My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from Los Angeles. Most recently from Chicago. Funny and amicable. Chatty and ridiculous. Curious and creative. Perceptive and accepting. I have a thing for tattoos and glasses.

I've worked and schooled at various places around the world. Here are some fun conversation-starters:

- Winning a Michael Jackson dance-a-like contest.
- Building a makeshift oven from scratch because cake.
- Studying the ancient lore of clay ovens because brownies.
- Mastering the art of dutch ovens because cinnamon roll cobbler.
- Here there be many ovens and baked goods.
- Organizing and winning a human Hungry Hungry Hippos competition.
- Perfecting the strategy of building the tallest potato-and-toothpick towers.
- Reassembling a broken car with clothes hangers.
- Scaring the hell out of a horror-tour tour guide and later reaping her fierce revenge.
- Having a puppy vomit an entire goat's head into my lap.
- Cooking and eating a cow's tongue.
- Conducting a legitimate research project about people stealing spoons.
- Rafting the Nile. Twice.
- Driving the entirety of Route 66.
- Driving the entirety of the I-5.
- Using seaweed-flavored toothpaste for a month.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my second master's. I'm a pretty kick-ass field researcher and data scientist -- most of my work has to do with ethnic and other social relations in central Africa. Sometimes people team up and do awesome things and I try to figure out how more of that. Sometimes people get angry and hurt each other and I try to figure out how not more of that.

I'm also an avid dabbler in the fine arts of theatre, film, volleyball, racquetball, disk jockeying, writing, and eating mochi, among other things. My goal by age 40 is to know how to do everything. Except ocean diving because the ocean is the devil.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Terrible puns and making you laugh. Also, grilled cheese sandwiches. The things I can do with pepper jack should be illegal (and probably are in some states).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Spirituality, connectedness, relationships, fulfillment, a host of things, really. I can be pretty silly, but I'm also deeply passionate about what I do, what I want to do, and how I want to be better. I think a lot about that stuff :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You display excellent emotional intelligence and expect me to do the same. You value intimacy as more than just sex and are willing to work towards it. You kick ass at what you do, but don't take it all too seriously. You have passionate theories about superfluous things. You like waffles.
