My self-summary
Originally from the Midwest, I'm equally comfortable on a horse or at the Getty. Although most of my formal education is scientific, it feels like I inherited an artistic edge.

Sure. Whatever.....

Foreign travel is compelling, and the Aegean island in my pics is one of my favorite destinations. While most Greek isles are picturesque, Kalymnos has magnificent limestone cliffs that erupt from the sea --- perfect for rock climbing. The locals are edgy, too. They ignite dynamite in the mountains to celebrate weddings and holidays, which makes inexplicable sense when I'm there.

At home in LA, my personal preference is lighting candles with my partner. In case it matters, I'm in great shape from yoga, hiking, biking and rock climbing. In a different life, I practiced Shotokan Karate for ten years and took English riding lessons in my spare time.

Every time I have the opportunity to help improve someone's life, my profession offers intangible rewards. Music, humor, literature and espresso are my favorite companions, in addition to a handful of close friends and family. I'm also fortunate to have three beautiful adult children from a long marriage, independently tucked away in NOLA and DC.

A few years ago, I learned to cook and read ancient Greek, but I intuitively knew how to kiss in high school. Indie movies, NPR, ethnic dining .....blah, blah, blah...... i wanna be rescued from another round of internet dating is the short version of the online truth.

Chemistry is essential for romance, but intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac. A perfect date sounds virtually boring. Something authentic with someone near my age sounds a little more Godiva to me.

Like dark chocolate?
I’m really good at
Connecting dots and filling in imaginary blanks on this dating site.
The first things people usually notice about me
Never asked -- but always wondered-- so give me a hint when we meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Waiting for Snow in Havana and too many more in too short a space.

Honestly though -- I don't think my musical preferences qualify as a personal accomplishment, or that my favorite foods are worth ranting, raving or reading about, either.

Netflix and NPR trump TV, especially since I don't have a subscription for cable.
The six things I could never do without
a e i o u -- occasionally y.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
relativity and quantum mechanics.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are 25 paintings in my bathroom and I think there's a hole in my shoe. Love the paintings. Obviously attached to the shoes.
You should message me if
You're interested in developing a relationship that includes emotional intimacy.

But if you're cute, shallow, and pretentious -- that could work, too.
