I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area (East Bay), and am a engineer/musician. I am a Environmental and Sustainable Engineering PhD student during the day and percussionist/drummer at night. My engineering work is all over the place, but my current focus is on the resilience of electric power systems to disasters. For music, I am particularly interested in musics of the world, and love learning the culture and history associated with them. For example, I have experience learning and playing Brazilian, Cuban, Indian, East Guinean, and Senegalese musical traditions.
When I travel I love to see art and live music. Museums, bands, shows, etc. I am also all about good food and drink. If you have a restaurant/bar suggestion, please, pass it this way.
