Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello Bay Area!
I'm a 29 year old guy who finished up a PhD in Organic Chemistry at
Colorado a few years ago. 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 bourbon blanket on the weekends.
It was a great experience out in Boulder but I was ready to get
back to NorCal. I work at 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 flag football, volleyball and basketball
teams and at the end of a long weekday I'll usually catch Jeopardy
and watch a doc on Netfilx. 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 can appreciate regular season baseball but
I totally hop on that bandwagon and cheer for the Giants come
October. I do love going to games when it's $9 beer night
Grammar, science literacy, and intelligence are cool.
Have a wonderful day!

Before people get to know me, I am pretty much always stereotyped
as a "dumb jock". I kinda like that. I've been told on numerous
occasions that I'm the dumbest smart guy that person knows. That's
a good thing, right??

I honestly don't even know where to start. I'm always down for good

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My mom. I'm an only child of a single parent. We have a really
unique, open relationship that I wouldn't give up for
2. My friends. They're freakin great.
3. Soap. Come on guys. If this one's not on your list, you're
4. Warm, moist chocolate chip cookies.
5. Jon Stewart. He needs to run for office.
6. Documentaries on Netflix. I'm all about 'em.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. The origins of the Universe.
2. Synthetic Organic Chemistry
3. The negative influence of religions on society
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I bet there's a whiskey diet in my hand. Yes, I said diet.
Otherwise it will go straight to my hips. I've got to keep my
dainty figure. I get so many dirty looks when I order these for
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have 4 national champion roller skaters in my family... That's
just like ice skating, but with wheels. My grandma was even the
Chief National Tabulator for the Roller Skating Federation of
America... Rumor has it that there are pictures of me in skating
outfits when I was younger. If you're lucky, I might even let you
