Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an ENTP, but it's flexible.
-Sometimes I like to run around barefoot in the rain.
-Sometimes I like to bike in hailstorms.
-I used to be able to back-flip on the ground, but it's been a
couple years I've tried this.
-I've played a ninja on TV.
I have been characterized as "geeky/indie/political/progressive". I
ride my bike everywhere and I'm contemplating selling my car
because it just sits alone and sad in my driveway.
I've just recently come to realize that "awesome," "super cool,"
and "!" are common occurrences in my vernacular.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right right now, I'm on vacation with my family. First time in
Europe! It's also a great way to add to my visa count. I'll be back
in Colorado in August!
I'm finishing up a master's program in Environmental and
Sustainability Engineering. After that, onwards to a PhD!
Aside from classwork and research, I run a student org (Engineers
for a Sustainable World (ESW)) on campus. I'm a member of ESW's
national team as the liaison for chapters in The West. I probably
spend more time volunteering at ESW than I do on my grad
I also burn time by going on moderately long biking trips and rock
My goal this summer: bike 1000 miles while dealing with a thesis
and 7 weeks of non-bikeable vacation. Already 75% there!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Getting way over my head in deep discussions.
2. Scrabble (and apparently Bananagrams)
3. Parenthetical asides
4. French Toast
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm Asian? Actually once I get to talking, people tend to
notice that I'm pretty good-natured and quite nerdy, usually in

I like a lot of things and I'm not snobby about most stuff, except
for Vietnamese and Chinese food since I get the real stuff at home.
Also, I've just gotten into a major acapella kick which isn't
helped by the fact that I've just discovered Spotify.
An abridged list of media I love right now:
The New Girl
World War Z (book, not the movie)
Pop music (mostly the danceable portion)
The Omnivore's Dilemma
Game of Thrones
Terminator (1, 2, and the TV show)
This American Life
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Intelligent conversation
4. My Bike
5. The Internet
6. Something to listen to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can change the world. There might have been just a few hints
here and there throughout this profile, but I'm sort of
"environmentally conscious" and my goal is to engineer a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about in the city, but the event varies. Alcohol is usually
involved to some degree.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My secret to karaoking is to pick a song that everyone sings to,
thereby drowning out my voice. The Backstreet Boys generally serves
this function well.

question pops up. It doesn't even have to pertain to me, such as
"What does purple taste like?" or "Could God make a doughnut so big
even He couldn't eat it?"
