My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

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, halfway to a PhD in Chemical Engineering. My work involves the theory behind statistical physics of directed molecular evolution (or: using spreadsheets to invent new cancer drugs).

Also: drawing, dance, number puzzles, cooking, travel, video games, wine & cheese parties.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Speed-painting, gumption, barbershop harmonies, balderdash, losing at board games, lab pipetting, wine tasting, and analyzing algorithmic run-time over non-traditional data structures.

Not echolocation, because 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!
My eyebrows, which I've received more compliments on than I ever expected. Alternately, my unusually-colorful wardrobe.

Once I grew sideburns shaped like lightning bolts, but had to let them go when they became the only thing anyone wanted to talk about.

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
Food trucks

(I survive pretty well without a phone or computer, but notebooks are important)
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, how to become 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?
Never in the same place twice (unless it's my lab). Recently, I've been trying a bit to get back into guerilla art, swing dancing, and figure painting.

(Honestly, though: I'm usually doing experiments, but maybe having some fun with the lab radio. I work hard on a typical weekend so that I can take arbitrary time off)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lobsters (the animal, not the food) terrify me.
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, historical reenactment, demographic bias in wikipedia editors, or something else equally important.

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