5′ 8″ (1.73m)
Graduated from Ph.D program
English (Fluently), Spanish (Poorly)
My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a curious and calculated thinker with all the earnestness and peculiarities that come from growing up in the Midwest. I do a lot of bike riding, music collecting, and dragging absurd jokes on way too long. I'm also prone to escaping the city on the weekends. Outside is better than in. Even after the better part of a decade of vegetarianism, I still have a lot of dreams about fried chicken. I'm down for some fucking ruckus.

I moved to Boston from Ohio five years ago to go to school. A bizarre twist this year brought me suddenly to Eugene to finish it. I sloppily closed that chapter of my life and now I'm chilling in Columbus for a few weeks then headed to Madrid!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Tumbling blindly through and trying to make as much noise as possible.

I just earned a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at the University of Oregon with a focus on carbon materials research. I don't like to define myself by my work. But hey, if you want to nerd out, I'll nerd the hell on out.

Racing bikes, I guess.

Learning Spanish and moving to the other hemisphere soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mixing cocktails, fixing hangovers, fixing bikes, road trips, euchre, probably some more useful stuff too...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hair, pants with poorly patched crotches, how close I can come to falling over and still somehow manage to pull it out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right now I'm reading A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.

The first ones that come to mind (In the order that they slowly trickle on to my profile):

Books: Something Wicked This Way Comes, Eating Animals, Still Life with Woodpecker, The Road was pretty damn good, Island was my favorite book for years.

Movies: Bull Durham, Vernon Florida, Waiting for Guffman, Sonatine, Dancer in the Dark, Hellraiser, They Live, the Star Wars movies made before I was born, Sometimes I like to get really drunk and watch Constantine.

Shows: Twin Peaks and Regular Show. Most of my screen-watchin' time is spent looking for obscure and strange footage on youtube.

Music: Mates of State when they stuck to two instruments, JEFF the Brotherhood, The Books, Artichoke, Ween, Goblin, anything Kathleen Hanna touches, anything Jenny Lewis touches, The Zombies, Mean Jeans, Drive-By Truckers, Mathematicians, Pixel Panda, Shannon and the Clams, Austra, Liz Phair, Television, Animal Collective, Gillian Welch, Roky Erickson, and a whole mash of early American folk, garage, and bluegrass.

I've been trying to narrow down a top five (no order) albums list lately. So far it's:

-Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over The Sea
-Mathematicians - Level Two
-Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender
-Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting
-Death Vessel - Stay Close

...but that's hardly final.

Food: does Turkish coffee count? I'm going to count it. Moxie. Anything brined. Gingersnaps. Black licorice. If you want to make and drink Salmiakki Koskenkorva with me, that sounds like a pretty rad night.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
These are cliche, but kind of for a reason:

Composing music and writing, even though I've done very little lately.

A place to nest just a little, somewhere that's my own...with nice sheets.

Deep conversation without an agenda.

Sex. Creative, hot sex and lots of it.

Stars and breezes to remind me of my finiteness.

Old friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Colloquialisms and weird America. Local history of any sort really. At least that's what I've been thinking about today. If there are oddball Oregon landmarks, I want to know about them. Why OkCupid seems to think that I'm "old fashioned", which couldn't be further from the truth. Also the origin of that cool "S", you know the one.

How to best recover from the oregon outback tour I just finished.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Crushing bikes, riding weed, and smoking beers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd pretty much always rather be naked. You know, if the climate is appropriate.

I'm also on a much less wholesome social networking site.

Sometimes when I get really mashed, I yell at the moon. Not howling or anything, more like telling it to go fuck itself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a Spanish speaker and want to be my conversation buddy while I learn!

Also, I'll be honest, I'm leaving soon so I'm not looking for a serious long-term partner so much as someone to hang out with, have some solid adventures, and maybe do some casual canoodling.

You want one or more of the following:

to meet me.
to ride bikes.
to hang out on a porch until we run out of beer.
to talk to me behind the veil of the internet.
To show me around this magical new town.
to play old-people card games.
to fool around.
If you and your lovely partner are drunk at 4am and searching OKCupid for the word "threesome", you might be in luck...
If you want to make and eat a fancy sandwich.

The cheat code to getting me to respond is just being direct.
