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

San Francisco→Rhode Island→Jurassic Park→Santa Barbara
ENTP something something "partner in crime" cliché mumble etc.
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 improving the theory behind statistical physics of directed molecular evolution (or: using spreadsheets to invent new cancer drugs).

Also: art, 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.
Haberdashery, gumption, balderdash, speed-painting, shenanigans, lab pipetting, barbershop harmonies, analyzing algorithmic run-time over non-traditional data structures, and drinking fancy alcohols.

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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Television: Firefly, Arrested Development, Community, Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, Sherlock (and since none of my favorite shows are on the air right now, I'm taking suggestions)
(currently watching: Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Radio: Welcome to Night Vale, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, The Moth
(currently listening: that NPR show where they make Jonathan Coulton sing gibberish)

Books: Shakespeare, Dumas, Wu Cheng'en, Bruno Schulz (who is like Kafka, but far less boring), Tolkien, Gaiman, Yolen, Asimov, Lloyd Alexander, Ursula K. Leguin
(currently reading: China Mieville, Margaret Atwood)

Music: Billy Joel, Queen, Aerosmith, Simon & Garfunkel, Earth Wind & Fire, Gilbert and Sullivan, Mostly 1970s and 1870s...

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

Food: Somebody please teach me how to make tamales.
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?
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, though after everyone else goes home I'm blasting something fun on the lab radio. I work hard on a typical weekend so that I can take time off when I want to)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Live lobsters inexplicably 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 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 know how to make tamales. Seriously, I need someone to teach me this important life skill.

You have strong opinions on something unusual and would like to explain them to someone.
