My self-summary
I enjoy inactivity and sobriety. My favorite pastimes are driving in traffic, eating stale bread and waiting for my entree, doing my taxes, and especially going through airport security. I'm sanctimonious because I'm perfect just the way I am. I'm looking for a one night stand because no one is good enough to date me. And I don't work out, ever.

Just kidding, I'm the opposite of that!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a grad student working on a PhD in genetics.

I'm not sure what direction I will take after school, but I'm really enjoying the ride and learning a lot of amazing things. I'm closing in on graduating so I'm thinking a lot these days about what I want to do next. It's a great place to be in.

I'm an avid skier and ski mountaineer. My first big mountain ski descent was Mt. Shasta a few years ago. Since then I've done a solo ski descent of South Sister and most recently, I climbed Mt. Rainier, but didn't ski that one. Maybe someday :)

When I'm not in my lab or just hanging out, I try to get outdoors. National Parks, old growth redwood groves, slot canyons, but mountains most of all.

I'm just enjoying my life, trying to experience as much of the best of the world as I can while trying to make it even better.
I’m really good at
Eating sushi and burritos, going skiing whenever possible, recognizing obscure actors I've seen in other movies or shows, hosting cookouts, putting jokes in my scientific powerpoint presentations
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food is easy: I will eat anything and generally like it

Favorite books: The Origin of Species, War and Peace, Moby Dick, The Brothers Karamazov, 1984, Dune, The Martian, Hyperion, to name a few

Favorite movies: I've seen a ton of movies. The ones I've watched the most are Goodfellas, Back to the Future, Wedding Crashers, The Big Lebowski, The Dark Knight

Favorite current TV shows: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Game of Thrones, The Americans, Silicon Valley, Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead

Favorite TV shows of all time: Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Dexter

Favorite music: classic rock, electronic, indie rock, psychedelic

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can improve myself, what I want to do next with my life. Bands and comedians I really want to see and how to make it happen.

I think about existential questions. What are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Seeking some sort of insight into those questions is what got me into science.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with a few beers and friends at a bar or at somebody's house. Driving to Tahoe to ski all weekend.
You should message me if
You want to get to know each other a bit and see if it makes sense to hang out.
