My self-summary
Born in San Francisco, but grew up in the midwest, and spent a while on the east coast too. I'm a scientist by vocation, which is awesome, and sometimes awful, and can be all-consuming. Other high priorities include good food (both making it and eating it), live music, and dancing. I travel a lot for work, but it sometimes lines up with fun too, most recently in Berlin. I've been doing a lot of yoga recently.
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring out how you and I are made up of tiny, molecular machines. Sometimes with an eye towards fixing them when they break.
I’m really good at
Abstraction, which serves me better in some things than in others.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The City and the City. Half-made World. Cloud Atlas. A Visit from the Goon Squad. The Blind Assassin. Middlesex. Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity. Midnight's Children. One Hundred Years of Solitude. Master and Margarita. Herman Hesse's books.

Primer. Amores Perros. City of God. Brick. The Devil's Backbone. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The Conformist. The Hunger.

Amanda Palmer / Dresden Dolls. Ladytron. Goth / industrial. Electronic. Mahler, Shostakovich.

I don't exactly have a favorite--nearly anything can be done well, and I'm always interested in something new. I'm a great vegetarian cook (really, cook who happens to be vegetarian; I've impressed both vegans and committed carnivores, sometimes at the same time).
The six things I could never do without
Just one thing: non-attachment. And a sense of irony.
On a typical Friday night I am
...deep in some elaborate cooking project. I know people who say that cooking is much like labwork. I think the difference is that cooking usually works, even though it's a bit different every time, but experiments somehow fail even when you're doing everything the same.
You should message me if
...you want to get together and talk about whatever in the world currently fascinates you.

…you want to go find some excitement some evening.

...you're also looking for something non-monogamous
