My self-summary
I moved from the Pittsburgh area (so don't be confused if I refer to soda as "pop", but I will never say "yinz") to go to school and I ended up getting a job out here. I miss Pittsburgh but Philadelphia is pretty awesome too. Wearing Penguins shirts and hats around here can make it pretty difficult to make new friends, though.

I am addicted to getting new information. If you don't believe me, just take a look at my internet history. For example, in my browser history I have searches for stuff like "how much would a deathly hallows tattoo cost," "bioshock wiki atlas" (Bioshock is a video game and Atlas is a character from it), and "why do indoor cats need rabies shots." When I get bored, my mind starts wandering and I start googling stuff like that on my phone too. Did you know that Samuel L. Jackson has a clause in all the contracts he signs that he gets two days off a week to play golf and the producers have to pay for it?

I love spicy foods. Curry/Vindaloo/Indian food, Latin american food, hot sauces of all kinds, chili, stuffed hot peppers, salsa, and anything else with a kick. The euphoria you experience as your mouth is burning and tears are running down your face is indescribable. I guess it's kind of like a drug.

I also like camping/hiking/the outdoors and I am totally not afraid of bugs so if we ever do that and I have to kill some scary thing with 17 legs for you, that's cool.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a company that does drug tests. I'm a forensic scientist, but that stuff you see on CSI isn't real. It can be frustrating at times, but I just have to remind myself that I am making a difference, whether it is saving someone's life, or giving a family closure. I can't wait until I can move up in the company and take on more of a leadership role and all the challenges that brings. I am not against drug culture or anything though.
I’m really good at
Cooking. I love watching someone's eyes light up as they take the first bite of what I made for them. My signature dish is Whiskey Grilled Ribs or Cedar planked salmon.
Trivia, especially science related questions
Playing drums
Salsa dancing
Eating spicy foods
Devotion to my sports teams (Steelers, Penguins, Everton FC, Bayern Munich FC and the US Soccer teams)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my eyes, although lately it's my hair because I used to have it really long and now people are shocked at how short it is. I think I pissed off the hair cut guy and that's why he cut it so short. How was I supposed to know that it was his professional body builder wife with short hair in the picture on his workbench when I asked "Did you win that competition?" while pointing to the picture?

Six things I could never do without
My gaming computer

My cat Kia. She, consequently, can't live without her laser pen, which, by the way, I'm beginning to suspect she is developing an addiction to, or her feather toy that she loves destroying

My music



A dark, full, great smelling German beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Absolutely random shit. Like yesterday, I was wondering what the Beatles would sound like if two of them weren't dead and they were still together. I decided that they would sound like a mix between Wings, the Black Keys and a little bit of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm not settled on this so if you have a better idea, let me know.

Side note, how do cats always manage to land on their feet?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably cooking myself a good meal and then going to Karaoke or salsa dancing with my friends. I usually go to Spanish bars for those kinds of things because I can't tell if people are cheering me on or laughing at me, so I just assume they're cheering me on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate rap but I love listening to the Heist by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

One of my prized possessions is a piece of (clean) toilet paper that the lead singer of Green Day shot into the audience at one of their shows.

I only learned how to snap my fingers last year.
You should message me if
You can kick my ass at mario kart.
