My self-summary
I'm a transplant from the west coast. I came here six years ago from the Oregon to attend school. I've grown to really appreciate and know Atlanta since then.

I think its hard to be objective about self descriptions. If you put stock into MBTI, I'm a solid INTJ. Maybe the easiest way to share a little about myself is to provide a snapshot of some of my recent interests.

Over the last year I have become an avid climber. Our local rock gym, Stone Summit, is phenomenal. If my evening is free it's likely i'll choose to spend it there working new bouldering problems.

Lately, I've started an informal meditation practice. It's a great counter balance to my work in the lab. The idea that you can change your brain to be more effective is appealing. There is a good bit of peer reviewed research that bears out its efficacy, which is always a plus.

All things being equal, I like people with complexity, drive and compassion. I'd like to connect with people who have strong interests that they like to share.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a PhD student at Georgia Tech. I spend my days working in a research lab that studies swarm theory. I'm not sure where my degree will ultimately take me. Though, someday I hope that my work finds its way into meaningful applications that will help people in their daily lives.
I’m really good at
Relating to and understanding both sides of an issue, pushing myself to physical and mental limits, appreciating the little details about people that make them unique, and learning new things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height. I'm not super tall (6'1"), maybe just enough that people comment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read almost exclusively science fiction and science fact. Some recent favorites: Ready Player One, Old Mans War, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash.

Shows: Dexter, House, Castle, Caprica, Firefly, 30 Rock, Battlestar Galactica, Grey's Anatomy, Farscape, The Big Bang Theory...

Wow these are still favorites, but I don't think almost all of these shows are no longer producing new episodes. I'm a cord cutter, so I don't watch much TV anymore.

Music: Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prodigy, Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, The Cardigans, Tom Petty, Pendulum, ES Posthumus, Juno Reactor, Ashton Shepherd, Kid Cudi.

Food: Cuban Sandwiches, Burritos at Chipoltle, Sushi, A Good Cheeseburger, Avocados in any form, Curry (Thai or Indian), Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Swirl, Calamari, Baby Spinach, Chili Spiced Mangoes, Taco Bell, Green Tea, Roast Beef.
The six things I could never do without
Close Friends, Challenging Work Outs, Non-verbal Communication, Word Play, Inspiration, Gadgets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Climbing, Concepts for game shows which would probably be better suited for Japan, How I will never be able to be a hand model.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something that doesn't involve a glowing rectangle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My extended family at the beach reminds me of an episode of The Jersey Shore.
