I'm from a modest background, loved academia and became a researcher in computers for many years till one of my side projects with a friend grew into a real company. Since they I've been involved in several technology based start-up companies often spending as much time on the business/management side as on the technology.
I've an old fashioned sense of manners copied from the Jeeves and Wooster books I loved reading as a child. I may open a door for a woman but I've also partnered with women in creating companies.
I sometimes, half jokingly, describe myself as an "uber geek" as there isn't much I've not done with computers and related technology. But its what I do and not who am I.
Slightly socially phobic. Good one-on-one or small groups. But parties I do rarely.
Love to travel when I can. Even if its just a long weekend to one of my favourite cities: Paris, Rome, or New York. For a longer holiday its a much harder choice. Of the places I've been to Japan was amazing, but so was Malaysia and Hawaii and there are so many places yet unseen.
Love to go clothes shopping with my special someone. Big stores, little boutiques, designer labels or names no one has yet heard of.
Although I get on well with kids I've never wanted any of my own.
Don't take part or follow sports. I keep in shape, enjoy long walks, even cycle when the weather is good.
Sexually I'm dominant but nothing extreme so if you don't enjoy being handcuffed in bed then I'll say goodbye now and wish you well in your search. Please note that doesn't mean I'm just here for sex. I'm here to find someone to spend my life with.
PS: Since I've been asked yes that really is a recent picture of me! I could claim clean living and plenty of exercise (both of which I do try to do) but I'm sure lucky genetics plays its part too.
