I'm a PhD candidate in chemistry, so work is life, although I still try to make time for hobbies, like swimming, hiking, marksmanship (bow and arrow, rifle, anything really), home improvement, and nerd-games. Cat person, metalhead, professional know-it-all.
What I’m doing with my life
Science. Trying to choose between academia (teaching scientists), industry (being a scientist), and patent law (selling out).
I’m really good at
Growing a beard, cooking (it's chemistry you can eat!), all that
academic mumbo-jumbo, most things electronic or mechanical,
listening, skiing, and loudly saying really offensive things right
as my boss is walking in.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I talk about myself too much when I'm nervous. I'm a little quick to judge, but quicker to offer support.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Kurt Vonnegut.
Grandma's Boy (in spite of how juvenile it is), Goodbye Lenin, The Lives of Others, Kebab Connection.
Game of Thrones, Archer, Breaking Bad.
Metal, industrial, trip hop, jazz, classical.
German food is my favorite, but I will eat basically anything.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
becoming a mad scientist super-villain.
On a typical Friday night I am
wishing I had better things to do than work late in the lab.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's a lot I don't like about myself, and sometimes I spend more
energy feeling crappy about it than trying to fix it.
