My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a graduate student studying economics working on earning my PhD. I still don't really know anything yet but I'm working on it. I love the outdoors and try to make it out hiking and camping as much as I can. I'm also sort of a foodie and I really like cooking big meals. Maybe more like a non-practicing foodie since I'm living on the budget of a grad student and besides who can really afford black truffles these days. I've also been finding contract work here and there and I'm working on my hustle to keep getting more.

I'm also a big film dork. I try not to be snobby about it, though! Sometimes you're in the mood for a Michael Bay explosionfest and sometimes you're in the mood for a super-serious Warner Herzog documentary, you know? I'm doing my best to watch as many classics as I can. I also really like to read (pretty much only novels though). I love books for the exact same reason I love films. I guess I just really like being told stories.

When I was growing up we moved around a lot. Never east of the Mississippi but I've lived in Utah, Washington, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma (and Colorado has always been something of a home-away-from-home). I liked them all!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm entering my third year of a program that typically takes five years so I will likely be in Santa Cruz until 2015. Once I finish up here, I guess the next step is to find work for an economist. Not planning on trying to become a professor because there is a whole load of bullshit that you wouldn't necessarily know about if you don't see academia from the inside.

What I want is to be able to get a good job in a place that I want to live for quite a while. I've done the moving around thing enough, I'm going to be ready to try the staying still thing. Except for travel! I want to travel the world and taste all of their foods.

I just started doing yoga a while ago and my yoga instructor told me that I have very flexible hips, which is pretty sweet I guess. I wasn't able to fit it into my schedule after taking classes for about a month and I fell out of it but I would not object to starting back up again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to think I'm pretty good at making and keeping close friends. I'm trying to become good at teaching but it's a work in progress. I've spent a few years perfecting my recipe for pasta sauce and it's getting there. I haven't played in years but I'm pretty sure I can still stomp a mean game of DDR. If you don't know what that last one means, it's probably for the best.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Farewell to Arms by Hemingway is my favorite book. Right now I'm working my way through Haruki Murakami works. I loved Sputnik Sweetheart and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I was half way through the last book of 1Q84 but I left it on a plane before I finished it (so if anybody has a copy they went to lend me...). I also really like the beats, particularly William S Burroughs. I've read half of Bukowski's novels, too. I try to convince anyone I can to read Raymond Carver's short stories. I've read sort of an embarrassing number of Nick Hornby's books, too.

Movies: I've seen The Fifth Element more times than I can count. Same with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. There are too many films I love that I feel like if I started making a list I would be doing this for hours. Directors: Kubrick, PT Anderson, Kevin Smith (hit and miss), Davids Lynch, Fincher, and Cronenberg. You know, guys like that. I am not phased by black and white, silent, or foreign films. I've gone to the Secret Film Festival at the Del Mar for two years straight now and I love it! Hand-picked foreign and indie movies shown straight from midnight to noon across two screens.

Music: I listen to pretty much anything. An example of CDs I keep in my car: The Magic Flute (Mozart opera), a Boris album (Japanese drone metal/noise rock group), The Black Album (Jay-Z), the Violent Femmes (self-titled), There is Love in You (Four Tet), Doolittle (Pixies). I also have an unhealthy obsession with Sigur Ros. I've been getting into old jazz and country recently, too. Billie Holiday and Hank Williams have been on the rotation. My car has had the newest Stromae album running for like two weeks straight now.

Food: I'll try anything once. South/Southeast asia (Vietnam, Thailand, and India in particular) probably is my favorite region as far as cuisine. But I love food from all over. I made kalbi beef a few weeks ago and it is one of the most delicious things I've ever created.

Drinks: Whiskey/whisky. In order: Scotch (single malt) and Scotch copycats (like Japanese), Irish, Bourbon. I also like rum drinks and like tequila as long as I have some training wheels to go with it. Also beer, of course. If you wanna talk scotch with me you should do it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My car! I love the freedom that it represents. If I wanted to, right now I could take off for NYC and there'd be nothing stopping me.

Music, but this goes along with the car. I like driving long distances far more than I should but I need loud music blasting at me.

Friends and family are obvious ones. Probably don't need to expand on these. Let's go with nature and technology for the last two.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why do people do the things they do?

The other day I was preparing dinner and I wasn't paying attention and I sliced the side of my thumb pretty good. It's always weird being reminded that I'm made out of meat.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dinner and drinks with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i think i might have a problem. i was eating a banana in my kitchen while deciding what else to have for lunch and i saw my bottle of tapatio... and i did it. hot sauce on a banana. i ate about half of the banana with it and then put the bottle down and took a bite of hot sauce-less banana and it just wasn't the same.

Also, I like Depeche Mode.
