Hi – Thanks so much for stopping by!

Summer is full bore and it seems like people either love it or hate it. I can create fun all year round, but Summer is my season. No A/C hugger here. Now is for cycling, and summer dresses; picnics and farmers markets; wine on a patio, outdoor movies and paddling in boats. And on the really hot days, it’s for sleuthing the best ice cream/gelato/frozen custard in town! Summer sometimes brings steamy days, but it also brings beautiful nights and silky mornings, and I’m in heaven.

How do you like your summer? On the beach? On the water? Under sail? With fresh food? Grilled? With a beat? A baseball? Road trips? Singing in your car? Is their anything that you really want to do this summer? I'd love to hear about it!

I like to do and try new, fun things. For me, life is kind of one big adventure. And it doesn’t matter whether I’m doing small, quiet things or I’m being active, because ‘adventure’ is really a way of looking at the world. It’s being open to the experience. So rafting down the Colorado River, cycling through Tuscany, or exploring a city is Adventure. So is simply trying a new route to work, eating your first oyster, noticing the clouds before a storm, or looking at stars.

Adventure is also experiencing another person on a deeper level. And I am looking to share life with someone who becomes my best friend, playmate, and lover: You can talk with your best friend about almost anything because you respect and have heart for just who they are; you have great fun and play well together when you're in sync, and the chemistry from a simple touch or look from your lover gets your attention. But I think the most important thing is that we LIKE each other. Even though we have some separate interests and activities, we simply enjoy doing things together. I believe that when there are the inevitable bumps, challenges and sticky places along the way, if we have those things going for us, we’ll work through anything that comes along. It takes time to develop a relationship like that but those things will guide us on the right path to that deeper intimacy. It all simply begins with, "Hello".

That’s my philosophy, anyway. And that’s the kind of person I’m looking for. I love a guy with a curious mind, a great sense of humor, and a relaxed, genuine way with people. I’m attracted to slightly geeky guys because they’re interested in many things (and, honestly, because I’m slightly geeky, too). I’m very fit (although not a superb athlete), active, outdoorsy, reflective, healthy, affectionate and playful. If you are too, I would love to hear from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm finding adventures from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Love nature, art, being outdoors, cycling, movies galore, star gazing, and sharing.

A passion for environmental biology skewed (career-wise) into industry - developing therapeutics for difficult diseases. It's rewarding, and my coworkers are smart, quirky, funny, generous so it's a good place to spend the day.

When off work, I really enjoy both play and great conversation with people - and in dating, they're good ways of getting beneath superficial and really connecting.

The fine print: married 17 years, divorced about 12. I never got to have kids. My family is small but I have a wonderful niece and nephew who I would do anything for. One cat - who will trigger your allergies so, hopefully, you're willing to pop an anti-cat dander pill!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation with some depth
Laughing till I can't talk
Inventing fun
Making anything with blueberries in it
Not so good at dancing, but I'm good at doing it anyway.

Avid reader, but no more than one at a time. Standouts: The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, and, Into Thin Air, by Jon Krakauer. I've read several books by Haruki Murakami this year. If you like very weird stories, Murakami is your guy! I recently finished The Martian - excellent, moving story full of heart - a nail-biter to the very end! If you're at all geeky, this is the book for you! Currently reading: The Boys in the Boat

I watch very little tv, but I love movies. My nephew told me I’d have more fun at the movies if I got over only seeing “good” ones. He was right! I enjoy all kinds now. I’ll mark my calendar for a sci-fi premier. Especially like the quirky or thoughtful independent films. I make a point to see the Oscar nominated Animated Shorts every year. Some favorites off the top of my head: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger Than Fiction, Life of Pi, Phenomenon, Whiplash.

Music-- mostly indie/alt music, with other genres and eras tossed-in for good measure.

I’m a total foodie, but even so, there’s something special about peanuts and a dog at a Nats game (ketchup and relish, please. No mustard will touch my dog).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Affection in many forms - hugging is like an instant drug.
2. Sunlight and blue sky give me energy. Having said that, I love four seasons because they change things up.
3. Curiosity, an open mind, and a great conversation (they go together).
4. Special people I connect with - we exchange support, acceptance, encouragement, laughter, heart and good will.
5. Nature
6. A really good cup of tea, with milk, gets my day off the ground.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The excellent pecan sticky buns that are uniquely terrific at one specific Whole Foods in NoVa, and whether it's worth the drive to go get one. Or maybe 4.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This time of year I might be meeting friends for happy hour or maybe a games night or dinner party. But if completely on my own, I'm probably heading in or out to a movie, taking a nice walk, riding my bike, or chilling outside with a glass of wine and a good book. Suggestions? Summer options are almost endless!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Besides my phobia of parallel parking?

I like stargazing. (I can hear you now, "NEXT") but picture this - a guy, a girl, a grassy field on a warm summer night, middle of nowhere, the Milky Way arching overhead....
Heaven, on many levels.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if you adventure, ride a bike, laugh a lot, hug, and generally like people.
And... you like being around positive energy, slightly geeky chicks, you want a playful, affectionate partner and a long-term relationship that's deeper than the ordinary.
