Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Keith. I am in Blacksburg pursuing a PhD. Trees are my
passion and my work. Not many people can say their passion is their
I've lived in Texas and Indiana for work, but am originally from
Wisconsin. My heart is definitely in the Midwest, but I want to
live out west or maybe overseas for a while once I graduate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on a PhD at VT. I was just in Austin for almost four years.
I am really happy to be in a small college town and in the
mountains. So far, I've really been enjoying being so close to the
National Forest and the mountains - all the opportunities for being
out in nature which was definitely missing from my life in
I workout five days a week, first thing in the morning. Enjoying
yoga as a beginner. Also enjoy hiking, camping, hunting, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making assumptions which turn out to be true based on little
evidence. I could be a police detective.
Making people laugh. Whether in a polite setting or not
Trees. Identifying what species they are. Caring for them.
Especially caring for young trees so they turn into 100 year olds
or more someday. Knowing which ones are dangerous and need to be
removed before they fall. Lots about trees
Cooking. Home cooked meals like your grandmother makes. Master
griller. Also working on cooking vegetarian meals.

They often notice I am pretty intense which can be intimidating,
but I am also funny and cheerful. I'm actually mellowing out as I
get older which is weird to say. I am very confident in myself.

John Steinbeck is my favorite fiction author. Have never read any
of his non-fiction. JD Salinger is also great. Kurt Vonnegut.
Mad Max. Aliens. Terminator. Star Wars duh. Dances with Wolves.
Last of the Mohicans. Anchorman. Office Space.
Love shows like The Wire and the Sopranos. The Office. Parks and
Neil Young is my favorite artist. I love a whole bunch of classic
rock like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. I also listen to a lot of
modern rock like Dead Meadow, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age,
Electric Wizard and Truckfighters. Also some Radiohead.
My last meal would be a bacon cheeseburger with jalapeños. But I
can cook and love trying almost anything. I am trying to have more
and more vegan or vegetarian meals which is an interesting
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and Family
My dog Birdy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Are you kidding? As an INTJ I live in my own mind. That's where I
spend my time. If I really filled this out OKCupid would melt
Trees. Space and time (Carl Sagan is a big influence). The present
and the future. Moral and ethical dilemmas. Spirituality. I am
looking for someone who likes to talk about big/deep topics once in
a while (not all the time).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a couple of beers with friends. Happy hour for Forestry grad
students. Or staying in.

I lived with an ex-girlfriend for almost seven years. People grow
and change a lot between 19 and 26 years old. We parted as friends.
