Born in NY. Lived in CA, IL and NC. Really like NC and Charlotte.
Love to travel, enjoy anything involving the beach or lake, hiking,
most anything outdoors. Like to go to the gym each morning. I like
Broadway shows.. always get season tickets. Did my MS, PhD, and a
postdoc at Caltech. Someone told me that the TV show Big Bang
Theory has some connection to Caltech, so I should check it out
sometime. However. I don't watch very much TV. You can often find
me hanging out at the Wine Vault at the Wednesday wine tasting or
catching music on the weekend when my wine tasting group sometimes
reconvenes. I love the eclectic crowd and my friends there.
What I’m doing with my life
Always busy with work like most people. Need to find the next big
thing to accomplish. Recently returned from Beijing and Tokyo for
work. Exciting trip home to SFO as the plane had a major engine
failure in the middle of the Pacific. I am a university dean and
that keeps me very busy most of the time; I try to work hard and
I’m really good at
Getting things done and identifying good ideas. I love sailing and
I have a boat on LKN; competent sailor but not extraordinary.
The first things people usually notice about me
have no idea... maybe my accent, blonde hair, laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lawrence of Arabia, Kings Speech. Wicked, phantom, and recently
really liked next to normal. In the Heights and Memphis were good.
Laughed like crazy watching Book of Mormon. Going to see Ghost
The six things I could never do without
Friends, need to be near water, my sailboat, fruit, wine, the gym.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next trip to a beach.
On a typical Friday night I am
generally sharing wine with friends at the local wine shop,
sometimes I spend the weekend at my horseless farm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was younger I was a pilot but hated doing stalls in training
but would never admit it. It was just not cool to admit that.
You should message me if
Would enjoy meeting some new people. All my friends have significant others so having a friend to share some things with would be very nice.
