Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a science and technology geek turned athlete who likes to do
some things the old-fashioned way. For example, not using GPS
navigation. Fiercely independent and ambitious. I aspire to make a
positive impact on the world as an engineer and problem solver and
inspire people through my work and hobbies. I view life and human
society as a constant evolution and it's fun imagining how humans
and life as we know it will change and adapt in the years to
I like people who are stingy with their money, but like making
long-term, worthwhile investments. I like puns, slap-on-the-knee
jokes, welcoming, inclusive people, and being affectionate towards
animals. If I get close to you, chances are you will probably be
treated in a playful manner.
I'm a big fan of the olympics and running events. Not so much into
ball sports, but I respect all athletes and Superbowl Sunday is
always a fun tradition.
Ultimately, I'm looking to develop a more emotional and intimate
connection with someone who I respect and can enrich the life of
just by being myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I work as a customer solutions associate, managing
logistics and commercial operations at a research and development
company in Cambridge. I'm also attempting to ace prerequisites for
graduate school so I can eventually work on a master's degree in
mechanical/aerospace engineering. If anything, I'm simply trying to
prove to myself that I can master engineering fundamentals I once
thought were impossible.
I also run long distances and exercise whenever I can make the
time. My current goal is to run a 5k in 18 minutes by the end of
the summer. I seek not only to push boundaries in the technology
sector, but also to push my own physical capabilities.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Running without tiring, introspecting, messing around with my
guitars, seeding pomegranates, and talking about interesting stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Just about every book I read is some kind of non-fictional, how-to,
or science-related book. I've been reading books (more so his blog)
by Cal Newport on how people and students have constructed
meaningful careers and stood out amongst a crowd. But my all-time
favorite is a book called Gaiome: Notes on Ecology, Space Travel
and Becoming Cosmic Species. Other than that, most of my reading
now is in academic textbooks.
Movies are a great treat for me since I rarely watch them. I tend
to watch documentaries, Sci-Fi and action movies (I want to see
movies where the moves people do and the physics are a little more
believable, though). Unless it's a horror movie, I enjoy the other
I don't really watch TV that much, but I have been watching some
Dr. Phil lately.
I'm particularly drawn to instrumental music and anything that is
energetic and upbeat. I bounce back and forth between electronic
music (Trance, funky house, downtempo/ambient/chill) and purely
acoustic music. Also regularly listen to WAAF, WZLX, and Rock 101.1
FM, I usually turn the volume up for AC/DC, Def Leppard, Ozzy
Osbourne, Van Halen, and ZZ Top. Some other artists I've been
listening a lot to recently:
Ian Ethan Case
I'm a flexitarian. That means I am mostly vegan, but occasionally
eat meat and diary. I'm very health conscious and would rather eat
a salad over a bowl of ice cream or cake any day. Suffering from
heart disease or other chronic illnesses in the future is of no
interest to me. If you are a strict vegan, I probably could easily
make the push to go 100% as well. I enjoy bean dishes, stir-fries,
beets, apples, mango, and peanut butter. I can't stand the taste of
coffee, but I enjoy tea and their varieties.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Trader Joe's.
2. My water bottle.
4. My job.
6. Dental Floss
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- How technological innovations and social behavior will impact
societies over the long-term.
- What hasn't been discovered about hydrodynamics of
- What if I was given a superpower that let me run super fast and I
ran and broke the Boston Marathon course record by chip time
because I began in the 2nd starting wave and not the 1st? That way,
the 1st place finisher would have no idea that I actually won until
after the event was over and thus the crown was given to him by
accident. I would attract more skepticism than admiration!
- Races I should train for.
- How inefficient it is that a rocket uses a third of its fuel just
to reach 1000 mph and why ground assisted/catapult launches have
not been employed yet. Also, is a vertical landing at the launch
site worth it, or should a spacecraft simply glide down on a runway
like the retired NASA space shuttle?
- Songs from my favorite musicians to play on guitar.
- Long foreplay sessions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chilling out at home in Concord, MA or finishing up work in
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once salvaged some intact apples from a dumpster which I then put
into a pie and ate with my family on a holiday. It was the best pie
ever and I got compliments too!
