A native New Yorker, I made a move to Phoenix, AZ to attend graduate school at Arizona State University's School of Sustainability. Living in Phoenix but being a doctoral student, most of my time is spent playing the long-game of the PhD (reading, researching, writing). When I can, I take advantage of the tremendous (non-summer) weather to hike, bike, or just walk in the sun. A few more things about me...

Favorite authors(a) or books(b): Haruki Murakami (a), Inherit the Wind (b, ok...really a play...), Octavia Butler (a), Diamond Age (b), Kafka on the Shore (b)

It is not growing like a tree
In bulk doth make Man better be;
Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
A lily of a day
Is fairer far in May,
Although it fall and die that night—
It was the plant and flower of light.
In small proportions we just beauties see;
And in short measures life may perfect be.
Favorite word: seek!
