My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After about eight attempts at this profile, I've decided I'm hopeless at writing about myself. So here goes!

A few fun facts about about me:

-I once came in second-place in a pie eating contest
-In my life I have owned no fewer than three Kenny G albums
-For one day in 2009, I was a multi-millionaire
-I've sung Bohemian Rhapsody exactly nine times for Karaoke
-My childhood pets included, but were not limited to, a pot-bellied pig, two ferrets, and a rabbit named Bunnicula

Also, I lived in NYC until recently and it was an amazing experience, and I love talking about it. I'm sure my friends will tell you its annoying and they're probably right, but I'm shameless in this matter. So please ask me all about it :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on a PhD in psychology, specializing in contemplative neuroscience. I haven't nailed down my dissertation yet, but its involving research into meditation practices that cultivate compassion and empathy, and the benefits of these to our nervous system.

I do some training and consulting occasionally and am in the process of offering training in mindfulness and meditation in the workplace on a regular basis, hopefully by early next year.

In my free time I cheer for my Hawks, Dawgs, M's and, yes, even Sounders now. I hike and backpack, I read sci-fi, I flail about in my primitive attempts at cooking food more complex than Trader Joe's stir fry. I just finished season 5 of Game of Thrones and now I don't know what to do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Public speaking. This has been a big part of my career and I love doing it! I get a rush out of getting up there. And I'm a big sucker for embarrassing karaoke.

I also like to write, and think I have some talent at it. I blog (rarely these days with school), and I'm always working on book ideas that sound glorious when I talk about them but mysteriously never seem to get written...

Being quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books could go on for pages! Some greatest hits:

I'm a big big sci-fi fan. I love me some Frank Herbert and Isaac Asimov. Card is really high on my list, even though I'm not totally comfortable with some of his political views. And Neil Gaiman. And Phillip K. Dick is amazing! I definitely need to read more of him. Also Tolkien for the win.

Non-fiction-wise I read a lot of meditation-oriented material, both for school, and because awesome. Also a lot of history, and some political and intellectual history stuff. But mostly sci-fi because I'm a big nerd.

TV: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Simpsons, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Star Trek, Sherlock

Movies: Lots and lots and lots. Besides, you read my book and tv lists so I'm sure you can guess these yourself.

Food: Yes please!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The meaning of life, zen (paradoxically), what the hell is really going on
