My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Actual mad scientist, bicyclist, grad student, storyteller, and occasional troublemaker. I believe that people should sing more in their daily lives. Sometimes I paint things.

Originally from San Francisco, but I'm starting to get the hang of the South coast (and there's something to be said for biking on flat roads).

I suppose I'm here to meet people of all sorts, and that includes new friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a second-year PhD student at UCSB, working in Chemical Engineering, and spending 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, performance storytelling, cooking, haberdashery, and special effects for low-budget horror films.

I've been told I'm something of a chameleon, which might explain why I keep doing alright in places I never thought I belonged.
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 get comments on what I wear, on the rare occasions when I get to dress nicely—I've made some of my own clothing and hats.

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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Television: House of Cards, Firefly, Arrested Development, Community, Game of Thrones, Sherlock
...and I'm looking for some new favorites while I wait for any of these to return to air.

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

Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman, Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott or Bruno Schulz (who is like Kafka, but less boring). Sandman, Lord of the Rings, Journey to the West, Good Omens, and any comics involving John Constantine.

Music: Billy Joel, Queen, Aerosmith, Simon and Garfunkel, Earth Wind & Fire, Toto... I might be stuck in the wrong decade here. Also a big fan of Victorian-era comedic opera.

Food: Anything with enough flavor—I'm a bit of an herb junkie. Most of what I cook is at least slightly Italian. 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
My bicycle
A sense of humor
Notebooks
Antojitos
Conversation

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 have yet to find someone with the same dream to join me in this.
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 usually 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 animals, not food) terrifying.

I also tend to get far more emotional about comics and cartoons than novels and movies.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got opinions on humor theory, artisanal cheeses, costume construction, puzzle hunts, dinosaurs, the Roman senate, or something else equally worthwhile.

You'd like help running a large-scale prank or installing art where it doesn't belong.

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 find the best taco truck in Santa Barbara (I've been searching, but to no avail).

You're an original and talkative person.
