My self-summary
Whenever I read a profile that professes a love for "adventure" and "staying active", I feel like I am browsing the most depressing retirement home brochure.
What I’m doing with my life
I mostly studied environmental political economics as an undergrad. Partially out of cowardice, I gave up the path of the academic and decided to pursue the occult practice of environmental law. Now I'm a paralegal saving up for law school. It's not as bad as it sounds, really. (Update: finished LSATs, working on applications)

In my free time I like to cook, woodwork, and do maintenance on my indoor/outdoor aquaponic vegetable garden. The heirloom tomatoes are in - if you get to know me soon enough, you might be able to nab one before Autumn. (Update: all of the kale and tomatoes were killed by aphids, but they were good while they lasted. Still some herbs and peppers.)
I’m really good at
Cooking, backpacking, reading, programming, writing, freshwater planted aquarium keeping, carving avocado pits into faces, day drinking with friends, and learning new things.

I'm also pretty good at coming up with insufferable puns.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm pretty well traveled, but I haven't been abroad in a while. I would really like to do some eco-tourism sometime soon, maybe Indo-China, South America, or Mongolia.

I like to exchange academic, news, and magazine articles with friends. Please feel free to send me something that you have enjoyed reading recently.

One of the founders of OKC runs a really fantastic blog on user data. If you're into statistics or anthropology, you should check it out.

This New York Magazine article written by the same guy is also a really fun read.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either cooking and drinking with friends, or drinking with friends.
You should message me if
- Your life is busy enough to be interesting but free enough to hang out some time.

- You have podcasts to recommend. I keep running out.

First messages are tough. If you need an ice breaker, just send me a list of your 5 favorite vegetables.

Like my profile but interested in something more... vagina? Check out my friend Grace! .
Don't worry, this isn't like a couples threesome profile or anything. She's just a good friend!
