My self-summary
I think I would've fit right in during the late 1800's. I like freedom from technology, simplicity in life.... and I think I would've been a damn good blacksmith.

I'll try my best to compress my life into a few words.

I am employed as a chemical process engineer and I enjoy fixing anything. I build, I brew, I bake, and I bike.

Hell, I enjoy doing everything.

I spent time working to be a tattoo artist for a bit (a few months.... didn't like the fact that I'd be stamping people with silly flash art and drawing "mom hearts"). I still draw when I get something nice stuck in my head.

Then I wanted to be a classical musician. But music is therapy to me, not a performance (I'm a lil' crowd shy). I've been playing guitar for about 12 years. Sometimes it's just random scales as I lay my head down on the guitar. Sometimes its a nice song that I then forget the next day.

And then... I became a chef, specializing in om-nom-ery. 6 years. There is a big difference between those who like to cook and those who like to cook in a restaurant. It's an 8-12 hour adrenaline rush.

But in the end, I became a scientist because... well science is just fucking awesome. When you're a scientist you get to say cool things like "be careful of the anionic shielding effect," "there is a high probability of quantum-tunnelled alpha decay," and "you shouldn't have consumed that much polycyclic phosphorescent intercalating agent."

I just graduated from CU with a triple major in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Ecology/Evolutionary Biology (i.e. I'm a total dork). It sounds crazier than it is. It is strange not having mounds of dense school work to muster through.

On another note, I'm big into rock climbing and mountaineering. There are so many mountains to climb and a lot of them are quite mentally and physically demanding.
What I’m doing with my life
That's an intense question! I guess I plan on going to graduate school for Environmental Engineering or Bioremediation. I will be submitting my applications to some good ol' Canadian Universities soon. I have a few interesting ideas that I'd like to work on, and I think grad school would be an excellent place to develop them, eh.

On the non-academic side, I'm just trying to explore the local/distant mountains more. I'd like to climb Denali or Aconcagua, so I'm trying to get myself into a good condition. I just bought a new avalanche beacon & avi probe that I hope I never have to use :)

Also, I'm often working on new tattoo ideas.
I’m really good at
- Turning fridge scraps into a great meal
- Creating fun jams on the guitar and silly songs
- Being punctual and following up on my word
- Building snow forts/caves
The first things people usually notice about me
These silly glasses and ear gear.

The six things I could never do without
I think I could live without a lot of things.

Things I enjoy living with:

-A good cast iron pan for cooking everything in.

-Seasonal Microbrews

-Good climbing partners

-A textbook on anything scientific.

-My guitar. Actually, I should put that one on the things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Really, really, really nerdy things.
On a typical Friday night I am
-climbing at ze gyms.
-drinking a smidgeon of whiskey and working on some funky blues.
-dancing my ass off at Catacombs.
-playing Cards Against Humanity

Mostly playing music though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my attempts to start a pants-off-dance-off at a party didn't work (only my good gal-pal joined for one song). I kept dancing in my underwear all night out of commitment.
