I'm originally from Haverhill, MA area (35 miles due north of Boston). I used to live in Boston ( the Allston/Brighton student ghetto). I have been down in DC since the fall of 2005. I very much enjoy DC. I enjoy the culture (esp. the free museums). I would like to find a woman to enjoy all that DC and life has to offer.
Having grown up in New England I put jimmies (not sprinkles) on my ice cream, and know that a chicken lobster is not 1/2 chicken and and 1/2 lobster. However, I do like Maryland crab cakes and half-smokes as well.
I have a B.A in math (concentration in stats) from Boston U. I have passed some actuarial exams and CFA Level I. I have worked in insurance and investments for many years. Currently I'm learning R software and boning up on econometrics.
I enjoy meeting a least somewhat intellectual woman as opposed to an all-out party girl. I like discussing ideas, current events and sports to some extent. I do enjoy discussing politics but only if I have known the person for a while and she is enjoys it too. While I do enjoy intellectual pursuits such as crossword puzzles and visiting museums, I like other things as well.
I also enjoy bicylcing on the Capital Crescent Trail between Georgetown and downtown Bethesda and kayaking on the Potomac. My favorite route is down to the Rt. 395 bridge and back by the Pentagon Lagoon and Boundary Channel. I have never done white-water though (don't know how to do the Eskimo roll).
