Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a very happy, curious man, interested in a life of the mind,
the emotions, and experiences of all sorts. On the personal front,
I was married for 13 years, but now divorced for 6; no kids (but 2
cats). I've had one long and one short relationship since and,
along with the divorce, they've taught me much about myself and
relationships. These last few years have been an internal
adventure, part of the examined life, and while not always pleasant
it has been a boon. For example, I hear music a completely
different way now and that is a true gift. Of course it goes far
beyond that but perhaps this is a conversation we can have over a
glass of wine. I am looking for someone to share all this and more
together for the long term. You'll have an expressive elegance, a
graceful sophistication, and an joyful optimism and together we'll
share it with friends around the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been lucky that my career has always given me very interesting
challenges and many unexpected benefits. Currently I'm working on
underwater scientific robots (Seagliders) and vicariously learning
much climate science and oceanography. It is the perfect job that
let's me travel nearly anywhere in the world and 'work'. It has
also taken many strange and interesting places, Greenland being the
furthest afield. I love to travel and have explored much of the
northern hemisphere in Europe and Asia but have left the southern
hemisphere as a treat for...soon and in your pleasant
I've always been interested in history
but recently that has branched
out to include evolutionary psychology
and sociology. Perhaps together we can sort some of this out?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Traveling to other countries, the more far-flung the better. I'm a
fair hand in the kitchen. And I'm good at making art, culture, and
science a big part of my life.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a current passion for reading books from the 1700s and
1800s; the use of English is exquisite. I like books with nested
structure and irony. Netflix nails my movie tastes as 'dramas
gritty, cerebral, witty, mind-bending, and understated; no horror
please'. I like my food simple, fresh, and good though I've been
known to make complicated French contraptions in my time.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How music and art works...why it moves me. How the mind, emotional
and rational, works. How we got to be us and me.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A movie, a concert, or a book. Curled up with the cats.
