My self-summary
Originally from Scotland, I now live in N Phoenix. I am 64, 5' 11", 190# with hair on my head and not on my face (no tattoos or piercings either!)

I am a professional engineer with a Ph.D. In biological sciences who failed 1st year engineering (life sometimes takes an odd path); I have a great sense of humor, a very quick wit, and I do enjoy life.

I am allergic to cats, football, NASCAR, and all other forms of organized religion.

I like classic rock, oldies, and RnB, but never got the whole rap thing.

I am a speed addict (mph), so I will occasionally take my Porsche to the track for the day. I am generally more reserved than extrovert; however I do have a motorcycle and a 3-wheeled, little red roadster which speak to my carefree, fun-loving side.

I can ride horseback (western or European style) and love SCUBA, which I dont do nearly enough (not much warm, clear ocean near Phoenix!).

I never go to the gym nor do I have an exercise regimen because the activities of my daily life keep me fairly fit.

I am looking for a partner, an equal, to enjoy life with.

If anything you have read piques your interest ... please be in touch.
What I’m doing with my life
I really respect the people I work with (professionals, every one) and it is great to work with such a talented group.
I do smell-the-roses, but it's not worth much without somebody with me who also appreciates it.
I love to get out of town or go for a spirited triple-digit jaunt in one of my refined toys (Porsche/Polaris/Honda) ... "Safety Fast" is my watchword.
I’m really good at
I am a good listener, a really good problem-solver; and I am also smart, articulate, and literate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I still ocassionally use expressions that, while clearly understandable, betray my Brit origins and are not US idiom.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
House of Games and All the Usual Suspects are my all-time favorite movies and Chicago is the best musical I've seen.
I love the food from Asia: Indian, Thai, and Japanese (in that order . . . but NOT Chinese). Middle-Eastern food is also high up in my estimation.
As to music . . . it has to be Rock or Blues (never miss Eric Clapton when he comes to town).
The six things I could never do without
The love of a great partner (where are you?)
The company of family and good people
The satisfaction of a job well done
The intense light of a cloudless sky
Starry nights
Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where you are hiding . . . and how we are going to find each other.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting laundry done so it wo'nt have to be done on Saturday (boring . . . maybe you could help me kick that habit!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Actually I don't even know what the most private thing would be . . . so admitting it is not even a possibility.
You should message me if
You are smart and witty and competitive and have a zest for life . . . AND you think you might enjoy being with me (I am one of the few Brits who is not pretensious or boring!)
