My self-summary
I love random weekend adventures, like going to the beach then finding the best blue crabs in the state. I love a good hike with the dogs and then getting some burgers. I know how to use power tools (most recently a jackhammer) and occasionally do some home improvement. I can throw a dinner party without help and am known for throwing an awesome party. I also like to explore D.C. every once in a while too. Is it really spring if you don't go see the cherry blossoms?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a scientist working for the government. I work on viruses and STDs in my daily work so it takes a lot to make me uncomfortable.
I’m really good at
entertaining (cooking, cocktails and music selection), providing random facts (never useful ones, seriously, not even for trivia games), spilling things (not very helpful when cooking), snowboarding, and anything involving viruses (that's what I studied in grad school).
The first things people usually notice about me
My dark curly hair and THE VOLUME OF MY VOICE (my dad's hearing impaired so it comes in handy).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Christopher Moore or Jasper Fforde, and well written non-fiction like Salt: A History of the World. Right now I am working my way through the Discworld series...I just finished Wyrd Sisters and am now going to focus on the Rincewind books, so you could say I like science fiction too.

Movies: I'm not too discriminating just no horror movies (I have a nightmare issue, they are scary and bizarre enough on their own without the ideas from scary movies).

Music: My music tastes are pretty much rock oriented and a bit dated to the late 90's early 00's. Some of my favorites are Weezer, Phoenix, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Libertines, Von Bondies, Rancid, Suicide Machines, Scissor Sisters, Franz Ferdinand, Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I love going to concerts too, recently saw Jack White at Merriwhether and the Afghan Whigs at 9:30 club.
The six things I could never do without
-my dogs Pierre and Max
-Water, at least 3 liters a day
-my Bose headphones
-Heat/Warmth- I hate being cold!
-Podcasts. Right now I am in love with "Spontaneanation" and "Who Charted?". If you have any suggestions I am open.
-Time in the forest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
EEK!! I own a house, it doesn't seem to get less shocking! I spend some time thinking about the next thing I am going to cook, how can I keep my dogs happy and occupied without taking up running marathons daily, and will I ever sellout and work for a company.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out in Silver Spring or D.C. to dinner or checking out the best new cocktail bar. Or I could be making it an early night so I can get up early and hike down by Shenandoah with the dogs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a half brother and a half sister from my dad. They are both over 50 and gay and they don't talk to each other. (So my family is a bit unusual and complicated). Despite all of their personality faults I love them both very much, so if you are homophobic that's a deal breaker for me.
You should message me if
You liked what you read and if you prefer to meet up sooner rather than later. I prefer getting to know people in person rather than through numerous emails.

Also, please write something interesting, like a question, or something we have in common. I'm probably not going to respond if you just write "Hi or How are you?"
