Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am interested in spending time with someone who enjoys going to a
museum or the theater as well as for a bike ride or a hike.
While I can be very laid-back, I also can be passionate about
things and focused. I try to be open to different points of view
and learn from them. I like to balance that with humor, laughter,
and not taking myself too seriously --and can really appreciate a
little goofiness. I also believe it is very important to add value,
to contribute and to be compassionate.
I have always been a reader and have a wide range of interests,
which with my science background, has lead me down some interesting
roads, provided me with a stimulating work life, and has led to
travel to some fascinating places. I like art, dance, architecture,
theater, movies and a range of music – a great experience was
seeing a modern opera at the opera house in Venice. I am very
active and fit - a serious gym goer.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends, a good gym, my little alfa romeo on a sunny
day, books, music, my garden (particularly during such a beautiful

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Interesting things to do, making a positive contribution, and work
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Normally I would be out to dinner and a play or movie or looking
for something else fun to do.
