My self-summary
Hei, baby -- are you the square root of two? 'Cuz I'm irrational when I'm around you...

Past = undergrad in MA, grad student/postdoc in MD
...Nerdiness is Like So Totally Cool. :oD

Along with working, life has a bit of dancing, singing, and playing. These "-ings" usually include: salsa, swing, hip hop, fluid techno; in the shower and via karaoke; ping pong, piano, dodgeball, Scrabble, soccer. And somewhere in there, there's always time to paint, read/write quite a bit, and procrastinate uber often on the Internet. What do /you/ like to do?

Many <3s to stelladora -- we've made beautiful music together, via Babar. And worked at NASA. (Yea... that's right. :oP) Hrm... if I could date girlies, theruminant, eatResearchLove, Rachel46, and agelade would totally be high up on ye olde list. And these guys are pretty nifty: Aelcyx, monoclesmile, robbyk, One-Life-to-LOVE.

Little List of Likes: meeting people, CTRL+Z, sunsets, nerds, lyric wit, sports, movies, energy, poetry, insightful conversations, flashes of realization, Linux, and long walks on the beach.

Oye, chiquitos -- tomé español en mi escuela secundaria, pero todavía me gusta practicar hablando. ¿Sabes unas palabras interesantes? ¡Dígame! :)

I am callipygian, peachy keen, and hungry... yummm! ^_^
What I’m doing with my life
Tinkering with a bit o' this, along with a bit o' that.
I’m really good at
Chit chat, enjoying food, mundane Spanish, teaching/tutoring, computering, looking at brains, meeting people, introducing people, introducing people to beginner salsa, remembering names, improv poetry, reading, learning something new, making lists...
The first things people usually notice about me
I've heard "your smile", though teeth are essentially teeth. I do have dimples. For the most part, however, it's "I am Asian -- hear me roar!" A few people have also told me that their first impression was "angelic -- and then you started talking." Hmm...

The six things I could never do without
Love, laughter, originality, wisdom, a cool breeze, and a good book.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Memories, poetry, people. Focusing on what we've got, rather than what we've not. Research stuff. Neuro stuff. Engineer-ish stuff. Creating creativity and imbibing intellectual intricacies. Can you have your pi and e it, too? =b
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillaxing. Sampling the party scene. Dancing. Playing Taboo. Exploring. Out to dinner. Seeing a museum. Soccering in a patch of green. There's always so much to do, and so little time.

Recommendations? We've tried out Talara, The Ottobar, the 8x10 Club, Brewer's Art, Magerke's, Mad River, and Red Maple, as well as other places in Canton, Fells Point, and Federal Hill.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I've been on OkC for over ten years now, and have truly enjoyed meeting you online folks. Sadly, have never been single long enough to actually date anyone from the website, but would be happy to chat as friends. Good luck on your own journeys!
You should message me if
You've got any nerdy jokes or nerdy pick-up lines. Or if you have a healthy appreciation for biology, science, medicine, engineering, etc. O quieres hablar espanol. Or ni shi yi ge shuai ge. ^_~ Or if you'd like to explore Baltimore in general. :)

Did you go to an Ivy League or Institute of Technology school? How do you think it's made a difference in either your education or your life?

I have a soft spot for all you guys and gals who're into science, business, programming, engineering, and/or medicine. (n3rd pr1d3!)

Oh, and good grammatical usage and vocabularic idiosyncracies are gravitationally attractive. Kudos to the increasing number of unique profiles on this site. :)

Note that I am only looking for "friends, activity partners, and long-distance pen pals." That said, I really only use this account to check out potential peeps for my awesome single friends.
