Looking for someone who makes me want to become a better person for
them. Someone to share things with at the end of the day. Someone I
could talk to for hours and not be bored. Someone I can be proud
of, not just for her appearance, but because of the person who she
is. Someone who will travel the world with me, take long walks with
me, or curl up at home on the sofa in front of the TV with me.
Someone I can rely on, and who can rely on me in turn.
What I’m doing with my life
I manage teams of engineers all over the world. It is a challenging
job which I enjoy a lot. My days can be kind of hectic sometimes
because of all the time zones, but I do take plenty of time out to
have fun, because also I like to enjoy my life.
I stay in shape so that I can do the activities that I like:
skiing, surfing, scuba-diving.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: These days I tend to read non-fiction. But I have read lots
of stuff, everything from Hemingway to Kurt Vonnegut to
Music: I think I appreciate a wider range of music than most people
do. On any given day, I might be listening to classical or jazz, or
I might be tuned into a pop rock Internet station.
I like good voices. For example: Patsy Cline's stuff from the
1950's; Edith Piaf; Doris Day; Amy Winehouse.
Movies: I like to go to the movies, but for me going to the movies
is more of a chance to get together with friends, so I generally
watch whatever is playing.
TV: I don't watch much television. If it weren't for streaming
Netflix, I would probably miss everything I would be interested in
Museums: I like to visit art museums. I have probably been to just
about every major museum in the U.S. and Europe by now.
The six things I could never do without
My morning caffeine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever the crisis of the day is. But I take it all in stride.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully out and about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss the East Coast sometimes. I'll never move back there, but it
is still a part of me. The way the landscape erupts in deep, rich
shades of green in the springtime; the warm, humid summer nights,
with the sky full of fireflies; that gentle rushing of air before a
thunderstorm, and the relief from the humidity that the rain
You should message me if
You want to meet a fun guy--solid, responsible, but not too
serious--who might just knock your socks off.
