Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Often when people spend time around me, they find that two things
can happen: 1. their ribs will hurt from laughing too much; and 2.
their souls will just be a little bit richer. I find life to be
full of adventure and want to experience as much as I can. People
are my canvas - a collage of characters that parade around me. My
adulthood began during some of our most recent tumultous years and
has shaped my perception of right and wrong. Currently, I spend my
working hours weeding out greed and avarice which abounds in our
world today. Later, the playful side emerges full of characters who
explore sides of the human condition. Just ask the "Cabana Boy" for
a towel if he isn't too busy, and then there is "Dwayne" - the
bureaucrats nightmare! We can't forget Dr. Scion, the "Come to
Jesus Meeting" counselor, for those that have gone to the dark
side. He is sort of a cross between Hunter S. Thompson and Harry S.
Truman on steroids. I don't let him out much because people find
him a bit obtuse but effective like a mental excorcism.
Nature is my religion. There are so many lessons to be learn from
observation like the hermit crab that gets caught in a hole at the
tide's edge only to continue carving more rock as he tumbles around
after a wave crosses over - doomed to a life of turmoil. We have
all seen these people. Or, Moto, my favorite squirrel who became a
constant companion. His favorite food was dried apricots which he
would take from my hand. It took patience to earn his trust. Every
day nature will provide me with a lesson of some sorts and of
course shared with friends.
I am heuristic, humorous, and a handful
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have always felt there are 3 things a man should do in his life:
1. Have a Son; 2. Build a house; and 3. Write a book. I have done
the first two but it's the last one that has been difficult to
finish. I'm currently working on a project that may qualify as a
book because it's in the area of artificial intelligence and
financial markets particularly the derivatives markets. Don't ask
until your prepared for a lengthy discussion because I have been on
this project for 10 years. I can even spell heteroscedasticity.
This book issue is an important one for me for my Grandfather wrote
and collaborated with a partner on a book in the 60's called
"Railroad in the Woods". You get to guess which one of the two he
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I believe it would be my extremely blue eyes which if you look too
closely into them your knees will buckle. However, lately I have
been letting my hair grow (I started this when I knew the recession
had started in kind of a protest I think or budget cutting - I
forget) and it's become quite noticeable. My stylist has always
remarked that I have gorgeous hair and that it's a shame that I cut
it short. Well, she got her wish except now I don't go there too
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I thought if I listed the names of artists that I have seen
live would be representative of my likes: Rolling Stones, B.B.
King, Carole King, James Taylor, J.J. Giles, The Grateful Dead, The
Who, Little Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stones, New Riders of
the Purple Sage, Bonnie Rait, Curtis Salgado (who happens to be
Movies: There is such a wide variety of genres - Coen Brothers for
sure, but Boaz Yakin has my attention as well. Much of the dribble
that comes out of Hollywood I pass on, but occasionally they get it
right. But I prefer the early years before censorship and during
the film noir period. That was some acting then not stunt work and
digital manipulation to save a buck.
Books: All that I can say is I have a rather extensive 1st edition
mystery book collection. But lately it's been academic articles and
books on forecasting model building design.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sugar & Cream for Coffee
Dirt - I got to have a garden
Family - my only son has an only son - maybe more later!
Friends - "No Man's an Island"
Sex - What can I say
Data - I'll explain laterz
