Diplomatic and popular, I'm an interesting mix of gregariousness paired with introversion, intuitive reasoning paired with savvy business skills. Oh, wait, that's the Chinese Zodiac...
I consider myself honest, well-balanced, kind, optimistic, and easy-going. I'm looking for much the same in a partner. In the long-run, kindness and empathy are what matter.
In a typical day, I like to do a bit of everything: read, exercise, and engage in some of my hobbies. That being said, my interests range from music (piano and violin), cooking, running, dancing (West-Coast Swing and Hustle among my favorites), pub trivia, martial arts, writing, astronomy.
If you want more information, look for my complete biography, co-written by Bob Woodward (who I allowed to follow me around for a year), coming out soon on Amazon.
Most music genras.... '50's - '90's, classical, jazz. Some of my favorites are: U2, Cure, Beetles, Led Zeppelin, Crowded House, Vivaldi, Bach, Chopin.
Most types of food... Dim Sum, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Italian, Peruvian.
If I watch TV, I like to learn things (or laugh). As far as shows go: The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Mythbusters, Good Eats, Jeopardy, cooking shows, documentaries.
Movies: comedies, action, sci-fi, animated. Usually, the fewer random explosions, the better.
