Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmmmm... Where to start. I've moved around a lot the last few
years, but I love Seattle and plan on staying put for a while. I
love trying new things and enjoy being around people I can learn
I love to travel (I know, like everyone else), but I do try to go
somewhere international every year. I have a love for beer, blame
it on living in Portland during my prime drinking years. I am a big
sports fan, and I love going to sporting events in my free time. I
am a former high school and college tennis player, but
unfortunately I don't play much anymore.
I like being active and enjoy summer outdoor activities. I've
gotten into cycling the past year or so, and I try to hike and
paddleboard when I can!
I'm a pretty sarcastic person and I love playing devil's advocate.
I pretend to be an adrenaline junkie, I will try any food at least
once, and I am probably one of the most competitive people you will
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in clinical genetics at the University of Washington. A lot
of people ask me if I help people decide what their babies are
going to look like, or help to create a Gattaca-like world. Short
answer? Not yet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading is one of my favorite things to do, and I seem to gravitate
towards historical fiction and some biographies. I really like all
types of books, but I’m not huge on science fiction.
Some of my favorites are Pillars of the Earth, The Agony and the
Ecstasy, Middlesex, To Kill a Mockingbird, Lamb, Unbroken, etc… I
would be lying if I said I didn’t indulge every once in a while in
one of those horribly trendy books… I have read Twilight and The
Hunger Games, and I’m not at all ashamed…
It is too hard to answer the movie question. I really like so many
different types of movies, but usually shy away from the horror
genre… I am a horror movie wimp and usually have a hard time
sleeping after I see one.
My music taste is very random. After living in Tennessee, I really
have found a spot in my heart for country music. I also love
classic rock and a plethora of other genres. I'm not a huge fan of
techno or metal, but I'm pretty open to new music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my next adventure will be... mainly where I am going to travel
to next. I just got back from Argentina in June 2014, and I'm
thinking next year will be Australia or New Zealand??
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at a happy hour with friends, decompressing from the week.
Depending on the day, that could turn into a late night out, a make
your own pub crawl that would most likely involve shuffleboard, or
a night at home with pizza and a movie.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we may be a good match, or just want to know more about
me. However, you should know we may NOT get along so well if any of
the following are true:
- You have pictures of yourself without your shirt on, looking at
yourself in the mirror
- You have never been out of, or don't have any interest in ever
leaving the United States
- You believe in creationism over evolution
- Religion is a huge part of your life. I respect everyone's
beliefs, but organized religion is not for me.
- You are a Steelers or a Lakers fan... Seriously
You probably shouldn't message me if all you are going to say is
"hi" or "hey". Not really sure what type of response you would
expect with that little effort.
