I've just moved to North Cambridge for work for at least the next 9 months. I'm here with my trusty Honda Element, hiking books, camping gear and a wet suit. Let's adventure!
Part Winston Wolf, part hostage negotiator. I'm a hired gun (brain?) making things better in the world of Biotechnology and medical devices.
I swear like a sailor and go out of my way to be kind to children, old people, and strangers. I am also pro Oxford comma.
I love the geekier things in life, the smarter things in life and filling up my passport.
So far: France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Canadia, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, New Zealand, Taiwan (sort of), USVI, Hawaii (I know, still US but I'd say it counts as Adventure).
So many more places left to experience.
It was just a job.
Then, after the fifth, the 10th, the 30th person- came up to me and thanked me for what I was did, what I had helped to make, it dawned on me that it was more than that. I help people.
It. Feels. Amazing.
I fill my life with great friends, helping others, learning, laughter (both quiet and uproarious), and, most recently, travel.
I love my beautiful friends, I love my beautiful life (this includes the friends that don't think they are beautiful- eventually they will understand that they really are).
Making friends with every child and every dog I meet. I love them. They love me. Easy peasey
Collecting and connecting amazing people.
Going with the flow.
Hosting dinners, BBQs, cocktail parties, birthdays. I live for that kind of thing.
Having my shit together.
b.) Movies? Fight Club, Indiana Jones and the all of them, It's not a movie- but Farscape and Firefly, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, Blues Brothers, Buckaroo Banzai, Eddie Izzard Dressed to Kill, Shaun of the Dead, The Incredibles, Down With Love, Joe Versus The Volcano. LOST, Carnivale, Smallville, Stargate (both of them), Serenity, Doctor Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, Battlestar Galactica, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny, 1408, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, Star Wars, Star Trek, sci fi, Love Actually, LA Story, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Fringe, Dexter, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Space: 1999, Blake's 7, Misfits, Agent Carter, Agents of Shield, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, The Blacklist, Arrow, The Flash, Ash Vs. the Evil Dead
My guilty pleasures are fun campy movies.
c.) Music? Anything Acapella. Or NPR. But really I'm a KPCC fan and I love podcasts. I listen to Stuff You Should Know all the time as well as Radiolab, Thrilling Adventure Hour, Nature Podcast, Science Podcast, Startalk, The Moth Radio Hour, Note To Self, Invisibilia.
d.) Food: Yes please. I make some fantastic OMFGBBQ.
SCIENCE(!) (it pays my bills)
My friends. I am such a social creature. I love being around people most of the time.
Intimacy. (Sex is easy, intimacy is hard to come by)
On the topic of Religion (going deep here)
Believe what you will. If it brings you peace, happiness, motivates you to do good things both great and small? I'll help. Need a ride?
If, instead, what you believe leads you to violence, hatred, disdain for your fellow human? Perhaps examining the root of that message is in order. Believe what you will, but if it makes you a cranky xenophobe who feels empowered with a righteous license to hate, keep it to yourself. There is enough of that in this world.
So... don't be that person. I consider myself a relaxed and groovy atheist. Do your thing. Love your life, love people, and yourself.
Yeah, I know. But he's rad and he didn't mind.
And I was in Doctor Horrible in a purple suit and got an IMDB credit out of it.
I am REALLY bad at taking my own advice. I'm getting better though.
You have something fun or creative to share with me.
(I learn by doing and my friends historically, have been great filters for what's good out there).
Geeky or geek-appreciative women required.
Tell me about new places, your favorite places, those hidden, great things that most people don't know about. Talk to me about your travels, past or future.
Your awesome. Show it to me. (Yes, I conjugated that correctly- Promise) :)
