Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in a small rural part of St. Louis that turned into a
large suburb as I was growing up. I was the kind of person that was
part of the math club as well as on the varsity baseball team (both
high school and college!). I never got to travel as a kid with my
parents, so I'm trying to find ways to make up for lost time! I'm a
pretty big sports fan (baseball and basketball in particular), but
I much prefer playing to watching. I'm a really happy and
optimistic person. I love to have fun, but when something has got
to be done I take care of it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've always wanted to teach; when I first started college I wanted
to be a high school teacher. I ended up becoming so interested in
some of the things that I studied in undergrad that I decided I
wanted to teach university students, hence the Ph.D.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Ultimate Frisbee / Baseball
3) Remembering Song Lyrics
5) Math (I know, boring)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I always hear about my eyes! Beyond that, I'm an extremely open
person and will probably tell you almost anything you want to know
about me if you're willing to ask. I'm willing to try almost
anything; I'm comfortable in almost any situation and I love
finding new things to do and new hobbies.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My friends
6) Random Excursions
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I'm going to be when I finish my Ph.D., what new food I want
to try, what's the best place to go dancing, how much faster things
move on the east coast compared to the midwest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a nice cold beer or two with whatever friends are available,
either in preparation for a night at the movies or a night on the
town. I don't like to go out every weekend, but I love to go to the
occasional nice bar or dance club!
