My self-summary
I'm a well-educated professional looking for more from life. I'm looking for someone to share new experiences. I'm a good conversationalist and a great listener. I'm looking to enhance my life. I love to travel, read, stay fit, cook and bake, hang out with friends. Basically I do all the sorts of things you do.
I grew up in California, went to grad-school in Georgia, then back to California, and finally here in Virginia. I've been here four years and I really like NoVa.
I am trained as a scientist, but work for a non-partisan think tank (and yes we do lots of thinking). I really like my job, but never thought this is what I would end up doing. Life has a way of surprising you doesn't it?
To be totally up-front, I am separated, with two wonderful children that I love (11 and 7). I'm not looking for more children, but I'm comfortable if you already have them. Family really matters to me, so integrating everyone is very important.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm looking to enhance my life by meeting new people and trying new experiences. This might be a new kind of food, a place I've never been or an activity I've never tried. I want new experiences. I want to grow as a person, because I realize I have been stagnant over the recent past. Near the top of my list for activities I want to try is white-water rafting. I am going to do that this coming summer. I've got a list of places to see, and things to do, maybe we can do some of them together. Time to get busy living.
I’m really good at
As I said, I'm a scientist by training and I'm a very analytical person. I break big things down into little pieces and study them. I'm a responsible and respectful person, and I am a great listener. I love to keep up with technology, I am a nerd at heart. I also love to be silly and make people laugh, I've got an inner child in me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I love to learn new things. I am a very curious person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot. I get the daily paper (I'm very 20th century). I love to read fantasy (George R. R. Martin, the late Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, etc ...) mystery (Michael Connelly, John Sandford, etc ...), technothrillers (Douglas preston, Lincoln Child, Michael Crichton, etc ...) and a bit of non-fiction (e.g. Malcom Gladwell, as well as technology and history). I read so much at work that most of what I read is what I call tripe (fun, but hardly literature). I haven't bought a novel for myself in years, the library is my friend.
When it comes to films I tend to prefer action and comedy flicks. The last three movies I saw in the theater were The Hobbit (ok, but too much filler), Skyfall and Lincoln (absolutely *amazing* performance by Daniel Day-Lewis). I don't watch that much television aside from sports (and then not as much as I want).
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. That is pretty much all I listened to from 1988-1994 (when I was buying albums). I still love hip-hop, but have included more pop and alternative stuff as well. I'm almost embarrassed to admit I love Broadway as well (love Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera).
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).

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
