My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Transplanted Oregonian (yes, we from Portland can be as weird as those on "Portlandia").

Former classical trombonist and private music teacher now in graduate school headed into animal conservation work. I love animals, and I'm excited to start a new career doing research and conservation for some of my favorite species! ... Plus it's pretty cool to be able to actually follow that childhood dream that always seems to be pushed aside for practical reasons.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I volunteer as a keeper aide at the zoo and a penguin keeper at the aquarium, I spend a lot of time in coffee shops writing, I geek out over documentaries.

I work weekdays as an Exhibition Chef. Fortunately, cooking is another passion of mine (I briefly considered culinary school), so it's not a "yeah, I work in food service," it's a "yeah, I AM a chef, and it rocks!"

I am in grad school for biology through Miami University (Ohio, not Florida) in a program where I take all of my in-person courses at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo ... so I have to drive to Ohio one weekend every month. But at least I get to spend a weekend at the zoo taking classes!!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... Being snarky and sarcastic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... The beard. Without a doubt. It has been called "epic" and "intimidating." You decide.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read A LOT! Fantasy is the first go-to, classic literature, crazy Zen Buddhism books (ie "Hardcore Zen," "Sit Down and Shut Up") ... I also have a thing for Westerns.

Movies: Anything David Attenborough has ever done. Classics (thank you Brattle for bringing me "It's a Wonderful Life") ... and I'll always have a soft spot for the original Star Wars and Star Trek movies. Generally speaking, I tend to avoid big box Hollywood films.

Shows: I actually haven't watched TV in a few years ... I liked This Old House and The Joy of Painting when I was a kid...

Music: Oh what a list this could be. Here's an abbreviated version based on just what's in my car: Sibelius, Bruckner, Ricky Skaggs, Slayer, Motorhead, Dio, Rammstein, Wild Cherry, Sly and the Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Clutch, Primus, Scottish bagpipes, African drumming, Ravi Shankar, Michael Buble, Big Bad VooDoo Daddy, Megadeth, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Prong, Cake, Godsmack, Lamb of God.

Other Audio: I LOVE Old Time Radio shows, so I figured they deserved a spot on here. I also really enjoy listening to audiobooks during long drives such as Wayne Dyer and Thich Nhat Hanh.

Food: Anything Asian (as long as it's vegetarian). I could eat at My Thai Cafe everyday and die happy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
~ Animals of any kind
~ Hiking boots
~ Books to read
~ Music to listen to
~ Paper and pen for writing
~ The ability to take a long road trip whenever I so desire
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If anyone but me actually bothers to read the entire profile before "liking" or sending a message.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I work at 5:30am on Friday and volunteer at the aquarium on Saturdays (and thus get up by 6am) I generally tend to go to bed by 10 on Friday nights. Saturday, however...that's where it's at!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... how about the fact that I have seen a LOT of musicals in my life and will even sing along? What can I say ... I have an older sister ...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
~ you enjoy good conversation
~ you lead a healthy lifestyle

Those are a MUST. Sorry, I just like being healthy physically and mentally and need to be able to share that with those around me.

... bonus points if you sing or play an instrument, or have at least a little punk/metalhead in you
