My self-summary
Hello Bay Area!

I'm a 29 year old guy who finished up a PhD in Organic Chemistry at Colorado a few years ago. I really don't conform to the stereotypes of a science nerd though. I'm social, love doing and learning new things and meeting new people. This is preferably done with the aid of a nice, warm bourbon blanket on the weekends.

It was a great experience out in Boulder but I was ready to get back to NorCal. I work at a "big, evil energy conglomerate" in the Bay Area, but I'd like to think that I'm working to help them improve that public perception.

In my free time I'm on flag football, volleyball and basketball teams and at the end of a long weekday I'll usually catch Jeopardy and watch a doc on Netfilx. I try to work out as often as I can now that I'm done with life-sucking grad school. I'm also thinking about teaching myself to cook... I'm a chemist, so I'm hoping the skills translate well (probably not though). I played football in college and I tend to spend part of my Sundays watching my beloved Packers somewhere. I'll can appreciate regular season baseball but I totally hop on that bandwagon and cheer for the Giants come October. I do love going to games when it's $9 beer night though.

Grammar, science literacy, and intelligence are cool.

Have a wonderful day!

The first things people usually notice about me
Before people get to know me, I am pretty much always stereotyped as a "dumb jock". I kinda like that. I've been told on numerous occasions that I'm the dumbest smart guy that person knows. That's a good thing, right??
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I honestly don't even know where to start. I'm always down for good new recommendation though!
The six things I could never do without
1. My mom. I'm an only child of a single parent. We have a really unique, open relationship that I wouldn't give up for anything.
2. My friends. They're freakin great.
3. Soap. Come on guys. If this one's not on your list, you're gross!
4. Warm, moist chocolate chip cookies.
5. Jon Stewart. He needs to run for office.
6. Documentaries on Netflix. I'm all about 'em.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1. The origins of the Universe.
2. Synthetic Organic Chemistry
3. The negative influence of religions on society
4. Puppies
On a typical Friday night I am
I bet there's a whiskey diet in my hand. Yes, I said diet. Otherwise it will go straight to my hips. I've got to keep my dainty figure. I get so many dirty looks when I order these for some reason.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have 4 national champion roller skaters in my family... That's just like ice skating, but with wheels. My grandma was even the Chief National Tabulator for the Roller Skating Federation of America... Rumor has it that there are pictures of me in skating outfits when I was younger. If you're lucky, I might even let you see them.
You should message me if
You feel like sharing some of your favorite things to do in the area with someone new.
