My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm sort of a spontaneous, adventure craving person.

My career is that of a scientist, studying how microbes cause disease (by poking and prodding them), and trying to use that knowledge to create something good, whether that is a new medical treatment of the disease, or something new altogether. I always want to know "why?".

My hobbies, on the other hand, involve more actual button pushing. Most of my outside of work/school time revolves around photography; taking pictures, taking road trips, watching the stars, hiking and camping.

I started to play around with photography around four years ago. I was new here, and wanted to have an excuse to just go out. So far, I've day-tripped crater lake from here, nearly been stuck in the sand in northern Nevada, stared at the Milky Way until 3am, and have even chased the sunrise across a sand dune field.

I enjoy being spontaneous with my trips, planning them, at most a couple of days in advance, while many are planned within just a few minutes before leaving. I love the idea of just thinking of a place to go, and just heading out, right then and there.

It's still not enough, to simply go out and see for me. I want to talk about it, to see how other people see these places, their worlds, and learn from their experiences.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For now, I'm working on my PhD in Microbiology at UC Davis, and am currently in my fourth year. I study the fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans, looking into either how I'm going to create zombies with it, or hijack it's disease-causing ways to help deliver drugs.

Eventually, I'd like to work for, or possibly start a pharmaceutical company, developing new drugs or new strategies for the treatment of diseases.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at seeing and analyzing things when I'm in the lab or behind my camera. I'm also really good at being oblivious much of the time as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually, the first thing people notice about me is my calm, happy demeanor, then my willingness to listen, and finally, how excitable I can be, how I can "nerd out" over things that interest me.

and my cat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Almost everything, really: what trips I want to take, what shots I want to nail, which experiment I should try, and when am I going to do any of them, to name a few.

Oddly, I also spend a lot of time thinking about synonyms and homonyms. For example, how many different variations of the word "maze" can you use in the phrase: "Corn Maze"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, for me, there really isn't such a thing as a typical Friday night. Some Fridays are spent in the company of friends, others are spent at home in comfort, many are spent in the lab, trying to move projects forward, or even more are spent out in the middle of nowhere, gazing at the stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often regret my overuse of certain words, such as "Awesome", "Amazing", or "Incredible", because I have nothing strong enough to describe my feelings when I see something truly awe-inspiring, such as the sharp, gargantuan peaks of the Rocky Mountains, or the fluorescent-blue glacial lakes contained within. I feel that comedian Louis C.K. states this view best in his rant of overused words.
