Hrm... How to start this?
I suppose we could start here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqtHAokEQfw&hd=1
^I sometimes make sketch comedies on YouTube. Latest entry: Carry the Lable Guy. Sums me up pretty well, I'm afraid.
So now that most of you are (at least) mildly concerned for my mental health, autobiographical sound byte: born and raised on an organic produce farm in Wisconsin, who left his home to study, work, and be a citizen of pretty much everywhere! I'm currently traveling about, while teaching and finishing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Háskólinn í Reykjavík in Iceland :)
Right now, I build hearts and figure out ways to image them!! I'm in cardiac tissue engineering and translational myology - currently trying to start a department out in Iceland. That's the short term goal at any rate - eventually, I'd like to focus my work in the context of the developing world, either in directed biomedical research focusing on global health concerns or in self-contracted engineering for developing rural clinics. Still might end up going the medical school route eventually - long road ahead for sure!
First things first: TRAVEL. My most recent move was to Reykjavík, Iceland a couple of years ago, but additionally, over the last seven years or so, I've been fortunate enough to have lived and/or studied in France, the UK, India, Malta, Germany, Rwanda, Uganda, Mexico, Italy, Morocco, and South Africa, and it's hopefully only the tip of the iceberg :D. Seriously, it would be awesome to sit down and talk travel, if you've got a story or two.
I also love the outdoors. And sports. Snowboarding. Ooh and I definitely have a self-diagnosed case of musical-instrument-learning ADD. I play the guitar, trumpet, saxophone, french horn, melophone, piano, and drums. I'm ridiculously passionate about music, in general. That, and Scrabble. And Bananagrams. Ugh, make that pretty much all board games. And I love to cook!! In fact, at any given moment, I might very well be found coated in a very fine layer of some sort of spice. Usually turmeric.
Also, I tend to have a really stupid, massive grin on my face for no apparent reason. Makes finding pics for this thing nearly impossible. Apologies.
Movies: RomComs, black and white classics, cheesy horror/kung fu, and Disney. Although... My favorite movie of all time involved a $7,000 budget. If you've never seen Primer, and you enjoy nerding out about time travel, you're seriously missing out on life.
TV: ADVENTURE TIME. Also, Rick and Morty. Alsoalso, Packers football (major cheese head, right here), Six nations rugby, and EPL football (woohoo Everton!). I'm also getting exponentially more interested in Bruins hockey after living in Boston :D
Music: Mostly Indie/Folk or various forms of Electronica (been fortunate enough to have seen most of the top Trance/House DJ's live!). I also love Jazz and Prog/Metal (used to be in several bands), and I love good orchestral biz. Music is something I absolutely cannot live without.
Food: ALL OF THE THINGS. However, I particularly LOVE Indian food and sushi. Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, and Ethiopian are definitely high up on my list, though.
