My self-summary
I'm a math professor. I have a a good, admittedly warped, sense of humor. I also have a penchant for mischief. I oscillate between being very serious and very ridiculous. Some of my friends have commented that I might be a cartoon character pretending to be a human being.
What I’m doing with my life
Settling in to Philly, and slowly making an actual home here. I've lived in Minneapolis, Toronto and NYC previously. I'm originally from New Jersey and am glad to be back on the East coast.
I’m really good at
Math, Mischief, Pop Culture Trivia, Housework, Home Repair, Being the cantankerous member of the condo association
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to hear me before they see me (I often forget to use my "indoor voice")

Music: Velvet Underground, Pixies, Roky Erickson, Jesus and Mary Chain, Roxy Music, Brian Eno, Clash, Ramones, Delta 5, Ladytron, Epoxies, Talking Heads, WFMU

I've also read all the Game of Thrones books, and the King Killer Chronicles. I am eager to discuss them with people.

Odd fact about me regarding books: for some reason I almost never reread books. The only books I can remember reading twice are Catcher in the Rye and the Great Gatsby. Not sure what this says about me.

I recently started playing video games, for the first time in a long time, as a diversion from the news.
Six things I could never do without
Every attempt I have ever made to fill this out has been futile. Thus, it will remain blank.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Math. The news. What to have for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for drinks or watching Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get a real kick out of the "ripped from the headlines" episodes of SVU.

One of my favorite movies is Weekend at Bernie's.
