Random stuff I like:

Old French Music (recording)

I used to compose music in a French impressionistic style. Here is a piece I wrote as an undergraduate called “Cithern,” performed by the marvelous pianist, mathematician, and fellow graduate student (at the time) Adrian Banner at the GC dining hall at Princeton. It was supposed to be the first of 4 movements, but I never wrote the third and fourth.

Room Escape Games

I love room escape games and other types of puzzle games, particularly those that are easy for a kid to solve but might be hard for an adult.


Bluegrass music is excellent.


Particularly the high quality dark kind.

Old Houses

I'm a proud member of our local preservation society
