My self-summary
I am informed that a good profile starts with specific pictures. Herein are my "General Apologies"
1) I apologize that I don't have the required shirtless, 6-pack pic in my profile. It partly has to do with the lack of a camera that can take pictures of non existent six packs. I blame technology
2) I also deleted my apparently required - "cuddling with tiger/lion" photo. If this is necessary - please let me know, the appropriate pictures may be produced on request.
3) I also don't have a picture with my car. I am told that this is a standard "must have" in male profiles - so my fervent apologies. Admittedly, I don't check out male profiles, so I cant confirm.

I really enjoy "scaring" myself. (please note, this is different from "scarring" myself, but there may some overlap). Recent adventures included a variety of "exotic" travels including dog sledding near Alaska; sand boarding in Lima, "via ferrata"ing (pretty sure the italians were screwing around when they named this) in Cusco and cuddling with lions and tigers in Argentina (hence the potential "cuddling with lions/tigers" photo) and backpacking through Scandinavia.

Work & Hobbies:
I am a formerly divorced (I like to believe it was a one time thing that will forever remain "formerly") pharmacist, lawyer, teacher and entrepreneur. With that said, I have been successful in striking a healthy work/life balance that includes dating. I enjoy meeting people and I make time for the right person...
What I’m doing with my life
1. I have had multiple book chapters in multiple books and and am currently actively writing a book on bioethics.

2. Discovering that people give their heights with shoes on (I just saw some basketball player do that)... so does that makes me 6'4"?

3. Wondering whether Walt Whitman was thinking of online dating when he wrote "Are you the new person drawn toward me?"

4. Wondering why all the OKC women are trying to learn how to play the guitar!

5. Getting quoted in Politico and other national/international magazines for my expertise.

6. I saw all 3 original star wars for the first time on 5/2/16. I get it - its a tad campy (as was Star Trek) but its a totally different feel on the genre. I like it.
I’m really good at
---- admitting my incredibly bad voice. (I have had multiple singing teachers disappear on me)
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently I have "deep eyes" (No idea what that means)
Also -- my boobs -- wait... (if you hang out with me, this is the sort of terrible sense of humor that awaits you)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1. Movies: Lord of the Rings, Matrix, most superhero movies (though both, the Superman movie and the Superman v Batman movies were disappointments - Deadpool was fun, and they did a lot more with it than I thought they could - but it got far more praise than it deserved.);
2. "New Classic" Comedies - Office Space, Ted;
3. TV Shows: Brooklyn 99, Archer, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black; Venture Brothers; the League
4. Book reading was off the table for a while. Luckily, audiobooks are helping. Recent books have included the Rosie Project, Bourne Betrayal (who knew there were more Bournes) and Ready Player One. I tried working through "The Emperor of All Maladies" since I want to write a book myself but reading about the history of Cancer is simply not my idea of a good time.
Six things I could never do without
During my backpacking trips though south America, "the east coast of the world" and Scandinavia I realized that:
A. I really missed hearing people speak words I understood. I don't understand spanish -- so I really need to hear English often enough.
B. Physical touch is really rather nice to enjoy - a hug is always welcome.
C. Hearing and understanding all sides of a discussion. Just because I disagree with you doesn't mean I am right - I could simply value things differently and I think it's paramount that I understand why we disagree.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Intersectional metaphysics --- nah --- I am not that deep ;) I usually wonder why people think farts are funny.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being an entrepreneur. Turns out - that job never stops!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dont like watching sports. I like "playing" sports. I was a national medallist in a combat sport (in 2 countries) -- feel free to ask which one. On the plus side - I discovered that I can still win in fights with people fighting at the national level.
