My self-summary
Self-professed geek seeks same: I have more NPR podcasts than music on my phone. My favorite animals are cephalopods- I've been known to go to the aquarium just to hang out with the cuttlefish. I get way too exited about 8-bit pixel art. This all doesn't mean I'm the kind of nerd that's going to spend hours obsessing about the cast of Doctor Who, but it does mean that I'm the kind who'd love to hear about that obscure author you're obsessed with or that crazy article you read.

I'm the kind of person who's happiest having a friendly debate. Sometimes I even like being offended. You should have strong opinions, even if it leads to occasionally butting heads. I'm looking for someone to keep me honest and on my toes.
What I’m doing with my life
Grad school in biotech, so some day I'll grow up to be a scientist. I tried being a productive member of society instead for a while, but it was too tempting to go back to school and pretend I'm not an adult for a few more years.
I’m really good at
Making popcorn. Forget that microwaved over-buttered junk, popcorn is an art.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite authors at the moment are China Miéville and Peter Watts (how can you not love a novel with citations?). Just finished Roadside Picnic by the brothers Strugatsky as part of an ongoing project to read more foundational sci fi (The Foundation series was too dry for me though. Weird). Discovering Alfred Bester has been the highlight so far. I also thoroughly enjoyed John Hodgman's books of fake trivia.

Favorite TV shows: the Venture Bros, Game of Thrones, Archer, the Daily Show, and Top Gear even though I'm not actually interested in cars.

As far as music goes: The Decemberists, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, whatever Pandora insists I should like which is usually something Shins-adjacent but not actually the Shins. I've mostly been listening to a lot of ambient music at work, like Sigur Ros, Grails, and Glorie, so if you have some suggestions like that I'd love to hear them.
The six things I could never do without
Parenthetical statements, a wide assortment of podcasts, and a good coffee stout.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"My two favorite things are commitment and changing myself."

You should message me if
You need someone to mock terrible movies with. You enjoy dark beers, or know how to brew a Flemish sour. You're good enough at geography to save my pub trivia team. You would have been one of the two people who got it when I dressed as Tom Servo for Halloween. You like starting conversations in the middle- I'll play along.
