My self-summary
I like intellectual discussions about science politics, and philosophy. Both reading and video games are some of my go to activities when I need a break.

But I also like being spontaneous and going hiking and being outdoors, going out on random adventures, and traveling. I have been to 49 out of the 50 states and a dozen countries, and I plan on traveling to much more whenever I have the money and time to.

As part of my passion for science I am very attentive to details and normally perceptive when it comes to the people I care about.

Personality wise, I am INTJ/P, for those of you that know/care about that sort of thing. Generally, I am a relaxed, but serious person. Fairly introverted, but still out going. Funny, ambitious, and thoughtful would all be words that my friends have used to describe me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a grad student at UCR studying fungal genomics and bioinformatics.

I am also in the process of getting back into shape after a couple years of inactivity. So far I am 20 lbs toward my goal weight.
I’m really good at
Trivia, and Science
The first things people usually notice about me
My size. There is a running joke about my viking like stature and appearance.

My T-shirts, my interactions with strangers start with the words "I like your t-shirt".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In terms of books, I tend to stick to the scifi and fantasy genres. Favorite authors include Jim Butcher, Terry Brooks, Chrisopher Paolini, Phillip Pullman, G RR Martin, Heinlein, Vonnegut, Orwell, and Douglas Aadams. I do read outside of the scifi/fantasy genres, but my favorite books and authors seem to be exclusively there. I read pretty frequently and I tear through new books quickly, so I am always looking for new books to fill my kindle, so if you have any suggestions by all means send them to me.

For movies, I am kind of all over the map. It's difficult to pick out just a few, but here goes: The Holy Grail, The Princess Bride, Galaxy Quest, Frequently Asked Questions about Time Travel, The Matrix. I also have a soft spot for B horror and scifi movies.

My favorite shows stay pretty much in the Sci Fi family. Star Trek, Doctor Who, X Files, Furturama, Farscape, Stargate etc. Currently, I watch Game of Thrones,Archer, and Big Bang Theory, among others. I do enjoy other genres though.

For me, good music is good music regardless of genre. If you look at my collection there is everything from classic rock to techno. I have a pretty damn large collection of music spanning many decades.

I enjoy food from all over. Particularly Indian, Mexican, and good Chinese. I'm also a fair cook in those cuisines too, or at least the first two.

For video games, I mostly play rpgs like Dragon Age, Fallout, or Elder Scrolls series. A few strategy or platformers games here and there. I very rarely play FPS's, but I make an exception for Borderlands and Bioshock. Generally, I like games that tell a good story.
