My self-summary
Thanks for stopping by!
To sum myself up as succinctly as possible: I'm definitely a movie person, and will watch just about any film put in front of me, no matter how awful (sometimes the most fun movies are the terrible ones!). Im fascinated by how the eye works (or sometimes doesn't work) and am making a career out of using that knowledge to treat blinding disorders. I play the bass and a bit of guitar and enjoy playing and seeing live music. I enjoy long cycling trips, especially if the scenery is nice, the company is good, and the end destination is somewhere with great food. I've also started climbing recently, and am finding it a fun way to unwind after a long day at work. My sense of humor is mostly a combination of cringe-worthy puns, absurdism, and ridiculous portmanteaus.

Anyway there's plenty more to know, so ask away!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working for a drug discovery startup developing treatments for diabetic retinopathy. Blindness doesn't stand a chance with me on the job!
I’m really good at
Getting lost somewhere, and enjoying every minute of it. (Seriously I have no sense of direction)
Finding humor in just about everything.
Referencing obscure movies
Playing the bass
Punctuality (it's a lost art)
Making macaroni and cheese, which is probably my greatest contribution to society
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on where they encounter me. How poorly but enthusiastically I sing karaoke is definitely one that stands out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Movies: The Cabin in the Woods, The Avengers, Office Space, Hot Fuzz, The Nightmare Before Chirstmas, The World's End, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink, Bladerunner, Edward Scissorhands, Howl's Moving Castle, Rubber, In Bruges, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, and Army of Darkness to name a few.

Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Shins, The Pixies, Rise Against, Catch 22, Streetlight Manifesto, Reel Big Fish (I'm a sucker for songs with horns) , and They Might Be Giants who I love seeing live especially.

Favorite books: Song of Ice and Fire, The Dark Tower, Catch-22, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, Cats Cradle, Liar's Poker, The Martian.

Food: I'll eat pretty much anything, doubly so if it's spicy!
The six things I could never do without
Music (listening, playing, writing)
The GPS in my phone (I have a terrible sense of direction)
Netflix (is starting to run out of suggestions I haven't seen)
my bass guitar (is like an old friend)
Lists that are one item too short
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do I sneeze every time I see a bright light?
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie, songwriting, going out for dinner and drinks, game nights, going to shows, baseball games, wandering aimlessly until something catches my attention. There are way too many fun things to do to pick just one. As long as I'm with people I enjoy being around, i can be happy doing just about anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I watch more than 5 minutes of any movie, I feel obligated to finish watching it no matter how awful it may be, so you can make me watch almost anything.

Please don't use this information against me!
You should message me if
What's this "if" business? You should totally message me! Especially if you took all that time to read to this point. Something must have held your interest to get this far!
