My self-summary
A recent transplant from New England to SoCal, I am a gradstudent in chemistry at UCIrvine. I'm very quick-witted, have an all-encompassing sense of humor, and generally quite intelligent, book smarts and street smarts. I'm a very honest person who doesn't believe in hiding one's true feelings, and on the whole think if people were up front about things the world would be a better place. I tend to have a semi laidback, zen like approach to life, which is to say I'm fairly low maintenance and don't really get stressed about all too much. I find that what I find most attractive in a girl is personality; we have to be able to click and have chemistry.

When I'm not working, I enjoy going to the gym, driving and exploring the SoCal area, and watching movies/tv shows online. I'm a bit of a cinemaphile (bordering on pretentiously snooty, but I try to contain myself), and am a diehard Patriots fan.

Ooo! I also have synesthesia. It's pretty sweet.

The six things I could never do without
-NPR/This American Life
-The gym
-My car
I spend a lot of time thinking about
chemistry, The Patriots, how consistently nice the weather is out here, how good the chances are that I'll be able to buy myself commercial trip to space in my lifetime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having drinks with friends (somewhere) or having a casual, board-game centered night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate the Confession Bear meme.
You should message me if
you can tell me who I should call if there's something strange in my neighborhood.
