I'm a scientist, a student and a teacher. I'm in grad school so it means I get to wear a lot of different hats. Luckily, I enjoy all of it. I've been in Seattle over 3 years now. I moved up here from Portland, so it wasn't a huge cultural shift but I finally feel like I'm experiencing all those things that make Seattle unique. I enjoy the arts and music scenes here. I like the scenery and even the weather (mostly). I like to drink good coffee and breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.
I'm looking for a girl with a fun, spirited, outgoing personality to share adventures with. I like to learn new things, go new places and have a fun time doing it.
What is something that people are surprised to find out about you? that I took a training course on how to survive a polar bear attack.
If you could have a dinner party and invite any 4 people, dead or alive, who'd be coming? Neil Gaiman, Michio Kaku, Ernest Hemingway and Bill Hicks. I like to imagine we'd drink whiskey and listen to Beatles records.
Where do you like to hang out? Cafe Racer, the Canterbury, the Reservoir, College Inn, various breakfast spots, any place with a good shuffleboard table.
What kind of person are you attracted to? Outgoing. Adventurous. Witty. Affectionate. People who dance and sing regardless of their ability.
What's something you want to do but haven't? Visit Smith Tower. Run a marathon (only a half so far). Road trip across the country.
If I could change one thing about Seattle, it would be: less yuppies! also a basketball team wouldn't be bad either.
One book everyone should read is: Moby Dick, it's been my favorite for a long time.
One thing about Seattle I would never change is: it's spirit. I've been here over three years and I'm finally realizing how special this place is. The water, the trees, the people, the neighborhoods... I love all of it. This place has soul.
If I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be: Pizza! You can make it so many different ways.

The quickest way to my heart is nerdiness The quickest way to my bed is witty banter And in the morning, I like my eggs cooked into a scramble, served with black coffee
It's Sunday morning at 10 a.m. If I'm not still sleeping, I'm running
When I die, I believe I will go a 24-hr diner.
Something people keep buying me for gifts and I never use is calendars
One sport I will never get is baseball
