I'm a well-educated professional looking for more from life. I’m a chemist by training, but work as an analyst now. I’m not doing what I thought I would do when I was in school. But I like it more than I expected. Life certainly has a way of surprising you, doesn't it?
I’m looking for someone to enhance my life, someone to share experiences with. I don’t have a certain set of criteria. I’ll know if you are right for me if it feels right. I’ve met a few fascinating people and I’ve learned to keep a very open mind.
Describing yourself is hard, but as my name indicates, I’m driven by curiosity. I would love to chat with you about science and technology, sports, pop culture or which Jane Austen book is the best (I’m going with Pride and Prejudice). I am a great conversationalist as well a listener.
When I get out of the house I’m more driven by who I am with, than what I am doing. That isn’t to say I don’t have interests, I do (see more below), but the right company can make anything interesting.
I have two wonderful children that I love (13 and 9). I'm very comfortable if you already have them.
I look forward to meeting many of the interesting people on this website, and good luck to you whatever you do.
I am a fairly introspective person. I’ve had an interesting past few years, and I’m trying to learn and grow from it.
When it comes to films I tend to prefer action, comedy and horror flicks. The last three movies I saw in the theater were Antman, Terminator Genisys and Pitch Perfect 2. I get my share of dramas, but that is usually when I'm in the mood. Lincoln, for example was an absolutely fabulous movie!
I don't watch that much television aside from sports (and then not as much as I want). I got Netflix about a year ago (was I the last one?) and I think I've seen most of the movies I want to. Still some good TV though. I got HBO Now and I've been spending some time catching up on stuff I missed. I absolutely *LOVED* The Wire. Going through Game of Thrones and Band of Brothers now and True Detective is coming soon.
Music is usually the radio with a mix of Pop, Alternative and Hip-Hop. It may surprise you to know know what over 75% of the albums I own are hip-hop (but, to be fair, the last album I bought was probably 15 years ago). I still like hip-hop, but have included more pop and alternative stuff as well. I also like musicals as well, in particular live. Haven't seen a show on Broadway yet, but it is definitely on my to do list.
Food is awesome. I wouldn't call myself a foodie (I don't even know how to define that), but I do love to eat. My favorites are Chinese, Mexican and Indian. I love dim sum on a Sunday morning. Recently my son has gone through an experimentation phase so I have cooked live crabs (that was an adventure), eel (purchased live at the store), squid (didn't work out well) and most recently lobster (much easier to cook than I expected). I had a blast doing them all, and I'm looking forward to trying some new stuff at home. I really need to get better with sides and vegetables though, that is my weakness (well that and presentation, I'm not an artist).
