Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some fun facts about me:
-Love to travel, I've been to London, Japan, and Australia.
Recently came back from a Eurotrip starting in Naples and taking
trains all the way up to Geneva via Rome and Milan. Have plans for
checking out South Korea and Singapore with my old high school
-NPR listener, Morning Edition is a must on the commute to work and
I'm starting to get into Planet Money now too.
-Moved from the east coast 10 years ago, so I have east coast
sensibility with Cali optimism
-Can cook a mean spicy tofu dish!
What I'm looking for in a great match is someone that can enjoy
going out and about in town but just as comfortable staying in
watching a great movie or episode of Aaron Sorkin's newest show,
The Newsroom. I definitely enjoy a great conversation and it can
range from the best movie of all time (High Fidelity, by the
way...) to which way to vote on Props. Now, I know politics can be
a touchy subject, but it's one that at least my partner will have a
real concern for regardless of which way she votes.
I try to live my life by these 5 principles:
1. Keeping an open mind
2. Try to do some good in the world
3. Keep learning new things
4. Say what I mean
5. Don't be afraid of failure
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a chemist working in a great company that researches renewable
materials. Plus having loads of fun while wearing a lab coat at the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...giving my partner her autonomy. I think it's really important
that in a relationship to give each other enough space. Although,
I'm totally there for my partner when we're together, I know it's
still important to maintain a sense of independence to hang out
with our own friends or have time for self reflection.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. My road bike
3. Like most people, my smartphone (never get lost with it!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What it would be like to be my own boss.
I have lots of great ideas that at some point in the future I want
to flesh out and develop. It's just so much more satisfying when
you know your toil and sweat go towards something that is more
personal to you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about with friends and coworkers trying a new restaurant
and then grabbing a drink at our favorite watering hole.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will admit, some of Katy Perry's stuff is pretty catchy :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy conversation ranging from the intellectual to the
quirkier side of life. We can talk about how to improve the
environment one minute then go off on a tangent about what's the
best whiskey out there. My favorite is a single malt that's really
smokey. If we meet up, I'll be sure to share it with you!
