People tell me they think of me as intelligent, humble, dependable, quiet, respectful, and good with kids. I am an introvert (not shy), but when I'm with someone I can relate to, I really open up. I enjoy playing with kids, or just being in God's creation. I like to study everything from science to theology, trying to get a glimpse at the mind of God and seeking to understand His master plan from His perspective.
Originally from Texas, I am in San Diego to get my PhD in Computational Neuroscience at UCSD. The brain has always fascinated me, as has pretty much everything in science. It's utterly fascinating to me to get a glimpse into the mind of God through studying how He put it all together. I'm the kind of person who likes to know how things work and to come to an understanding of why. That is one of the things I hope to continue throughout eternity.
I'm looking for someone who loves God and wishes to serve Him in how we raise our children and how we live before the world. I want to have someone in whom I can truly confide, someone who could understand me on my level and with whom I could have intelligent conversation. If you think of yourself as a little nerdy, that would be great, since I am too. One thing I am looking for is someone who connects more naturally through the sharing of ideas than through the sharing of activities (yes, I enjoy sharing activities, but if you really want to get to my heart, you're going to have to go through my head). I want someone who is unafraid to seek truth with me wherever God leads and who will be there to encourage me in what I do in this world and in service to God.
There seems to be a pattern of people mentioning sports in their profiles, so I thought I would add something of my own. As far as competitive sports are concerned, I personally find little enjoyment in either watching or playing them. Don't misunderstand me, though; I do enjoy physical activity. For instance, I love to hike, I take a gymnastics class while at school, and I try to work out on a (semi-) regular basis. (I have to do something to counteract the deleterious effects of sitting in front of a computer all day.) It's just that physical activity (much less competitive sports) has never defined who I am; I am first and foremost an intellectual and a child of God. That being said, I am perfectly okay if you enjoy watching or playing sports, but if that forms a major part of your life's calling or of what defines you as a person, it probably would not work out between us. On the other hand, I would very much prefer someone who is health conscious, so I would hope you are not averse to healthy eating and regular exercise! (As long as you pursue that, body type doesn't really matter.)
Finally, in case you know what this means, I have an INTP personality. Look up the Meyers-Briggs test if you don't. I have found that the personality profile for INTPs pretty well describes me, so if you would like a short-cut to know what I am like personally, that might be a good place to start.

A good first date to me would probably be a dinner eating out, talking about our plans and goals, both secular and spiritual. Just to get to know the person, to discover mutual interests and beliefs, sounds like a good time to me. Of course, I am open to having a good time in whatever way she likes (within moral boundaries, that is).
Being a Seventh-Day Adventist Christian means believing certain fundamental teachings and following certain basic life principles, all of which the Bible clearly outlines. The most important teachings would be the saving power of Christ's death and resurrection, the insufficiency of our own works to save us, the creatorship of God, the soon return of Jesus, the hope of the resurrection and eternal life, and the truth of the Bible. We also need to seek to be transformed into the character of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, to have compassion on those in need, to submit ourselves to God's authority, and to pray and study God's Word regularly. We should seek to keep God's commandments but rely in His strength to do so. God's true people are those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus (Revelation 12:17).
Over the next five years, I will be working on a PhD in Computational Neuroscience. However, I believe that spiritual development should be a far more important component of my life. I intend to be active in the church and to continue to study the Word of God. Something I would like to do is go on a mission trip so I can better understand the capacity in which God wants to use me.
My favorite Bible passage would probably be Micah 6:8,
"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
It clearly summarizes what is the essential character that God is looking for in us. The commandments of God, when viewed in this light, are truly not burdensome (1 John 5:3)! There are many other passages that I could put here, of course, but I just like the perspective this one gives.
