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. Dr Pepper is also involved.

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 with tin cans 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.
- Reassembling a broken car with clothes hangers.
- Scaring the hell out of a tour guide and later reaping her fierce revenge.
- Getting lost in the legit dungeons of a legit castle. At night.
- 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 main aspiration is to know how to do absolutely everything by age 40. 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. You'll notice I've listed those as different.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
I've been on a pop science kick lately -- Sync, Outliers, Six Degrees, Art of Choosing, Cosmos, Chaos, etc. I'm about 1/3 of the way through all of those -- I have a literary ailment called "starting-all-the-books-and-not-finishing-them-itis."

Movies:
Old classic noir flicks are my favorite. For newer stuff I love Wes Anderson, Soderbergh, Coen Brothers, and anything Miyazaki. Also Scorsese, Kubrick, Edgar Wright, and Guy Ritchie.

Music:
(50%) EDM/ Trance -- Above & Beyond, Andrew Bayer, Super8 & Tab, Daft Punk, Glitch Mob.
(15%) Jazz -- Kenny Burrell, Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis.

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 value emotional intimacy and are willing to work towards it. You kick ass at what you do, but don't take it all too seriously. You have intricate theories about superfluous things. You like waffles.
