Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello and thank you for taking a moment to view my profile.
I am a full time student, tutor, and supplemental college
instructor. I am currently preparing to transfer to Monmouth
College to continue my studies focusing on Chemistry with hopes of
going on to my PhD. I was recently named as an All Illinois
Academic Scholar and nominated to the national level. I am the type
of person who craves new information, ideas, and interesting
perspectives. As a result, I am very open minded.
I enjoy reading, cooking, movies, music, fishing, swimming,
repairing things, and helping people.
I am a very honest person by nature. I don't enjoy dealing with
people who habitually lie and I appreciate others who are honest as
well. I feel it's important to be respectful, appreciative, and
honest to all of life.
I've been single for awhile now and I'm interested in meeting
someone to share my life with. Please feel free to contact
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I am focused on attaining my Ph.D. My next step after
that will be Chemistry research. I inherently want to help people.
It's in my nature, and I would love to discover a new way to do so
through my research.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Understanding complex topics and teaching the concepts to others. I
can also fix most things I touch.

Right now I'm reading, "Thinking Fast and Slow." I am really
enjoying it. However, one of my all time favorites has been
Douglass Adams, "Hitch Hicker's Guide to the Universe."
As for television, I try and keep up with: The Walking Dead, House
of Cards, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and Dexter.
I am interested in just about all music. I really don't hate much
Food, I love to cook - so this is another one that I'm very
flexible on. However, if I had to pick one thing; it would probably
be Pizza. I can make a pretty awesome home made Chicago Style Deep
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good bed
The warmth provided by love.
And hopefully, one day, you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My studies at the moment. I currently take 4 classes and work as a
supplemental instructor in 5. So, my thoughts are primarily on my
I love philosophy and spend a fair amount of time contemplating our
existence, our place in the universe, our consciousness, and our
A concept I've been reading a lot about lately is the long term
evolution of our consciousness. We self create our realities
through the selective interpretation of the information that our
senses not only pick up, but the information our minds don't
immediately censor out. You see, we perceive a far greater amount
of information then we realize. We have evolved to naturally filter
in the range of 90% of our perception out before it is even
promoted to consciousness. This process is believe to be one that
we have gradually evolved. If our minds, our consciousness, and the
way we filter information have evolved that means our ancestors
perceived the world differently. This is, of course, all
conjecture; however, it intrigues me. (For further reading Julian
Jaynes' book "The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the
Bicameral Mind" (1976))
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really know many people in the area socially. So I rarely
go out. I would love to go out if I had someone to be with. I guess
it's a chicken or egg situation. I need to go out to meet people,
but I dislike going out without people I know. haha.... At any
rate, currently my Friday nights consist of reading, thinking, and

You should message me if you would like to talk. No pressure. I am
rather shy, so don't hesitate to make the first move. I'm happy to
talk once the ice is broken. Perhaps one day I will defeat my
hesitation. For now, feel free to help me out ;)
