My self-summary
I'm looking to meet some interesting people in the area, as I haven't been here too long. I enjoy a variety of indoor (Gaming of the video and board varieties, cooking, and reading) and outdoor (biking, hiking, exploration, and photography) activities. My sense of humor tends to lean toward the dry side, but I also enjoy many things that some would dub ridiculous (such as having purple hair or my custom cons). Apparently, I also overuse parentheses.
What I’m doing with my life
I really wish I knew. I moved to Chicago a few months ago. I'm a lost and wandering Chemist. (You probably hate Chemistry; it's ok, most people do and sometimes I'm one of those people).
I’m really good at
Intuitive problem solving.
Wearing things that are orange.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my huge nose... I mean aquiline features.


You may also notice that I have a distinct aversion to any sort of regular shaving.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite authors include: JRR Tolkien, Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Neil Gaiman, Salman Rushdie, Tad Williams, Patrick Rothfuss etc.
I read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy, but I also enjoy a wide variety of other types of literature.

“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
- Patrick Rothfuss

TV: Lost, Psych, Sherlock (BBC), Scrubs, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny, various documentaries. I've been watching a lot of true crime lately.

I will listen to most kinds of music, but I primarily enjoy variations of rock, punk and jazz.
Some of my favorite bands include: The Beatles, The Who, King Crimson, Bad Religion, The Decemberists, The Black Keys, Medeski Martin and Wood, Jack White/The White Stripes, Ok Go, Barenaked Ladies, Dispatch, Thelonious Monk, The Arcade Fire, The Shins, The Heavy

I love food. All kinds of food. I love cooking it and I love eating it. I have a strong Italian heritage so I tend to lean toward that philosophy of cooking. Simple, elegant dishes with fresh delicious flavors.

So let me ask you a question... are you a fan of delicious flavor?
The six things I could never do without
There is nothing I couldn't do without, though many things I'm sure I would miss.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and death. Happiness. My future. Jobs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or Rocket League.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still have my favorite stuffed animal from when I was a kid. His name is Toby and he's a rabbit that I got on Easter when I was two.
You should message me if
You want me to join your kickball team.

You like driving around aimlessly and taking long hikes on sunny days.

You like quiet evenings cooking delicious food with a glass of wine.

You would like to spatially and temporally overlap with me. (yes, I have spent too much of my time thinking about lasers.)

You know the seven words that will make me fall in love.
