My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a midwesterner at heart, but have lived everywhere from Detroit, Chicago, and Pittsburgh, to Seattle and Orange County. I just moved to DC, and I'm excited to see what DC will bring.

I do research, and that often means I can have a pretty analytical perspective on the world.

I like to hike, most especially the day hike to a scenic vista. I've been fortunate enough to travel, and have explored parts of Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia (Australia next??). Closer to home, I run, occasionally marathons, but usually shorter races. And I like to bike, kayak, boulder, backpack, etc.

Music makes me happy, particularly making it. I once played in band (serious enough to have a MySpace page!), and am trying to learn more composition. I'm perhaps still a starry-eyed dreamer at heart, and there's nothing I enjoy more than bringing big, crazy projects to life, whether they involve zombies or robo-dancers. I'm fiercely loyal and most attracted to giving, knowledgeable, and outdoorsy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Inventing the future. Teaching. More precisely, I spend about 80% of my time on research, 80% of my time teaching, and 40% of my time on service.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making crazy ideas happen.

I once organized a bunch of engineering grad students into doing a musical.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
grabbing a drink, recovering from the week, making plans for weekend adventures, or maybe a late night run

I'm a terrible swimmer. Like, completely terrible.
