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 absurd 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 spent some time at home in Virginia before moving to Austin for grad school.

I've been classed as an INTJ. Take that as you will, but I now view the MBTI with skepticism. One of my Austin friends characterized it best: "a horoscope for smart people".

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.

TL;DR for the rest my profile: 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'm looking to explore the area and meet new people along the way!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Properly pronouncing the Spanish street names in Austin. It seems that many Texans have forgotten how close we are to Mexico :-)
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'm partway through Catch-22, and though they will be considerably more difficult, Gravity's Rainbow and Infinite Jest are high on my list. I'll also probably try to tackle all the books I didn't appreciate in high school at some point :-)

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.

*wistfully* Ah, California...

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, Sterling Malory Archer, or Daenerys Targaryen.

Almost every type of music has something I can study and 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.

As for food, I'll try just about anything.
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 whether my liberal use of ad-blockers spells the death of the internet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at some sort of drinking function with fellow grad students or catching up on music practice for which I couldn't find time the previous week. Recently it's been more of the former than the latter :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an embarrassingly big fan of karaoke. Singing along to songs by female vocalists is especially entertaining!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You are considering clicking "Like". (I don't have A-List.)
- 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. Like many other gender norms, including women changing their names in marriage, this one needs to fade into oblivion.
