Hello world!

I’ve been thinking about starting a personal/professional blog for a little while now, but I’ve never gotten around to it in any serious capacity. I don’t really know where this blog will lead, but I’m glad that you, dear reader, will share the road with me. I cannot promise updates with any regularity, nor can I promise and consistency in terms of quality or content, but I hope that you, dear reader, will find these posts interesting .

My name is Noah. I live in Montreal. I am almost 30 years old.

I’m working towards a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering (thesis-based) at Concordia University. I study systemic risk — specifically, I’m working on a project related to how sewer systems react to storms.

I work part time for a startup called Tryb. We are based out of the District 3 Innovation Center. I work as a Scrum Master, which is Lean/Agile/Startup speak for “Project Manager”. I spend a lot of time asking questions to my crack team of developers, and trying to get out of the way. I like my job.

I enjoy video games! I’ve been messing around with them on my computer since the days of DOS. Commander Keen, Pharaoh’s Tomb, and anything by Apogee (now 3D Realms) was my jam. I have a modest collection of SNES games, and am still searching for a copy of Earthbound. Lately, I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim and Civilization V.

Strategy interests me, and I am trying to improve my chess game. I own a well-thumbed and much-beloved copy of The Art of War. I probably spend too much time reading the news. I do that via Twitter.

I am a Jew. I am trying to figure out what this means.

I think we should settle space. I think XCOR’s Jeff Greason has given an excellent speech about how that should happen.

I think culture is the gem of humanity.

I am grateful that you, dear reader, are still paying attention!

I am a little bashful that I have written an entire post about myself.

Welcome!
