My self-summary
I spend most of my time doing research. When I'm not playing scientist I like to bike, run, and enjoy living in Boulder. I enjoy sitting around watching movies, discussing politics and current events, and good books. I read voraciously and make a habit of reading several newspapers and magazines on a daily basis to keep up with the news. I'd love to add more hobbies to the list, but as a graduate student my time and money are limited right now.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduate student in Chemistry at CU Boulder. I am an organic chemistry RA to pay the bills. I'm finishing my PhD this semester and moving to Knoxville for a Post Doc at the University of Tennessee.
I'm hoping to go into science policy work after that, hopefully in Washington. Beyond that I like doing triathlons and other activities trying to stay as fit as I can without actually having to go to a gym.
I’m really good at
Not being serious, chemistry, knowing trivia, interesting conversations, pushing things to 11, being sarcastic, self-deprecating humor, and being loud.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice. People usually hear me long before they see me. I have a very bad habit of jumping into things head first. Or if I'm out on a bike ride then they notice my funny clothes and pointy bike helmet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love science fiction (both movies and books). I'm a bit of a cinephile and can't really list all the things I like. Same with books. I usually end up reading whatever is in front of me. I like Rock, Blues, and Movie Scores (entirely too much - Elfman, Williams, Zimmer, etc).
I like to keep up on current events so I read The Economist, New York Times, Politico, and Stratfor on a regular basis.
The six things I could never do without
My bike, family, friends, running shoes, lots of books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Chemistry, triathlon, marathons, politics, people and their motivations, public policy, where I might find a job, what I want to train for next year (I like to plan ahead)
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. Sometimes work, other times out in Boulder.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like musicals.
