After getting my BA in math from NYU in 2006, I spent 4 years working as a professional musician. I've played drums on many records and toured the country several times. I believe that my time spent making music has prepared me well for a future in mathematics and academics. I'm currently a PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center, an adjunct lecturer in the CCNY math department, very busy, and quite happy.

I also play drums with the Brooklyn-based group Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers. We recently released our first full-length album on Knitting Factory Records, and it's been getting great reviews (New York Times, Village Voice, Spin Magazine).

I enjoy long-distance running. I've run several half-marathons and will be running in ran the 2011 NYC Marathon.

Here is a gratuitous music video I made with my old band. I'm the gorilla in the red underwear.
