My self-summary
First of all, let me express my gratitude to you for taking the time to stop by my profile! Distilling your personhood into a few sentences is a fraught exercise, and so like most things in the world, this a work in progress. I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions you might have!

**EDIT** Thanks for all the feedback! To clear up a few recurrent questions:

1) Yes, I agree, the expression of gratitude is wildly attractive.
2) Yes, I did fight the alpaca. He fully deserved it.
3) Yes, I have been [repeatedly] told that I would look like Ellen DeGeneres with the right haircut.
What I’m doing with my life
It's your typical bay area story. For a long time, I thought of myself as a lifelong academic scientist. I love science and my day-to-day skills range from arguably capable to noticeably deft. Now, scientific curiosity is a wonderful thing, but it is a wandering enterprise by it's very nature; I believe that if you're doing it right, you have to accept that you don't know where it's leading leads you. Of course, sometimes you catch something exciting, and when you do, you have to be prepared to execute decisively. So you start out as an academic, but you want to cure cancer, and one thing leads to another, so you wind up starting a biotech. Check back in periodically, and I'll let you know how we're doing.
I’m really good at
I will eat spicier food than you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When nobody's looking, I whisper inspirational phrases to dogs.
You should message me if
I'm into women who are independent, ambitious, and educated.

I'd like to build a good and meaningful life with the right person.
