I’ve done more American relocating than international traveling in the past, but left the country 3 times since October, visiting the British Isles, Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica. It was like a really fun series of experiments to figure out that my ideal vacation blends the sort of physical activity that's hard to get while working in an office all week (I like biking, kayaking, & white-water rafting, but lots of walking around works too) with social and cultural elements (hiking and drinks with old friends in England, meeting an amazingly generous Northern Irish couple, speaking lousy Spanish while trying to purchase insect repellent in Ecuador).
So in a nutshell, I’m pretty sophisticated now.
I like words, numbers, and people, which is why I studied math, literature, writing, and psychology. It's an unusual combination, or so people tell me, but who decided we should all choose from a few narrow specialties in the first place? Let's broaden our horizons, damn it!
Anyway, I'm wry, perceptive, kind, and not gifted at writing about myself. I’m looking to date someone interested in a relationship and a future.

Also, you take care of yourself in terms of diet and fitness. Evenings of bar food and cocktails are fun, but let's earn them.
Finally, you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn or somewhere convenient.
