I'm definitely a nerdy academic. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and got my B.S. in biologyenvironmental science from DePaul University in 2008. I am now a Ph.D. candidate in the Environmental Systems Program at the University of California Merced.
In my free time... I love to go wine (and beer!) tasting, train for and run marathons, and travel. In all honesty though, I don't care what I'm doing as long as I'm with good people who can make me laugh.
My ideal match is someone who can challenge me intellectually, who can make me laugh, who loves my friends and is down for anything, and who can make me feel safe and wanted.
