My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Been based in Lima since August 2013 for a position w/ an environmental science/policy research organization

I like music, science, nature, fiction, reality, comedy, and people. I'm highly extroverted, and am continually occupied with having a good time while doing work that I think is cool. Adventuring and travelling and raging it up is my jam.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Apart from participating in dance parties, jam sessions, and outrageous travels, I work as a researcher based in Lima (just wrapped up my PhD in Environmental Social Science). I'm broadly interested in sustainable development, and specifically look at how local/indigenous peoples' property rights are affected by/affect conservation policies in the tropics. This is my "main" steez I suppose, but I'm really interested in all sorts of stuff like plants, cosmology, biology, comedy, mongolian throat singing, amazing fictional stories, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm very good at enjoying cooking, but I'd have to leave it to you to determine whether I'm any good at cooking! I like skiing and am pretty good at that too. I like to play with a few musical instruments. I have a ukulele! I also have some evidence that I'm a good teacher in my evaluations.

It's hard to catalogue these sorts of things for all time, so I'm gonna just list stuff IV'd read recentlyish that I liked. I've actually really liked every book I've read recently...

Books/Fiction: The Hunger Games (no shame these books at amazing), Gone Girl (yeh!), Shirley Jackson (Haunting of Hill House), The Icarus Girl!!!, Chimama Ngozi Adichie (Americanah, it was a funny take on the US), White Teeth (how the hell did Zadie Smith have that kind of perspective at 19 or 20?!), Jennifer Eagan (A Visit from the Goon Squad), House of Leaves (you goin be scurred), Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, Anathem, now doing the Baroque Cycle, which is too many pages on The Invention of Science And Money by way of Swashbuckling Pirates!) Foundation (Asimov, though the dude can't write women to save his life), A Song of Ice and Fire (GRRM), The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, David Foster Wallace (INFINITE JEST!), Haruki Murakami (recently read 1Q84), I'm all about my kindle these days. Stuff that I read less recently but still like: Douglas Adams (hitchhiker series), Ursula K. Le Guin.

Books/Nonfiction: Lotsa stuff for work. Too much policy and social science. I dig reading about science, and all things that involve communicating science to the public approachably-like.

Shows: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Firefly, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Archer, Star Trek (TNG/DS9 obvi)

Music: Lately I've been listening to a band called Eastern Blok, and some whacky Soviet proto-techno by a guy called Vyacheslav Mescherin. I went to lotsa jammy and bluegrass shows in Boulder because they're loads of fun, although I listen to that stuff less on my own time. The other day in Boulder I accidentally saw a band called Elephant Wrecking Ball. Didn't know that elephants could slay the trombone like that beforehand!

Also I listen to a lotta podcasts (Savage Love, Radiolab, Invisibilia, This American Life)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I would find it initially tough to be without the internet, sadly!

But all ya need is love. Friends/family, etc., of course. Sentimental response.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about ecosystems/ecology and biology a lot when I'm outside. I think about music constantly. I also think about poverty and ways we can alleviate it. Political and policy dimensions of justice, power, and inequality. Plus the nature of the Universe, and how awesome most people and things are
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't know that any Friday night is typical for me, they're all different! Here's a few recent Fridays at the time of writing: last Friday I was at a wedding in the mountains. The Friday before that I was in Chicago, playing music with some friends. Before that I was in Cambridge, MA at a trivia night. Prior to that I was in Cochabamba, Bolivia, having my goodbye party after three months there.

Editing this a year later, it's obviously outdated, but I'll keep it because it's still pretty right on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't think I have much that's terribly private
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you're interested in meeting up for coffee or a drink! I'll be working a fair amount, complete with some travel in my schedule, but having a good time is always a priority for me so I can make time for fun-having.
