My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's start with college, and the whole "what am I going to do with my life?" thing.

I was undecided on my major for almost my first two years of college. I came in thinking that I might major in physics, because I'd liked it in high school; physics turned out to still be interesting, but to be pretty much all math. I don't have anything against math, but I don't enjoy it, so that was that. (Understanding the universe? Whatever.) Next, I went on to philosophy. Also interesting -- really interesting -- but I didn't see where I was going to go with that career-wise. The first major I actually declared was chemistry, and that was the same old story: interesting, but not quite the field for me. Around the end of my second year, I finally settled on biological sciences. I found life interesting to learn about (it can be ridiculously elegant), and figured that biology was the most practical field I could study in terms of applying my knowledge to something really important, like human health.

About a year before I graduated, I started thinking pretty hard about what exactly it was that I wanted to spend my future doing. I decided that I really didn't like the way that people start to break down and suffer once they reach an advanced age (say, 60-70), so I started to focus on the idea of overcoming diseases like Alzheimer’s.

For about the last three years, I’ve been working here in Silicon Valley for a biotech nonprofit that does age-related disease research. I started off as a lab technician, then moved out of the lab to run our student program. Most recently, I’ve been spending the majority of my time doing copywriting and editing.

That’s all been great, but I’ve recently found that I really enjoy programming. To that end, I’ll be moving up to San Francisco for a while in late 2013 to go to Dev Bootcamp. It’ll give me a chance to learn about programming pretty darn intensively, and should be a lot of fun.

When it comes to me as a person, I'm all for rationality and understanding the world (and myself). Intellectual stimulation can be great. I think it's important to be honest and open, and I'm totally behind the whole "do whatever you want as long as you don't harm others" concept.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Filling various roles for the nonprofit I work for in the hopes of helping to take care of the diseases of aging.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at writing, and at learning, and I'm pretty good at thinking and science. I think I'm turning out to be good at programming, too. Fingers crossed.

That I'm tall. Not crazy tall, but taller than the average guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: C. S. Forester's Hornblower series and Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series, The Three Musketeers, and the Wheel of Time series; I've always liked adventure novels. I also enjoyed Catcher in the Rye. Hamlet was great, and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell was pretty good, too.

Movies: My favorite is Fight Club, and Pulp Fiction was pretty amazing, too. I liked most of the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings movies, and really liked Inception. There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, The Prestige, The Departed, and The Matrix were all good. I really liked Zoolander and Bowfinger, too. Bladerunner was very good, also, as were the Bourne movies and The Social Network. Most recently, I liked Django Unchained, and the Star Trek reboots have been good.

TV shows: I usually like comedies. So I liked The Office (though less so during the final couple of seasons), and Parks and Recreation, and I've been really pleasantly surprised by Community. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are both fun. Also, Sons of Anarchy is pretty great. Arrested Development is one of my favorite shows, too (though I haven't watched the new fourth season yet), and I liked House of Cards. I've loved Game of Thrones, and have also enjoyed Dr. Who (though I haven't watched any of the old, original ones).

Music: The only thing I really don't like much is country. I like rock/alternative and hip hop. The Beatles were great, the Aquabats are pretty fun, Coldplay and Green Day deserve mention, and Jimmy Eat World, Linkin Park, Muse, and U2 have always been good. On the hip hop end, I usually like Kanye, Jay-Z, Chiddy Bang, Eminem, and e-dubble.

Food: I'm up for just about anything (I just don't like things that are really spicy). Italian is great, sushi is great, Thai can be really interesting... pretty much everything can be good. My official favorite food is pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet and good books are pretty important. Good food is nice, too, and a nice environment to work in. The right people are a really critical part of that environment. For thing number six, I'll go with my car, for the freedom to go places.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Philosophy, psychology, biology, computer science, and my job.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being kind of boring, often enough, and watching something on Hulu or YouTube. Other times, seeing a movie with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get bored pretty easily.
