My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First of all, this website feels a lot like online shopping for a used car, except that the used cars are also trying to sell themselves, and can reject offers from other used cars. But, it could lead to something real, so it's worth embracing.

I'm looking for a strong-willed, intelligent, cheerful, active woman. If my friends were describing me they would probably mention my sense of humor, my dependability, and the fact that I am up for anything. I prefer small groups of people but big parties are fun too. Often deep in thought, but generally a light-hearted person. I love applying pragmatism to problems and figuring things out. I live for the those rare conversations that go deep into the night, where you make connections across art and culture and science, and get down to the essence of things.

Activities include playing piano, bass, and guitar, listening to music, live music (where most of my money goes), walks and hiking, biking, tennis, trying to see all of the great movies, bar trivia, museums, lying in the grass and staring at clouds, exploring neighborhoods, cards and board games, and hanging out on porches and balconies. Most of all just generally exploring St. Louis and finding all the cool things to do and see. Also I have a book of every Beatles song with words and chords, so guitar sing-a-longs are a frequent past time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an environmental scientist, which means that I do operations and maintenance on a soil vapor extraction system that pulls pollutants out of the ground. It's great - I work outside every day and drive a pickup truck and work with tools - every boy's dream. Eventually I would like to be in a position where I can promote clean energy and sustainable practices. I briefly taught high school chemistry, and could go back to education one day. Outside of my job I love making music. I desperately want to start a ska and/or funk band.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Guessing the puzzle on Wheel of Fortune after most of the letters are up, and whistling. Also trivia. One day I will be a Jeopardy champion, hopefully while Alex Trebek is still hosting.

Nonfiction: The Dragons of Eden by Carl Sagan, The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, Language of the Land by James Stephenson, Wilderness and the American Mind by Roderick Frazier Nash, and Christ Stopped at Eboli by Carlo Levi. I love a debauchery-filled autobiography, especially Keith Richards and Dr. John's, and good essay collections, especially David Foster Wallace stuff and Pulphead by John Jeremiah Sullivan, who is the heir to DFW's throne.

Fiction: Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. So many more

Plays: I used to live near Chicago, so basically anything at Steppenwolf or the Goodman, and specifically God of Carnage, Art, Killer Joe, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I haven't been to a play in St. Louis yet, but I hear good things.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My piano, a good book, showers, light cotton fabrics, lunch, a deck of cards, patios, and comedy. Ok, eight things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How lucky we are to even exist on this beautiful planet with oxygen and abundant liquid water, whether I should buy a house or keep renting, if Paul Newman's eyes are the purest blue in the universe, and many other deep philosophical questions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a party with friends, a bar, a concert, a movie, or at home with a vague feeling I'm being lame, but not really caring because I'm reading a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once spent $5000 to attend a seminar on reincarnation. But what the hell, you only live once.
