My self-summary
Raised artist, turned scientist, but still work on doing both. Grew up in a small town in Northern California, but have known and loved the Bay Area for years.

Studied Earth System Science, interdisciplinary - geography, geology, biology, physics, chemistry, environmental studies, etc.

Enjoy cooking, photography, biking...

Working at a biomass energy & carbon sequestration start up.
What I’m doing with my life
When not working or being introspective: surfing the web - metafilter, boingboing, reddit, TED, worldchanging, pruned, laughingsquid, google scholar

When not exploring the series of tubes, exploring places by bike. Thinking up interesting things to cook.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Many things Pixar. Sita Sings the Blues. Amelie. Hugo.
(things involving Michael Bay don't really draw me)
So bad it's good: The Core

Food (a sampling):
Heirloom Tomatoes
Trumpet Mushrooms
Tasty Greens (I seem to have an unusual affinity for arugula - snacking on a bag of fresh arugula will sub for a bag of chips)
Most cuisines - Thai/Indian/Italian/Japanese

Liquids: loose coffee, leaf tea, or a good IPA.

Likes: Balkan Beat Box, Brass Menazeri, Diego's Umbrella, Beats Antique, Gramatik, March Forth & Extra Action Marching Bands, Movits!.

The six things I could never do without
Water, food, oxygen, interesting things to ponder, the natural world, the number six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a better place
The environmental impacts of various technologies
Whether to go back to the giant dusty lake bed in the Nevada desert late August (skewing not).
On a typical Friday night I am
Possibly out dancing to music with a good beat, going to Art Murmur, riding with Bike Party, or working if need be.
