About Me

I recently quit my job in biotech to pursue my dream of combining my love for food and technology. I currently run a dinner party blog (projectdinnerparty.com). Each month, I pick a theme. Then, I research recipes, prototype dishes, and scour the city for ingredients. At the end of the month, I throw a dinner party around the theme. I'm specifically looking for couchsurfers who are into food and/or cooking. My goal is to cook with people from all of the world (food is the universal language!).

I am an explorer of science, ideas, culture, film, and novel experiences. I grew up in the deep south (which surprises many people), went to school near Boston, moved to Seattle for two years on a whim, went to Chicago for graduate studies, and moved to the Bay Area to use my new degree. I decided on a Thursday to move to SF and moved the following Sunday. I will spend the summer cooking and blogging. In September, I plan to move to South America (Peru and Colombia) for a few months to learn Spanish and learn to cook the cuisine there.

PHILOSOPHY

I am passionate about optimizing the boring things in life to make room for the good stuff. I am more interested in discovering new aspects of life and getting better at things a little every day. That doesn't mean that I don't do things on a whim or occasionally stay out way too late. I just live by the philosophy that fortune favors the prepared mind and think that the case can be made for moderation. That may sound boring, but I believe that it's ultimately fulfilling. Yes, I practice moderation in moderation.
