My self-summary
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 invigorating.

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 fireplace.
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 browns on the weekends. I am trying to connect with my improvisational nature but I lean heavily on tried and true recipes. Smitten Kitchen is my culinary bible.

I also have a preternatural talent for remembering birthdays and making up silly science songs and bar trivia team names off the top of my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
When I'm feeling nostalgic, I reach for a mug of hot chocolate, an album of John Coltrane ballads, and a Calvin and Hobbes anthology.

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 on YouTube.
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."

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are thoughtful, expressive, introspective, and a bit goofy.
