I'm a second-year doctoral student in contemporary religious studies at Northwestern. I graduated in May 2008 with degrees in religion from Columbia and JTS, and I have experience in journalism and Jewish education. I've lived in London, Greece, New York, India, and Albany. I spend my spare time running, reading, enjoying great coffee, cooking, and relaxing with friends. I love Indian food, minor (and major!) league baseball games, travel, ice cream sundaes, white-water kayaking, and challenging myself - I've even been bungee-jumping in Nepal!
