Even a walk to the house is beautiful -- like walking through a botanical garden. The house is cozy, fun and feels lika family. We dance while cooking, read/work, and have philosophical/scientific discussions. Beatiful social neighborhood.
The house is in the heart of the Gourmet Ghetto and within blocks of Berkeley campus and Downtown Berkeley BART station. Chez Panisse is right around the block, as is the Cheese Board and a number of great supermarkets and farmers' markets. We have a beautiful, large backyard with a garden, fruit trees, and a decorative fire pit. In the house, there is a large and cozy living room, a kitchen with gas stove, two full bathrooms, and a colorful breakfast room. We have two porches: one has a rocking chair and the other one a grill and a table; they are great places to hang out. Hardwood floors throughout. DSL wireless. A house cleaner comes by twice a month, so the house is generally very tidy. We have a TV but it is used exclusively to watch DVDs and streams. There's a piano (an old one--think New Orleans brothel circa 1900) if you're musically inclined. The neighborhood is blissfully quiet.

We are a friendly group of people in our mid-20s and early 30s--graduate students and professionals. We like to chat, go to events, play board games, and host occasional parties both raucous and restrained, but our household is not the only thing in any of our lives.
I finished my postdoc in theoretical chemistry a few weeks ago at UCB. I’m currently looking for data-science/coding/research jobs. I’m originally from Russia, but I lived on the East Coast for the past ten years. I’m pretty open, social, and flexible as a person. My interests include sports (mma, endurance, yoga), dance (tango, salsa), arts, music (radio DJ), projects (web and machine learning), non-fiction audiobooks, movies (especially by Herzog and Bergman), figure drawing, and going out. For fun, I have recently been working on start-up projects and exploring the SF music and art scene. At home, I like to randomly dance while experimenting with healthy cooking, and I like having deep conversations, from time to time.
I am Justin, a 27-year-old Berliner, and I moved to Berkeley this past summer to go to Haas. I like electronic music, especially by DJs from Berlin, such as Paul Kalkbrenner, and more than anything I love making coffee with my fancy Italian coffee machine. In my free time, I design dresses and shirts for my own fashion label -- all of it is very frilly. I’d send you the website, but it takes me forever to make anything, because I sew it with my own hands. I am the fashionable person in the house. Also, I make bad decisions.
I am 26, which means I’ll probably finish my PhD when I’m - oh - 50. I’m a graduate student in biology, and I love to complain about how my enzymes won’t catalyze the reaction they’re supposed to, almost as much as I love to avoid working out by eating butter-soaked popcorn. To make up for it, I eat salads at work. Everyone in my lab thinks I’m very healthy. Joke’s on them. They never get to see me scarf potato puffs from Gregoire and pizza from Little Star. I love adventures, traveling, science, dancing, music (I used to play flute and piano and recently bought a guitar), and exploring. I am generally a very happy and optimistic person by nature, and I smile a lot. :)
I am the sole professional human in the house. I’m 31 years old, and while originally from Los Angeles, have been living in the bay area for about 11 years, presently working for a non-profit doing local, state, and federal level policy around homelessness. When I’m not dancing in spreadsheets, I ride bikes (sometimes with a beer in my hand, sometimes up mountains), write letters, read books of all kinds, watch bad movies, and try to spend as much time with my wonderful and diverse community as I can, because balance is important. You’ll also likely see me walking around the house ‘talking to myself’ in ASL, cause its better than muttering like a crazy person.
I'm a postdoctoral scholar and lecturer in integrative biology at UC Berkeley: I study the genes underlying growth patterns that make monkeys become fat as adults. I also go out to the field so that I can find out how those obesogenic traits evolved in the wild. When I'm not in South Africa doing that, I'm here teaching a class on the evolutionary biology underlying socially contentious traits like race, sexual orientation, and body shape and size. I'm 33, queer, and originally from Milwaukee (although through my work I've lived in a lot of places, including long stints in New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, Ecuador, St. Kitts & Nevis, The Gambia, and Costa Rica, among others). Aside from biology, I really enjoy modern and postmodern novels, comics (especially 'Love & Rockets' and 'Saga'), and the illustrations of Winsor McKay. From what I hear I'm generally a delightful person, but if you let my cat get out of the house I will cut you.
Some Important Considerations:
- No smoking in the house. No hard drugs.
- We do a fair amount of cooking in the house, also listening to music while cooking. This often (read: always) results in micro-dance parties.
- Ours is a green household. We compost, recycle, and use ecological cleaning products.
What we are looking for:
Our home sometimes feels more like a family than just a room to stay. We all really get along and it's important to us to find someone who's a good fit. We'd like to find someone who can hold their own in random conversations in the kitchen, who is considerate and kind, and who will add something to the mix.
If you're interested, please tell us about yourself and what you're looking for.
Ps. There is a lovely cat who stays in her room almost all the time (no problems with allergies). From time to time, she comes out to play, which is a bliss.
-- Clean and respectful. Quiet hours in the kitchen are after 10:30 pm. The living room is fine for gatherings, music, and passionate debates. We all love dancing and playing music. If you use the fitness pole in the living room, wipe it with ethanol after your exercise routine.
-- we have a moderately mentally unsound cat living in the house (Odetta), whom we all love. She often stays in Chris' room, but likes strangers and will occasionally roam around the house. Please be mindful of whether she's out if you're coming in or out of the house. Chris will cut you if she gets loose.

I have been in science for a while (theoretical quantum chemistry), i like coding, arts, dancing music, philosophy, applied psychology, film, sports, outdoor festivals, and a lot of other stuff.
I'm very easy to get along -- I have a decent sense when to be proper and chill or when to be fun and direct. I love giving positive energy to people around me.
host/guest: responsible and considerate.
movies, herzog, bergman, peter greenaway and matthew barney are some of my favorites. If you know them, you get the idea.
music: I used to host a radio show where I would play avant-garde, folk and minimal techno. so my taste is pretty divers. ricardo villalobos can make an audiophile out of anyone.
books: from little prince to arcades project
