My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work hard and play hard. Cliche, maybe - but I'm trying to get as much living in while I can! I think it's important to strike a balance between pursuing my professional ambitions and remembering to enjoy the journey along the way. I am fortunate that I've been able to work on issues I care about, and that I ultimately will be able to contribute to in a way that makes the world a better place.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently finished a PhD program and have just moved to town to catch up with some old friends. I'm still deciding what my next move will be (and doing some independent consulting in the meantime), but I'm going to make sure I have a good time while I figure it out!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I recently received an unsolicited text from an old friend who said that I'm "loyal, forgiving, humble, honest, and always a good time." I think he may have been a little tipsy when he wrote that, but it's still a nice thing to have said -- I'd like to think he's right!

I'm also good at using Oxford commas and it seems that my texting friends are too. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my inquisitiveness. I love to learn and am always trying to challenge what I know about how the world works. I ask a lot of questions, and while I can have strong opinions on certain subjects I try to keep and open mind. As Keynes said: "When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, and almost exclusively non-fiction - I just can't seem to suspend my disbelief for long enough to come to care about made up characters. Some of my favorites sound impossibly dry (a good example of this is "Bureaucracy" by James Q Wilson) but what they all have in common is that they explain their small slice of the world, and why it works in the way that does. Some that are at the top of my list are "Guns, Germs, and Steel" by Jared Diamond, "The Prize" by Dan Yergin, "Essence of Decision" by Graham Allison, and "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene. I just finished reading "The Science of Love and Betrayal" by Robin Dunbar which seems particularly appropriate for listing here (though it gives a somewhat depressingly utilitarian take on why relationships are the way they are).

Among my favorites shows are Archer, Family Guy, and 30 Rock; so that might tell you something about my sense of humor right off the bat. I'm not a big TV watcher overall - and I can't stand dramatic shows that leave you hanging till the following week to know what happens next. I do like Netflix though (and the ability to find out right away!) and really liked House of Cards and Luther.

I have fickle music tastes - mostly I listen to what is probably best described as "terrible rap". At the moment it's "The Best of Big Pun" via Spotify...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The Internet
2) My friends and family
3) Caffeine. Sad, but true - I love the stuff.
4) Amazon Prime and the free shipping; I go through a lot of books
5) Water - I drink an unusual amount of water
6) Access to e-journals through a university library. Über-nerdy for sure, but I love keeping up on the latest research.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully it never becomes typical! Sometimes I'm just exhausted from the week and ready to tuck-in early. Other times I'm gearing up to spend time with friends or heading off for a weekend somewhere.
