My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In short, I cannot be stopped.

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 realized I wanted 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.
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 continue exploring the area and meeting new people nonetheless.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Slapping cars that cut me off during a run. It always amuses me how angry drivers get even when they're at fault :-)
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, but I'm trying to read more fiction. I just finished Catch-22, which was excellent, and The Great Gatsby is just underway. Perhaps I'll then attack a few more of the books I didn't appreciate in high school, then move onto the likes of Vonnegut and Asimov.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is my favorite movie, but that may just be because I watched it the first time I truly felt the effects of a "special" brownie. Die Hard is next on the list, but that is almost certainly because the same brownie kicked in halfway through.

To say that Futurama is my favorite show would be a colossal understatement.

I mostly prefer music with no lyrics; there always seems to be more going on. In particular, I like instrumental rock, jazz/fusion, and classical. There are too many artists to list, but recently I've been binging on Tribal Tech.

I'll both try and enjoy just about any food, but on account of the simplicity and the carbs, pasta is number one.
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 how devastating it is that "literally" acquired two completely opposing meanings in the OED. Also, how OkCupid possibly decided to label me "more extroverted"; I'm quite happy as an introvert!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking with fellow acoustics grad students, then drunkenly practicing music. Annoying to neighbors and far less productive than normal practicing, but supremely fun :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a compulsive need to double- or triple-check that doors are locked, burners/faucets/lights are off, etc. This behavior bugs the hell out of me, so I encourage you to mock it relentlessly!
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.
