Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
According to OK Cupid, I'm the Slow Dancer (DGLDm). According to
Myers-Briggs, I'm an INTJ. You figure out how to reconcile them
well, and you're one up in my book. Anyway, mainly looking for
friends...or to date someone special who does happen to come along.
Hey, it happens right?
Moved to Brooklyn a year ago after 5.5 years in San Francisco
(probably my most significant move since it wasn't related to
school). Still getting used to things like cold, snow, 24-hour
transit, and people always in a rush.
I graduated with my undergraduate degree from UCLA
in Marine Biology (why you see me
scuba diving!), and wrapped up my master's degree in public health
(specifically global environmental health) at Emory
. Commissioned into the
Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service, and here for a
It's been slow going settling into a new city that's so big in both
size and people, and where I don't want to go out half the year due
to either cold or humidity, so...help me explore!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just did a bit of a career shift moving from doing investigations
for the FDA to emergency response coordination. Still faking it
'til I make it, but I'm getting there. Also finally living on my
own so learning how to keep an apartment up on my own. It's kind of
awesome but also kind of lonely. :-( So in keeping with my marine
bio-ness, I finally set up a fish tank! Not very big, but it's nice
to have a little life going on.
I'm also pretty involved with the contemporary a cappella
started a group at UCLA, and working as a producer for the Varsity
Vocals International Championship of College/High School A
Cappella. So, if you love to sing
, hit me up!
Also, still dreaming for the day that I could be an Imagineer,
though I imagine that that ship has long sailed with my career path
and education. Ah well, I can still pretend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
learning about new things, and new people. So I guess it makes
sense that I'm a good traveler too, wherever I go, whatever the

I'm the quiet one who takes some time to warm up, but once I get
going, it doesn't stop.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
nothing in particular. i rarely think of anything too long. most
people think about the future...i think it's great to contemplate
it, but not to overthink it. after all, we can't really control
what may happen in the future. it's good to have a rough plan, but
i think that's about it.
otherwise, you'll usually find me thinking about nature
(specifically, the enormity of the ocean and how insignificant we
are...aka sitting on a rocky shoreline at sunset), health issues,
and music, specifically how to make a cappella better.
oh, and where my next travel plans may take me.

You're bored. :-p Or if you'd like to explore a neighborhood, play
board games, go food hunting...y'know, fun life things! Also, if
you're a Disney Parks fanboy like I am.
But I will say this....I'm kinda terrible at checking messages,
despite having the OKC app. If I don't respond for a while, I
promise I'm not ignoring you! :-/
