Now.

Last year, I moved to Somerville, MA, to live with Sarah. It was hard, because I had to leave my wonderful friends in San Francisco. I miss my roommates, in particular, even still. By December, after a long deliberation, I decided to leave Facebook.

Up until recently, in what has become a lovely tradition, I took months of unpaid vacation after leaving a stressful job. Before the latest plague, I had been going to cafes, reading magazines, auditing some classes, and meeting old friends and new. After the plague, I founded a book club, started writing more, playing games, and organizing.

Now, I’m working on an election-related job until the end of the year. I lead data engineering for a group that is testing the effectiveness of different ads, and then sharing the results with other D-aligned groups that value that information.

Now, I’ve been even more focused on a few projects. Matchmaking (of many kinds), thinking, running a book club, and more. Join me!

It’s not all labor, though! I’m taking longer walks. Playing games alone and with friends. Bridge, Hanabi, and Dominion are my favorites to play together.

I’ve started getting closer to the Jews of Color, Mizrahi, Sephardic Caucus of a local jewish social justice organization, and thinking more about a brown immigrant jew.

Speaking of friends, I’ve started my correspondence habit again. Emailing, but also writing longhand letters. Tell me your address and you might get a surprise note in the mail.

This is a “now” page, as opposed to a “then” page or “about” page. You can also read about my current projects, my pre-2020 life, or just go to my latest update.
