Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I just moved from Seattle to Edinburgh.
I'm trying to find the word that describes me.. and.. I'd have to
Yeah. Eclectic is a good word. I like going out and doing exciting
things (just went paragliding), and never miss the chance to travel
or do things people would think me insane for (the sport of
Brains are fascinating and I'm really interested in the
intersection between what makes us human and the biology that does
so. If you know anything about neuroscience, I'm hoping to study
embryology/development of the nervous system, pathways involved in
stress and mood, and other related things.
I also love to photograph aesthetically pleasing things like people
and architecture as well as draw, and I worked at my school paper
as a designer. Art and science make me happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just got a B.A. in Biology and a B.S. in Psych, and I just moved to
Edinburgh and have started doing a masters in neuroscience.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good at lots of worthless things like drawing, taking
pictures of people, and wooing cats. I played classical harp for
over 12 years, and I'm also pretty proficient at academic things. I
have a chronic school issue (finished year 6 of undergrad, finally
graduated, now working on a masters).
I do photography and freelance graphic design/illustration for
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height! I have a glorious and sometimes inconvenient height of
72" (~183 cm).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Quentin Tarantino, Joss Whedon, Robert Rodriguez, and Wes Anderson
are some of my favorite directors. I tend towards the witty and the
gritty, and often cheesy. Mysteries and sci fi (Orphan Black =
life) are pretty fantastic. Favorite movie is Lucky Number Slevin,
hands down. Shows include Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Scrubs as far as
I love to read science fiction (Le Guin, Card, Heinlein, etc) and
speculative fiction. Neuroscience, evolution, and popular science
books are up there, too (Matt Ridley, Mary Roach, Gary Marcus,
As far as music goes, I usually listen to electronic music (funk,
glitch hop, deep house, trap occasionally, any bass music.. lots o'
stuff. You will probably see me at a show at least once a month,
more likely 2-3 times a month), power metal, downtempo, disco,
jazz, garage rock, grunge, big band/etc etc etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, sunlight, the internet, chapstick, feminism,
food/water/oxygen/necessary atmospheric conditions, and my
And the Oxford comma.
And cats (mine are now sadly thousands of miles away, so if you
have a cat, you have an exponentially greater chance of me wanting
to hang out with you).
Can I just have 9?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh god. I think a lot.
Stuff about brains, stuff about whether or not we absorb calories
from our own saliva, stuff about how people become contortionists,
stuff about bonobos, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Simply hanging out with people out-n'-'bout or sitting at home
reading/watching movies, etc. Also, since I recently moved and
don't know what's cool anymore, I need to get out of the house, so
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I did an analysis of compatible or incompatible zodiac sun signs
with my own and match percentage on OkC. Results indicate that
horoscopes (or match percentages?) are bullshit (N=71, p=0.8048). I
will literally show you my spreadsheet.

...you're smart, okay with associating with a girl around your
height or taller, interested in everything, and up for trying
anything at least once. Be ready; I am a fantastic
