My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm dynamic and I'd love to meet a dynamic girl.

By dynamic, I mean a love of learning and a desire to experience all life has to offer. A few things I recently crossed off my bucket list:

- I sequenced my genome for fun. Unsurprisingly, my genes suggest a high likelihood for red hair and blue eyes. More interestingly, I'm immune to HIV because I have two recessive CCR5 alleles, a genotype that occurs in 1-in-1000 people. A big recessive gene indeed.

- I attended a spinal fusion surgery hosted by a friend who sells medical devices. I got so involved that an attending surgeon introduced himself to me and asked if I was a new resident. I was more discreet after that.

- I noodled on my friend's priceless 18th-century violin (a Guarneri del Gesu if you're interested). I was initially scared to even hold it, let alone play it. Needless to say I've never sounded better as a musician.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an entrepreneur through and through.

I founded a startup that develops environmentally-friendly technology for storing energy. Because the sun doesn't always shine.

I also founded a startup that applies behavioral economics principles to health care. Because theory suggests people should never gamble if they know the house always wins.

I sound like Professor Frink from the Simpsons when I talk about either idea so ask if you want me to embarrass myself.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have traditional and non-traditional talent.

I can explain complex science to friends and family, I played classical music throughout my childhood and currently play in a community orchestra and various chamber groups, I am strangely capable of catching a football... There are others, but you'll have to ask.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm 6'3" and have wavy red hair. Whenever my friends and I are in a crowd, we agree to meet at me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have too many favorites to list, and too many for you to read, so I'll randomly pick three per category.

Non-fiction: Short History of Nearly Everything by Bryson, How Not to Be Wrong by Ellenburg, and Predictably Irrational by Ariely.

Fiction: Anna Karenina by Tolstoy, Game of Thrones by Martin, and Sherlock Holmes by Doyle.

Movies: Pan's Labyrinth, Silver Linings Playbook, and Last of the Mohicans.

Shows: Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, and House of Cards.

Music: Holocene by Bon Iver, To Kingdom Come by Passion Pit, and Runaround Sue by Dion.

Food: Baingan Bharta (Indian), Tom Kha (Thai), Smoothies (USA, I guess?).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My tennis racket - I plan to play tennis in a wheel chair.

Zyrtec - Pollen and I don't get along.

Adam and Dr. Drew podcast - A reminder of my formative years.

My viola - It's been with me since age 12.

Honey - Easily the best sweetener.

Steam room - This is weird, I know.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm always wondering about an object’s purpose, utility, or design. It must be the entrepreneur and engineer in me. I wonder aloud, also. My friends make me pay them $1 whenever I do; it’s the equivalent of a swear jar.

The sum of 1+2+3+... to infinity is somehow -1/12?! I've seen the proof, but I still don't believe it:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to check for fun and cheap (duh), but also different and interesting, things to do on Friday nights. I still hit up relaxed bars with friends, but I'm over crowded and sweaty meat markets.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friends call me "Mr. Bingley!" when they're excited to see me because of my resemblance to the character in 2005's Pride & Prejudice.

Another admission: I saw said film and found it delightful.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd love to meet a girl who is dynamic: sometimes brilliant, sometimes silly; sometimes graceful, sometimes seductive; sometimes challenging, sometimes supportive.

Message me if that sounds like you.
