My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Native Coloradan. Still described as 'crunchy,' and still consider a good fleece jacket to be high fashion. I tend to put function over form. I have a love of plaid, but I'm not a hipster. Studied biology and history at a small liberal arts college outside of Philly. Swammer (ie ex swimmer). Overly ambitious amateur cook. Voracious NYT reader/NPR-listener (pretty torn up over Carl Kasell's retirement from Wait Wait Don't Tell Me). New-found love of solo travel. I like to think I'm wittier in real-life than in text here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Graduate and medical school (yes both, yes it will take a while). Keeps me off the streets and out of trouble (seriously it's kind of a lifestyle. I'm pretty busy) I study how bacteria talk to each other, mainly by moving tiny quantities of liquid from one tube into another tube, over and over. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit of a workaholic. I get a lot of flexibility with graduate school but it comes at the cost of non-9 to 5 hours.

Outside school, I'm a year-round bike commuter (though the polar vortices did send me running to the el). I've gotten involved with the #enforce940060 campaign on Twitter (trying to keep cars out of the bike lanes).

As apparently everyone on OkC does, I enjoy traveling, so waste a good bit of time on Kayak. Also I'm somewhat obsessed with miles/points and am a decent travel hacker. I go to more concerts than probably medically advisable for my hearing, and dabble in the kitchen from time to time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spending time outside. I spent 5 days backpacking in Yosemite last year, and am angling for a week in Zion this fall. Yelling at cars in the bike lane. Knowing random trivia. Geography. Organizing events. Producing culinary delights. Saying that slightly inappropriate comment you were thinking but didn't want to say. Falling into Wikipedia black holes. Bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my bright 'please don't run me over' orange bike jacket. But that's kind of the point of it, now isn't it?

After that maybe my beard?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Things They Carried, Matterhorn, Arcadia. Recently finished "The Son," which was a fantastic historical fiction work. I've continued the historical fiction kick and am reading The Kept.

Music: The Hold Steady, Trampled by Turtles, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Expendables, Ted Leo, Pretty Lights, The White Panda, E-603, Todd Snider... I recently converted to Spotify so my listening can run from hyphy to old school country to electronica and back with alarming frequency.

Shows: Archer, Justified (could I rock a Stetson like that?), The League, Breaking Bad, Law and Order, Deadwood, Broad City

Movies: Cool Hand Luke ("What we have here is a failure to communicate...."), The Graduate, Snatch, The Italian Job

Food: Almost anything. Love trying new stuff. Particularly fond of good Mexican food and believe tacos should be in the food pyramid or whatever we have now. I'm also a firm believer that sriracha can fix all but the most extreme kitchen fiascos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good Food/Coffee/Bourbon/Beer (yup, i know this is cheating)
2. Music
3. My contacts. I'm pretty bind.
4. My bike. Things are pretty serious btw us.
5. The gym
6. My phone. I know.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I've forgotten to do at work.
What I want to listen to. Seriously. Spotify is such a great example of the paradox of choice.
What I'm going to eat/cook next.
Why so many people park in the bike lane.
How Chicago would be the perfect city if it had some mountains.
Whirled Peas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends how the week was. Sometimes I need a quiet night, but often out at a show. Or ironically drinking pbr at the local dive.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really terrible at tying my shoes. They always come undone. I should have stuck with velcro.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an interesting, ambitious and curious person. You can teach me a new skill or make me think about something differently. You are committed to whatever you do, and throw yourself into it (I know I do, and it keeps me quite busy so it's helpful if we're on the same page about that off the line). You know what's important to you and will fight for it. I'm attracted to people who take charge of their life, so send me a message if you think that's you. Mad bonus points if you pick your bike over the El. You actually read the majority of the above text.
