My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ambitious? Intense? Sure, but I always want to be able to laugh about it all.

I work to new age music and dance to blues. I occasionally spell like a Brit. I am really into science and art, maybe a little bit too much. I don't like to watch things as much as to do them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
PhD student in physics. I study photons, which are the fundamental particles responsible for what we know as light. These exhibit all of the weirdness that we call "quantum mechanics," such as not having a definite position and appearing to record things that didn't actually happen. I consider working with such oddities a perk of the job. These are the little pieces of science that make us ask again and again what the universe can do.

I was a tech entrepreneur for a few years after college. I even went to Chile to try to start a company in South America. I discovered, however, that software wasn't quite my thing. Hence I am studying physics with a more philosophical angle.

The longer term is mostly around professorship, but I could see myself starting a company again (this time in something that suits me better) or taking a profession in bringing science to the masses.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...things that will seem funny in retrospect.

I'm a generalist. I have several dance styles: swing, break, blues, contra, and capoeira. I have practiced massage. I have a yellow belt in judo and a blue-purple belt in kung fu. I am always a little field-split, and while physics has long been my academic center, my most influential bit of study was the class I took in solo performance (theatre). I always love being in front of an audience.

TV: hmm... I don't usually watch TV shows by myself - it's just not satisfying enough when there are so many other things to do. Here's an idea: I will watch whatever you will watch with me, especially if it is comedic.

Possibly Look Around You would be a good start to the style of TV I most enjoy. Also, the BBC Sherlock is fun.

Zenpencils is awesome.

Dancing. Usually blues, sometimes swing, occasionally clubs.

When I was a baby, I pooped in the bathtub and tried to blame it on the cat.
