Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Lincoln about a week ago and I am excited to
explore! I grew up in California, and have moved around quite a bit
over the last 10-15 years (in the US, and I lived in Israel for a
short time). It can be pretty exhausting, but I have to say I love
experiencing so many new things, and meeting so many different
kinds of people. It reminds me how awesome it is to travel and
explore the world.
A few things about me... I love getting out and trying new things
(which is why I guess I have moved around so much... also because
my job has sort of made it hard to stay in one place... which I
think will be changing soon!). I love going to see live music, and
I love photography. And one of my favorite things to do on a warm
day is go have brunch on a patio somewhere... but I also really
enjoy being active in the outdoors... I have run one half marathon
(and hope to do another one in the spring!), and I also really love
cycling, but the more active the day, the more i look forward to a
little time on my couch to unwind. Usually with a good movie and a
bottle of wine... and someone that makes me laugh.
Sense of humor and wit are important to me... I try to throw out my
fair share of zingers and I love to have them thrown back at me.
The people that know me best would say I'm outgoing, easy to
connect with, and full of passion and compassion. That passion
definitely extends to my work... I'm very driven when it comes to
my job, though I know there are many more important things in life
than work. I adore my family (parents, two older brothers,
sisters-in-law, 4 nephews, 1 niece, and a huge extended family!)...
as far as that goes, I truly am the luckiest person on Earth. I
just wish they lived closer...
Anyway, if there's anything else you want to know, feel free to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a professor at UNL and run a research lab there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books are tough. I tend to read a lot of books that relate to my
line of work (Blink, My Lobotomy, Look Me in the Eye, Thinking Fast
and Slow), and other favorites are books by Milan Kundera, Kurt
Vonnegut, and also The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Shows: Arrested Development (before the last season!), Six Feet
Under, West Wing, and definitely Breaking Bad. And I have to
admit... I've been known to watch stupid reality TV to unwind after
a stressful day.
Movies: Pulp Fiction, The Departed, Shawshank Redemption, Seven, A
Few Good Men. there's more, but those come to mind quickly because
I've seen them each about 1,000 times. More recently, I saw Seven
Psychopaths, and I really liked it.
Music: really runs the range from electronica and alternative to
pop/hip hop. Some faves are Radiohead, Imogen Heap, Florence + the
Machine, Stars, Ladytron, La Roux... well, too many to name.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The human brain. Probably far too much time actually...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm new to Lincoln, so not a whole lot the last week or so... just
walking around and getting to know the area. But usually... dinner
and drinks somewhere with friends, blowing off some steam from the
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That's tough to think of... but I'm sure it will come out. I'm sort
of an open book.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we'd get along. But please don't send me a message that
just says "Hi"... I like it when it seems like someone actually
took the time to find out about me and thinks we'd have something
interesting to talk about.
