Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm in my early thirties now and I've been a student my entire
life. I'm ok at it. I got a master's degree in continental
philosophy and moved to NYC in 2006 to get a PhD, but dropped out
and decided to become a scientist instead. Now I'm almost done with
a PhD in biochemistry and I teach and do research in biophysics at
Also I'm much less normal and successful than that paragraph makes
me sound (in case you got either of those impressions from that
paragraph). So a couple disclaimers:
1) I'm in a terminal relationship with my own emptiness but
occasionally I cheat on myself with others. I'm not interested in
any body that performs itself in terms of traditional categories,
but I am interested in bodies, both free and under the influence of
external forces (that's a physics joke but the point is just don't
be too straight plz).
2) I'm kind of obsessed with my research. If you don't wanna hear
about how electrons move around in living things or think about the
physical and chemical explanations for why life emerged and
evolves, you'll probably enjoy my company only part of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to understand how "matter in the living state" got so weird
and differentiated. Also making proteins into transistors and
diodes. Basically waging war on the false distinction between
natural and synthetic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Statistical thermodynamics, the bankhead bounce, kemo walk, and
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Don't know...don't care...why aren't you paying attention to this
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I like sprawling, high modern, "death of europe" novels from
between the wars like the man without qualities and the
sleepwalkers. Faulkner and Melville are my favorite American
authors. I don't like anything pedantic or with a narrative agenda
unless its about quantum mechanics. Also I should mention Kundera
and Battaile if I'm gonna keep it real w yall.
If anyone has read or is familiar with the work of Ilya Prigogine
or knows anything about non-equilibrium thermodynamics and
statistical mechanics, plz contact me we can really geek out!
For movies I enjoy things with lots of working class empathy and
ceremonial orgies. Pasolini, Fellini, Derek Jarman. Also I might
pass on the Truffaut but I'll watch all that still-as-death Russian
shit specially if u got pilllzzzzz.
I like modern dance and opera, and also shit that's clearly
intended for 13 year old boys; wizards still dazzle me enough that
I'll take the hike up that traditional plot arc even though I'm old
enough to know better.
I grew up in Atlanta. I prefer it ignant and colossal. Recently I
have wanted to be thuggerthugger's hubbyhubby since foreverever.
Migos and sicko mobb are still in the rotation. Classics are like
Juvenile and Mariah Carey. I can be weird too though so I'll listen
to Can and Eno with u specially if u got...
food: THE RICH!!!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
world I need you, won't be without you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
being interesting as fuck somewhere.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
U wanna get deep...scientists, philosophers, stoners, libertines,
queers, errbody except squares basically.
Also, I don't *require* that you have radical politics but if you
have a limited imagination with regard to the social possibilities
of human beings then you probably haven't thought through the fact
that we're animals to a sufficient level of awareness such that
we're gon make sparxx anyway.
