I’m Alex Zorach. Thanks for visiting! I’m on twitter; you can easily connect with me there.
I also run a number of other websites, including RateTea. I especially recommend checking out RateTea if you are a tea drinker: it’s more than just an interactive tea review website: it has a lot of carefully-researched information about tea, herbal teas, and health.
My personal and opinion website is Cazort.net, which is named for my middle name, Cazort. Nowadays I’ve been putting more well-thought-out material on this blog, however.
I think the quality of most people’s work speaks for itself. That said, some people care about educational credentials, so here are mine:
- 2008 – M.A. in Statistics, Yale University
- 2007 – M.S. in Applied Mathematics, University of Delaware
- 2002 – B.A. in Mathematics, Oberlin College
- 1998 – J.P. McCaskey High School in Lancaster, PA.
I am adamant about degrees alone being almost meaningless–it’s what you get out of your educational experience that matters. Personally, I learned more academically at Oberlin than I did in graduate school. And at every school, I learned a lot more from books, mealtime conversations, and contemplations while taking a shower, than I ever did in the classroom. At Yale, I basically learned statistics, and how different the Ivy League is culturally from the other schools I have attended, and from the rest of New Haven, CT. At Delaware, I learned a lot of things, including how to teach, how to birdwatch, and how to not come across as a complete eccentric.
