My self-summary
I am a scientist. I am analytical and turn things this way and that and look at them from many angles and perspectives. This also makes me open-minded, I do my best to consider multiple points of view. An unavoidable side effect of this is that I can be prone to thinking too much, but I try to keep this to a dull roar.

I hope you haven't yet put me in your scientist "box", as I am probably one of the more expressive people that you'll ever meet. I am really good at wonder and amusement and wear my heart on my sleeve. Seriously, it tends to surprise people.

I was married for most of my 30s up until a couple of years ago and have found this internet dating deal strange to say the least. I seriously feel analog in this arena, but I'm going to blame the arrival of summer for bringing me back and filling me with hope and promise and all that. I'm not sure what I want from this experiment, but I like engaging with interesting and smart people and appreciate how that changes my perspective and expands my world, so here I go again...
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring it out as I go. Doing the best that I can. Research pays the bills. Otherwise, I garden, cook, read fiction/literature, ride my bike about town, see music, dance, hike around with my dog, hang out with friends, go on swimming hole adventures, camp.
I’m really good at
Not taking myself too seriously. Smiling, laughing - I am easily amused. Dancing, if the music hits me just right. Sciencing, yes it's a verb now (just ask my favorite web comic). Trying new things.
The first things people usually notice about me
In general, my smile, which I've deduced from all the smiles I get back. Currently, that I shaved my head. It's fairly noticeable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books, movies, music, and food. But only the good ones. If you love good books, movies, music and food we should get along great.

Most recent movie watched: Joe (it was brutal)

Current favorite book: Tinkers

Most recent show: Califone in a living room

Listening to: War on Drugs

Food: tacos, Thai, sushi, pizza, my mom's red velvet cake

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to best live life. Words. Stories. Sex. Love. Science. Landscape. The present. Time. People and their behavior and motivations.

Hmm, good question. In my experience, life hasn't proven to be so typical...
