My self-summary
The basics: Jersey (home) - Boston (college) - Chicago (grad school) - SF (grown-up...here for almost 3 years)

I went to school for a really, really long time so now I'm ready to reap the rewards. Most of my friends in SF are in tech and/or design and for a lot of them, their work and home/social life blend into each other a lot. I'm a scientist at a biotech startup so, luckily, bring the lab home is not an option. I like being able to separate my work and home lives and I've tried to prioritize filling in my iCal with awesome Bay Area activities.

Things that are fun to me:
Exploring the never ending supply of Bay Area restaurants, bars, and wineries
Outdoorsy things - Sailing, skiing, hiking, shucking oysters, etc.
Hanging out with great friends in close proximity to food and liquor
Travel and exploring (next up - Peru!)

Things that are not fun to me:
Staying at home

I'm one of those crazy foodies that likes going to all the hot, new places opening up as well as the awesome, old-school standbys. The scientist in me is also really into record-keeping so I like checking in to fb. Checking in to okc forces me to update my profile :) swapsalot's last fancy meal was: a 13 course truffle tasting menu. Mmmm
What I’m doing with my life
Curing cancer and saving the world, one day at a time. Science bitches!
I’m really good at
weaving through crowds. It's a perk of being tiny!
The first things people usually notice about me
is my sass. I'm adorkable! Also, I talk a lot :-/

Hard on the outside, but I fight for the people I love with all my might and no hesitation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love food more than anything else and I spend the majority of my time thinking about new restaurants or recipes. My favorite things include Off the Grid and Saturday mornings at the Ferry Building. If you've lived in SF for even a little while, I'm sure you've already come across someone like me many times over.

Addicted to watching TV online...favorites include Top Chef, The Daily Show, House of Cards, West Wing, Breaking Bad, Homeland, and Arrested Development.

I really miss the annual International Film Festival in Chicago. The Found Footage Festival is pretty awesome.
Six things I could never do without
ready access to quality cuisine
NPR - it makes the commute bearable
a fantastic and unbelievable network of friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
FOMO in SF, science, politics, recipes, food and restaurant trends.

Wondering what my next adventure is going to be...
On a typical Friday night I am
eating, boozing, dancing, chillaxing, and/or on my way out of the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy building Ikea furniture.

I buy kids' sized gear at Sports Basement and REI. It's way cheaper!
You should message me if
you have your life somewhat figured out, but don't take yourself too seriously. I'm always up for checking out an awesome bar in the city or exploring somewhere new :)
