My self-summary
I may seem intimidating when we first meet, but really I'm sweet, smart, and gentle. Like good salsa, I have a spicy kick. And in case you missed it among my many details, I'm married and hope to stay that way!

If that doesn't scare you off, you might like me so read on. :-)
What I’m doing with my life
On a good day, I make a new friendship or deepen an old one. I use technology to help people (including me!) learn more about themselves. To do that, I'm having to learn a lot and go outside my comfort zone.
I’m really good at
conversation, finding good restaurants, judging fashion and style, and driving. I'm decently good at cooking and rock climbing.
The first things people usually notice about me
are my presence and my eyes. And then if things are going well, soon they notice my laughter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most beloved fiction: Possession by A.S. Byatt
Most intellectually provocative nonfiction: The Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas Kuhn
Most engaging film: Belle de Jour with Catherine Deneuve
The album I'm crushing on: Little Broken Hearts by Norah Jones

I love very spicy food, especially curries, especially Thai.
Six things I could never do without
Beauty: I need to be surrounded by people and things that are the highest expressions of their kinds. That doesn't necessarily mean physically or visually.

Connection: I need to sense that I'm With You Now, and that you're With Me Now, and that it's kind of a miracle that two of us bags of water and protein can be together like that.

Discovery: I need new experiences, new ideas, and new friends, that go in directions I wouldn't have thought of on my own.

Variety: I need many different kinds of everything -- foods, languages, backgrounds, partners -- to stay flexible and alive.

And the freedom to make lists that are shorter than requested!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make things, how to make things that are better than what I have today, what new things other people are making, how to communicate ideas clearly, why people feel they way they do, how I feel right now, a beautiful or beautifully quirky person I saw yesterday.
On a typical Friday night I am
at dinner with a friend, listening to music at a club, or on an airplane travelling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I sleep naked. I'd admit even more private things after a few drinks and a few kisses.
You should message me if
you want to get to know someone with a good heart who has many new surprises to unlock!
The two of us
