beans... I'm looking forward to baking pies with the sour cherries I froze away. I don't do well with spicy food. I suspect a weird capsaicin receptor allele because I think sweet paprika is hot; most things you'd find pleasantly hot, I'd find extremely painful.
Six things I could never do without
air, water, food, shelter, electricity, and my bifocals. Things I’d prefer not to live without: good health, good company, good food, intriguing art/music, a nice place to run, new things to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which vegetables are going to be at the farmers' market this week? Soon I hope to be able to spend time thinking about YOU.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something. I could be at the Joyce catching a dance performance...could be at home making vegetable stock...could be wandering around MOMA...could be watching a baseball game...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the author of a short story with a cult following.
You should message me if
you're a smart, health-conscious, single woman who enjoys both science and art.
The two of us
