My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a father, a college professor, an entrepreneur and a musician, and I'd like to meet a woman who is smart, funny, attractive, affectionate, passionate, accomplished, and open-minded.

Between my two children (13 and 10), my extended family, my friends, my hobbies and my job, my life is very full. But I would still welcome the companionship and sense of connection, and comfort that comes from a relationship with a good woman.

My friends would say I am an intense, articulate, funny, talented, intellectual person, with a sharp wit. They would also describe me as kind, empathic, generous and loyal.

I love language. I enjoy verbal irony and can be sarcastic from time to time, but less so as I get older.

I have both high-brow and low-brow tastes. I like fine dining, although not so fine that I don't recognize what I'm eating.

I care about politics, science, culture, literature, and current events. I read the news voraciously, mostly on the web these days. I care about ideas, and I enjoy lively, good-natured debate, but it's not personal, it's just about the ideas.

I talk about my feelings. I want to hear about yours. I'm a good listener. I’m a work in progress.

If intense, partially balding, physically fit, well-proportioned, intellectual, musician-academics are your type, I might be for you. Looking forward to hearing 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 a divorced (since 2008) father of two kids who live with me half the time. I am an academic research scientist and professor. I'm an entrepreneur who runs two small consulting companies outside my main academic job. I am a musician. I've been playing guitar for 30 years. I write songs and sing. I have my own roots/Americana/bluegrass band. I read, garden and cook when I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, talking, singing, playing the guitar, thinking, kissing, comforting.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family. My friends. Books. Music. Meaningful work. Intimacy and companionship.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science, politics, music, the meaning of life, the elements of a good life, how to raise my children, how to do my part, how to find balance, how to treat others, poetry, novels, songwriting, entrepreneurship, what's next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either with my kids or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I did not start flossing on a consistent basis until about 6 years ago. Shameful, I know.
