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.
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 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.
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, Finfine, and the Red Door Cafe.
Film: Little Miss Sunshine and David Byrne's True Stories. I also like non-dumb action movies. Moonrise kingdom was sold to me as "a very mike levy movie." The describer was not off their mark.
Books: I read a fair amount, the best thing I've read recently is Maggie Nelson's "The Argonauts." I'm currently finishing up reading a plot driven collection of short stories, lots o' sciency things, and Tracy K. Smith's memoir (she's a poet).
Banjos, myth, and math.
How warm the sun feels.
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.
Also, I am currently planning on moving to Paris in a year, but we will see what happens with that.
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.
