My self-summary
Professional mad scientist, in love with my job and always happy to talk about astrobiology. Part-time artist, full-time storyteller. Fan of bicycles, meditation, ballroom dance, vegetables, and local wine. I believe that people should sing more in their daily lives.

What I’m doing with my life
Art history nerd trapped in the body of a scientist. Grad student at UCSB, after a few years studying in New England. My daily work involves using spreadsheets to evolve cancer drugs and hypothetical alien life.

Also: drawing, a capella, number puzzles, cooking, video games, wine tasting. I have approximate knowledge of many things.
I’m really good at
Painting quickly, identifying mammal skulls, haberdashery, barbershop harmonies, losing at board games, and analyzing algorithmic run-time over non-traditional data structures.

Not echolocation, because it turns out that's really difficult.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sandman changed my life, but that was like 10 years ago.

Currently Watching: Luke Cage, The Magicians
Currently Reading: Margaret Atwood, China Mieville, Squirrel Girl

Interesting people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Impressionist art, saving the world, humor theory, dinosaur teeth, the history of astrology, computational linguistics, genetic engineering, how to become a professional spy, and the sun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Singing, dancing, sewing, painting, cooking, sword-fighting... I'm a bit of a Disney princess.
You should message me if
You need help solving a series of increasingly intricate and deadly puzzles hidden among Europe's greatest art museums (I've got a *lot* of frequent flyer miles I need to burn through)
