I like to do outdoor activities, especially skiing. I hope to find
a partner that also likes skiing (or snowboarding), or at least is
tolerant of my ski habit. I also like cooking and trying new places
to eat. I mostly listen to classic rock, but also like reggae and
blues and would be interested in getting to know jazz and classical
What I’m doing with my life
After getting my PhD I spent 9 years as a professor (finance) and now I work at an economic consulting firm in DC. I would like to be with a partner that has her own professional interests and will share her stories and listen to mine.
I’m really good at
Handling stress, solving analytical problems, skiing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dark eyes and an optimistic outlook.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am currently reading “Into Thin Air,” which is about a mountain climbing accident on Mt. Everest.
My favorites movies are silly (Caddyshack. Meet the Fockers, etc.), but I like a range.
I don’t spend much time watching tv, and when I do it is more often sports (soccer, college football, ski racing) or news shows.
I love music and have seen a bunch of good shows in the last fews (the Who, Roger Waters, Dave Matthews, Robert Plant, Allman Brothers, Warren Haynes with NSO, …). Interested in a variety, including bluegrass, jazz, reggae...
Some of my favorite foods are barbeque, Mexican, and a good steak. I like to cook, but don’t have as much time for it as I’d like. I just moved into a new place with a nice kitchen so would like to get back into it.
The six things I could never do without
My kids, skiing, my music (mostly classic rock), pale ale,
intellectual stimulation, and mountains.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
learning from my mistakes
On a typical Friday night I am
My two daughters (12 and 9) live with me most weekends, so usually we are hanging out watching a movie or playing games.
On a date night, I enjoy going out, perhaps for dinner and music or checking out a new place. I also like a quiet night in sometimes to curl up on the couch, relax, and watch a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If we have a connection, I'll whisper it in your ear.
You should message me if
You are an active, intellectually-oriented professional interested
in companionship and closeness in a relationship that builds on
common interests and shares new adventures.
