My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in NYC for about a dozen years, yet I yearn for Forests and Mountains. I love to travel but never seem to eat, drink, and be merry as well as I do here. I am Ivy educated but don't live in Ivory towers. I think of my work as more of a passion and calling rather than a career.

I love to sail although it's a new pursuit. I lived abroad after university and have had my horizons forever broadened.

I seek a partner in life - I want doing my own thing to turn into doing our thing together.

You should be passionate, artistic in spirit, willing and able to call me out when I am wrong, and always have my back, as I will yours.

Some recent travels were to the Colorado mountains, Tokyo & Kyoto, Cuba, Shanghai, Venice and Florence for a friend's wedding, and Croatia. I'm hoping to visit Belize sometime soon.

Update: I just returned from a trip to Croatia and Tuscany which was a lot of fun. There was a lot of wine, and some sunburn. I have a new appreciation of car ferries.

I am passionate, idealistic, and fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an entrepreneur / inventor / engineer type, in the computer software & start-up world. I manage teams of folks to help build interesting things. Generally I try to build "intelligent" software, so I think a lot about what it means to think. For a while I worked in biomedical research -- i.e. creating software to help researchers develop treatments for disease -- I found this a nice reason to get up in the morning, and it's something I would like to return to after exploring a few other things.

Outside of work, I love to travel, learn new things, and have big and small adventures.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making metaphorical lemonade,
being quick with a joke,
knowing random but sometimes pertinent historical anecdotes
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
elements of life (air, water, sunshine, etc.),
travel,
curiosity,
love,
passion,
fun,
a nice scotch (yes, that's seven)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The way things work, why they work that way, how they ought to work, and how to get them to work that way. I've got that engineer perspective.

Also, am planning a trip to Italy and possibly Croatia, so that's been on my mind lately.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No typical Friday night. Could be out an' about in Manhattan restaurants / bars with friends, at a concert, movie, catching up on sleep, reading in bed with maybe some wine, working on some new idea, on a date with you, ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My bedroom includes a whiteboard.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are awesome and you think we could be even awesomer together. "Awesomer" is an example of a thing I might say to be nerdy/dorky/amusing, in the right circumstances. You should also think that there are at least occasional right circumstances for nerdy/dorky/amusement. Also if you would enjoy a weekend that includes a night out to Carnegie Hall / Lincoln Center including some cocktails, a day out hiking or sailing, and a Sunday afternoon doing just nothing at all.
