I'm at a pretty demanding point right now in my professional life. I just started a PhD program at Duke in the Neurobiology Dept., and am training for a career in academia. To compound my professional nerdiness, I also enjoy things like D&D, Battlestar Galactica, fantasy RPGs, etc. I can also get pretty nerdy about music (yeah, I read Pitchfork, and am not ashamed).
I consider myself an intelligent person, and this is important to me. I graduated cum laude from Columbia University with degrees in Neuroscience and English literature (mostly specializing in the English Renaissance). Despite the demands of the program, I still try to read as much extracurricular literature as possible, and would be thrilled to meet a fellow avid reader.
I grew up in Durham, though I nevertheless feel socially adrift coming back here after living in NYC. It's my belief that everyone lives a different story and has something unique to contribute, so I'm looking to meet new people, learn from them, and hopefully develop a fulfilling relationship.
Also, I have strong opinions about pretty much everything. Sometimes, I can be overbearing about them, but I always love to have them challenged.
