Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You are far more likely to find me on a mountain or in a museum
than at a bar, though you will find me eating pub food and at music
venues. I value things that make me think. I'd rather see an
interesting documentary about something nerdy like Helvetica than
watch an action movie. I like to make people laugh. I don't know
who to compare my sense of humor to exactly, Monty Python meets
Yes, Minister? It is a bit of a mix of silly and super dry. I need
to spend time in nature to recharge. If I can I will escape to a
mountain somewhere. My last escape was to Patagonia, the one before
that was to Jasper/Banff. Locally somewhere in the Blue Ridge or
the Alleghenies is more likely. I love discussions of practically
anything because I love to learn. The appeal of my work (in basic
research) is largely that it is non-repetitive and gives scope for
learning all the time.
I'm looking for someone who shares my love of nature and loves to
learn and explore, who is open to the possibility of a serious
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend a lot of time doing research, which involves tiny things
you may one day find in phones or other electronics. I dabble in
photography mostly on hiking and backpacking trips. I like to build
and design things in my spare time. A lot of it is electronic and I
used to have a company I ran out of my apartment when I had the
time as a graduate student. I still may go the entrepreneurial
route in the longer term. Currently, I am more in the academic path
though and working in a government lab.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

d) M. Ward, Andrew Bird, Architecture in Helsinki, Jens Lekman,

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.
How does that work? Why is that? How can I do something that will
have an effect?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly, I might still be at work until late. I keep my weekends
fairly work free though. If I am not at work I probably am
unwinding laughing or listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm addicted to hugs. Sad but true.
