Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
San Francisco→Jurassic Park→ RI→SB

Professional mad scientist, amateur hat-maker, performance storyteller. Fan of bicycles, fine art, and intersectional feminism. I believe that people should sing more in their daily lives.

Ethically, a Kantian logician—I find myself compelled to solve puzzles, regardless of their utility.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Graduate researcher at UCSB, in the endless quest for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. My work involves improving the theory behind directed molecular evolution.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Haberdashery, gumption, balderdash, speed-painting, shenanigans, lab pipetting, barbershop harmonies, and drinking fancy wines.

I would love to include "echolocation" but it turns out that's really difficult to learn.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get a surprising number of compliments on my eyebrows. I also own a lot of colorful clothing.

Once I grew sideburns shaped like lightning bolts, but had to let them go when they became the only thing anyone wanted to talk to me about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Time to try out tags!

Television: House of Cards Firefly Arrested Development Community Game of Thrones Sherlock
...and when none of these are on air, I watch a lot of things I'm less proud of.

Radio: Welcome to Night Vale, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me The Moth

Books: Sandman Shakespeare Dumas Bruno Schulz (who is like Kafka, but less boring) Tolkien Journey to the West Good Omens

Music: Billy Joel Queen Aerosmith Simon & Garfunkel Earth Wind & Fire Gilbert and Sullivan Give me 1970's, or give me 1870's...

Movies: The Princess Bride Brazil Guardians of the Galaxy Breakfast at Tiffany's Porco Rosso

Food: Anything with enough flavor—I'm an herb junkie. Most of what I know how to cook is Italian, Mexican, or Japanese. If you know how to make your own tamales, please be my friend.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Farmer's markets
Transit
A sense of humor
Notebooks
Food trucks
Conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Impressionist art, saving the world, humor theory, the history of astrology, computational linguistics, genetic engineering, whether I'd be any good as a professional spy, and the sun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recently, I've been trying a bit to get back into guerilla art, swing dancing, and painting.

I once successfully convinced three strangers to sing in harmony for a few hours on the Italian Riviera. That was a good Friday.

(Honestly, though: I'm usually in lab. I work hard on a typical weekend so that I can take time to spare when I want to)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find lobsters (as live animals, not food) terrifying.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like help running a large-scale prank or installing art where it doesn't belong.

You've got opinions on humor theory, artisanal cheeses, costume construction, puzzle hunts, dinosaurs, the Roman senate, or something else equally worthwhile.

You listen to Night Vale and need to talk to someone about Parade Day or the Company Picnic. (Update: hmm, Company Picnic is a bit out of date, but still a great episode)

You need advice on sneaking into the corporate offices of a major soy sauce manufacturer (disclaimer: I've only done this once, and it might have been mostly luck).

You know how to make tamales. Seriously, I need someone to teach me this extremely useful life skill.

You're an original and talkative person.
