Having grown up in New England I put jimmies (not sprinkles) on my ice cream, and know that a chicken lobster is not 1/2 chicken and and 1/2 lobster. However, I do like Maryland crab cakes and half-smokes as well. I also appreciate the Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine such as scrapple and funnel cake.
Professionally, I have a B.A in math (concentration in stats) from Boston U. I have passed some actuarial exams and the CFA Level I. I have worked in insurance and investments for many years. Currently I'm learning R software and boning up on econometrics especially time series.
I enjoy meeting a least somewhat intellectual woman as opposed to a party girl. I like discussing ideas, current events and sports to some extent. I enjoy discussing politics but only will do that if she enjoys it too. My match might be liberal or consersative. I like a woman who is genuinely nice and not a two-face like Vladimir Putin.
I also enjoy bicylcing on the Capital Crescent Trail between Georgetown and downtown Bethesda and kayaking on the Potomac. My favorite route is down to the Rt. 395 bridge and back by the Pentagon Lagoon and Boundary Channel. I have never done white-water though (don't know how to do the Eskimo roll).
show? Is the Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring really that bad? Is Tracy the owner really $900K in debt? She doesn't act like it.
