Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spend most of my time doing research. When I'm not playing
scientist I like to bike, run, and enjoy living in Boulder. I enjoy
sitting around watching movies, discussing politics and current
events, and good books. I read voraciously and make a habit of
reading several newspapers and magazines on a daily basis to keep
up with the news. I'd love to add more hobbies to the list, but as
a graduate student my time and money are limited right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student in Chemistry at CU Boulder. I am an organic
chemistry RA to pay the bills. I'm finishing my PhD this semester
and moving to Knoxville for a Post Doc at the University of
I'm hoping to go into science policy work after that, hopefully in
Washington. Beyond that I like doing triathlons and other
activities trying to stay as fit as I can without actually having
to go to a gym.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not being serious, chemistry, knowing trivia, interesting
conversations, pushing things to 11, being sarcastic,
self-deprecating humor, and being loud.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice. People usually hear me long before they see me. I have a
very bad habit of jumping into things head first. Or if I'm out on
a bike ride then they notice my funny clothes and pointy bike
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love science fiction (both movies and books). I'm a bit of a
cinephile and can't really list all the things I like. Same with
books. I usually end up reading whatever is in front of me. I like
Rock, Blues, and Movie Scores (entirely too much - Elfman,
Williams, Zimmer, etc).
I like to keep up on current events so I read The Economist, New
York Times, Politico, and Stratfor on a regular basis.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My bike, family, friends, running shoes, lots of books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Chemistry, triathlon, marathons, politics, people and their
motivations, public policy, where I might find a job, what I want
to train for next year (I like to plan ahead)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends. Sometimes work, other times out in Boulder.
You should message me if
