My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a graduate student at the University of Oregon. In my free time, I like to go running. A lot. Following the philosophy of one of my friends in undergrad, I do a lot of races, because there's nothing better to motivate you than thinking "well I mean... I already paid for it..." I ran 3 marathons this year (Whidby Island, Eugene, and Seattle), and I'm training for Fort Worth, TX in March.

I also like hiking, and I've been doing my best to branch out and explore some of the surrounding areas. Still, I have a soft spot in my heart for Spencer's Butte.

I'm fairly close with my family, and I go back home (Seattle) about once a month. When I was a kid, I always said I wanted to grow up to be my dad. He makes dad jokes an art form.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grad student in a research science, and I teach a class once a week at a community college in Salem. I'd either like to continue on in academia or become a teacher, but I figure I've got time to figure that out. I also volunteer a lot at the Dining Room.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, listening, telling stories, and seamlessly inserting lyrics into casual conversation.

I also have a few stupid human tricks, but I guess we'll leave those as a surprise for now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I laugh at my own jokes... a lot. But hey, at least someone's laughing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I'm a huge nerd for punk, but I also love blues, jazz, motown, hip hop, and classic rock. I used to be a music snob, then I realized that it's pointless. Turns out I like pop and even some country. That said, my favorite bands are Shook Ones, Dag Nasty, Cro-Mags, Minor Threat, Bane, Bikini Kill, Leatherface, My Bloody Valentine, Joy Division, Funkadelic, Wu Tang Clan, Pharoahe Monch, AC/DC, and The Stooges.

Books: If spending a Sunday afternoon reading at a coffee shop seems romantic to you, then I think we'll get along. My absolute favorite authors are Cormac McCarthy, J.D. Salinger, John Steinbeck, Dostoyevsky, and Herman Hesse. If that makes me sound too serious, I also love David Sedaris.

Shows: 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Party Down, The Office, Freaks and Geeks, Community, The Daily Show, Modern Family, Bob's Burgers, and Workaholics.

Movies: I love going to the Bijou, and lately I've been trying to go as often as possible. If it's gritty, incredibly emotional, or can make me laugh out loud, chances are I'll like it. On the other end of the spectrum, I saw Bad Boys II three times in the theater.

Food: Mexican or Italian, but I'm also quite fond of Thai, Japanese, Mediterranean, and Southern food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Laughter and lots of it
2. Easy access to nature
3. A good book in my backpack
4. A blackboard or white board
5. Roommates - living alone gets boring
6. Running trails
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Puns. Really really bad puns.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I make it a point to go out and do something most Friday and Saturday nights. Usually that means going to a concert or hanging around downtown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whenever I'm alone in an elevator, I dance.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like nerding out over pretty much anything. You like to joke around a lot, and you don't take yourself too seriously. You don't mind someone with a snarky sense of humor. Or you just really like hiking and want someone to explore the area with. You should know right now that I will get out of breath talking while hiking or running, and so everything I say will sound super urgent. In fact... I should just make that a feature, not a fault. I will only say urgent things while hiking or running.
