Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to stomp on dry leaves. That crunch is just so satisfying!
(Don't worry, I won't do it to the point of annoyance)
I'm originally from the midwest -- moved here 10 years ago for grad
school. I like it here so much, I think I'll stay.
I'm in decent shape, I try to eat healthy, although I'm happy to
indulge on occasion.
I like to learn about the world. I'm curious about everything - so
I like to push buttons and flip switches just to see what happens.
I like to take things apart and see how they work - although I try
not to do this with things that I that I care too much about. (Hey!
- I can get them back together 50% of the time!)
I have a practical and logical default state of mind but that
doesn't mean I can't goof off with the best of them!
I'm someone who can give a business presentation on Friday, and
then on Saturday will still take a running start and leap onto the
back of the grocery cart, riding it as far as possible through the
parking lot. Fun can be found in the small moments.
Looking for a best friend, a partner -- someone to share all of
life's moments. Big or small, tragic or triumphant.
Love, respect, and above all kindness.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creating something new. Thinking about DNA sequence.
I love to discover new music - then when I hear it on the radio 6
months later, I feel just a tiny bit proud of myself (I'm not a
total music snob, i swear). I can often be found going to see live
There is a slight shade of green on my thumb - I have a number of
plants around the house and I think it's fun to watch them grow.
For the most part I'm able to keep them happy and healthy.
I like to keep up with the latest technology.
I like to check out the farmers market on the weekend - can you
ever have too many cherry tomatoes? Also, white peaches are rocking
my taste buds right now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Improvising when the correct tools or parts are unavailable
- Learning stuff on-the-fly
- Dealing with technology
- Trying out new recipes for never before attempted dishes
- Crossword puzzles (ok, I'm not great but trying to get better) --
this is something that is actually a lot of fun to do with someone

I grew up with a lot of mid-90s alternative rock, (and I still have
a soft spot in my heart for bands like the Counting Crows), but I
also love to find more recent indie type stuff: Chvrches, Beirut,
The Tallest Man on Earth

For books and movies:
I'm really into stories that paint a picture of a society or world
that is different than this one. That different thing could be
something subtle -- a small quirk in the otherwise normal society
-- or something "out of this world".
I like something funny but well written - Modern Family etc... Not
a fan of crime dramas - there is enough tragedy in the real world.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beyond the basics for survival and family/friends, I'm not too
needy. I guess I'd say music and a creative outlet are also very
important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world's future
