I love to fish and hike, and I spend a couple of hours watching pro
football on Sundays during the fall (I bleed green and gold). I
like to listen to local bands at the bars, and the Alamo Drafthouse
cinemas are pretty much what I imagine heaven to be like. When I'm
not watching movies at the theater, there's a good chance I'll be
watching them at home. I love films of all sorts. However, I'm not
a couch potato, and I hate keeping a regular schedule.
I used to love long distance running and competing in triathlons,
but injuries and a lack of free time during the school year have
held me back lately. I'm trying to get back into the swing of
things. If you're the type who likes to run a 10 miler every now
and again, maybe you can get my butt in gear. I just received my
degree so now I've got no excuse. I didn't run the Boston Marathon
when I qualified a while back so I've been toying with the idea of
getting back into marathon shape. (update: tri training
I'll eat anything and everything. You kinda have to treat me like a
golden retriever-- if it's not meant to be chewed on, you should
keep it out of my reach. And I'll behave if you bribe me with food.
If you like to go out to eat (or cook), we'll get along just fine.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from Northwestern with a degree in pure math, and until
recently I was in the mathematics PhD program at UT. I decided to
leave with my master's. Now I tutor and have time to do non-math
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. Maybe my blue eyes? Or maybe my third arm? Nah,
definitely my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I can't choose a favorite anything.
Books: the classics
TV: stuff on HBO and Showtime, Peep Show, Misfits, Firefly
Music: 90's stuff, alternative, grunge, plenty of other music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
food, movies, food, politics, food, my job, food, where I'd like to
travel, and food. It's good that I have an excellent metabolism.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually drinking beer with my roommate, watching a movie with
friends, or wishing that my friends from high school would suddenly
appear so that we could bowl. More people should like bowling....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I drank a cosmo once. I kinda liked it.
You should message me if
I might not be using this much longer....
