Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A simple succinct summary: I'm fit, fast and funny. I might also be
overly fond of alliteration. I'm a transplant to the area and moved
out to AZ for grad school. My roots are back in the Midwest, but
over the past few years I've really come to love the desert
lifestyle. And heat is better than humidity any day. Plus I get to
see quail and other desert critters on a regular basis, which is
always a plus (well maybe not that mountain lion, that was
Since I am a perpetual student (PhD), it's safe to say that I'm a
big nerd. I know a bunch about math, statistics and agriculture,
but that's work related minutia. Movies and science fiction are
what really grab my attention. Sometimes I make obscure film
references during conversations and get overly excited when people
notice. I also devote a large portion of my free time to being
active. Big plus if you are into running. Hiking, trail running,
biking and kayaking are other outdoorsy interests of mine.
When I am not running, coding or sleeping, I like to spend free my
time reading, cooking, spotting hummingbirds, and playing trivia.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my PhD, getting data, binge eating and procrastinating
on RA research.

Running. I gots medals. Looking to get a few more and some race

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ionizing radiation, stupid algebra errors, endogeneity,
communicable diseases, chubby quail, glorious carbs...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing board games with friends or cuddling in bed and reading
research papers. I like to live life on the wild side.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still feel occasional guilt over killing a tadpole back in first
grade. Amphibians have it hard ya know.

You've ever had a math induced nightmare, think quail are awesome,
like being outdoors, or enjoy talking to people who tend to be a
tad nerdy. I would like to find a woman who can relate to my
energy, quirky humor, and love of the outdoors.
