My self-summary
I've just returned to San Francisco after moving to Baltimore for a while.

I'm a scientist, which I find really engaging and fulfilling, and I'm grateful that it's a full-time job too.

I'm pretty serious about good food. I'm a great vegetarian cook (really, cook who happens to be vegetarian; I've impressed both vegans and committed carnivores, sometimes at the same time).

I enjoy going out, especially for live music, which pretty much needs to be part of my life. And dancing.

I travel quite a bit, often for work, but it sometimes lines up with fun too, most recently in Berlin.

I've been doing a lot of yoga recently.
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring out how living things are made of tiny, molecular machines.
I’m really good at
Abstraction, which serves me better in some things than in others.
The first things people usually notice about me
The long hair, or perhaps the glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The City and the City. Half-made World. Cloud Atlas. A Visit from the Goon Squad. The Blind Assassin. Middlesex. Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity. Midnight's Children. One Hundred Years of Solitude. Master and Margarita. Herman Hesse's books.

Primer. Amores Perros. City of God. Brick. Lost in Translation. The Devil's Backbone. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The Conformist. The Hunger.

Amanda Palmer / Dresden Dolls. Ladytron. Goth / industrial. Electronic. Mahler, Shostakovich.

I don't exactly have a favorite--nearly anything can be done well, and I'm always interested in something new.
The six things I could never do without
Just one thing, non-attachment. And a sense of irony.
On a typical Friday night I am
...deep in some elaborate cooking project. I know people who say that cooking is much like labwork. I think the difference is that cooking usually works, even though it's a bit different every time, but experiments somehow fail even when you're doing everything the same.
You should message me if
...you want to get together and talk about whatever in the world currently fascinates you.

…you want to go in search of some flavor of excitement together.
