I like adventures, new experiences and learning.
Searching for someone to be my playmate and partner in all things.
Over the years I have traveled for work (sometimes excessively but none now) and fun.

Dad was a woodshop teacher, I had to learn something.
Some have noticed my blue eyes, they look normal to me, I don't know any differently.
Blink, and Tipping Point. I found them absolutely fascinating.
I like the combination of data with behavioral interactions.
Freakonomics is similarly fascinating.
Enjoy the Sound of Music, also the old version of
South Pacific. Was sucked in by Doctor Zhivago.
I'm a guy so I go see James Bonds flicks, good fantasy & fun.
I have liked several Robin Williams Films - Good Will Hunting,

And a Classic was - The Gods must be Crazy - totally charming.
Have you seen the "Cars" flicks, they are wonderful.
And the first Shrek film was good.
