My self-summary
Hi. I'm Phil. What's there to say about me. I'm an easygoing, goofy, random, and witty guy that says what's on my mind. One of my friends put it about right. "I always know something is coming. I just never know what." Another way to put it is that I put the fun in dysfunctional. I'm also a dreamer with a strong will and I'm incredibly driven.

I love sports, both watching and playing. My favorites are baseball and soccer. A couple years ago I took up fencing, and it's a ton of fun and a great work out. Plus, nothing beats the look on a friend's face when you say ,"Gotta run. I'm off to stab someone in the face." I've also played the violin since I was 10. I'm terrible at it, but hey, it's what floats my boat.

I'm also pretty bright and I'm looking for someone that's my intellectual equal. I'd like to find someone who can bring out my more adventurous side and push me to step outside my comfort zone. At the same time, I need someone I can show my softer side to who doesn't mind spending an evening curled up together, watching something on netflix or just enjoying the quiet moments.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my chemistry and chemical engineering degrees at the University of Minnesota. Since I'm a masochist, I figured that wasn't enough and also decided to get a biochemistry minor. So right now I'm looking for that all important first professional job out of college.
I’m really good at
Telling jokes that amaze and astound... Okay okay. The jokes actually shock and confuse. But I'm actually really good at teaching math and chemistry.
The first things people usually notice about me
They either notice that I'm silly, quirky, and that I have about as much of a filter as a cigar or that I'm pretty smart. Imagine that. A quirky scientist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Hobbit, Harry Potter series, The Seventh Tower series, The Hunger Games, most fantasy. I absolutely love to read. Right now I'm working my way through A Song of Ice and Fire.

Movies: Second Hand Lions , Schindler's List, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman Begins and Dark Knight, Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, and the original Star Wars trilogy.

Shows: Nikita, Once Upon a Time, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Scrubs, Fringe, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Supernatural, and Lost before it started to get weird.

Music: I like Classical Music the best, but I can't stand Beethoven. I like most music, just not rap or heavy metal. I don't really care for country either, but I can tolerate it.

Food: I like Indian and any oriental cuisine the best, although you can never go wrong with Mexican food.
The six things I could never do without
Excluding the blatantly obvious things like friends and family,
1. Books
2. Computer
3. Good food paired with so so wine
4. Laughter
5. A problem to solve
6. My Darth Vader piggy bank
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to go to earn a PhD in chemistry. That's right. Some day I will be Dr. Phil. I've also been considering running for public office lately.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually hanging out with friends or just relaxing at home with a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I see a woman in public putting a tub of lotion in her purse, sometimes I mutter under my breath ,"It places the lotion in the purse." For those of you who didn't get it, it's a movie reference.
You should message me if
Anything about me intrigues you. Go on. I don't bite... much.
