My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in the Midwest and lived there long enough to pick up some manners. A few years down South taught me to cook a proper breakfast (eggs, biscuits & gravy, and sweet potato home fries). Now, I've been in New England long enough to know how the CharlieCard got its name, though not long enough to have deviated much from the Midwestern stereotype (possibly to your benefit: -- #5 is particularly true).

Borderline [E/I]NTJ if that's your thing...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Look at your phone. If it says 4G or LTE, you're holding a few chips that I worked on before escaping from industry. Now I'm chasing bigger problems with really tiny things (enabling the Smart Grid and 5G/6G wireless, among other things) in research playland. I also dabble (and publish) in regenerative medicine for funsies in spite of not being a biologist. When I'm not trying to save the world or get the next YouTube phenomenon to your phone that much faster (let's be honest, is there really that much difference?), I can generally be found sauntering through the streets of Cambridge with a cup of coffee, in some kind of boat on the Charles (oars or sails), or running along its banks.

I also spend some of my time at a small farm-to-bottle craft distillery that I started with a few friends...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being as fun as the orangutans (according to my nieces and nephews).

Finding my way around countries where no one speaks English.

It seems I also make a decent mobile handrail for elderly women who trip in the T stations...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm laughing, wearing a mischievous smirk, or holding a cup of coffee. Gallup hasn't yet reported the official poll results, but the "Middle America je ne sais quoi" is apparently hard to miss...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Kindle combined with Project Gutenberg has led to a steady diet of about one book per week...

Once upon a time, I was a jazz drummer. A drum set doesn't particularly lend itself to moving, so now I have a violin...and plenty of room for improvement. As far as listening is concerned, I favor jazz (primarily big-band style), classical, bluegrass, and 50's through 80's rock and roll.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- technical problems to solve
- crayon letters from the nieces and nephews
- breezy summer afternoons spent in the shade of a maple with a volume of Loeb (green or red)
- swim goggles
- running shoes
- my bicycles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Scratch the word "about." Sorted.

Also, mathematical beauty in nature... Like this:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
a) on a [train/plane/bus/car]
b) dancing (generally Salsa or Swing)
c) hanging around the art world in NYC (apparently this is often enough that Big Data thinks I live there...)
d) writing research proposals
e) laundering (clothes, not money)
f) prepping for a backpacking trip
g) ???
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The people at the blood donation center recognize me when I walk in to donate...

My most successful use of this site yielded a journal article that was cited 8 times in a single month... OkScience?

"Why not?" is my favorite phrase. What follows is almost guaranteed to become an excellent story... Like the time I took a solo day trip to Paris on a whim and toured the Louvre thanks to an unmarked and rather conveniently unlocked side door... I also use this phrase when colleagues ask: "Can you do this?" That this has resulted in only two building evacuations is no small miracle...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're passionate about life and you can laugh at yourself...or at least at me. Bonus points if you enjoy team cooking. Also, you've come to terms with the fact that I will almost certainly take you dancing...


You read my profile and thought "This guy seems interesting, but I don't know if we'd hit it off romantically..." I'm always open to expanding my social circle to include interesting, happy people.
