I run the Thiel Foundations 20 Under 20 Program and get to work with brilliant people from across the globe.
When I'm not working (which I'm quite fond of), I participate in gardening, music (I play clarinet), yoga, dance, cooking, and being with friends.
A few topics that I'm really passionate about are education (particularly the charter school movement and homeschooling/unschooling), Non-Violent Communication, personal growth, fertility awareness, hearing and connecting with other people's passions, health/nutrition, blues/swing/contra dancing...and more (I'm a bit of a dilettante, so whatever peaks my interest usually gets some good air time).
Speaking as a student of life, I certainly play a lot. Googling topics, reading, and intellectually engaging in activities are routine parts of everyday. As an adult, I greet this state of wonder for its interesting, fruitful, and growth producing interactions.
