I have a lot of very random, very specific hobbies and interests besides research – below is a little smattering of artifacts from some of the things I get up to on a sporadic basis if you’re curious to learn more!

  • I create choreographed “dances” and synchronized light shows for some of my favorite songs through the virtual-reality rhythm game, Beat Saber ( 1 2 ). And, sometimes, mildly popular videogame streamers spend a lot of time playing them!

  • I track, analyze, and visualize personal health data with varying¬†degrees of seriousness (animated gif below)

  • I compile, edit, and digitally publish the thoughtful reflections of my brother (a “real” doctor) regarding his medical training into books available on Amazon (¬†1 2 3 )

  • I explore simulations of space through the SpaceEngine program and share relaxing snippets of my travels for others ( 1 2 )

  • I continue to play around with random graphic design tasks for friends, family, and old co-workers ( 1 2 3 4)

  • I play too many instruments (none particularly well) and I sometimes share guitar tabulature that makes it easier for others to learn songs I love
