Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The basics: Jersey (home) - Boston (college) - Chicago (grad
school) - SF (grown-up...here for almost 3 years)
I went to school for a really, really long time so now I'm ready to
reap the rewards. Most of my friends in SF are in tech and/or
design and for a lot of them, their work and home/social life blend
into each other a lot. I'm a scientist at a biotech startup so,
luckily, bring the lab home is not an option. I like being able to
separate my work and home lives and I've tried to prioritize
filling in my iCal with awesome Bay Area activities.
Things that are fun to me:
Exploring the never ending supply of Bay Area restaurants, bars,
Outdoorsy things - Sailing, skiing, hiking, shucking oysters,
Hanging out with great friends in close proximity to food and
Travel and exploring (next up - Peru!)
Things that are not fun to me:
Staying at home
I'm one of those crazy foodies that likes going to all the hot, new
places opening up as well as the awesome, old-school standbys. The
scientist in me is also really into record-keeping so I like
checking in to fb. Checking in to okc forces me to update my
profile :) swapsalot's last fancy meal was: a 13 course truffle
tasting menu. Mmmm

I love food more than anything else and I spend the majority of my
time thinking about new restaurants or recipes. My favorite things
include Off the Grid and Saturday mornings at the Ferry Building.
If you've lived in SF for even a little while, I'm sure you've
already come across someone like me many times over.
Addicted to watching TV online...favorites include Top Chef, The
Daily Show, House of Cards, West Wing, Breaking Bad, Homeland, and
I really miss the annual International Film Festival in Chicago.
The Found Footage Festival is pretty awesome.
