Varda Lazar (born—and until recently known as—Varese Layzer) is an analytical yet empathetic thinker.
Early life: Lazar was born and raised in New York City. She spent her childhood playing jumpsies, creating content matrices of Garfield characters, and doing Lewis Carroll's symbolic logic problems in her head. She attended public "gifted" elementary and high schools, then did a Ph.D. in her early 20s, which was published as a book.
Personal life: Lazar daily uses classical and operant conditioning and best practices from veterinary behaviorism to observe her difficult dog and help him feel safe.
Public opinion: When not eating cold brew vegan ice cream or listening to Echo der Zeit, she may be found working on a mammoth art project that one friend said "demonstrates determination, dedication, and creativity as well as a commitment to exploration and refinement over time."
