My self-summary
Part bon vivant, part mad scientist, I've been masquerading my way through academia. I love good food, music, dance, and conversation. I think intelligence is sexy. I'm on a relentless quest for self-improvement, and believe in trying to become a better person, each and every day.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved here from Colorado, and am looking for new adventures, and friends with which to do them. Past adventures include climbing 14ers, motorcycling across South Africa, hitchhiking down the California coast, and rappelling down sinkholes.

Want to join me?
I’m really good at
Being a scientist, yet having social skills (for some reason, this shocks people).

Seeming simultaneously serious and silly. Also, alliteration.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm well-dressed, and have a mischievous grin. I've got a wicked sense of humor, but under no circumstances am I ever sarcastic. Really. I swear.

They also notice that I am extremely high-energy. I don't think that anyone would ever characterize me as "laid-back" (this makes me unique amongst OKCupid users).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I betcha we have some similar favorites. I betcha we also have some things we disagree on. I'm adventurous enough to try new food, music, and books- how about you?
The six things I could never do without
1) Food- I love to cook, and I especially love to cook for other people. The word "companion" originally meant "someone we share bread with."

10) My passport- I've been lucky enough to travel all over the globe, making friends along the way. I especially love staying with the locals- I learn so much about them and their culture (and indirectly, about mine).

11) Google, Wikipedia, and the Internet at large- because by gawd, sometimes you really need to know the radius of the Earth as measured in Smoots (approximately 3.7 million).

100) Books- I read constantly. One of the most severe cases of biblio-withdrawal I ever suffered was while traveling in Europe. A week after finishing the books I had brought with me, I found myself lunging at anything written in English with all the desperation of a junkie looking for a fix.

101) Coffee- but not just any old coffee. I mean the good stuff. If I'm desperate, I can drink bad coffee... but I have to pinch my nose and close my eyes.

110) Binary notation- and of course, people who understand it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Oxford Comma. Don't you just pity all those poor, desperate, and benighted souls who try to live life without it?

Our Noodley Master, the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The ii-V7 turnaround.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing to live music, or being live music for people to dance to (mostly jazz and blues, but I like all kinds of things).

Heading to the lab, because science!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My grandfather bequeathed me a collection of cufflinks and tiepins. I was going to get rid of them, since I didn't have any shirts that used cufflinks, and rarely wore ties. Then I realized that the far better solution was to start dressing well enough that ties and cufflinks made sense.

I'm a fantastic kisser.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you think the guys making the first move is SOOOOO twentieth-century.

All jokes and teasing aside:

Ideally I'd like to meet someone with whom I could be great friends, but who, if the conditions were right, could really invest in a relationship.

At this point in my life I've gained some experience, and I've got a pretty good idea of my strengths and weaknesses. I've learned what I can compromise on, and when not to. I'm not the least bit intimidated by your intelligence and success; quite the opposite. If you're looking for a guy who can inspire you to be the best possible version of yourself: I'm your man.
