My self-summary
I wont tell you my name but I can tell you that it means ambidexter (Oh yes!). Well, my parents had high expectations!

Finished Ph.D. in Economics from Yale. Pursuing post-doc. Have serious interest in films and theater. Into avant-garde films and world cinema. Gradually building up my DVD collection! (It is still quite small but you have an open invitation to take a tour of the rack.)
What I’m doing with my life
I guess gathering enough knowledge to finally speak truth to power, but given it's gonna take time I don't mind opening youtube and watching a good stand up comedy once in a while! (Luis CK my fav)
I’m really good at
intellectual conversations!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile (I guess!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: I'm a lot into foreign films, Iranian ones are my fav. In Hollywood I love Coen brothers, Sidney Lumet, Scorsese, Hitchcock and Charlie Kaufman stuff...it is hard to give a list. Oh I almost forgot Kubrick and Jarmusch! My mentor of course is Satyajit Ray. Anyways, the point is we can talk about it!

TV: Mad Men (it can not get better than this), Loved House of Cards (2013), and The Americans. Didn't like Girls. Like Louie very much.

Food: Apart from Indian? Thai, Korean and Ethiopian (among many others). I love experimenting with food.

Books: Hemingway, Chekov, Gogol, Gabriel Garcia, the list is as usual quite long. Among non-fictions Amitav Ghosh's In an Antique Land and Graeber's book on the history of Debt, both quite fascinating. Love Jonathan Franzen.

Music: Listen to a lot of different stuff. Don't mind experimenting.
The six things I could never do without
Ice cream
Alternative News
Travelling
Good music
the Spring weather
and Stargazing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
getting completely lost in my next trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
getting annoyed by the fact that I don't have anyone to play cards with.
You should message me if
you wouldn't mind me grabbing food from your plate in a restaurant.
