My self-summary
I like science and nature. I'm working on projects involving plants, food systems, robots, and open science.
What I’m doing with my life
Despite working on a few big projects, I'm not working 24/7. I spend time travelling to visit friends and family. I do hiking, running, bouldering, and swimming. I make sure I eat well and sleep well.

My favorite activity is talking with nerds and scientists. (I went to that dusty desert event as part of a big science camp; I spent most of my time talking with campmates, even though there were a million other things to do.)

I wish I could create clones of myself, each living a different life. Here are some possible clone lives:

1. running a small farm (with goats, chickens, greenhouses, permaculture, and aquaponics)
2. working on improving the education system
3. working on political engagement/change
4. creating robot/video/data art
5. travelling, starting with South America

I think I have a decent shot at interleaving most of these clone lives into my current life. I've had a good start so far. Some achievements (proceeding with mini resume): working on music videos for Daft Punk and Bjork, building prize-winning robots, building international art installations, getting a PhD from MIT, doing a cell-imaging postdoc, building a boat from scratch, discovering a champagne cellar in the subway tunnels of NY, visiting Chernobyl, and getting invited to NZ to work on the Hobbit.
