Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like music as much as I like science. Perhaps even more, but

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Seven months ago, this is what I wrote:
-wrapping up my undergrad degree in biomedical engineering
-helping run my campus radio station

spaceflight biz and music
-probably procrastinating on schoolwork.
It's changed since then:
- working in IT security at a Fortune 500 in the healthcare
- handling tech/social media for an LA beatmaker collective,
- writing about music at my friend's blog, Gruff Trade
- living life a day at a time
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

- passing for knowledgeable using Wikipedia knowledge

technology on the environment and society-at-large. The fluidity of

westerns. Synergistic soundtracks. Black comedy. Postmodern

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My mental and sensory faculties.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My rather fluid comfort zone leads me into pretty awesome
situations outside the norm, but also into pretty weird, and
possibly negative ones, too. "It was the best of times, it was the
worst of times..."
