My self-summary
I'm a born and raised Floridian, freshly out to the west coast. I love hiking, backpacking, climbing, swimming and basically anything that gets me outside, so California is great! I'd really like to meet someone who's interesting to talk to, has a great/silly sense of humor and likes to go exploring the city/mountains.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly working on my PhD, I make science happen now and then.... but when the moon howls, I don my cloak and my trusted steed to prowl the streets, bringing JUSTICE to Pasadena

All ridiculousness aside, I just found out about farmer's markets, laser tag for grown ups and all the other awesome things to do around LA: it's been great checking everything out!
I’m really good at
Getting songs stuck in my head, cooking with all the best spices, fixing things, winning thumb wars, making amazing(ly bad) puns
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a pretty cheerful person so I'd say my smile. People around me say that I'm an attentive listener and that anyone can read me like a book.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Freakonomics, Outliers, Wheel of Time, Harry Dresden, The Hunger Games

Movies:
Argo, Good Will Hunting, Forrest Gump, Arthur, The Dark Knight, and any Marvell Comics movie ever

Music:
Cake, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Boston

Food:
Just about everything... especially if it involves rosemary or a wine-sauce!
The six things I could never do without
1. Running shoes
2. Interesting conversations
3. Funny T-shirts
4. Kindle
5. Homemade dinner
6. Laptop
7. Not stopping at six
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics and current events: It's really interesting to listen/read to what the media says about a story and try to figure out what's going on inside these heads. Especially this whole NSA / Snowden business: dramadramadramadrama.
On a typical Friday night I am
-Going out on an adventure
-Playing board games
-Doing a night-hike
-Relaxing in front of a movie
-Hanging out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I firmly believe that I'm a great singer, and nothing my friends say can convince me otherwise.
You should message me if
-You have a clever pun to share
-Hiking up a mountain to stargaze sounds like a good idea
