Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just your prototypical-nonconformist.
I love science... like the real hardcore science with beakers and
labcoats and lasers. I do that. I also love drinking a few extra
drinks, staying out way too late, and making friends with
strangers. I do that too.
Music, art, sports... live music, new music, fast music (with lots
of respect for everything come before). I play guitar... can't
sing, so it's electric with the volume up. *If you can sing, play
bass, or drum... let's jam. I wish I was arty... my favorite people
are artists. I have no skill for visual art. I enjoy playing most
sports, but especially hockey and downhill skiing (yet I've moved
to Texas...). But, fuck the gym.
Philosophy, politics, and religion. Intellectual conversations do
it for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a post-doc here in Austin. In lab I'm trying to use
the intrinsic electrochemiluminescence of semiconductor
nanocrystals as a tool to investigate the fundamental aspects of
plasmonic nanoparticle Raman enhancement. I say this, because I
spend a lot of time on it. And now you understand the okcupid
When not in lab, I'm just trying to meet people, have some good
times, and keep riding the wave.
I like to take trips. Day-trips, weekend-trips, weeks-long-trips. I
need a local travel fiend (or friend).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pissing off cops - I'm not sure why. But they all seem to hate me.
Already got a court date here in Austin. **Edit: Make that two
court dates to look forward to. Oct 2nd and TBD.
Drunk bike riding - I've only crashed once, which cost me a
concussion and 6 stitches in my face, but other than that, I have a
near perfect record of making it home alive.
Downhill skiing - Raced from 7th grade through the end of college.
Then spent the last 5 years living in Iowa and now Texas, cause I'm
smart like that... but I still take trips out west every
Making things overtly sexual - Seriously, I can't stop. But I do it
Reading - Near the 8th grade level.
Sharing drunk food with random strangers - It's already happened
twice here in Austin. It will happen again.
Finding the clitoris - I'm not bragging, it's just happened more

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book genres; Non-fiction, historical fiction, science fiction,
Movies; Requiem for a Dream, and other movies that lack the mass
demanded happy ending. Star Wars being the exception.
Shows; The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Archer, Top Gear (BBC),
Legit... things I can watch for free online. (And yes, Battlestar
Galactica and Firefly...)
Music; I listen to bands you've never heard of. (Said as
pretentiously as possible)
Food; I only eat to survive. Free is best.
*** If you love to cook or explore restaurants, please don't
be offended. I can recognize and respect good food, but typically
all I'm looking for is the hurt in my stomach to stop.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've tried to make this list better a couple of times... but I kind
of hate this question.
Music, Bluebird Powder, Bikes, Beer, Books... Alliteration
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The wonders of the Universe...
"stands at the sea, wondering: I a universe of atoms
an atom in the universe."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Anywhere people are laughing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a duvet for my bed.
