My self-summary it has come down to creating an online personal ad. I'm not against meeting people online (and have before), but I'm not the type that likes talking about myself. But what I dislike even more is having to do it over and over again. And even though I'm selective about which ads I respond to, it's better to do the initial presentation once and be done with it. So here we go.

I'm an engineer and all that goes with it...somewhat nerdy, level-headed, open-minded, and a bit of a wacky sense of humor that usually involves some kind of punnery, word play or making odd connections.

I'm not the bar, party, wild and crazy type and never have been. I can be entertained by having an interesting conversation on a random topic, watching and indie/foreign movie, or sitting in the sun and reading a book or listening to music.

I enjoy physical activities, ranging from playing ice hockey, riding my bike, yoga, or long walks (I'd love to spend more time walking around SF).

I haven't travelled much (other than having lived in several places in the US), but Hawaii, Sydney, London, Amsterdam, Portland, and San Diego are all on the short list of places I'd like to visit.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The illusory nature of free will. But then again, I have to.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My secret desire is to live in a house in the woods, next to a lake or river with otters. Why? Because otters, that's why.
