Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to challenge myself both physically and mentally. I am
looking for someone who has opened their mind to the world at
large, but can also appreciate the small wonders of everyday life;
a person that can successfully juggle being a responsible adult
without letting go of the simple joys of being a kid every now and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have always wanted to be a scientist. The world is a truly
amazing place which we all too often take for granted. For example,
consider a chocolate chip cookie. Now imagine all the manufacturing
processes, logistical challenges, and technological advancements
that culminate in this hunk of chocolate gooey goodness, all riding
on the bizarre evolutionary history that gives us the power and
desire to make such things in the first place. Such a cookie is
pretty much a statistical impossibility in our universe. Even the
simplest things (sometimes especially the simplest things) are
doorways to great mysteries. I've dedicated my life to uncovering
at least some of them. Only I study brains instead of chocolate
chip cookies. Those I just eat and savor at a philosophical level
(the cookies, not the brains).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sciency stuff and random animal facts (side effect of being a
Discovery channel junkie). I'm a martial arts instructor. I'm a
pretty good juggler and aspiring aerial acrobat. I'm also ranked in
the top 5% of Fruit Ninja Kinect players in the world according to
my Xbox, a accomplishment which makes me inordinately proud :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books (currently transitioning to e-books)
a good workout at least once a week
The great outdoors
good friends to share it all with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I enjoy the simple pleasures of life, but in my contemplative
moments I like to dwell on bigger issues: The boundaries of human
knowledge, the evolutionary future of humanity, and the fate of our
planet. Also squirrels. And baked goods. Not necessarily in that
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recently a substantial portion of my friday nights have been spent
on a trapeeze. But it varies quite a bit.
