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.
27 April 2009
For those of you who check the twitter updates, you'll know we've actually been in Morocco quite awhile now. The "new" posts are simply older material that I managed to finish up now. I've got no idea when I'll find the time to tell you all about our adventures here (and they have been plentiful and good) So don't be too confused and if you want the quick lowdown just check my twitter log which provides quick and up-to-date bytes and where and when we actually are.
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.
