I love philosophy and history, the outdoors, working out, leaning new things.
I value honor, integrity, intellectual curiosity and independence.
Politics: I seem to have broken the OKCupid algorithm, since it thinks I'm more capitalistic and more progressive.... I treat each issue on it's merits rather than go with any party line.
I was born in England.
I have two kids, 13 and 8.
Martial arts, Self defence and teaching people those skills.
Sounding smarter than I am, I think the accent helps.
