When I’m not working on empathy and its applications, I enjoy solving problems, multi-tasking, and making things happen.  Work is fun and I like other fun activities too like: chocolatiering and cooking; training and trail-running; spending time with family and close friends.  I am inspired by visionaries, hard-workers, and those who persevere, including: Richard Rodriguez, Susan Sontag, Martin Luther King, Jr, my father and my mother.  I’m originally from Los Angeles, CA where you will find me running its trails at 5000+ elevation, or diligently working at my desk in the heart of its downtown.
