ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Saw a great quote today, "A smooth sea never made skillful sailors". Though I wouldn't say my life has been rough but I like that kind of optimistic thinking :-)

I am a biologist doing cancer research here in the Medical Center. I love doing science but most of all, I truly believe in doing my part to make the world a better place tomorrow. Totally cheesy yea. I grew up in NJ but have moved around the country for school and work. I am close to my family but it's time I start my own, so I'm here looking for someone who shares my views on friendship, respect and passion.

I strive to be always curious, caring and thoughtful. Ideally I'd want someone who is intelligent, strongly independent (and opinionated to boot), isn't afraid of being unconventional and above all compassionate. Because I am also all of the above. Oh, and I really dig ink even though I am not myself

Outside of work, I like to cook and try new recipes out on my friends. I started homebrewing beers for the fun of it! Don't watch regular TV but I have Netflix and Amazon for movies. My musical taste skews towards indie pop but I like discovering new music on NPR, KEXP, KCRW, etc. I'm kind of a news junkie but I'm selective about my source. NPR and New York Times and I also read The Atlantic, New Republic and New Yorker for more insightful pieces.

I run, bike, swim and do yoga (maybe not in the same day). Being active is as much for my physical health as it is my way of de-stressing, and I find talking to people about their personal goals is a great conversation starter! It's aways tough to break the ice but I'm inclined to ask (and answer if posed to me) the type of music that you like. What gets you dancing? What makes you want to daydream? Best music for roadtrips? Best music for Sunday mornings?
