I'm an NYC native by way of India and Minnesota. Something about that combination cancels out all possible accents..bummer. I am in grad school in Philly, in biophysics, and still pretty new to the city. I love what I do but always find a balance between work and life. I grew up mostly in Brooklyn, and am a huge fan of New York, but I'm loving Philadelphia so far. When I'm not studying or in lab, I love biking around town, running (hope to run the half marathon next year), going to the gym (I work out at 12th street), dancing, craft beers, trying new wines, expanding my cooking repertoire, and drinking whiskey. I have an affinity for disturbing books and watching creepy movies (am a huge Lynch fan), and frequent art museums. I love to travel (especially to New Orleans, the west coast, or Paris), and I've been all over. Bonus points if you can make me a well-made Sazerac.
movies -- wild strawberries, blue velvet, mulholland drive, inland empire (you might start noticing a trend), la cage aux folles, jodorowsky, kubrick, ...
music -- everything from stone roses to britney. with some beatles , pavement, and sonic youth thrown in.
food -- let's just say i'm pretty lucky i can fit through doors.
Also, I'm 25 and don't have a driver's license. I'm a product of an urban upbringing :)
