My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to the Bay Area just over a year ago; it's very different from my beloved Boston, but I'm coping. Nominally, I'm here to do lots of school, to fulfill my dream of being Dr. Adorkable_sf. But I'm also thrilled to soak up the many new adventures waiting on the west coast.

I try my best to live like the heroine of Cake’s “Short Skirt / Long Jacket.” I am curious about the world and everything in it, so there is nothing more attractive to me than a man who is intellectually playful (30-Rock-style screwball banter, anyone?) and would explore the whole world with me, whether by taking a spontaneous road trip, dominating trivia night, or raising the stakes with a bake-off (spoiler alert: you'll have a hard time topping my brown-butter chocolate chip cookies with sea salt).

I love innovative ideas, and when I’m not streaming the newest TED talk, I'm crashing a cool conference (message me for tips to go incognito). Other dorky tendencies include bringing my entrepreneurial friends to my office on the weekend to help them whiteboard their product launches, playing with iPhone apps, and loving board games of any kind.

I am ambitious and goal oriented, but for me people always come first. My relationships with my close friends are one of the most important aspects of my life. As for goals, I tend to set them for everything that’s important to me: fun, friends, career and spiritual fulfillment, for starters. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, setting blood donation records, and learning to fly a small engine prop plane are on my goals list for this lifetime. Stargazing in Death Valley, small acts of kindness and service, and backpacking / safari through Tanzania are on the list for this year.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've just started a PhD. It is equal parts information firehose, normalcy assassin, and carte-blanche invitation to solve whatever puzzles me. I don't intend to play small with my research or my impact. And teaching? Heaven.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Rocking red lipstick on the regular. Connecting people and ideas. Maintaining a huge stack of books on my nightstand. Making all breakfast foods. Whipping up crackerjack PowerPoint slides. Semi-productive procrastination. Quickly sussing out the best stuff any town has to do. Mixing a mean cocktail. Asking really good questions. Being in the moment, or trying.

Some things I'm terrible at, just to even the score: Bowling. Keeping up on foreign affairs. Reaching things on high shelves. Giving up on TV shows that used to be good but have long since jumped the shark. Leaving the office at a decent hour. Gardening. Planning meals ahead of time. PARALLEL PARKING. Spelling the words "parallel" and "curriculum" (had to look 'em up).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My boundless enthusiasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I’m a voracious reader, so I am never reading one thing at once—here are a recent few:

In Defense of Food - Because I'm trying to learn more about food systems, in an attempt to motivate myself to eat more ethically / more vegetables.

What Are You Looking At? - Because I'm trying to develop an appreciation of modern art. The author is brilliant at drawing connections between the aesthetics, concepts, and major players for most of the big modern art -isms of the last 200 years, in a way that's nicely accessible.

Unaccustomed Earth - Because I love beautiful prose, and anything Jhumpa Lahiri has ever written is absolutely luscious.

Music I'm into lately: Andrew Bird, Florence + the Machine, P.O.S., Gin Wigmore, ZZ Ward, HAIM. My favorite genre at the moment is wronged-woman / stomp-chorus / raccoon-eyes. That's totally a thing. I am 1000% on board with anything Jack White-related. Let's dance to Uptown Funk in the kitchen.

TV I can't get enough of: Rick & Morty, The Mindy Project, House of Cards, Broad City, Cosmos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Frivolous? Let's go frivolous.

The promise of upcoming travel
Wobbly peep-toe heels
March Madness - particularly the Tar Heels
Whiteboarding sessions
A well-stocked bar with a Boston shaker
Jon Stewart's giggle
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dancing my ass off in a cardio gym class, then prettying up for a night on the town. Mainlining episodes of the West Wing or New Girl with my friends. Or prepping a backpack for an early Saturday adventure (best packing list of late required binoculars for snowy owl spotting).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're curious, funny, kind, and generous. You spend at least a little time thinking about how to make the world a better place, and believe in a little magic, too. You are the kind of person who wants to get up early to have a rambling adventure, and stay up late to have an electric conversation.

Or if you have a YouTube video that would make me laugh. I'm a sucker for those. Recent favorite:
