Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll get this out there first so there's no confusion: I have
cerebral palsy and walk with crutches. I also live independently,
have a career, own my own condo and don't let my disability
interfere with my life. I am also a LGBT ally. This is
non-negotiable. If none of the above bothers you, keep on
Intelligence, passion, motivation are all turn-ons. Nothing is more
attractive than a woman who knows what she wants.
I use Science as a verb. I like to Science, a lot.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend most of my day trying to break software in new and unusual
ways. Getting paid to do it is just icing on the cake. I am also a
hobbyist programmer (C++/C#) and in the process of learning to play
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. Being diabetic, I have to pay some attention to what I eat
and since cardboard isn't exactly the pinnacle of delicious, I had
to learn to cook pretty quickly for myself.
I'm also pretty awesome at slinging code and karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Truth be told, they usually notice I walk with crutches. After they
get past that, eyes or smile.

Music (I'll list a "few" bands):
I tend to really like spicy food. So if it's got chilis, sriracha
sauce, or the like, I'll eat it. I like to indulge in sushi every
now and then (there's a great little place like 2 miles from my
office). Also, strawberries. All of them. *ALL* the strawberries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-My two cats, Eli and Wrex
-Kindle Fire (all my books in one place!)
-Science! This is how I recharge my batteries, so to speak
-Spotify (Seriously, why doesn't everyone use this yet?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When Robert Downey Jr. is going to hold a press conference saying
he really is Tony Stark.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about usually with two of my best friends, one of whom is
my bass teacher. Activities range from causing chaos at a random
gathering of our friends, jamming on our guitars, or having some
drinks and planning who next to invite to a random gathering (where
we will likely cause chaos).
If they are otherwise indisposed, usually playing with some sort of
new code idea or video game, usually something sci-fi.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a nerdcrush on Jessica Rabbit.
I learned to deal with anxiety by repeating the Sith Code to
myself. I was taught to find something easily repeatable I could
focus on and forget about what was making me anxious, so I chose

and I will usually respond.
