My self-summary
After studying physics and music at Michigan, I moved to California in a wild attempt to start a company. Upon realizing I needed to get an actual job, I tutored kids part-time and joined a Mongolian rock band instead. With much time to evaluate life, I realized I wanted to go back to school, so I got another job in downtown San Francisco to support myself during the application process, then spent some time at home in Virginia last summer before moving to Austin for grad school at UT.

I've been playing guitar and piano for eight years and running long distance for a decade. I enjoy active hobbies that challenge me physically and intellectually, and I love pushing myself further than I thought possible.

In short, I cannot be stopped.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently studying acoustics, and I plan to stick around for a Ph.D. Given my undergraduate background, I'm not sure how it took me so long to choose this path, but there it is.

In the shorter term, my summer will be mostly research, which has very flexible hours, so I'm looking to explore the area and meet new people.
I’m really good at
Over-enunciating. It's quite fun. Just try pronouncing all four syllables in "comfortable", or putting three syllables in "nation".
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. In the top half percent, it's hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I recently read A Brief History of Time, but I usually find myself browsing reference texts like The Feynman Lectures. I'm trying to read more fiction though; I just started Catch-22, and Gravity's Rainbow is high on my list. Additional suggestions welcome!

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is my favorite movie of all time, but that may just be because I watched it while high. A close second would be Die Hard, because I started watching it immediately before that same high. Ah, California...

(Yes, you correctly read "Never" for "Drugs" in my details. That was the option agreeing most closely with "Extremely Rarely"; I only ever tried the ganja a couple times while in California.)

To say that Futurama is my favorite show would be a colossal understatement. I also enjoy Sherlock, The Wire, and shows with Malcolm Reynolds, Walter White, Sterling Malory Archer, Daenerys Targaryen, or Zapp Brannigan.

Almost every type of music has some characteristic I can study and enjoy. Naturally, I find certain genres more compelling (e.g. instrumental rock, jazz/fusion, classical), each of which has too many worthy artists to even begin listing them.

As for food, I'll both try and enjoy just about anything.
The six things I could never do without
- Running shorts
- Linguistic oddities
- The hours immediately after midnight
- Impersonating voices and sounds
- Melodies emanating from my mind
- People who accept my ridiculosity (i.e., friends and family)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The blueprints for my "mind palace".
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at some sort of drinking function with fellow grad students (e.g. happy hour) or catching up on guitar/piano practice that I couldn't find time for the previous week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an embarrassingly big fan of karaoke. Singing along to songs by female vocalists is especially entertaining.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–29
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
- You have lofty goals for your future.
- You love being active.
- You are musically or scientifically inclined.
- You enjoy (pseudo)intellectual debates/musings.
- You, too, cannot be stopped.

Even if none of these apply, I'd still love to hear from you. Especially if you're tall :-)
