April 2022 Update: At 39 I’m now officially an angel investor, having networked with the beautiful and creative minds behind https://endiatx.com/ Here I am helping represent the company at Tesla’s Austin, TX Cyber Rodeo in April:
I have a thirst for life! I was a National Merit Finalist and an AP Scholar with Honors at Scituate High School in Massachusetts in 2001. I finished the Boston Marathon twice in high school and twice more in college. Later I ran a best marathon time of 3:05 at age 27 and also completed an IronMan that year. I tutored as a volunteer at Harvard, where I graduated with a degree in Linguistics in 2005. I sang in the Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus in college, and in the San Francisco Choral Society later. I summited the Umbwe Route of Kilimanjaro at 19. I became an acrylic painter in my mid-twenties, and a tennis whiz in my early thirties. I cycled from Seattle to San Francisco by myself in seven days, and completed a ten-kilometer swim. I got into Python programming a few years ago, finished a coding bootcamp in San Jose, and have solved 65 of the mathematical propositions on projecteuler.net.
I took a year off to travel and perfect my Spanish in South America. Je parle Français aussi! I own a diverse portfolio of blockchain assets in addition to other investments. I gutted a 1977 Dodge Clipper RV and remodeled it when I turned 35. I’ve been a musician, a triathlete, a traveler, an investor, and always a reader and learner. I’m as wild at the karaoke microphone as on the geography quiz website of your choice. I believe that there will always be a new skill to master, and have imbued my students with this spirit of energy.
