Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nothing defines me more than my optimism. Naturally enthusiastic
and inquisitive, I find meeting new people exciting and
Much of my happiness comes from exploring the city's cultural
opportunities in food, music, and theater with those I love. These
days, you might catch me at a show at the Green Mill, the
Neo-Futurarium, or the Old Town School of Folk Music.
That's not to say I don't enjoy my quiet time -- I often find
myself feeling most content with a book by the water or my
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the workweek, I translate sneak previews of scientific
discoveries for the public as a writer for a national research
facility. Recently I have begun planning research centers in
addition to the sentences that describe them. I honestly love my
work and the people I work with.
In my free time, I enjoy getting my hands dirty at Ethiopian
restaurants or (in summertime) on the Massachusetts clam flats.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a few pastimes, though I seem to be spending increasing
accounts of time in front of my oven. I'm building my repertoire of
recipes, though I seemingly always want to make crepes or hash

making up silly science songs and bar trivia team names off the top
of my head.

When I'm feeling happy, I'll whip up some scallops in butter and
white wine, put on some motown, and dance in my socks.
If I need some light comforts, I'll eat a bunch of goat cheese
while watching an episode of Brooklyn Nine Nine.
If I'm ever a little lost, or lost for words, I turn to David
Whyte's poetry, Erich Fromm's essays, or the webcomic
"Subnormality," which is, I think, the best thing on the Internet.
Or maybe I'll just watch a Miyazaki movie or an Alan Watts lecture
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I run on a precise blend of sunlight and Wikipedia.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I will live to see any meaningful conclusions produced by
the Human Connectome Project (which seeks to map the brain) and
where I can find the best almond croissant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Because of my antics on the playground, the recess monitors in
kindergarten used to call me "The Kissing Machine."
