Who am I? Short version: a part time writer and full time
scientist. long version?...
Friends describe me as funny, honest, caring, and morbidly happy.
That last one puzzled me for a while but it makes sense.
I've learned enough to realize I know almost nothing. I enjoy
trying new experiences and exploring wherever I happen to live.
Research, martial arts, and writing keep me busy but I always make
time for my friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently earning a PhD in epidemiology at MUSC, training for
my next mud run, and meeting new people.
I’m really good at
Mixing Southern and Mexican flavors into my cooking. Singing for
fun regardless of the situation. Messing with hardware.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor... and apparently I look like Jim Carry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Road to Damascus, Ishmael, Lamb: the Gospel According to
Biff, The Last Wish, The Screwtape Letters, and a lot of other
Movies: A Bridge Too Far, Cabin in The Woods, I am Legend, Bruce
Almighty, and a lot of b-grade horror and sci fi movies. I have
wonderful taste in horrible entertainment.
TV: Castle, Man Vs. Food, Anger Management, and The Big Bang
Theory. Documentaries are a weakness of mine too.
Music: I mostly listen to country but I also enjoy classic rock and
bits of other genres. Lonestar, Lady Antebellum, Skillet, Hinder,
Bon Jovi, and Lindsey Stirling.
The six things I could never do without
Six things I can't do without? Philosophically speaking I need
nothing. However; we all know that's not true. So let's do a top
six list, cause people still read those right?
1- Family, they have always been there for me and I would not be
here without them.
2- Running Shoes, they are comfortable and great when you have 5
minutes to get to a seminar.
3- Paper. I need paper to jot down research ideas, characters, and
new plots when they pop into my head.
4- Pen. Pretty much the same reason I need the paper.
5- Beautiful scenery, keeps me sane at the office.
6- My bokken, I use it to keep in shape, meditate, and practice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My research, what song would be fun for karaoke, what flavors will
work well in tonight's dinner, or what come next in my latest story
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying out a new restaurant or bottle of wine, hanging out with
friends, or singing karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy writing science fiction and fantasy more than any other
You should message me if
If you enjoy paradoxes, wine, or nature.
Alternatively if you're looking for a friend, casual dating, or
someone to explore Charleston and share news experiences with.
