My self-summary
You can trust me, I'm a doctor. Wait, not that kind of doctor. I'm A doctor, not THE doctor. Oh, PhD comics. New to Western Mass. Starting a research job at UMass. Hoping to meet new people, expand my social circle, and find fun people to hang out with.

Scientist, geek, nerd, writer, gamer, reader, thinker, feeler. Hopeful, nervous, happy, concerned, warm, thoughtful. Acutely observant, yet highly oblivious. Honest with myself and others. Occasionally guilty of assuming people see the world the way I do, while keeping an open mind. A relentless questioner, and seeker of truth. Someone who will defend his friends with the ferocity of a bear.

I'm either the most anti-social extrovert or the most social introvert. I like to talk, but situations with lots of people annoy me.

I once had an MRI done of my head, and was informed that I have a very round brain.

The six things I could never do without
I'm changing this to, "Six things I wouldn't ever want to be without," cause I think that's more revealing of me as a person.

Unanswered questions
Hugs
A car- I love driving.
Green Bay Packers
Independence
Creativity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Specific recent topic: why do all the plants around here trigger my histimines? I don't like that time outside is followed by 12-24 hours of discomfort.

Generally:
Science
Baseball
Being a "grown up"
Games
My Friends
The truth and trust (both as relates to relationships and Diplomacy)
Why people (including me) are the way they are.
The Voltron reboot. Waaaaaay too much time thinking about the Voltron reboot. Maybe that belongs under the most private thing....
On a typical Friday night I am
unwinding after work. That could involve a restaurant and a game, or a movie, or a board game night, or video games, or driving somewhere for a weekend event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If reincarnation were real, I'd want to come back as a polar bear, even though that would probably doom me to a short, hungry life on melting ice floes.

Oh, and I occasionally travel great distances for the purpose of pushing wooden blocks around a map of Europe.
You should message me if
Anything I've written intrigues you.

Most of what passes for news coverage in this country strikes you as bread and circuses.

You equally appreciate the work of Haber, Euler, Bach, and Netter.
