Where to start...? Well, I'm originally from the Bay Area (San Francisco). To new people I come across as kind of shy... but I'm quick to open up. I'm laid back, honest, loyal, and hard working. Definitely never sarcastic! Even though they're on the other West Coast I am really close with my family. I'm more neat and organized than most people but in no way a neat freak. I was going to graduate school at Purdue University but my boss decided to move the lab to University of Maryland so here I am. I'm in a PhD program studying plant biochemistry. I know it sounds nerdy, and is, but I'm definitely more than just a lab rat/science geek. I consider myself pretty athletic. I play golf and ski/snowboard avidly. If I could find a good roller hockey league I'd likely start playing that again too! Really excited to join a few co-ed sports this spring, summer and fall. I'm a big baseball fan and a huge San Francisco Giants fan! Having a beer and some good company at a ball park on a warm summer night... doesn't get much better. To take my mind off research I've recently taken up beer making and have made a few kit beers. Looking to create my own soon! I don't want to give away everything so if you want to know more send me a message and lets talk!
