Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I aim to misbehave.
I am a really laid back person with a thirst for travel, craft
brews, and great restaurants. I love random adventures, and laughs
with good friends. I'm also really in to martial arts. I've
competed and trained all over, and am grateful for all the places
it has taken me. I'm currently taking a break from school and
working for a pharmaceutical company in Corvallis as a process
development chemist. Yes, I make drugs, but it's not as sexy as
Breaking Bad makes it seem...except when I'm singing along with
some Mary J. Blige while I synthesize.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently graduated with a degree in biochemistry and work as a
synthetic chemist making drugs for the man. It pays the bills, but
I'm more fond of traveling, training, writing, exploring new
restaurants, cooking, dancing without caring, making people laugh,
and forming legitimate connections. Life is immeasurably enhanced
by the bonds we form with other people. I love protracted
discussions about life over drinks and good food. It is one of the
best ways to really get to know people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dark humor and O-Chem. Sometimes I mix the two together.
The first things people usually notice about me

Depends on the social setting. If I'm around friends or any sort of
audience, then I'm rather gregarious and a showman. In one on one
settings, I'm generally much more reserved and attentive.
Physically, I get a lot if comments on my eyes, arms, and smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love anything that shakes me to the core. I look for art that
reaches out and gives you a visceral response. Things that
fundamentally shape your perspective on life. If you've got any
recommendations send them my way. But more specifically...
(A) I usually look to more dystopic books; Chuck Palahniuk being
one of my favorites. I also love Lord of the Flies, Slaughter House
Five, Jesus's Son, and a slew of others. One of my greatest regrets
as a science major is that I get very little time to read.
(B) Fight Club
, Groundhog Day
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
, I Heart Huckabees
, Scent of a Woman
, Pan's Labyrinth
, 10 Items or Less
, Dark Knight
, American Beauty
, The Devil's
. I really like too many to list them all.
(C) I've really gotten into a lot of experimental and progressive
rock. Stuff by Red Sparowes, Pelican, Explosions in the Sky
just to name a few. I'm also a big fan of Tool
, APC, Opeth, Pink Floyd, Cake, Led
Zepplin, and many more. I'm generally pretty open with music.
(D) I love exotic and spicy foods. I think Thai food
would have to be my favorite
ethnic cuisine though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good coffee.
2. Good friends/family.
3. Good food.
6. Artistic outlets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
