I love to learn new things, which is good because I keep starting new things in which I have to learn everything, and hasn’t finished yet. My accumulation of knowledge comes from a diverse well of experience, from being a partner in an art gallery in Brooklyn to running advertising operations at a news website to consulting with law firms and architects on operations and business goals. Throughout, I think I may have spent more time automating things than I saved by automating them, but believe it was a good trade.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in economics from NYU and recently received a pandemic Master’s degree in urban planning from the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.
I'm an avid science fiction reader and claim to have read every Hugo and Nebula Award winning novels. When not reading I generally think about how to improve my chocolate chip cookies, a decades-long endeavor. My most recent new idea didn't quite work, but I'm excited to try the next batch.
