My self-summary
Born and grew up in Boston to European parents, I have spent over 10 years in Europe and am relatively new to London.

A sense of adventure, international culture and open-mindedness are important to me. I don't watch much TV as I like to save my time and brain cells for activities I value more. (My theory: Life is short, why waste it passively watching other people do stuff on TV?) My interests include culture in general, museums (art and history especially), classical music, board games, dining out with friends, cinema, theatre, and walks/hikes. I enjoy movies, am a history buff and a trivia nut-- I adore pub quiz. If I sound very dry, I am a lot of fun when I am with people I "click" with. One of my passions is international travel – I crave the stimulation of being in a foreign culture.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to live, not living to work.
I’m really good at
Trivia, history, and other useless factoids.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm... While it's not the first thing people notice about me, once you hear me laugh hard you will not forget it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and I enjoy cinema very much. I am very open to new experiences (food, film, etc.) save for violent or brain-bending films. I like to try new things regularly.

The last book I read and really enjoyed:
"The File" by Timothy Garten Ash: describes his file kept by the Stasi during his PhD-research years in East Germany and his musings on his personal file. There are outright mistakes in his file and it is tragic to contemplate how one's future depended on such flimsy reporting. The author tracks down several of the people who informed on him and the varied reactions he encounters are illuminating. The explanations for informing on him are very revealing about human frailty, people's differing motivations and values.

Some of my favorite films include, in no particular order: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Chariots of Fire, Amadeus, Cinema Paradiso, L'Auberge Espagnol, North by Northwest, Rear Window, Some Like it Hot, Bridget Jones' Diary, Love Actually.
Six things I could never do without
Friends & good conversation
Laughter/sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
escapist travel fantasies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home, recovering from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am looking for a committed relationship.
You should message me if
you'd like to meet up for coffee/drinks and you are an educated, intelligent, kind, compassionate man with a sense of humor.

You should especially message me if you are capable of writing more than, "Hi. How are you doing?"

I can't always see likes so better to send a message.
The two of us
