My self-summary
I'm a wanderer, I moved to Austin after living in London, UK for two years. I love everything a big city has to offer and could never live permanently away from one, but I grew up in Colorado and so being outdoors has always been a big part of my life. I'm still exploring Austin and starting to fall in love with this place, which is good since I am now a PhD student at UT and will be sticking around for awhile.

I am an environmental biologist aka field hand and lab rat. I love what I do in that it gives me the opportunity to make a small difference in the world and travel to beautiful places. Creativity is very important to me as well- music, art, fashion, theatre, literature, and good food are all what make life worth living.
What I’m doing with my life
Science, discovering new restaurants to be obsessed with, cooking kale, drinking red wine, making terrariums
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Too many to list but Jane Eyre, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Poisonwood Bible, Lolita, catalogues of Toni Morrison, Tolstoy, Michael Chabon.
Currently reading Midnight's Children

Movies: Annie Hall, Withnail and I, Gosford Park (and most Robert Altman), Zoolander, Waiting for Guffman, Funny Girl, The Last Waltz,

TV aka hulu/netflix: Parks and Rec, Arrested Development, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Bored to Death, Portlandia

Radio: This American Life, Radiolab, Wait Wait, WireTap

Music: I like most genres of music, am a classically trained pianist and singer, always looking to discover something new. Erykah Badu, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Tribe Called Quest, and Nina Simone are some of my staples, but hip hop is the majority of what I tend to listen to.

Food: Am trying to eat mostly vegetarian right now, but too many good restaurants and trailers in this town to be strict about it. Recent highlights: Uchiko (brussels sprouts!) and Franklins BBQ. I love to cook and tend to make dinner out of whatever looks good in the produce section.
Six things I could never do without
Fresh vegetables
Music (live or otherwise)
Fun friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next travel plan. I was on Vancouver Island, BC for field work this summer for 2 months, and went to London in August to visit friends there. Next trip will probably be Colorado to ski and visit family.
On a typical Friday night I am
There's not really a typical friday for me, but relaxing and catching up with friends is usually a part of it.
