I'm a doctoral student in molecular biology at the University of Texas at Austin, where I've been since graduating from Virginia Tech in 2007.
In my free time, I'm a violence prevention activist. Lately, I spend a lot of time lindy hopping (swing dancing), which tends to be one of the major reasons I travel. I used to teach Tae Kwon Do, and am currently addicted to Fitocracy and lifting.
I'm a little messy in my own home, but I try to leave other people's homes cleaner than I found them. At home I cook gluten-free and dairy-free, and am super careful about cross-contamination -- but less careful by necessity when I travel (and also, my roommate is not so encumbered with severe food intolerances).
