I'm still trying to wrap my head around life. The title of this blog captures about where I've gotten to as of yet. Read about my adventures.
20 June 2008
left NY for points East
Finally made it to Kathmandu - it's a really crazy place. I won't write long since we need to grab some food and get over to chabad. We overnighted in the Dehli airport and flew out at 6:30 to Kathmandu but couldn't land b/c of clouds, so we went back to Dehli and then returned to Kathmandu. All in all we were in transit 36 hours. But we are glad to be here, its a real trip, in all senses!
I started blogging when I took a year to intern all over the world, which surprisingly did help me figure out what I want to do. It started with a 10-week internship at Credit Suisse as a Quant/Trader, then with Microsoft Research Labs in India, followed by a 5 month stint with Technicolor's Paris Research Lab, ending with a 4 month internship with Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. (Okay so it was more than a year, sue me). Since then I finished up at Columbia University, helped co-found a startup, and am doing a postdoc at Princeton. Watch to see where I go next (or read my archives to see where I was).
Accompanying me is my wonderful wife Linda Lantos, a whole foods chef and food educator. She learned lots in India, served as a delegate at the 2009 Slow Foods conference in Turin, Italy, after which she joined me in France and attended Ecole Gastronomique Bellouet Conseil De Paris where she studied pastry. Now she is doing all sorts of super-cool culinary & educational stuff.
