My self-summary
I'm a semi-recent (2yr) transplant to the Bay Area from the Northeast. For work, I'm a computational biologist, studying human-associated microbes at UCSF. In my ever-decreasing spare time, I make glitchy electronic music and do the odd remix for friends. Plus, you know, the other stuff life's made of: cooking, dancing, biking, getting sun, applying sunscreen, the occasional vinyasa and/or squat.

Socially, a close friend describes me as equal parts cynical and doofy, which I think is pretty accurate. I'm chronically disorganized, but usually resourceful enough to make up for it. I'm about 60-40 intro-extrovert but pretty friendly. I have an inner "Tom of Finland" streak and like to think of myself as pretty open-minded and non-judgemental.

Physically, I'm roughly ferret shaped. What up, mustelids.
What I’m doing with my life
Academia. I do a sort of mixed grill of biochem and computer science. I'm also qualified to give people diet advice, as long as those people are microbes.
The first things people usually notice about me
According to the proprietor of a Thai restaurant in the East Bay, my eyebrows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Honestly, I haven't read anything new in a while -- it's sort of embarrassing given that my parents are English teachers. I like theater of the absurd, though (Godot, The Bald Soprano, etc.), and poetry (Wallace Stevens, Frank O'Hara, e.e. cummings).

Movies: Woman In The Dunes, Pitfall, In The Mood For Love, Cries and Whispers, Koyaanisqatsi, Brick, Suspiria, Wet Hot American Summer, Hackers (heh)

Music: Autechre, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, So, The Knife, Burial, Schutz, Josquin, Mozart, Grimes, Ricardo Villalobos, Andy Stott, Nicolas Jaar, various stuff off Kompakt, etc.

TV: Arrested Development, Buffy, Project Runway, RPDR, Veronica Mars, Brass Eye

Comedians: Maria Bamford, Eddie Izzard, Mitch Hedberg, Chris Morris, Chris Pratt, Tig Notaro, Aubrey Plaza, Sarah Haskins

Food: South/East Asian, Greek, drunk food, health food, etc.

Drink: Bluecoat, Junipero, Campari, pilsners, saisons, lager, whiskey, coffee
Six things I could never do without
Music. Projects. Stuff to read. Physical activity. Solitude. Other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, statistics, queer stuff, biology, where my keys are, what's for dinner, how things could be better, when the next N-Judah is coming
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, to be totally real -- but sometimes also vibrating along with a sound system, or taking a field trip for food, or kicking back with some Netflix, or settling into a big meal with friends, or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I scored high in "neuroticism" and medium-low in "conscientiousness" on the last personality test I took.
You should message me if
you want a friend and/or a big spoon.
The two of us
