Hi, I'm Chris. I live in New York.
I spent 18 years in finance. You can read about that here.
Favorite place I've traveled to is South Africa.
Born and bred New Yorker
My interest in cooking sways between just getting things on the table and the more scientific, a la Serious Eats. Also, love figuring out how to re-purpose leftovers and random ingredients that have been sitting in the fridge.
I have probably eaten less vegetables than anyone else you have ever known.
What I like to do:
Favorite Mountain: Whistler
Favorite Area: Utah, SLC area (Cottonwoods)
Pier 84, Manhattan - No, the Hudson is not gross!
Best Paddle: Circumnaving Manhattan
Nothing cool, almost all gym climbing and some Gunks
What I like to think about:
Oscillation between First Principles and Empiricism
Layers of Abstraction
Using analogs to communicate between teachers and learners
Tacit Knowledge / Naturalistic Decision Making
Automation / Iterative Improvement
