My self-summary
So I am intentionally saying little on here because I think people getting to know me and vice-versa through actual conversation is a way better way to go about things. But very briefly I have been told I come across confident, outgoing, intelligent, and funny, and I typically feel as though I am a fairly warm and engaging person in general. I love close intimate relationships when I have had the opportunity to find them. One of my favorite feelings in the past has come from knowing that I am making the person I am with feel good. I think I am usually very caring and empathetic. I also rarely if ever get angry, in part due to some less common ways that I tend to view the world. I love movies, non-fiction books, several sports, as well as science and philosophy.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a Master's degree in Neuroscience and am currently finishing a PhD in psychology with a minor in philosophy. After I graduate I'll probably end up being a professor somewhere or perhaps doing something clinical. UPDATE: I was just offered a faculty position track within the medical school here once I graduate, so it looks like I am going to be staying in Tucson!

In my free time I play volleyball, hike, rock climb, wakeboard, snow ski, go out to restaurants, travel, and a lot more. I've also gone skydiving, bungee jumping, jumped off the top of a crane into a net, gone cave diving, and a few other crazy things just cuz I love the adrenaline rush!
I’m really good at
Thinking things through.

Seeing things from another person's perspective.

Writing.

Holding conversation.

Being spontaneous and adventurous, and rising to a challenge.

I'm also really good at giving back rubs I'm told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Incomplete and in a totally random and jumbled order: Dexter, Walking Dead, 24, Dark knight trilogy, gladiator, the matrix, Shawshank redemption, thai, indian, korean, greek, ethiopian, sushi.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the universe exists and why it is the way that it is.

Why people do the things they do.

How my future will turn out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out for a drink with a friend or trying to discover a new restaurant.
