Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hrm... How to start this?
I suppose we could start here:
^I sometimes make sketch comedies on YouTube. Latest entry: Carry
the Lable Guy. Sums me up pretty well, I'm afraid.
So now that most of you are (at least) mildly concerned for my
mental health, autobiographical sound byte: born and raised on an
organic produce farm in Wisconsin, who left his home to study,
work, and be a citizen of pretty much everywhere! I'm currently
traveling about, while teaching and finishing my PhD in Biomedical
Engineering at Háskólinn í Reykjavík in Iceland :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently made the swap to biomedical engineering from nuclear
engineering and medical physics (courtesy of the University of
Wisconsin - Madison. Go Badgers!!). In short, I went from pursuing
my dream of harnessing fusion power to pursuing my dream about
becoming a cyborg. We'll see which happens first. Maybe I'll
combine the two and Hulk out (Mark Ruffalo style).
Right now, I build hearts and figure out ways to image them!! I'm
in cardiac tissue engineering and translational myology - currently
trying to start a department out in Iceland. That's the short term
goal at any rate - eventually, I'd like to focus my work in the
context of the developing world, either in directed biomedical
research focusing on global health concerns or in self-contracted
engineering for developing rural clinics. Still might end up going
the medical school route eventually - long road ahead for sure!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hrm. I really dislike this question. How about the stuff I really
First things first: TRAVEL. My most recent move was to Reykjavík,
Iceland a couple of years ago, but additionally, over the last
seven years or so, I've been fortunate enough to have lived and/or
studied in France, the UK, India, Malta, Germany, Rwanda, Uganda,
Mexico, Italy, Morocco, and South Africa, and it's hopefully only
the tip of the iceberg :D. Seriously, it would be awesome to sit
down and talk travel, if you've got a story or two.
I also love the outdoors. And sports. Snowboarding. Ooh and I
definitely have a self-diagnosed case of
musical-instrument-learning ADD. I play the guitar, trumpet,
saxophone, french horn, melophone, piano, and drums. I'm
ridiculously passionate about music, in general. That, and
Scrabble. And Bananagrams. Ugh, make that pretty much all board
games. And I love to cook!! In fact, at any given moment, I might
very well be found coated in a very fine layer of some sort of
spice. Usually turmeric.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Usually, I'm tripping over something remarkably unremarkable or
laughing way too loudly at mild punnery or sexual innuendo.
Also, I tend to have a really stupid, massive grin on my face for
no apparent reason. Makes finding pics for this thing nearly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Authors: Chuck Palahniuk, Ayn Rand, Paul Farmer, Neil Stephenson,
Movies: RomComs, black and white classics, cheesy horror/kung fu,
and Disney. Although... My favorite movie of all time involved a
$7,000 budget. If you've never seen Primer, and you enjoy nerding
out about time travel, you're seriously missing out on life.
TV: ADVENTURE TIME. Also, Rick and Morty. Alsoalso, Packer football
(major cheese head, right here). Getting exponentially more
interested in Bruins hockey after living in Boston for a while
Music: Mostly Indie/Folk or various forms of Electronica (been
fortunate enough to have seen most of the top Trance/House DJ's
live!). I also love Jazz and Prog/Metal (used to be in several
bands), and I love good orchestral biz. Music is something I
absolutely cannot live without.
Food: ALL OF THE THINGS. However, I particularly LOVE Indian food
and sushi. Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, and Ethiopian are definitely
high up on my list, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future and where I might eventually end up, global medicine, how
to epically modify my Nerf guns, good food and strong coffee,
random nonsense and fantastical wonderment, animals, world travel,
playing music, whether or not I'll ever meet somebody who enjoys
dessert as much as I do, and how funny even the smallest things in
life can be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully not in the lab! Usually, I'm out and about with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make embarrassing YouTube videos involving drunk science,
classical music, and a Scandinavian accent. You'll have to get to
know me better for the deets, I'm afraid.

You think you would ever enjoy French Toast in bed on a bright
Sunday morning with a strong cup of coffee, a crossword puzzle, and
no real agenda. Except to perhaps jump on a plane to anywhere.
