Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you want to be a Badger, then come along with me by the bright,
shiny light, by the light of the moon. GO BADGERS!
So, yeah, lots of UW school spirit here.
When not excessively stoked about sporting event outcomes, I'm a
scientist. I try to rationally think about the world at all times.
It's difficult. I fail, because I am a human, and we are squishy
bags of water and emotion. But the effort is worthwhile, I
Introspection like this is the kind of thing you can bury yourself
with, so I copped out and asked a couple friends for a one sentence
summary of me, and here are the results (so far):
"Well, I would say you're a kind, thoughtful, sometimes a little
over-analytical scientist with a big brain and a big heart and a
really awful sense of humor."
"I think you're very passionate and dedicated, and you want to
strive for the best in everything."

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Thinking probably too much.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm changing this to, "Six things I wouldn't ever want to be
without," cause I think that's more revealing of me as a

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being a "grown up"
Why people (including me) are the way they are
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either hanging out with co-workers (I have a very social workplace,
which is awesome), chilling with friends, or catching up with
friends online. Most of my friends from grad school are pretty
busy, but lots of people have time to talk on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Actual admission: If my falsetto is having a good day, I can sing a
mean rendition of "I Will Survive."
Sarcastic admission: Here are all the things my warped sense of
humor wanted to write in this space:
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every Step you take
I'll be watching you
When I was a little kid, my mother told me not to stare into the
sun, so once when I was six, I did.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world
he didn't exist.
"We cannot be perfect, but if we chase perfection, we can achieve
excellence." That quote is inspiring to me, and I wish I felt it
more deeply than I do.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Anything I've written intrigues you.
You equally appreciate the work of Haber, Euler, Bach, and
I've written you. I know, I know, women get too many messages to
respond to all of them, but I really try to put thought into each
message I send, try to say something reasonably intelligent and
observant, and express genuine interest in someone as a person with
each message. I don't want to sound like a prime example of male
privilege and say I feel entitled to a response, but I'd like to
say, I probably spent at least 5-10 minutes writing your message.
Even if you aren't interested, I'd like to ask for a polite note.
On the other hand, if you read my message and didn't feel like I
actually expressed interest in getting to know you and just sent
some sort of generic note, tell me, cause really, I didn't do that,
and I'd hate if that's the impression I give off. And I'd like to
do better next time.
