I was born and raised on the Northside of Chicago, graduated from DePaul University, and then moved to Texas to pursue my PhD in Biochemistry. I am formally trained as a research scientist with a focus on developing methods for studying the biochemistry involved in most human disease. After completing my studies, I decided that I wanted to teach undergraduate students and hopefully share my love of science while also training them as scientists. I was offered a position as an assistant professor with both teaching and research focuses. In my free time I like to travel and experience new things. I also like to spend time outdoors both hiking and playing either soccer or softball. I am looking for her to likes me for me (continue song lyrics here…). I am the type of guy who enjoys going out and watching/playing sports, a night on the town catching a play, finding a cool whole in the wall restaurant, or even cooking a nice dinner at home and watching a movie.
In the past I would have said….
I’m the unfinished book, the babbling poet, a masterchef, loveless fool, and sometimes socially inept (think Sheldon Cooper). I study chemistry to find answers…answers to questions which have plagued mankind. In search of these answers I guard myself from real social existence.
But then again people change
Food....Ill try anything at least once. I feel it is all about the experience im a culinary travelor and with life you can know anything without trying it.
Books:...Im always up for a good book from the old classics to modern marvels.
Music: I will listen to anything but really ghetto rap or loud metal or scccream.
