About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Big ones: sell everything I own and take off, live in rural India, learn conversational central-asian languages, eat really good food in France and Western Europe, never look back. Other ones: get a Ph.D., bodybuild competitively, achieve notoriety.

ABOUT ME

Grad student at MIT in Economics. Music flows through me. I'm a total foodie, exercise lover, and intellectual. A bit high strung, but eager and caring.

PHILOSOPHY

Live is too short to be anything but happy.

"Reject the fundamental assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of material possessions." ~Palahniuk

Love is really great.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I sang in front of 8,000 people with an a cappella group at Radio City Music Hall in New York, and we got a standing ovation. That many people being that positive about our performance was an amazing feeling.

Teach, Learn, Share

More seriously: I know quite a bit of economics, social science, chemistry, physics, math, some programming, and a lot about music. I love giving voice lessons.

I want to learn to speak a lot of languages, and to live unweighed down. I want to learn to conquer my fear of losing control.
