My self-summary
A slightly inebriated friend was helping me update my profile, and this, verbatim, is how she described me:

"open-minded, non-judgmental, happy-go-lucky, likes debates, multi-faceted, strong beliefs, loves to turn people on to new things. Not a dreamcrusher. Takes bad ideas and makes them good. Classy, clever, and quick-witted. Arouses slightly above average minds. Everyone would benefit from knowing him."

That's how I look through beer goggles, but even if you're sober, I'd still like to think I'm relatively pleasant company. Still new to Tampere/Finland, so would love to meet some new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished my PhD in geography late last year, and recently moved to Tampere for a position as a postdoctoral researcher.
I’m really good at
mixing drinks, serving drinks, drinking drinks

cooking and eating

reading, writing, and arithmetic (in that order)

anything involving a bed

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Americanah, Middlesex, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Notes from Underground, Questions of Travel

Music: I've been listening to the Hamilton soundtrack a lot lately. Ask me next week and it will probably be something different.

Food: I'm a vegetarian, and aside from meat, I enjoy almost any kind of food, particularly things that are locally grown or produced.
Six things I could never do without
water (obvious, I know, but a few years ago I made a new year's resolution to stay hydrated, and the quality of my life has since improved significantly)

my various cyborg appendages

a nice bed


xylitol gum

intellectual stimulation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the work that I should be doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about or, alternatively, in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a fairly open person, so if you ask me about something, chances are that I'm happy to talk about it.
You should message me if
you are even remotely inclined to do so.
The two of us
