I've already mentioned some of the basics in the top section (live in Cambridge, etc). For fun, I like to ride my bike and I commute to work on it as many days as possible (it's about five miles door to door). I'm also an amateur musician. I play the drums and guitar. I used to play a lot more than I do now, but time, energy, and opportunity don't seem to coincide much anymore. I bought my own house 5.5 years ago. It's in the middle of Cambridge, halfway between Harvard and MIT. I have a garden on my roof where I grow some vegetables (eggplant, peppers, zucchini), herbs (basil, thyme, parsley), and an assortment of flowers (and I wonder why I don't have time to play the drums!). P.S. I do not smoke.
