My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from Colorado. Spent 12 years living in Sweden and Norway conducting research at the intersection of computer science, psychology and sociology, mostly to improve healthcare systems.

Had a great life overseas, professionally and outside of work. I also learned some interesting stuff. For example, people used to tell me not worry because "The sun will always come up tomorrow", They were wrong, because when you live in Tromsø the sun does not come up for two months actually. I also learned its better when parents are not allowed to hit their kids, when there is less poverty, and when women are more equal so we should change that here.

About a year and a half ago I was given an offer I can't refuse from Google and moved here to Silicon Valley. Diversity, sunshine, it has a lot to offer.

I play flamenco-jazz guitar and go snowboarding in my spare time. Also VJ sometimes but dont actively look for gigs anymore. Had planned to start bodyboarding when I got here but a dislocated shoulder has kept me from doing that.

I spend time on OKCupid because it is more fun than bars (at least the ones in Mountain View), while presenting the possibility of finding romance. I am looking for something serious but would consider a short term distraction if you really are all that hot and not crazy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Listening to NPR. My job. Watching funny stuff on Youtube like Jerry Springer fights, memes and cats. Playing my guitar or the bass I just started with. Putting together IKEA furniture. Working out. Hitting the like button on my friends' Facebook posts. Still enjoying reading articles about conservatives having their feelings deeply hurt by the re-election of Obama.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
socio-technical design, trigger point massage, rasgueo
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear a gold "doktorsring" on my left ring finger. You get them in Sweden when you finish your Ph.D. and it makes me look married.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sex. Music. Friends. Peace. Quiet. Laughs. Love.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where will I settle down? With what type of woman? How tall, what sort of fashion style, and will she be good at math or maybe artsy stuff? Will I start a company some day or stay with this big corp or maybe move back to academia? Is that "lagom" or too much or too little? I wonder if I will use my savings at some point to just fly away to the beach for 3 years or so. What is the best restaurant in my neighborhood? Should I clean my apartment, or just enjoy my mess? Is it more shallow for man to be attracted to a woman for her looks, or for a woman to be attracted to a man for being a musician? Those flowers I just walked past smell pretty nice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home playing my guitar with Netflix on in the background.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think women that are a few years younger than me are hot, and the fact that some people think that is bad makes it even more fun.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think professionally oriented guys in their 30's are hot. You are fun to be around and have self-distance. You are looking for something serious. You are not crazy.
