I was born in Vermont, but spent most of my life in Portland, Oregon and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, giving me a great mix of rural and city, liberal and conservative, east and west.
Currently, I attend Harvard University, where I study physics and computer science. My interests include astronomy, robotics, web development, waterskiing, electronic music, technology, fantasy novels, and futurology.
I spent an amazing three months in Germany (eight weeks in Berlin) working towards my German citation, and am conversational in the language.
I am always on the look-out for book and music recommendations—I like everything from sci-fi to historical and folk to techno!
