I am trying to save the world via a particularly convoluted and dubious route by working at a economics research organization. I'm generally on the lookout for new things to do and new places to go.
I like music, a lot, and cooking followed by eating. I read books in parallel rather than in series.
Update: In Berlin for a few weeks and very excited about it.
Cities and not-cities, on an approximately equal basis. Most other things too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A stilt village in Ghana; every inch of beach in Sierra Leone; Paul Kagame speaking to a packed, silent stadium on the eighteenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. Giraffes. The view of San Francisco Bay from rooftops in Berkeley's hills.
