Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! Thanks for reading my profile! I teach at community college
and have been back in San Diego since the summer of 2007. Before
that, was in graduate school in Montana and Tulane University in
New Orleans; then worked at the Centers for Disease Control in
Atlanta and National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland
studying infectious disease. Now I like putzing around town on my
bicycle, coming up with the lyrics to the O.K. Cupid theme song,
and can often times be found counting stars on cloudless nights
(although I often lose my place each night and have to start anew
the next eve) or getting cats down from trees. Of course, I love
waxing philosophical and speaking hypothetical, but can be quite
grounded as well. This Spring 2013 semester I'm taking two courses,
an Advanced G.I.S. course and a Beginning Horticulture course. I
took a photography class last semester and am now out-and-about
doing photography as much as I can. I get my groove on listening to
Bryan Ferry's "Slave to Love" or the Waif's Highway 1 (Twelve hour
I've never been married, nor have any children. I like biking and
adventuring out in the desert, ocean, or mountains, or wherever.
Send me a message if you'd like to meet and have you a good sense
of humor, or at least enjoy a good sense of humor! Also, if you're
an Aimee Mann fan, let me know! Also, I love watching common stocks
fluctuate on a daily basis and when I do get a chance to watch
television (which isn't often), I love any of the Geico and the
Most Interesting Man in the World commercials.
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land.
Live long and prosper,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach microbiology and general biology, but also enjoy taking
classes and biking. I've taken a few anthropology classes, an
investment class, photography, and currently a Geographic
Information Systems class. Currently writing a textbook, as
daunting as that sounds. I try to write a bit each day.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Rainy days are great for spending time thinking about things, but
other than that, I'm out doing something.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
