My self-summary
I like doing and learning new things. Especially outside: running, hiking, biking. And diving! I like to experiment with photography and to visit museums for inspiration.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a scientist. I research new things all the time, teach, travel, and write grants. Except for the grants, I love it.
I’m really good at
Brainstorming. Biking up hills. Flying kites. Packing lightly. Salsa dancing. I'm not *yet* really good at running, but—up in the hills in the morning or possibly down at the beach in the evening—I'm working on it. Next race is a 200-mile relay, and then the NY marathon.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Persimmons > strawberries = apricots > blueberries > cherries > olallieberries = grapes = peaches > lychees > tangelos = pineapples > bananas = grapefruit = kiwi > oranges = watermelons > plums!

Books: Stevenson's "Just Mercy" (read it!), Munk's "Idealist" and Mukherjee's "Biography of Cancer." In fiction, all over the place…

Music: How else can you run? Mostly indie stuff.
