Here

I was thinking today about how the most basic facts—the ones we talk about first when we meet someone in person—can get caught up and whisked out of reach in the endless flow of the stream online. As an experiment (a very simple one), I thought I’d toss try tossing a handful of facts into the stream as a bundle, in the hope that they’ll stick together.

As of May, I’m halfway through a two-year MBA program at Harvard Business School. (The plan is to graduate in May 2013.) Before business school, I lived in San Francisco. For most of that time, I worked at Microsoft in Mountain View as a program manager on the PowerPoint team; last summer, I worked with my friends at Photojojo. Before San Francisco, I studied history at Harvard, and wrote my senior thesis on the 1895 Atlanta Exposition. Before that, I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In October 2009, Erik and I started dating. We’ve been together ever since. For almost a year now, we’ve been in a long-distance relationship; we try to see each other once a month or so, shuttling back and forth between Boston and San Francisco (and occasionally meeting somewhere in between). We first met at Amit's surprise birthday party almost three years ago.

And now: for the next ten weeks, I’ll be in New York City! I’m interning at Kickstarter and living on the Lower East Side for the summer. I love it here so far. I’m excited to see what the summer brings.

In the spirit of experimentation: still wondering about something? Ask me anything.
