I love what I do. I'm a PhD student who studies the evolutionary biology and biogeography of African songbirds. I work a lot right now, maybe too hard, but would be willing to make time for someone interesting.
I love to travel. I'm actually typing this message while swinging in a hammock near the beach in Lima, Peru. I'm relaxing after two weeks in the Amazon and a week in the Andes. I'm a clean shaven type of guy, so if i look unshaven they're probably travel photos. It would be fantastic to have someone special to see the world with.
I love my cat. Seriously, she's like my furry little daughter.
I love food. Especially ethnic food with an emphasis on things I've never tried.
I will try anything once. Even if I'm a little nervous to try. Life is too short for regrets.
I birdwatch. If you don't know what that is or ask me how I keep score we probably won't get along. I bird practically everywhere I go, so if you ask me to go on a walk you may only get 80% of my attention. I will sometimes randomly throw on the brakes to see what's soaring over the highway. I have a top ten list of birds on various continents I'm trying to complete, so if you're interested in all that, we may have something to talk about.
Randomly: I love Bob Ross, Cadbury Cream Eggs, swimming in rivers, introducing myself to locals, baseball, learning, Coca-Cola, beaches, churros, making people laugh, buying gifts for people who aren't expecting it, that just showered feeling after running, a recipe that comes out better than I possibly hoped and that moment when the plane lands and I can relax.
