My self-summary
I'm easy-going and relaxed, but very active.

I play tennis 3 to 4 times per week for exercise and fun, and eat very healthily although I also have a not infrequent appetite for baked goods. Black and white cookies, for example. So I am very fit (and completely drug free) and clean to boot.

I am a science and gadget guy, as well as an arts and culture junkie. Some people say I'm "normal" - or "well-rounded" - whatever that means. I like books, too. Check out my book blog:

Mostly a jeans and dress shirt guy in the winter, and shorts and t-shirts in the summer; I don't really shop in Barney's, but I like people who do.

Pretty funny -- or maybe mildly entertaining -- and sensitive. I like sex but am not a sexaholic, and have slept in both the top and the bottom bunk. I like having someone to hold onto at night. I'm looking for a person who is loving and intelligent, preferably strong, gentle, and self-aware. I'm pretty even-tempered myself. I want someone who is sharp, tuned in to life (in a different way than I am, hopefully) and whose triumphs I can support and share. Drama OK, but not pathology. Someone who understands that relationships take work.

All that said, I'm here looking for dates (dinner or coffee, share a crossword, anyone?) that might lead to something - for a day, a few weeks or months, or more.
What I’m doing with my life
I was a math and physics major who ended up working in book publishing for ten years. Now I work with kids in math and science education, and I do a little writing on the side. I am very patient, calm, and supportive. I make people shine.

Curiosity, courtesy, and a sense of humor are important to me, as well as a desire to continue growing in life, whether it be intellectually, professionally or spiritually (although I hate that overused word and I'm pretty much an atheist.)

I am truly dedicated to learning in all aspects - through experience, sharing with others, and through study. Not sure how good I am at it, though! I try.
I’m really good at
teaching. project management. understanding how people work within organizations. making iced tea. taking 15 minute naps. i make a mean daube in the winter. cutting through the bullshit. family.
The first things people usually notice about me
i have no idea. some people say i have amazing skin, but i don't see it. Oh, and my butt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
janet frame, the emperor of ice cream, v. woolf, haldor laxness, w.g. sebald, aleksandr hemon, tanizaki, etc.

les enfants du paradis, almovodar!, the edge of heaven, chicken run, wallace and gromit, curb your enthusiasm, man on wire, doctor who, BSG, romantic comedies too.

the national, cecilia bartoli, elliott smith, fleet foxes, great lake swimmers, lucinda williams, nancy griffith. st. matthews passion. tori. From my iTunes history it appears that i've listened to amy winehouse a lot more than i thought...

french, italian, spanish. delicious, artfully- and lovingly-crafted food of any kind. i guess i'm a kind of a foodie (hate that word!) but it only comes out around other foodies. i do NOT have truffle oil in my larder, but i do have a couple of different kinds of salt.
The six things I could never do without
1. friends and family
2. art music and film
3. my planner
4. iced tea
5. phone
6. naps
7. email
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how everyone's brains create an entirely complete and individual universe out of memory, thoughts and physical perceptions - how separate these universes are and yet how much they overlap.
On a typical Friday night I am
either: 1. ) at dinner with a group of friends if i wake up from my afternoon nap. 2.) tennis. 3.) book, movie, music, or, if I'm really tired, netflix or whatever i can scare up on my roku.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wouldn't be a private thing if I posted it on the world wide web.
You should message me if
You think I'm kissable. Or if you want me to kiss you. Or if you want to find out.
