My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I came to the bay area last year to start work at NASA as a postdoc.
I feel really lucky, because grad school was such long, creeping, ceaseless degradation of all that is good–and I was worried that staying in the same field for a postdoc, I was in for more of the same. But everything’s been incredibly good at my new job - - the people, freedom, challenges, travel opportunities...

I’m pretty energetic, and been loving the bottomless rewards of exploring this area –
My favorite things at the moment are the coastal redwood parks, single track biking, indoor rock climbing, and trying out new hole-in-the-wall restaurants. I've been trying out West coast swing and waltz lessons recently.
I’m good at making plans, then goading/wheedling/cajoling others to come along.

I think I value considerateness/empathy above most qualities. I think I’m a good listener, and I think its it’s own reward to see if I can understand the people around me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently, I've been getting introduced to the world of open water swimming, in preparation for a race from Alcatraz this summer. It sounded like such a good idea 5 months ago! Update: I made it! So it *was* a good idea.

Also trying to reach the hidden corners of wild CA this year - in the the next 2 months, skyline-to-the-sea, Arroyo Seco and Trinity!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I seem to pick up "bear" nicknames, for a variety of traits :
"he's like a polar bear" - cold tolerance
"he's like a big teddy bear" - hopefully for sweet amiability, not for cold, dead button eyes
"he's like a grizzly bear" - usually after I lift something heavy or claw my way into a dead log with a beehive in it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a computer and internet...
functional, clean kitchen
my commuting bicycle
16 oz of coffee per day, but no more ...
The Onion, Daily Show clips
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What were dinosaurs like? What are aliens like? Why do people do bad stuff?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to the movies or dinner with friends, or packing for a weekend trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I teared up a little at the end of Terminator 2. "I order you not to go! I ORDER you not to go!!!"-- John Conner to T-500
