I have always enjoyed listening to and making music. That's part of being alive and human.
Working with metal gives me a special pleasure, although it's been a while. I spend a lot of my time in a more abstract space, and it is nice to work with something solid; steel is very definite. Similarly, cooking and cheesemaking are a lot of fun, with the added advantage that you can eat what you make.
Yoga and mindfullness are important to me, and I am a certified yoga instructor.
I also take pictures - primarily botanical and cultural photographs.
I currently work on large-scale infrastructure at Google, thinking about how to make it even more reliable.
