My name is Shir, rhymes with beer. It means song in Hebrew, even though I can’t sing very well. I do love music, but even more I like to dance to music. Any kind of dance really. I started with ballet when I was 5, discovered jazz in middle school, and hip hop in high school. Then, in college at the University of Chicago, I found my inner Desi and fell in love with Indian dance. Lately, I’ve been channeling my latin side and I’ve taken quite a liking to salsa. Basically– I just love to move, it doesn’t really matter what style or form, as long as I’m enjoying myself.
When I’m not dancing I’m probably at work, coding away. I’m a software engineer and love it. There are few things that feel as good as finding a complex problem, solving it, then seeing your work live in production.
