Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Missouri, but I've been living in Portland for
about 8 years. In that time I've cooked professionally at various
restaurants for a few years and then I went back to school to
finish my degree in earth and space sciences. I love science and I
can easily geek out over talking about the formation of the solar
system, the earth and other such topics.
I'm an atheist and a skeptic. This means that if there's no good
evidence for the existence of something (astrology, big foot,
aliens, psychic powers, etc...) then I'm not going to believe it.
They're fun topics to talk about, but I don't take it seriously at
I love soccer and I follow the Timbers, Thorns, and Tottenham
Hotspurs pretty religiously. If the Thorns have a home match, I'm
there. And I go to Timbers matches whenever I can get my hands on
the tickets. I'll watch any soccer that's on TV though; especially
if it gives me the chance to root for whatever team is playing
against Seattle. Unless it's LA- then I just boo both teams.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing science with my life. I currently work full time at an
environmental services lab as a microscopist. I look for nasty
stuff in soil and building material that you don't want to breath
in (asbestos, fiber glass, etc..). I also work as a research
assistant in a meteorite lab at PSU.
I spent my entire undergrad burning the candle at both ends, so I'm
taking a break before applying to PSU for my masters in science
education. My long term goal is to do science outreach and
education for either OMSI or another similar institution.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. I've worked with some of the finer restaurants in PDX, so
I know my way around a kitchen pretty well.
I'm also adept at cracking dirty jokes and double entendres. I'm
kind of a sucker for more risque humor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm consistently told that I'm tall. So I'm assuming that people
notice my height before anything else. Maybe my hair, too? I keep a
pretty neatly trimmed faux-hawk, but when it gets longer, it starts
to look like a mohawk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music- ask me
Books- Carl Sagan, research publications on planetary
Movies/TV- Donnie Darko, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Battlestar
Food- nearly anything; ask me.
This list is short because I wanna maintain some mystery.
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.
I think about a lot of things. It ranges from food and sex to
soccer and sciencey things. Depends on the day to day really.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends at either a bar or someone's house making
food. Friday's are generally pretty low key.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a big crock of duck fat in my fridge that has outlasted all
my relationships. Yes, it's still good and makes for a kick-ass
batch of roasted potatoes.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to talk about soccer and/or science. And even if you
don't, feel free to message me anyways. I am long term minded, but
I'm not looking to quickly jump into anything serious. I prefer to
take things slowly.
Bonus points if you can tell me the two cities from the bonfire
