I can name that tune in five notes, laugh at the slightest provocation, and picked my college based in part on a well-timed episode of "The Price is Right." I've lived and worked in Jerusalem, Belfast and London, leaving me with lingering addictions to Israeli pop music, Irish junk food, and English soap operas. I like to show off my sharpshooter vision by favoring artsy-fartsy films with subtitles. I'm allergic to most animals, so I trained my dander-free baby brother to play Fetch. I love sampling foods with names I can't pronounce, but don't care for yogurt or citrus fruit. I try hard to leave the world a slightly better place than I found it.
