My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After studying physics and music at Michigan, I moved to California in an ill-conceived attempt to start a company. Upon realizing I needed to get a real job, I tutored kids part-time and joined a Mongolian rock band instead. With much free time to evaluate life, I decided to return to school, so I got another job in downtown San Francisco to support myself during the application process and then moved to Austin for grad school.

I've played guitar and piano for nine years each, and I've run long distance for over a decade. I enjoy activities 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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in my second year studying mechanical engineering with a focus in acoustics, and I plan to stick around for a PhD. I've heard that thesis-writing will eat my life in the near future, but I'm determined to carve out enough time to explore the area and meet new people nonetheless.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Jaywalking. During a run, almost nothing is more annoying than waiting at lights, so I just don't :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. In the top half percent, it's hard to miss.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I usually find myself browsing reference texts of various sorts, but I'm trying to read more fiction. I just finished Catch-22, which was excellent, and The Great Gatsby is next on my list. Perhaps I'll then attack a few more books I didn't appreciate in high school, followed by the exceedingly difficult Gravity's Rainbow and Infinite Jest.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is my favorite movie, 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 the same high.

To say that Futurama is my favorite show would be a colossal understatement. I also like Sherlock, The Wire, Louie, and shows with Malcolm Reynolds, Walter White, Leslie Knope, or Sterling Malory Archer.

Almost every type of music has some feature I can enjoy. Naturally, I find certain genres more compelling (instrumental rock, jazz/fusion, classical), but there are too many worthy artists in each to even begin listing them.

I'll try, and probably enjoy, just about any food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Running shorts
- Linguistic oddities
- The hours immediately after midnight
- Impersonating voices and sounds
- Melodies emanating from my mind
- People who accept my ridiculosity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The blueprints for my mind palace, and words that are not but should be. For instance, if a person is an "author", this person must "auth".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up on music practice for which I couldn't find time the previous week, or at some sort of drinking function with fellow grad students :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I'm driving by myself, I can get extremely angry. If I have a passenger, I tightly control this, choosing instead to point and laugh at absurdities on the road. However, all bets are off when I'm alone.

I dislike this about myself, so I'm trying to eliminate this trait.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- 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.

Also worth mentioning: I'm not intimidated when a woman sends the first message. In fact, I prefer this. As with many other gender norms, this one needs to fade into oblivion.
