Designer, Amateur Physicist, Musician and Pro Dad
I'm a proud father of two, full-time product designer/manager for a wireless lighting control system, I teach at NYU on and off, and in what little free time I have I have been teaching myself quantum mechanics (via Griffiths and Brilliant.org) and preparing demos for 2 new albums. I'm completely in love with physics, but also linguistics, semiotics, neuroscience, neural networks etc etc. And my kids X-)

Music, art & literature is as critical to me as math and physics. I'm very passionate about music and I LOVE sharing it with people. Particularly into shoegaze and, hilariously, black metal.


Umberto Eco, Christopher Priest, Italo Calvino, Borges, Hesse (though it's been a while), Neal Stephenson, Ursula K. LeGuin, Murakami, oh! Ted Chiang!, David Mitchell (for the astonishing masterpiece that is Cloud Atlas)


Well, I have a neighborhood dads D&D group called Dads & Dragons if that tells you anything



Mostly scifi and modern fiction with a smattering of physics and other nonfiction. My two favorite books are probably Dune and Watership Down. Here's what I've been reading: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/107855-tedb0t

I'm still thinking about Cloud Atlas (not the movie). That shit seriously blew my mind.


All of my favorite movies are of the criminally underrated variety, like Gattaca and Contact and Bram Stoker's Dracula. "Arrival" seriously moved me (and the original Ted Chiang story is also great).


Listening more or less constantly to something, and always on the look out for new, amazing music. I try to get to shows whenever possible. If you want to join me for a couple of upcoming shoegaze/indie shows, by all means message.

Shoegaze/indie rock/dreampop - Outside of the classic MBV, Cocteau Twins, Chapterhouse, Lush, Slowdive, etc., there's a ton of stuff from the past decade that's amazing. Amusement Parks on Fire (sorely underrated), Fleeting Joys, Spotlight Kid, Whirr, Nothing, Rumskib, Ringo Deathstarr (that bass sound), All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors (should really be included in the definitive history of American shoegaze), the Daysleepers, Keith Canisius (amazing!), Summer Heart (electro + gaze + pop), M83 of course...

Ambient & drone (Robert Rich, Stars of the Lid), a fair bit of modern black metal and related microgenres (think Deafheaven), medieval choral music, gigantic cathedral organ music, trance when programming, old-school & 90s goth, postpunk & coldwave, EBM/industrial (once upon a time), and a long tail of oddities and endities


Recently got super into the West Wing. Stranger Things, of course; I've watched 30 Rock all the way through like 6 times (is that weird? that seems weird.); I grew up with Star Trek: the Next Generation and it holds a very special place in my heart. I've also watched enough classic Simpsons to qualify for some kind of neurological study on its effects on my brain.
