Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up on the central coast in a little town named Arroyo
Grande. I love going home to visit whenever I have the time. I
stayed nearby for my undergraduate education, graduating in
December 2006 from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a B.S. in
Biochemistry. Took a short amount of time off after undergrad to
work and save a little money so I could take a trip out of the
country. Ended up going to Tokyo with my brother and I plan on
traveling quite a bit more now that I have finished graduate
school. I graduated from UCSD with a PhD in Biomedical Sciences May
2013. Currently I am working for a pharmaceutical company doing
cystic fibrosis research and gaining valuable industry experience
while building up the resume.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working to live, not living to work. Also volunteer for Coastal
German Shepherd Rescue every Saturday because I LOVE dogs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess that I am really good at research, which basically means I
am good at problem solving, staying organized, handling failures
(experiments that don't work), and of course it means I am
imaginative/creative. Also, I am not too bad at basketball, frolf,
ping pong, drawing/painting. I wouldn't say that I am really good
at cooking, but I do know how to make more than just mac n' cheese
or a PB and J sandwich.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea, when my hair was long it was probably that, but now
I'm not really sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love calvin and hobbes comics (ok, so not really a book but they
kick so much butt). Most of the books that I've read I have
enjoyed, recently have delved into A Game of Thrones and can't wait
for the next book.
Favorite movies include: The Boondock Saints, The Big Lebowski,
Marley and Me, Joe Dirt, Anchorman, The Shawshank Redemption, Bolt,
pretty much every Miyazaki film and there are many more.
Music wise I'll listen to pretty much anything. Some favorites
would be: Little River Band, Bob Marley, Clarence Bekker, Billy
Joel, Stevie Wonder, Rufio, Saves the Day, Cat Stevens, CCR,
Juanes, Frankie J, Offspring, Weezer, Green Day, The Get Up Kids,
Flight of the Conchords, Stephen Lynch and there are a bunch of
others that I can't think of right now.
Of course, since I'm mexican I love mexican food. I also enjoy
Italian food and really enjoy Thai food as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order
3. a dog (although I guess a dog should go under family as well,
but I really love dogs)
4. mental stimulation (I go crazy when I have nothing to do for an
extended amount of time, talking days not hours here)
5. humor (the world would be a pretty crummy place without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When will I finally be able to adopt my first GS.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing, watching a movie, cooking a bomb meal and/or reading. Not
into the bar or the club scene. Never was, never will be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I went to a silks class with a friend. All the people attending the
class were women except me. It ended up being really fun though and
it was neat watching the more experienced people who reminded me of
the crique du soleil performers.
