I am currently a linguist and paralegal in New York City. Before that I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan. Before that I studied Philosophy, where I particularly liked talk about psychology, the mind, time, and language, and in true philosopher's fashion, the intersection between all of them. I also majored in Spanish and French Comparative where I learned a great deal about the anathema of language students everywhere: the subjunctive mood. Before that I was a child. I have color-grapheme synesthesia, I can solve Rubik's Cube, I know some lame magic tricks, I'm accidentally almost a vegetarian, I spend a lot of time on the internet, and I like modern art.
Language, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, evolution, sociology
I'd like to see if Jevons' paradox is true.
Almost anything. I've rarely been disappointed with a TED talk if that tells you anything about the scope of my interests.
Math, although I was a Humanities major.
The first TED video I saw was Ron Eglash on Fractals. Two years later I was referred back and I watched all of the videos marked "ingenious" and "fascinating" within a month.
