My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Before I get to anything else, let me lay this on the line: I am a huge nerd. Science curls my toes and math winds my clock. I have STRONG FEELINGS about the relative merits of 16-bit RPGs.

Being a nerd is hardly controversial in SF, but just in case I've managed to self-attach any negative stereotypes: I am also warm, kind, quick to laugh, and unwaveringly loyal to the people I love.

I spent a lot of my childhood outdoors, which imbued me with a deep and abiding fondness for the natural world. I am never more at peace than when I'm hidden under a forest canopy or high up on a mountainside. Favorite excuses for visiting nature as an adult: hiking, snowboarding, and skiing.

If I'm indoors, I'm probably reading or doing some kind of social gaming (board games, card games, you name it). I'm also returning to Muay Thai after a decade-long hiatus. The near future will doubtlessly unroll as a tapestry of skinned knuckles and bruised shins.

Animals easily command my attention. I will happily cross the street to befriend a stranger's dog. In fact, I think we could all take some lessons from dogs: enjoy the present, be excited about everything, and lick your own junk when given the opportunity.

I'm also pretty upset because OkCupid clipped the final "1" off of my name. It was SUPPOSED to end in "1000101".

(This matters if you parse it in binary.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living my childhood dream of doing physics at a national lab. Specifically, I sit in the captain's chair at the main control center of a particle accelerator and obliterate things with the world's most powerful x-ray laser. It is the cat's pajamas.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Busting sweet dance moves
- Balancing intense skepticism with extreme open-mindedness
- Making truly awful puns, like so bad you wouldn't even believe it
- Accelerating electrons
- Bulleted lists
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile a lot. I don't take myself too seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, Gabriel García Márquez, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Nicholson Baker, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, and Neil Gaiman. I re-read Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, every few years.

As a more general rule, if it features magical realism, I'll probably enjoy it.

The Big Lebowski is my favorite movie but I don't quote it incessantly. I also like Once, V For Vendetta, American Beauty, Secretary, Old Boy, The Princess Bride, Blazing Saddles, and every Miyazaki movie ever. Plus, I acquired a weakness for Schwarzenegger movies from my stepfather.

Firefly, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Community, Arrested Development, Venture Brothers, yadda yadda.

On the musical side, I'm into Arcade Fire, Beach House, Daft Punk, Chromeo, she, Cut Copy, Metric, M83, Electric Six, LCD Soundsystem, The xx, Maps, Stars, Bon Iver, and Caravan Palace. I am powerless to resist the urge to dance when I listen to stuff by Pogo or Madeon. I'm generally a fan of dreamwave and synthpop. The world needs more fresh breaking.

My favorite food in the whole wide world is ramen - proper ramen, not Maruchan or any similarly pale imitation. I've tried making it a few times but getting the broth right is a real pain in the ass.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet, breakfast cereal, the scientific method, my laptop, my Kindle, and my friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much I want a dog. How much I can't have a dog.

Whether I'm being awkward right now. (Probably.)

I spend a lot of time thinking about thought - identifying biases, trying to understand what motivates me and those around me. Can't help it; I was raised by a psychologist. Science is fascinating, but people are the ultimate puzzle.

Also sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Heading up to Tahoe with my buddies for a ski trip. Or maybe at EndGame in Oakland for Friday Night Magic. Or possibly at work. Science never sleeps, and sometimes it feels like we have that in common.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't abide the taste of liquor, so I only drink sorority girl cocktails like fuzzy navels and strawberry daiquiris. Don't hate.

I cry every time at the end of Big Fish, Love Actually, and Toy Story 3.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you think that spending a Thursday evening getting tipsy and rollerblading around the Exploratorium sounds like an pretty excellent date.

You should also message me if you're a hapless member of the Nigerian royal family who really needs a little help with the transfer of vast sums of money but can't find anyone to lend a hand because the modern world has made us all so damn paranoid.
