My self-summary
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 come.

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 and 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 while learning about nano fabrication techniques. I'm also attempting to ace prerequisites for graduate school so I have the option to work on a master's degree in mechanical 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 under 40 minutes in the B.A.A. 10K on June 21st.
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.
I don't really read much. When I do, I read articles about nonfictional stuff and ideas/theories. 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. My all-time favorite book, though, is Gaiome: Notes on Ecology, Space Travel and Becoming Cosmic Species, written by Kevin Scott Polk.

Movies are a great treat for me since I rarely watch them. I tend to watch documentaries and action/sci-fi movies. Superheroes are awesome. Unless it's a horror movie, I enjoy the other genres too.

I don't really watch TV that much, but in the past, I have watched shows documenting real people with struggles/issues like in Dr. Phil or To Catch A Predator.

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:

Andy McKee
Aphex Twin
Ian Ethan Case
Jon Gomm
Secede
Sundial Aeon
Thomas Leeb

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 herbal tea and their varieties. Caffeine is hardly of any use to me.
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.
3. Exercise.
4. My job.
5. Goals.
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 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.
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 Cambridge.
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!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You want to get in shape for a running event, but need pointers.
- You want to eat healthier by spending time around another health-conscious individual.
- You want to pick my brain like a psychologist does.
- You are a musician. I might play something with you.
- You want to geek out over the advancement of the human race.
- You want to laugh with me at all of the people lined up at the ice cream stands (ok fine, a little frozen yogurt now and then is good. What do the elderly say? Everything in moderation? It better be TRUE moderation...)
- You think I can be "greener" with my lifestyle.
- You like the idea of making love with rhythmless ambient music in the background.
