I grew up on the border and have found myself in "in between" situations all my life. I enjoy juxtaposition; the clash of cultures, people, ideas. I lived in Maine for my undergraduate career and learned so much while I was there about other people and myself. I decided to come back to Texas after graduating to get a PhD. Maybe because I didn't know better, but mostly because I love to learn.
I have a wide range of interests from baking and film to bacteria and genetics. I love learning new things and being surprised by old things.
I was recently asked who my ideal man would be, my response was Alton Brown. He has gotten better looking with age, wears amazing clothes, cooks, is funny, and loves to learn. If you've got all that going for you, I'm there.
I guess what I want you to come away with from reading this is that I have a big heart, I'm cute and I really like beards. I can be deadly serious then burst out laughing in the same sentence.
I am a little ridiculous in a good way, charmingly awkward, and multicellular.
