My self-summary
I'd say that for an engineering grad student, I'm fairly well-rounded. I get off on understanding the world around me; not just the experiments I do in the lab, but every aspect of the natural world, the people around me, and the society in we live in. My main satisfaction in life comes from understanding the "how" and the "why" of things.

I've been keeping pretty active throughout grad school. I've learned to white water kayak, climbed some 14ers in Colorado, skied the Birkebeiner, and biked a century. The last year or so I've sort of mellowed out and done more low key activities like snowshoeing and canoe camping.

I value my close friendships above pretty much everything else, and I really like people that I can just be myself around.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm most of the way through a PhD in nuclear engineering, and trying to make the best of my years in grad school by keeping a good work-life balance.
I’m really good at
Teaching.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: mostly sci-fi or historical fiction, plus some assorted non-fiction. I'm in a book club that meets weekly, and we pretty much cover the spectrum of genres.
Some favorites: The Art of Racing in the Rain, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, A Fire Upon The Deep, Command and Control, Empire Falls. Oh and Harry Potter, for sure.

Movies: old classics like Bridge on the River Kwai, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and 2001 A Space Odyssey. Also fun stuff like Stand By Me, Up, Star Wars

Shows: Archer, nature documentaries, Alpha House, Suits, The Wire

Music: mostly classic rock, folk, and instrumental jazz.
The six things I could never do without
Close friends
Science!
Outdoor adventures
Breakfast - the most important part of the day
A reliable workout partner (or group)
A project to work on
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Physics. It's my job, but also just the physics of everyday life.
-Human civilization, history, current events, how we got to where we are...
On a typical Friday night I am
meeting my workout group after work, and then I'm probably just unwinding and relaxing. There could be beer involved.
You should message me if
you're looking for somebody who is active both physically and mentally.
