My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Grew up in Eugene, Oregon amidst hippies and loggers. Both have influenced me. Spent my college years in Portland, and now have wound up in the Bay Area for graduate school, though am also spending a fair amount of time in the rainforests of Costa Rica.

I am halfway through a ph.d. program at stanford for ecology and evolution. Needless to say I love biology and the intricacies of Earth's life. I also really like languages, though I don't think I'm particularly good at learning them.

My favorite activities include hiking and camping. I'll take pretty much any excuse to spend sometime outdoors. Partially it's just nice to get out of the city and have some time to reflect about all the things that are really important in life.

People have described me as thoughtful. I generally trend towards the introverted side of the personality spectrum. My humor is generally sarcastic, but doesn't come out until people get to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to spend as much time galavanting around the tropics of Costa Rica as possible, making friends with various amphibians and reptiles--less the cute fuzzy things on account of the rabies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sense of direction. I haven't gotten lost and died in the wilderness once.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
Dharma bums. Jack Kerouac. One of the few books i've read repeatedly. Wouldn't exactly say that it changes my life everytime I read it, but something close to that.

The Glass Bead Game. Herman Hesse. This is one of those dreadfully boring books that never the less left an impression.

The Huainanzi. You shouldn't ask... but if you must know it's a syncretic Daoist text from ~200 bc, attempting to amass all important knowledge at the time from how the universe began, to how seasons work, to how one should rule a state. Good times... no, seriously!

Shows: Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones,

Music: Metric, Philip Glass (Metamorphosis), any of whatever is on the top 40 pop songs (my guilty pleasure is trashy pop music)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
--Forests
--Clouds (growing up in Oregon you learn to appreciate the myriad shades of grey that clouds can take, and how beautiful they can be)
--Friends
--Cooking (cooking with friends is even better)
--Physical activity (I practice capoeira, which is awesome, dabbled in boxing, and run pretty frequently.)
--Plants. I have an absurd collection of plants that people have given me over the years. Somehow I seem to be good at keeping them alive so they just keep accumulating.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be more awesome.
Short term goal is running a marathon (just completed a half, so a full one is only two of those and therefore easy right...?)

Long term goals include bringing either a mammoth, wholly rhinoceros, or ground sloth back to life through the magic of cloning. And/Or developing and marketing GFP houseplants to ravers. Whichever comes first...
