I'm a 27 year old guy who just finished up my PhD in Organic Chemistry at Colorado-Boulder. I really don't conform to the stereotypes of a science nerd though. I'm social, love doing and learning new things and meeting new people. This is preferably done with the aid of a nice, warm whiskey blanket on the weekends.
It was a great experience out in Boulder but I was ready to get back to NorCal. I recently accepted a really great job offer from a "big, evil energy conglomerate" in the Bay Area but I'd like to think that I'm working to help them improve that public perception.
In my free time I'm on soccer and basketball teams and at the end of a long day I'll usually drink a beer and watch the Daily Show. I try to work out as often as I can now that I'm done with life-sucking grad school. I'm also thinking about teaching myself to cook... I'm a chemist, so I'm hoping the skills translate well (probably not though). I played football in college and I tend to spend part of my Sundays watching my beloved Packers somewhere. I'll tolerate regular season baseball but I cheer for the Giants in October. I do love going to games when it's $9 beer night though.
Grammar, science literacy, and intelligence are cool.
Have a wonderful day!
