My self-summary
"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams." I can easily argue both sides of an argument, so here goes nothing: I'm too sexy for my shirt, but it's cold here Pittsburgh and I get sunburned.
What I’m doing with my life
Chasing beautiful ideas. Improving processes, devices, and the world whenever possible. Getting better at my pipette skills. Big ideas and concrete actions.

I'm currently in graduate school for Engineering and doing research.
I’m really good at
Thinking on my feet. Figuring things out. Improvising. Getting things done. Random jokes.

I also am good at technical things:
c++ bioengineering python physics cooking electronics
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. The way I move and talk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The best book that I've read lately is "Perfectly reasonable deviations from the beaten path" a collection of letters from Richard Feynman edited by his daughter.

Moonrise Kingdom. Up was a great movie. Limitless. The Watchmen. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Brave. Comedy, Sci-Fi. 30-Rock. The Office. Black Adder. Archer. Doctor Who. Weeds.

Music: my favorite Pandora station is David Byrne followed by Paper Planes, U2, RJD2, and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult. Morissey. Massive Attack. Scotland the Brave.
"Love love is a verb. Love is a doing word."

Food. I love most everything. I'd like to think I eat vegetables, fruit, and whole grains. I also eat burgers, tabbouleh, sushi, sashimi, tom yum, and on the odd occasion Ethiopian food. The blue plate special at the Red Oak Cafe in Oakland is always good.
The six things I could never do without
indoor plumbing
yogurt upddate December 2015 -- Kefir is amazing. AND you can leave it out for a week at room temperature!
air conditioning (written on a 91 degree humid day)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Always looking for ways to improve myself.

What I do for my vocation: Efficiency.
Sensors. Enzymes. Device design.
Interpersonal skills. Leadership.

How to make the best contribution. How to do things better.
Actually doing more Origami, I mean the paper is sitting right there on the edge of my desk. And who can top "Polyhedron Origami".

How hot sauce is delicious, but murder on my stomach. And I keep adding it to food. Must be a deep lesson there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, or watching the internet or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am really a spy for Switzerland, so I know all about the finest chocolates in America. Not really.

Knitting confuses me. Update Nov 2015: I still can't cast on, but I can do one kind of knitting now. (1) needles parallel (2) cross left over right (3) loop working end counterclockwise over back needle (4) pull the stitch through (5) slip off the old stitch. (6) repeat. If I work diligently, I will have a scarf for the winter.

Sometimes, I secretly pretend that the broccoli and cauliflower that I'm eating are little trees and I'm a dinosaur. Rawr!
You should message me if
It's complicated? Not usually, and straight forward explaining with love are the best.
I'm dating a wonderful, lovely, and cuddly woman. She sees other people and so does her other gentleman. I'm looking for friends.

I like new jokes. If you have a good one, let me know.

* I try to answer every message I get (even if it takes months to do so), except the obvious scams and scattershots. If all you have to say is "how are you," please don't waste my time and yours. If you have read this profile, include the word ****taradiddle**** in your message. It's my new favorite word, and if you don't say it, I know that you haven't read this far.

You love yourself, and want to share love with a partner and in the world.
You dream about the future, and make dreams happen.
You compliment my nature with your own unique talents.
You expect to be loved and treated well.
You like the technical side.
You enjoy cuddling.
You don't bite but are a tiny bit wild.
