My self-summary
When I was very young, I read a children's picture book about how people got energy from food. It very scientifically depicted little factory people in hard hats stirring up food in a vat ("stomach") to break it down, followed by an assembly line in your small intestine where other little guys picked up widgets ("nutrients"). While I don't remember who drew the short straw to work in the large intestine, I do know that the book helped spark an interest in biology/science, and about learning about how stuff works that still drives me today.

My curiosity about science eventually led me to pharmacy school, and I feel blessed to be able to put the knowledge learned to use working in drug development. I get a lot of joy out of researching scientific articles learning about the boundaries of known knowledge on various topics and being able to apply it to my work output.

As far as hobbies go, I like biking around to explore the bay area and eating at places suggested by friends and/or strangers on yelp. Some of my favorite places to visit on two wheels include the Presidio, Ferry Building, Dolores Park, Twin Peaks, and of course, GG bridge. If you have any other great biking/hiking destinations, definitely let me know as much as I like my job, sitting at a desk for 40+ hours a week is probably not mankind's natural state of being.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring the bay area is a big interest for me since there is still so much to see. Weeknights are low key (e.g. netflix, evening walks), weekends are for eating my way through Yelp and hitting up said good eats by bike.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: LOST (perhaps not the last season..), GoT, Homeland, Fringe, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, HIMYM, Mad Men.

Food: Whatever yelp tells me to eat

Books: Most recent read were Hugh Howey's books (recommend if you like post-apoc/sci-fi type books), and still working my way through GoT books (keeping pace with HBO series)

Movies: Most recent theater-movie was Pacific Rim..liked it so much I swiped $7.99 on a United flight to watch it again and was very satisfied watching big robots fight 30,000+ft in the air.
Six things I could never do without
1. Smart phone
2. GPS on smart phone
3. Yelp on smart phone
4. gCal on smart phone
5. Phone calls on smart phone (yes, I actually use it to talk to people)
6. You get the idea..it still blows my mind that 10+ years ago I used to memorize people's phone numbers and use a land line shared with 56k internet modem (*bssshKAWELFHSALDFBbeepbooopbeepboop*)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travelling. Most recent trips were to Paris and Amsterdam, considering SE Asia for next adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home with good wine/dinner, or hanging out with friends at the local watering hole.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Feel free to ask if you want to know.
You should message me if
you consider yourself to be a good conversationalist, have a passionate work ethic, and are a honest, down-to-earth person.
The two of us
