In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors.  Most recent excursions feature a 22-mile hike from Stanford campus to the Pacific Ocean and a trek across Kilpatrick Hills in wild Scottish rain.  I also love reading fiction books, attempting to cook (it’s edible), and watching PBS TV shows (some favorites include Poldark, Sherlock, and Victoria).

I like this quote from Steve Jobs:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
