Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there! Even though I'm originally from the midwest, I still
haven't gotten used to the cold weather in Madison--luckily we have
Climate Change to fix that. I like to laugh, hike, travel, try out
new recipes, and watch horrible movies on Netflix. I am prone to
making sarcastic and inappropriate comments.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a PhD student at UW studying plant evolution. Biodiversity is a
constant source of amazement to me! Conducting fieldwork is also a
really fun part of my job, especially when you are working along
roadsides and attract unwanted attention from locals (no guns
pointed in my face as of yet...). Interesting fieldwork adventures
include (but are not limited to) being stalked by deer, crazy
people following and berating me with ridiculous questions, and
white trash wrestling in the middle of trails.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh.
Cooking (given a lack of uncontrollable fires).
Tripping over myself and recovering like a boss.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Now that I have shorter hair and got rid of my mutton chops (I had
them for a few weeks 3 years ago and even then only for comedic
purposes) it's hard to say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I really wish I had more time to read but now my time has
been replaced by journal articles and lab work. When I have time to
read my preference has been Victorian English and postwar American
novelists. And obviously On the Origin of Species (though it's a
bit dry and outdated in places).
Movies/TV Shows: Monty Python, Futurama, South Park, Archer.
Despite the large amount of shitty shows/movies available on
Netflix, I'm obsessed with it -- it must be electronic crack.
Music: It's a long list but mostly blues-influenced stuff. A
summary of the breadth is captured in these artists: Led Zeppelin,
Rush, Black Sabbath, The Clash, Iron Maiden, The Doors,
Food: I eat anything but I'm obsessed with Indian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The night sky
My computer (unfortunately)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe and how amazing it is, especially in size and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to do something interesting at lest once a week, usually on
Saturdays. I need to get away from my crazy neighbors! An ideal
Friday or Saturday night would involve having a nice dinner out and
then going home to watch a good movie or play a board/card game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I accidentally flipped off my Master's advisor thinking he was one
of my lab mates.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone who also has a good sense of humor and
isn't sensitive about inappropriate jokes. I've found that a
strange sense of humor is an awesome gift! I'm pretty open to doing
anything as long as there's not too much of a loud crowd to stifle
