Running around, gravity, football, rock music, some more gravity. Astrophysics when I want to remember things are real, mountains when I want to see things are beautiful.

Machine learner, python sorcerer, gig-goer. When not thinking about astrophysics, can be found noodling on a guitar, on a (very) long run, or with the head buried in a book. Or wishing there was a guitar around.
