I think of myself as caring, reflective, and achievement oriented with a high level of integrity and need to keep growing. I am passionate about doing things that make a difference, experiencing rich relationships with close friends, and taking in the beauty of nature via hikes, biking, canoeing, kayaking, etc. I am in awe of the potential richness of the human experience. Having traveled extensively in my business career, I still love to put together a vacation that mixes planned highlights with opportunities to learn and be spontaneous. As time goes by, I become more fascinated by things spiritual. I enjoy good one-on-one conversations about core values, peoples’ motivations, romance, and friendship. My reading tends toward nonfiction, focusing on holistic health, consciousness, culture, the state of the world, and connections between science and spirit. I am looking for a fit and highly intelligent woman who is still growing. She is kind, considerate, curious, and perhaps committed to large causes. She enjoys a fair amount of structure in her life but also trusts her spontaneity.
What I’m doing with my life
Originally trained as a mathematician and scientist with a background in business and consulting, I recently transitioned from deanship of an MBA program in sustainable management to crafting a third career of sorts with a good work-life balance. I continue to teach part time, organize seminars and workshops, and conduct research in sustainable management and innovative methods for teaching middle school & high school students.
I’m really good at
Connecting in a one-on-one environment, demonstrating what it means to live in integrity, bringing a group to a consensus, planning and carrying out a project to success, getting to the heart of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My upbeat, soft spoken, and considerate communication style.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nonfiction, pop, classical, & jazz, eating healthy - chicken,
fish, veggies, good chardannay.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee in the morning
A set of projects to organize
Engaging close friends while sipping wine on the dock behind my house that overlooks an inland waterway and a natural forest beyond.
Regular chats with my two grown children (NYC and Minneapolis)
A deep tissue massage at least once a month
A good bike or kayak ride in nature every few weeks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My recurring hope that it is possible for all life life to flourish on our planet.
How rich life is for those who keep growing into it and how my life can be even richer with the right romantic partner at my side.
How to leverage my skills and talents to help humanity realize its positive potential, and have a great time doing it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with good friends via email, phone, or best over a glass of wine at my local pub.
