I was born in Boulder, CO and grew up in State College, PA. Most of my extended family lives in Los Angeles and in England. I am a citizen of the US and of the UK. I am Jewish. I am vegan, and have been (for the most part) since I was born. I identify as bisexual; I came out when I started dating my partner, Brendan Griffiths, who works as an Academic Coach at WPI.
I play bassoon in orchestras and chamber groups, and I sing in choirs. I also enjoy folk music, and am learning to play acoustic guitar in that style.
Sliding around on snow
I downhill ski, and I'm learning how to snowboard.
I enjoy running, mostly on my own for exercise, though I've been known to participate in the occasional 5K or 10K race.
I love backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, and snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Utah.
I like getting computers to do cool stuff. I also use computers for gaming. My favorite classic games are Starcraft II and Myst.
I enjoy playing chess and discovering new board and card games. I prefer cooperative games like Pandemic and Spirit Island.
