My self-summary
I'm a seeker of change and adventure; I'm an optimist. Currently, I work in strategy and operations at an edtech start-up. Before that, I taught 7th grade in Harlem and researched social entreprenuership in Poland.

Baz Luhrmann said it best, "Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes your hard / Live in northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft."
What I’m doing with my life
Studying myself and the complexities around me.
Consistently losing (and searching for) my damn keys.
Finding an excuse to walk on the sunny side of the street.
I’m really good at
Rambling about education reform. I'm decent at improvised cooking, and I enjoy listening to the stories that people tell. Everyone has one.
The first things people usually notice about me
My exceedingly goofy smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Paradise Lost, Midnight's Children, The God of Small Things, Rules for Radicals.

Music: Hot Chip, Odesza, Todd Terje, Owen Pallett, Bakermat, Thomas Jack, Alabama Shakes, Radiohead, Cut Copy, St. Lucia, The Presets.

Food: Gose beer, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, Brussels sprouts, polenta, spicy tuna, pierogi, beets, hot sauce, everything bagels with lox.
The six things I could never do without
Political debates around the dinner table, my passport, a pair of running shoes, Stumptown coffee, family recipes, and the New Yorker.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend most of my day trying to unravel the problems facing edtech businesses. Otherwise, I'm synthesizing the opinions of those who challenge me. I'm intent on dwelling in the present.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding over a pint (or two) of beer (most likely a sour if I can find one).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My attempts at becoming a vegetarian have all lasted less than 72 hours. These failures either speak volumes about my (lack of) self control or my dependence on meat.
You should message me if
You have a story to share.
