I'd describe myself as a nerd. I love sci-fi shows and movies (Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, etc) and am a pretty avid gamer.
I love animals, and I'm currently pursuing, but struggling, to find a position as a zookeeper working with exotic animals. I currently have two cats, four snakes (three corn snakes and a ball python), and a bearded dragon. Previously I've worked as a lab technician in research labs at Penn State harvesting recombinant ovine protein from transformed bacterial cells, and also testing bird tissue samples for avian viral diseases using diagnostic tests (sounds more complicated than it is, lol, but kudos if you understood that sentence or it interested you)
I'm shy and tend to be pretty quiet and reserved, but I actually do love conversation when someone wants to talk about something. I enjoy making people laugh and tend to have a sarcastic sense of humor (I'll always throw in a one-liner if I get a good opening), but not in a cruel way. I try not to take myself too seriously, and enjoy being silly with people.

Shows- Breaking Bad, MST3K, The Walking Dead, The Killing, Game of Thrones, VEEP, Newsroom, House MD, Arrested Development, House of Cards
Music- A lot, mainly rock, but pretty much anything but modern country and rap. Some favorites: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, White Stripes, Pink Floyd, Robert Johnson, Mumford & Sons, Frank Zappa, Rush, etc. etc.
