Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a scientist and a scholar. There was no escaping school. I
just got my PhD, so now pursuing the next stop on my career.
I like video
, intelligent conversations, drinking
, shopping, people watching,
dancing, and unique experiences. I can be quirky, but get along
with most people. I really like Atlanta and hope to stay for at
least several more months. There are places to go, just need
someone to go with. :) I am really into food
and drinks. I prefer TV over
I am intelligent, generous, and entertaining.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my PhD at Georgia Tech
. I grew up in the
north, but am enjoying the south and Atlanta. People have been very
friendly, for the most part. I'm looking for temporary work right
now, like teaching, and web development. Later, I plan on doing a
postdoc and starting a serious scientific career. I want to develop
molecular visualizations, possible applied to studying the origin
of life or drug development. Someday, I want to be professor.
I'm trying to make the best of whatever time left in Atlanta I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning, explaining things, Chemistry
, making people laugh.
I'm good at improvising cooking and cocktail making. I like to make
up a cocktail out of available ingredients every once in
I'm good at finding ways to be efficient. This may or may not
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a Northern accent, not quite Bostonian. I'm trying to figure
out a cool goatee. People will call me smart and interesting. They
will sometimes want to buy me a drink.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a hard time making decisions and picking favorites because
so many things can be good and not really comparable. Let's try
anyways. I am a huge fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
The book is the best version, but ever incarnation is wonderful. I
also enjoy hard science fiction books, the kind based on real
science. Dave Barry is probably the funniest writer in the world,
right up there with the late Douglas Adams.
There are so many good movies. I can't really pick favorites again.
I tend to enjoy comedies and science fiction the most. Spaceballs
is absolutely brilliant in a Mel Brooks sort of way. I haven't
really kept up with movies lately. I will watch an occasional
documentary or independent film on Netflix.
I watch TV. There is some very high quality smart TV out there. I
watch that, but I also watch a lot of regular TV. Some of the
better stuff, New Girl, Shameless, Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Dr.
Who, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, True Blood, and
Game of Thrones of course.
I like a variety of music. I prefer smaller serious bands over Top
40, well, at least if I'm paying for it. If it's at a house party,
fine, top 40 can be good dancing. Concerts and festivals I would go
to would be on the more hippy side. Venues I like include Terminal
West and Northside Tavern.
Food, well, I have a passion for food. I almost became a chef.
choosing between chemistry and cooking was difficult. In the end i
chose chemistry, it keeps me in school, potentially forever as a
professor. I can be creative with my cooking when I decide
I like craft beer. Like most people, IPA's are my favorite.
However, I enjoy most styles. It's winter beer season now, so lots
of great porters and stouts will be available. Sours are the new
"it" beer, and I'm enjoying them so far. The Atlanta beer scene is
relatively small, but growing.
I'm trying to get more into sushi. I don't eat it enough. I haven't
been able to find good Indian food in Atlanta. There was one place
I mostly liked, but it went out of business.
I've built up quite a tolerance to capsaicin accidentally. A hot
sauce has to be at least habanero hot for me to get a kick out of
it. This makes ordering hot food out tricky. It's usually not hot
enough. Some places might serve it too hot for challengers. The
risk of that, is that going too hot causes your tolerance to go up
more, making the problem worse.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2) Food / drinks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe, and Everything.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It might be a Netflix night. Sometimes it's just chilling with
people in the apartment, maybe playing games. It could be going out
to a bar, or house party, or music venue.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't drive. If you can do the driving, I can make up for it in
other ways. Luckily we have Lyft and Uber now.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like science, you like me, you want to hang out. I'm mostly
looking for friends, casual dating, and short term dating. I am
open to long term dating if I meet the right women, but I can't
promise to stay in Atlanta, so we'd have to deal with that.
