I grew up in the Smoky Mountains. Then, I went to college and worked in biotech in Virginia for a few years before I making my way over to the University of Illinois for PhD school (as I call it).
Now I work in a papaya lab in East Central Illinois (there's always data in the papaya lab). I have a pretty sweet gig in Champaign. It's true I do work a lot, but I always have time for friends, long weekends, exercising and palling around with friends.
I love getting outdoors, seeing a fine new film, trying food I've never had, and road trips.
I'm think I'm a little slow to warm up to people, but I'm a relaxed, low maintenance, and hard to stress out.
If you are 'into' a Mr. Darcy type with a Michael Scott streak, I may just be your man.
They say I'm not dull
