My self-summary
Oh I suppose I'm just trying to figure out this life thing like everybody else. Above all else I respect intelligence and honesty. I really enjoy nature, the fascinating creatures that make a living on this planet, and going out to camp, hike, and kayak (yes I really enjoy nature so this isn't the obligatory statement saying I do that all dating site profiles seem to have). I hope to try and explore all of the river systems and national/state parks in Alabama before I relocate or die.

As a child I moved around quite a lot. I've lived in Florida, Colorado, Germany, and now reside in Alabama. The opportunities I've had to live in different parts of the country and abroad have definitely molded me into the person I am today. Germany was a beautiful country that was very community-oriented. The food, scenery, and friends were generally awesome and if I were presented the opportunity I would probably move back.

I enjoy fine dining, craft beers, and ethnic food. I'm on a quest to find the tastiest gyro in Birmingham. I recently discovered fine dining and this city has a lot to offer in that department. The concept that food is more than something to provide energy throughout the day is new to me, but my eyes are officially open. I'd love to find someone to share the adventure with.

As an added bonus I'm also a huge gaming nerd. I like story-driven Western RPGs. There is something I enjoy about the classic epic hero quest in a richly developed world, be it of the Tolkienesque fantasy, dark fantasy, steampunk, or sci-fi variety. I favor PC games and my two all-time favorites have to be Baldur's Gate and Planescape Torment. If you have any idea what either of those games are then props to you.

Unfortunately, my job/school keeps me pretty busy and so my social life pays for it. I'm a biologist in the biomedical field. As such my life revolves around honest critical evaluation and I strongly favor the former over being driven by emotion or faith. I'm also openly an atheist, so if you have a problem with that do not contact me. I have no problem with religious people, but I will not change my opinion for someone. Did I mention I strongly dislike conservatives? Not all of them mind you, but certainly the vocal ones. It's really unfortunate Alabama is full of them. I may love my state, but I hardly care for a majority of the people here. It's the ignorance and complete willingness to loudly shout their uninformed opinions that bothers me the most.

So yeah I'm a progressive liberal atheist nerd in Alabama. Some may say, "Haha good luck with a date you heathen". Yeah well.... Fuck you and your quest for social ideological homogeneity. I'm basically looking for a person to share my life with that shares some of my interests and understands my career path is something that takes a lot of time and dedication, but if we click I will happily dedicate what remaining time I have to trying to foster a strong relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a doctoral candidate working towards my Ph.D. in biomedical sciences. This involves full-time research and taking classes among a thousand other hoops that I have to jump through, but I love science and I wouldn't change my career for anything. I am not certain if I will enter into industry or pursue a life in academia, but I have at least 5 years in Birmingham before I make that decision.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty intense listener and make great eye contact when I feel like someone needs to vent. I suppose that's a random trait to mention, but it's been pointed out enough that it's worth noting. I'm also really good at showing up on time and getting things done.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a big smile and a friendly demeanor when I talk to people (but I do not actively engage strangers very often at all). It's not a condescending smile though! Sometimes I worry it is construed as such.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy most popular science books and occasionally fantasy literature (I don't get much free time to read what I like these days). I enjoy movies based on real life that expose me to a new culture (e.g. City of God). In the realm of television, I really like Venture Bros., Parks & Recreation, Farscape, and Home Movies. Music I am not too picky about and I've jumped from genre to genre over the years. I'm not a big fan of rap or country. Favorite food includes greek, thai, and sushi.
The six things I could never do without
1. The internet
2. The weekend
3. Alabama's amazing biodiversity and river systems
4. Spring/Fall (Winter is depressing in AL, and Summer is too damn hot)
5. My family
6. NPR
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My field of biology. It's pretty much a prerequisite for scholarly work and I find it invades my thoughts even when I do not want it to. Also, I reflect on the quality of my life in the context of contentedness and if I'm working towards my goals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Heading out for a weekend trip or enjoying a quiet night in with film and video games. I'm not into the whole go out a party thing anymore. I did enough of that in college and while I occasionally enjoy drinking, it's just not for me at this point in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do not handle stress well sometimes and have anxiety attacks.
