My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty mellow, quiet grad student studying chemical engineering. I've lived in Philly for the last several years but am also originally from the area. I'm a scientist by training but also have a creative streak. Fantasy and sci-fi are my go-to genres for literature, movies, and video games; this would make some people label me a nerd which is probably accurate.

Some other possibly interesting factoids .... I enjoy skiing but am not so good at it; I spend more time lying on the ground figuring out how to escape the snow drift I just crashed into than actually skiing. Running (in nice weather) and lifting are common pastimes; I'd love to be able to squat over 225 lbs but am scared to death of destroying my back and knees. I take my coffee black.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently finishing up graduate school in Philadelphia. This involves science, research, and recently a lot of caffeine fueled writing. It also involves a decent amount of programming, which it turns out I really enjoy doing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Making pretzels
- Being a good listener
- Troubleshooting computers
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Broad shoulders, thunder calves.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books
- Harry Potter - these are just awesome stories highlighting how interesting life could be if we were not mere muggles
- NYT columns (as time permits)

I haven't had much time for pleasure reading lately; I would do so if I did have the time.

Movies
- Back to the Future (all three but the first one is the best of the bunch)
- Terminator 2: Judgement Day
- The Prestige - the nuances and twists in this tale of bitter rivalry between two magicians are really great

TV shows
- Frasier - I like this show for its writing and characters. I wish I was as cultured and witty as Frasier (but certainly not as pompous).
- Lot's of sci-fi series, especially Star Trek (all of 'em) or Stargate SG-1.
- LOST - This is one of the few shows I have ever binged on having first started watching during ~season 3. Riveting plot(s) and great character development.

Music
- I'm a big fan of Billy Joel and all his various styles.
- When feeling a bit sad or needing to calm down a bit, Over the Rainbow/It's a Wonderful World is just great.
- Recently some of Sara Bareilles's work has been particularly inspiring.
- I'm also a big sucker for many film soundtracks and broadway musical scores.

Food
- I love sushi; I want to make more money so I can eat it more often.
- All styles of pasta - pesto tortellini is particularly scrumptious.
- Major sweet tooth - I can never resist desserts (chocolate ones in particular) when eating at a nice restaurant.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet
Warm flannel sheets fresh out of the dryer in the cold of winter
Yards Love Stout
Family and friends
Sense of curiosity
Spaghetti (for nights when cooking is just not happening)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Brainstorming ideas to craft the next blockbuster indie video game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Perhaps a hot shower, followed by unwinding with friends by playing cards or boardgames and sipping a lovely stout. Sometimes these will turn into drinking games in which case "sipping" and "stout" are not good descriptors.
I also love going out and eating massive quantities of sushi, though that is not quite a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have nearly zero manual dexterity and routinely spill beverages all over myself even when totally sober.
You should message me if
