My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy spending my days investigating problems, trying new ideas, helping others achieve, mixing in new technologies/techniques to better current practices, and telling bad jokes related to the functions of the human body. I'm both an instructor (anatomy, hence the bad jokes) and a faculty developer, which means I'm highly over-scheduled, but I can take long weekends. I'm becoming a pro at rolling past the little annoyances; finding the good in most everything, no matter how hard; and laughing at myself when I screw something simple up.

Some factoids::
- usually play at least 4 soccer games a week
- wish I got to backpack and scuba dive more, but have a hard time finding people who can go with me
- I hate shopping, except at flea markets & REI
- I have season tickets for the SJ Earthquakes and ACT
- I'm sometimes too straightforward, which means I'm also not easily offended
- can bake kick-ass brownies and peanut butter cookies
- my cat thinks she owns the house
- school breaks are for traveling - been to 20-something countries so far (prefer ones with poor internet access)
- newest "hobby" is wine tasting, so my collection is growing
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, traveling, running around chasing people with a ball.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Explaining things; seeming organized when I'm really not; not worrying if I get lost. Massages.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
(Aren't I the wrong person to be answering this question?)

Apparently, you can hear me laughing all the way down the hall. I've had students on the first day of class tell me "so you're the one with the laugh", good to be famous for something!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm typically reading biology or education related books, thankfully this works for both entertainment, interest, and work. The three authors who's books I always buy when they first come out are Robert Sapolsky, Jared Diamond, and Richard Dawkins. I also read historical accounts on countries that I'm visiting soon/just visited.

I'm more of a Netflix fan than a TV viewer; haven't had cable for years. Netflix thinks I like cerebral dramas and romantic comedies, which seems to be right.

For music I tend to like individual songs, especially since that is the way they are purchased these days . . . my usual pandora station is Airborne Toxic Event or Empire of the Sun, but I'm sometimes in the mood for the "Bon Jovi" one. In the car, NPR is usually on.

I love all food except shellfish. Cooking is a joy when I have time to experiment, as is trying new restaurants. I get addicted to getting the perfect recipe for a dish - I've tried about 20 different mac&cheese recipes but haven't found the perfect variation yet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, family, a book, soccer, sunshine and green, 8 hours of sleep. (All, except the sleeping) are highly supported by caffeine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work and trip planning. How I wish I didn't have to work so much so that I could go on more trips.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Don't really have a typical one - movies, having dinner with friends, playing soccer, at the theater, getting ready for Saturday activities. (Do I dare admit that I spend a few grading homework?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I went to a New Kids on the Block concert when I was in 8th grade; my walls were plastered with posters.
