Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm equal parts sassy and sweet.
I'm pretty tangential and enjoy conversations that go in lots of
directions. I'm an interesting combination of
I'm open minded and exploratory. Intellectual and artistic
curiosity are both really important to me. Feminism and social
justice are important to me. Hopefully, these things are important
to you as well. I'm looking to meet like-minded people who believe
that life is an adventure and that connections with others are some

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making big, ridiculous, community based art projects happen.
Starting a kick ass, family friendly co-op. Basic idea: several
caring and committed adults live in a big house (or triple decker)
and support each other in raising kids. If you're interested in
learning more about this, message me.
Being a big science nerd and wrangling other science nerds. I do
project management for a nonprofit Biotech company that works on
antibody therapeutics. It's a bit nontraditional but I love it
Traveling as much as I can. My most recent adventures have included
Costa Rica, Burning Man, Amish country (for real) and a bunch of
local hikes and road trips.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
falling into bodies of water all over the world.
interpreting experimental design.
coming up with random plans and convincing a bunch of people to go
along with them.
finding really good microbrews (not as good with wine, but would
like to be).
cooking. laughing and making people laugh. laughing at myself.

Whatever's in my head is usually out of my mouth within moments.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

Listen up dudes (the ladies seem not to have this problem): If your
message contains nothing more than a comment about my physical
appearance or something to the effect of you want to bone me, I'm
either going to ignore you or send you a scathing feminist rant

that outcome? Then don't send that kind of nonsense to my inbox.
