Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hoosier native (from Anderson), graduated from Purdue
University with genetics
degrees (psych minor) in 2002, and have been working in Indy for 13
years. I enjoy a fairly easy, low-stress life with excellent
friends and family. Nonetheless, I love meeting and learning from
new people. So here I am!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a cytogenetic technologist, doing chromosome analysis for
clinical testing purposes. Aside from that bit of glamor, I kill
time with basketball, books, hiking, photography, kayaking,
, long afternoon
(I'm always looking
for someone to hit with!) and visiting my friends that have settled
down in some sweet cities. It's a rough life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...Picking out the best cheap wines. Pacing. Answering rhetorical
questions. Running up the score in Cricket (darts). Making Rice
Krispie(R) treats. Cat-juggling
, especially on the N64
(do people still do that?). I'm also a good luck charm for girls
that are looking to get married -- they seem to get engaged to the
guy they meet right after me. Not sure what that means; now
Please no hate mail: I don't really juggle cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My variety of obnoxious laughs, my energy, and my general desire to
please. I've been told that I smell good by people that generally

Books: I'm an Amazon junkie -- I love me some books. Mostly
nonfiction, but I've been enjoying some disturbing fiction lately
-- The Girl Next Door (Jack Ketchum) will haunt me for
Movies: Wristcutters: A Love Story, American Beauty, American
Psycho, Bad Santa, The Boondock Saints, A Clockwork Orange, Eternal
Sunshine..., Fight Club, Frailty, Gummo, Identity, Memento, Monty
Python and the Holy Grail, Oldboy (and Asian vengeance films in
general), Pi, Primer, Requiem for a Dream, Reservoir Dogs,
Supertroopers, Waking Life...
Music: I don't know what I like anymore; Pandora will play the
worst rap then a beautiful song by Cœur de pirate. I seem to like
them both. But NPR is my radio/podcast go-to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My camera, a trail, autonomy, and three beers?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should have said. The DJIA. Morality sans superstition.
Where I'm traveling to next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...at the IMA, a dive bar, or a friend's house, adult beverage in
hand. Perhaps hiking and camping. I definitely don't mind staying
in and watching a movie or two from time to time. Lately people
have been coming over to drink my wine and play darts, and I'm
always down for that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A girl once gave me a bloody nose with my own boxing gloves. It was
the hardest I've ever been hit, and probably the closest I've ever
come to falling in love.

dating. You live in a cool city and have a spare couch!
