My self-summary
This isn't the profile you're looking for. Move along.


Ok, good, now that we've weeded out the weak minded, let us continue.

I'm back on OKC after a few years, I had decent luck last time, and thought it was a good place to start meeting new people. I'm in New York for at least another year while I finish my fellowship in neuropathology (ask me about it, I'll tell you all about it, at great length, whether you're interested or not). I don't really know where I'll be after that, but I love living in New York, so we'll see where life takes me.

So.. let's just say that I'm looking for cool people to hang out with and do fun stuff with, and if you're cool (or... really nerdy, preferably) and wanna do fun stuff, and aren't too concerned with maybe looking stupid in the process, that's awesome, and if not, that's ok too.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I'd like to say "Healing the sick," but I gave up the life of being the kind of doctor who sees patients (at least while they're still alive). So instead I'm going to say... "Vampire hunting."

Also, working on curing cancer.
Specifically one specific variant of one kind of cancer.
But it's cancer that kids get.
Cute little kids.
With cancer.
That I haven't cured yet.
I’m really good at
Neuroscience, math, guitar, piano, building things, shooting lasers at brains (no seriously), impressions, inappropriate hilarity, turning elemental raw materials into edible compounds, spotting shiny things, trailing off in mid thought...
The first things people usually notice about me
That I take nothing seriously.

Eventually, they realize that I take everything way too seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - Marvel Studios, Pixar, Star Wars (We'll pretend that the prequel trilogy never happened), Kurosawa, Sergio Leone, Hitchcock
TV - Very much enjoying the golden age of TV drama. Highlights for me are Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, the first few years of The Walking Dead, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Master of None, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec.
Authors - Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Robert Heinlein, Asimov, Frank Herbert, Chekov
Rock - Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Stones, The Kinks, The Black Keys
Classical - Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Tarrega, Villa-Lobos, Bach. Right now I'm working on the Well Tempered Clavier.
Food - my favorite food is the one I haven't tried before. However, I do believe that somewhere in the universe is a perfect bowl of ramen waiting for me to eat it.

Lately I'm listening to a lot of Vince Guaraldi and Van Morrison.

I'm a believer in Sturgeon's law in all disciplines, so I can usually find common ground with fans of any genre.
The six things I could never do without
My guitar
My piano
Intellectual stimulation
Smart phones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Medicine, Music, Cooking, Neuroscience, Philosophy

And seriously, who named a cancer gene Sonic Hedgehog? I mean honestly, now I have to put it in reports when someone has a mutation in it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, hanging out with work friends, doing work at home, or recovering from one of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't stop thinking like a doctor all the time. It gets me in trouble with normal people.
You should message me if
You're a little bit of a mad scientist. Or maybe a happy accountant. Or at least an emotionally neutral artist.
You've baked a delicious cake and need someone to try it to make sure it came out ok.
You don't want ants in this house... because seriously, that's how you get ants.
Your profile doesn't read like the very beginning or very end of Flowers for Algernon.

And especially if you think ramen should qualify as a religion.
