Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nature-loving city-dweller with a kind heart, a love of
socially and environmentally worthwhile tech, a witty sense of
humor, and a thirst for new experiences. Also I'm a huge nerd, so
I'm also something of an old soul. I've been through enough in my
life to have learned that the best way to live life is to learn
from it, roll with the punches, grow as a person, and focus on
appreciating all the positives! I'm almost always cheerful and
don't get upset easily.
I graduated from Brown a few years ago and immediately moved to the
bay area. I've been enjoying every moment since!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
-Doing contract R&D work with a few small renewable energy
system startups while I look for a full time job in
-Looking to do some climate/energy/environment related volunteer
-Taking in as many new experiences as I can. I recently tried
indoor rock climbing and absolutely love it. I'm an outdoorsy
person, but don't at the moment have the means to get out of the
city and hike frequently, so this is a great alternative. But hey,
I'm not complaining: there's a lot to do in the city as well!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a somewhat quiet person. I am definitely an introvert, but I
love meeting new people and spending time with close friends and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Science fiction, mostly, but ya'know, good science fiction.
Books that explore the human condition in the framework of a
science fiction concept. Also some nonfiction. The Moral Animal by
Robert Wright might be the single most personally influential book
I've ever read.
TV: Arrested Development. Better off Ted. Doctor Who. Psych. House.
Daily Show/Colbert Report. Sherlock.
Movies: Similar to my taste in books. Children of Men. District 9.
Batman Begins / Dark Knight / Dark Knight Rises. Serenity. Most
comedies. The occasional drama/sentimental movie. Pretty much
Music: Classic Rock. Modern/Alt Rock. Electronic/Pop under the
Food: I'm not picky. I'll at least try pretty much anything, and
chances are I'll like it. I am trying to make my way towards
vegetarianism though, for ethical/environmental/health reasons.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the universal (friends, family, food, air, water,
shelter, clothing), and in no particular order:
1.) My tennis raquets
2.) A good book (now meaing E-book)
3.) My passport
4.) That excellent cheese from the Civic Center farmer's
5.) Interaction with nature
6.) A towel (bonus points if you get the reference!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All things sustainable; environmentally, socially, and
economically. Or food. Or travel/adventure plans. Or a variety of
cute animals (I really miss my dog). Really, lots of different
stuff. I'm frequently in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Smiling and laughing with a few good friends, hopefully! The
context doesn't really matter. Or, alternatively, recharging at
home with a book/netflix.
