My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was once a prince of Atlantis, prophet of the end of days, and champion snake wrestler, but that was before they collected my badge and gun, snapped my wand and kicked me out of Hogwarts.

Actual professional mad scientist, bicyclist, student and storyteller. I believe that people should sing more in their daily lives. Sometimes I paint things.

Recently realized I'm a bit of 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.
I'm a third-year PhD student at UCSB, working in Chemical Engineering, and I spend most of my time shamelessly hacking the chemistry of life in pursuit of new and crazy ways to fight cancer.

My research is a full-time job, but one day I plan to graduate for good, after a few more years of education, amateur stand-up, and playing guitar badly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting lost, singing loudly, cooking, haberdashery, and special effects for low-budget horror films. Also, getting lost in unusual places.
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 like to dress nicely, although I don't often get the chance.

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

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 The Three Musketeers Bruno Schulz (who is like Kafka, but less boring) Lord of the Rings Journey to the West Good Omens Swamp Thing

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 a bit of an herb junkie. Most of what I cook is at least slightly Italian, although I've gotten pretty good at chile rellenos. If you know how to make 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
A sense of humor
Taco trucks

I used to think "my computer" and "my phone" fit in this category, but I've learned that they're not always necessities.
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, jokes, the history of astrology, computational linguistics, genetic engineering, and the sun.

I've always wanted to spend a day pretending to be a confused foreign tourist, but never quite go through with it.
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, barbershop singing, and painting.

I once successfully organized myself and three strangers into a barbershop quartet for a few hours on the Italian Riviera. That was a good Friday.

(Honestly, though: I'm often at work. I work hard on a typical Friday so that I have time to spare on the less typical ones)
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) absolutely 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 Welcome to Night Vale and need to talk to someone about Parade Day or the Company Picnic.

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.
