Join Couchsurfing to see Justin’s full profile.
A science-person who should probably be a psychologist instead. I come from a family that's new money but tried to be like old money and established families. They succeeded and failed in interesting ways. I've gone dumpster diving with my conservative, Indian, financier father.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've hosted in the past, including some last minute, kind of spammer-y couchsurfers--who turned out alright--so that was fun, but I can't deny I really like being able to travel mostly free m'self.
I'm mostly a student of two books: Quiet, about introverts, by Susan Cain, and Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. They're both very good at explaining abstract cognitive stuff that is a bit contrary to society, and each does it in a very unique way. See also Paul Tough of How Children Succeed, and Marsha Linehan of DBT.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I lived in the woods outside Berkeley and SF for a while, after a west coast bike trip, and spent most of my time in writing in starbucks and whole foods. With my fancy ortlieb brand bike bags, I passed for a particularly loaded-up student, most of the time.
Teach, Learn, Share
A little bit of gardening, dumpstering, a tiny bit of CAD stuff. Circuit design and stuff about power, if you like.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A wide variety of things. Never really do not have stuff.
