My self-summary
TL;DR: Scientist, entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast, dancer, artist, board game lover, runner, cuddle addict, silly hat collector and costume aficionado. Looking for someone to join me in my exciting, silly, social, and healthy life!
What I’m doing with my life
Exercising: I like a variety of running, swimming, stair mastering, weight lifting, and high intensity interval training.
Spending quality time outdoors! Hiking, camping, picnicking, etc.
Playing board games (see below for list)
Dancing Salsa, bachata, Kizomba,swing
Learning some web development! (So I can work on my startups)
Creating artwork: Digital photography, painting, building a cat tree from driftwood, Henna, facepaint, wacky hair, and costumes :)

Less frequent (but not less awesome!) activities:
Paragliding, White water rafting, White water kayaking, Flyboarding, Flying a plane, Glassblowing, Jetskiing, Zip lining, Skiing, Snowmobiling, and skydiving!

Job-wise:
I just finished my PhD and accepted a job at Fred Hutch! I help groups go from basic research to forming their own companies.
I’m really good at
kayaking upside-down through rapids, snowmobiling off cliffs and into trees, and being dragged up mountains by ski lifts.

What? I survived all of those unscathed. I think that counts as being "good" at them! :p
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Warmth, friendship, feeling safe, relaxation, and oxytocin. AKA: cuddling!
Okay, I should probably admit this. I think I'm definitely a cuddle addict. :p
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...dating. (The process) It's so interesting!

Also, how I can convince SDOT to build ziplines around Seattle.
I'm thinking West Seattle -> Belltown -> Downtown -> Capitol Hill -> U-district -> Fremont -> Ballard. Thoughts?
On a typical Friday night I am
Different take on this one. I asked my friends what they would put in a guide to living with me/being friends with me and here's what they came up with (verbatim):
"I know it sounds weird, but just roll with it, and it will be awesome. That could be the entire guide."
• "As far as living with you, I am kind of drawing a blank because you are seriously the easiest person to live with."
• "You kind of perpetually exist in a state of running 10 minutes late, which takes some getting used to. I learned to roll with it, for the most part." sorry, that's entirely true. I do, however, text early to say that I'm running late
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been kicked off of both OKC and Tinder. I'll tell you why if you ask real nicely... :p
You should message me if
Ok, i'm going to simplify things. If you click the like button and you get a message that I've liked you, 90% chance I want to meet you in person. Absolutely send a message, it's just scheduling from there.

You can also send messages if.....
• You have nerdy and awesome pickup lines to share. I love them. :)

• You want to play the Disney Princess Bathtub Board Game with me. ;)
