Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bay area native. After paying my dues in Philly for a few
years for school, I've decided that this really is where I need to
be. I'm no longer new to it, but I still love exploring the city -
taking advantage of the great weather and food. I'm pretty active;
I bike everywhere, and there's few things I'd rather do on a sunny
weekend than a hike and a picnic. I'm a generally upbeat and
energetic person, and I probably put too much energy into making
sure everyone gets along. I love thinking about things and learning
how others think about things. That last bit makes me sound deeper
than I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was a biology major and worked in a cardiovascular disease lab at
UCSF for a bit after college. After determining that research
wasn't for me in the long run, I crossed off a bucket list item and
worked at one of my favorite food places in the city for a year! It
was really, really awesome...the people...the food...just doing
something totally different. I actually learned a lot more than I
was anticipating, too, because it called upon such a different
skill set than I had ever needed. I missed science though. I
recently returned to that world and work at a biotech startup in
South SF. I'm pretty set on applying to genetic counseling programs
in the near future, but I'm also pretty happy with my life right
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking! I've had more than a few people tell me that I need to open
a bakery (but then I couldn't eat the batter!). I even made a name
for myself when I worked at one of the city's better known dessert
hotspots. I'm not on glutenfreesingles for a reason...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right now, my absolute favorite book is Far from the Tree by Andrew
Solomon. He has an awesome Ted Talk that hooked me in (so check it
out!). In general, I mostly read nonfiction along the likes of
Michael Pollan and Jon Krakauer. I like watching movies with other
people, especially bad scary movies and documentaries. I watch
pretty much every Daily Show and Colbert Report on hulu and love
Top Chef. As for food, I have to admit I'm pretty into those fancy
places that name the farm/variety of carrot they're using. I'm also
a fan of Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, Mexican, Greek...but with these
places, it's usually the less fancy, the better. Oh, and ice
cream's pretty good :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
besides the gimmes...
1. my bike
2. my kitchen aid mixer (Named Paula, after Paula Dean...before
that whole thing :/)
3. my watch
4. a good podcast
5. dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
As much as I try to live in the present, I'm a planner and tend to
spend too much time thoroughly thinking things through and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I do enjoy going out and dancing, but I'm usually more game for
trying out a new restaurant and then watching a movie or just
hanging out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This isn't so much private as it would be surprising if you
me. I have a tattoo. It's of a mitochondrion.
