Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I feel that the majority of people just look at the pictures,
skim the self summary, and look for any common interests that might
be response worthy. Because let's face it. You are most likely not
going to message me, and even if I come up with some witty, unique
message to send to you, I figure it is about a 10% chance for a
So I'll sum it up somewhat briefly. Feel free to skim.
I am your run of the mill, overworked and underpaid post-doc.
Not entirely underpaid, but student loans aren't exactly helping
with the financial status. I’m a post-doc biomedical engineer
working in an immunology lab.
Bet you are super interested by now? Just wait, it gets more
fascinating as I list the things that probably 90% of every other
guy lists as interests:
Other less common but not unique interests:
I am the most interesting man in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a lab playing with cells, wondering why they don't do what they
should even when I threaten them with bleach and the sink.
Trying to keep the PI happy.
Working towards that next step to get a real job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I mostly read journal articles which at times could act as a
sleep aid. When I have the chance to read for leisure, I like most
things by Michael Crichton, Gunslingers, Harry Potter... not going
to lie, and various other addictive series
Movies: Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, Boondock Saints, Shawshank
redemption, Bourne Series, Wedding Crashers, Lock Stock And Two
Smoking Barrels, 40 Year old Virgin, Superbad, Beerfest,
Underworld, Saving Private Ryan.....
Music: Most all types of rock, from classic to modern. I'm a big
fan of 90's rock. Bands range from Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull to
Tool and Disturbed to Rage Against the Machine and Alice In Chains,
to Collective Soul and Matchbox 20. I can tolerate country and some
hip hop. Can't really stand most rap.
Food: The free kind is the best. But I love food in general. I am
pretty much fat kid stuck in an athlete's body. I am especially
fond of seafood, such as crab.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pretty sure anymore than those four you can survive without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying to figure out people's novelty license plates
Why research doesn't work, what I am going to eat for dinner, my
goals, the future, and life in general. I mean...what would Brian
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing watching movies or going out. Depends on where people are
or what is going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I eat croutons as snacks. Mrs. Cubbison's Cheese and Garlic are
amazing. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Wait...we established this one already. It pretty much isn't going

-You are smart, attractive, easy going, and like to laugh
-You think I'm slightly amusing
-You like croutons
