My self-summary
Morgan Freeman once called me and some associates a "raucous bunch of miscreants."

I am curious, and flighty, and cuddly and present. I'd probably like to talk to you. Would way prefer to do it in person.
What I’m doing with my life
I am aiming towards academia. My goal is to teach at a college, well and with an eye towards new ideas and social justice.

I got into science through science writing, a stint in undergrad interning in the science section of a magazine made me realize if I could read science I must be able to do science. I've since been applying this mindset more generally.

I'm studying how the brain builds itself. As this is quite a puzzle, i am instead cutting my teeth by figuring out how cuttlefish camouflage and how seashells are made. I am a Mathematical Biologist and I plan to have a PhD by the end of the year.

I am an explorer at the knowledge frontier and prefer uncharted adventures. Also, I am kinda exhausted.
I’m really good at
stacking things precariously.
The first things people usually notice about me
For a while I was getting "jake gyllenhaal" all the time, but people seem not to care about him anymore...

I get "You are a really good hugger!" a lot; not certain what that means, but then again I've never been in a hug without me in it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I play man man, swans, and phil ochs songs to myself on my banjo. Also tend towards sparse rock/pop with female vocalists, live blues, and whatever Sasha Frere-Jones is excited about these days.
Food: I like to cook. It is good. I disproportionately like: brussel sprouts, asparagus, and miso soup. My favorite meals in the bay have been at Comis, Lo Coco, Finfine, and the Red Door Cafe.
Film: Little Miss Sunshine and David Byrne's True Stories.
Books: I read a fair amount, I just stated Svetlana Alexievich's second hand time and just finished a book called "Constructing Self, Constructing America." I think my favorite book may still be Watership Down.
The six things I could never do without
Laughter, new ideas, the Sun, excitement rising on the horizon, beautiful people, some delicious things to put in my mouth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to do things i don't know how to do.
Banjos, myth, and math.
How warm the sun feels.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wrestling strangers (Martial Arts Practice) then drinking fancy wine with friends.

A&0 x4.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I went to Brown. I'm from Long Island.

I am open to longer term commitments but am not rushing into them. I would say -- more than anything else -- I am looking for cute friends to cuddle with; with an option for more physical intimacy and intellectual connection. I am wary of putting any energy into someone who does not want a somatic (not necessarily sexual) connection with me near off the bat.

I am currently planning on moving to Paris or Chicago in a year/ year and a half, but we will see what happens with that.

I have 60 housemates.
You should message me if
You can hold your own, don't require recipes, like the out of doors, and know things I don't.

You can ask and answer good questions (ideally while cuddling).

You could imagine going weeks without a shower if an adventure called for it.

You like eating and drinking nice things.
