Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm getting my PhD in engineering (spoiler alert: I won't fix your
broken car, it is a bad idea insurance and health wise). I also
like science, art, history and philosophy and their permutations:
art history, science history, and so on ...
I like to draw and I'm pretty good at it (never got portrait
complains, although I normally draw dead people, and no I don't
"see dead people").
If you are interested in science/art/history or just go for a cup
of coffee don't hesitate to send me a message. I'm a grad student,
which pretty much equals to caffeine addict, so it is almost
impossible I refuse any invitation; "yes" is chemically engraved.
I'm learning how to dance salsa too, so if you want to help me
practice I would be completely willing to. If you don't know how to
dance salsa I can teach you some steps.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting my PhD to become a research scientist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cheering people up, chit chating, and cooking (although I normally
don't have that much time to do it). I prepare an awesome "beer
soup"; although it is non-alcoholic, alcohol vaporizes during
preparation, it has a great flavor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Glasses, yes I need them to operate heavy machinery; just like
drunk people need to be sober, i.e. by deffiniton. I've been
wearing them since 8th grade, so I don't really remember how is
life without a windshield.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- PLACES. My favorite place in the world is Tulum, a mayan ruin
next to the Gulf of Mexico. There, a mayan observatory at the top
of a cliff looks at the beach that smoothly blends with the sea.
That place is magical, if you ever have the chance, go to this
- MOVIES. I recently watched Silver Linings Playbook and Les
Miserables, pretty good movies. I'm a fan of comedies I enjoyed
Juno, When Harry met Sally, and 500 days of summer. I also like
sci-fi movies like Contact.
- ART. I just visited the MFA to see the Degas exhibit, which I
loved. I like the impressionism and love Van Gogh. I also like the
renaissance paintings. My favorite modern artist is Javier
- BOOKS. In general I tend to read about science related topics.
Recently I read The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer,
and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I'm currently reading
Chaos: making a new science. I love the books by Carl Sagan, and I
think that Cosmos is better as a book that it is as a TV
- RADIO. I love listening to podcasts, I'm currently addicted to
NPR's Radiolab and Freakonomics.
- FOOD. In terms of food I'm not really picky, but for some strange
reason I dislike the vegetable pear, so if you ever want to poison
my food just add some of it. I eat meat, although I don't eat beef
or pork frequently; I'm more of a chicketarian. I definitely don't
eat tongue, eyes, kidney and brains, so I would make a horrible
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Art (love to paint, draw, visit museums)
- Coffee, LOVE it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One of 3 options:
a) In a bar/dance club with friends
b) Catching up with Bones, House or Fringe
c) Doing experiments for my thesis
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like the science songs for children by They Might be Giants.
