Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a full time medical and graduate student. I currently work in a
cancer biology lab studying experimental therapies for
neuroblastoma chemo resistance. It's an amazing work environment,
where I get to use high tech tools and work with remarkably smart
people on important problems. It's a dream come true. When I'm not
at school I enjoy biking around Houston's bayous, long distance
running, and enjoying good coffee.
I love to travel and have been on many international trips to date.
I've backpacked across Japan, SCUBA dived in Cozumel and Belize,
walked across the locks of the Panama Canal, and hiked a mountain
in Hawai'i. When time permits I participate in CouchSurfing where I
host travelers at my home. To date I've met people from Italy,
China, Hungary, Denmark, Greece, Finland, England, Guatemala,
Germany, and many US states.
Family and friends are incredibly important to me. I am from a
small Texas town and try to go home 2-3 times a year. The change of
environment back to dense trees, farms, and five red lights can be
quite refreshing! My friends here in Houston are mostly people I
know from school and lab and they are some of the most caring, fun,
and smart people that I have ever met. When we get downtime we
enjoy playing board games, watching movies, going to a local bar,
or catching up over a meal.
I'd be up for a dating relationship if I meet the right person, but
I'm also up for making a new friend and finding people who share
likeminded interests. I'm looking for someone that's got a good
sense of humor, an interest in trying new things, a passion for
reading and current events, the itch to travel, and an interest in
exercise and the outdoors. If this sounds up your alley, then I
look forward to hearing from you :-)

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a full time student in a MD-PhD program. Eventually
I'd like to have an academic position at a medical center where I
