My self-summary
A priest, a doctor and an engineer went golfing. The group playing the holes before them was incredibly slow, and this bothered them no end. When they finished their game, they returned their golfcart to the clubhouse, and asked the manager about the group who preceded them.
"Oh, they are a group of firefighters who damaged their eyes," the manager said. "Their eyes are really sensitive, so it takes them a while to work with the holes."
"Dear God, I will pray for them," the priest immediately replied.
"Never mind prayer," said the doctor, "I am an ophthalmologist. I'll check their eyes pro bono."
The engineer gave them a curious look, and asked the manager, "Why don't they just play at night?"

The engineer joke should have given you a clue. I have a PhD from an electrical engineering department, and apply engineering methods to biological problems. I moved to Galveston last October to take up a research position.

I like learning and am an avid student of philosophy, literature, neuroscience and astrophysics. I also like swimming, yoga, meditation, weight training, cardio, tennis, and other physical activities. I am hoping to add hiking/trekking to my activities list. I also enjoy banter with friends and family, and debating politics, philosophy, art, sports, etc. I also write a lot - plain old journaling, essays, short stories, novellas, novels.

I'd like to find my plus one. I hope to find someone who can think, and who has a modicum of emotional intelligence; someone who is easygoing and can laugh at herself. Someone who is far from perfect, but just right for me.
