My self-summary
Junior scientist with an appetite for distraction seeks hardcore homeboys for endless entertainment.

I'm here to meet friends of all ages and generally cause trouble.

Big fan of funk, writing hip hop and poetry, swimming, yoga, electronic music, drawing cartoons, biochemistry (I got my degree in it!), and some good sweet lovin'! If you're open-minded and a bit of a freak yourself, give me a shout! I can cook, too!

I just finished a big-ass paper on heroin and the interface between the historical roots of addiction stigma, cognitive neuroscience/neuropsychology, and public policy.

I am warm, goofy, and gregarious
What I’m doing with my life
Gosh, I'm laying low as a network engineer and Python programmer. Holding off on chasing big dreams for the moment to build character.
I’m really good at
First and foremost, I'm a people person. I love 'em. It's easy for me to completely adore almost anyone. I really, really love human beings. Dogs, too!
Organic chem - I used to be able to plot some pretty damn good syntheses, back in the day... yoga stuff, swimming, singing, writing rhymes, public speaking, teaching, weird breakdancing balance moves, drawing (charcoal, graphite, conte), making huge messes, and stir frying with a giant friggin' wok cooker.

I love rhyming. I'm really good at it, and it's a really cathartic experience to write it.

I dropped out of the chemistry path for the moment to pursue programming more wholeheartedly. I'm just a newbie, but I've got code runnin' in production at a big search engine company monitoring and diagnosing and notifying other ASNs when BGP sessions go kerplunk on our peering routers. I just started programming three months ago, and it's my first ever program. 1500 lines of python, fully multithreaded, using BigTable, protocol buffers, asynchronous RPCs, callbacks, kerberos, email, regex, and unit testing.

Man, sometimes I love my job! Not planning on staying in it, as I'd rather do somethin' focused on improving conditions for addicts, even if I've chosen to skip the med school path. Life's fun like that!

On a typical Friday night I am
Eh, mostly indoors relaxin', reading comic books and listening to music. Maybe running around outside, too. Maybe dancing. Maybe just cooking with friends. I could be staying up all night writing rhymes, too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have peanut butter in my belly button.
