The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:

Nurture your friendships as you would romantic partnerships. 

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…

In bed.

Favorite place in the world:


The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time:

Play Dominion and Settlers of Catan.

I’m happiest when…

I’m in the sun.

Favorite online destination (other than so/ambitious, obviously):

Discovering remote, obscure worlds inside Youtube.

Cats or dogs?
