Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Portland for a job at Intel. I received my PhD
studying Mechanical Engineering - fluids specifically; ask me about
it if you're curious! My new job can be quite time intensive at
times, but I am sure I can make time for someone special. So, only
hit me up if you're special, okay ;).
I try to keep busy even besides work. I often find myself wandering
the city finding new restaurants and coffee shops. In Tucson I was
taking a Kung FU class which I enjoyed a lot. We did meditation,
breathing work and of course non-violent self defense. Leaving
Tucson meant I had to leave that :( . For now I have been taking
yoga and I may have found a place I like. Oh, and often I take on
random hobbies. For instance I recently built a homemade 'laptop'
(pretty nerdy I know). Unfortunately, I would usually bring it with
me when I drove to coffee shops which I don't do much here in
Portland (hard to pass up a walk on a nice day); so I'm stuck with
my sleek futuristic (not as powerful / cool) work laptop :). Ask me
about it if you think you might have some nerdy-ness in you (I do
have a youtube video which is fun).
Lets see, what else: I have a cat (Abby) and she is quite great.
Some people say she has some attributes of a dog (like the
companionship and licking), but she still has a bit of an
independent streak! We did drive all the way from Tucson to
Portland together, and it was quite the exciting drive!
That's it for now. I look forward to hearing from you. If it is
during the week and I'm on call I might not reply immediately, but

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You mean besides the fact that I'm gorgeous ;) !
My friend once told me that the way my eyes react while talking to
someone looks as though I am always analyzing (probably quite true)
and this can be a bit intimidating. I have been told I have nice

I read random non-fiction books. Right now I'm reading "Physics of
the future" and I just read "The Youth Pill". As for fiction,
usually random, but I like Time Travel Sci-Fi books these days. I
am think my favorite genre might actually be Hard Sci-Fi, but I
recently read Crime and Punishment and loved it.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
After a long week of waking up early for work, it seems I might
just be at home watching something on my new addition - Amazon
Prime. I'm always down for doing something if the situation arises
though of course! !
