I am a southern gentleman and grew up in the deep south on a farm nestled in a beautiful valley in the Smokey Mountains. My backyard was the ~600,000 acre National Park. I have had the opportunity to have lived in London, New York, Kansas City, North Carolina, Alabama and the SF Bay. However, I love living in California...and I am forever spoiled by the great weather. Although, I would move back to London in a heartbeat. In California, it does so amuse me when Californian's scream at me for saying ma'am and/or opening a door.
I am an INTJ, but not sure how accurate it is...started in science (Physics) all but dissertation....and migrated to technology and business. I do so love science...but, I accidentally founded a business. I went back to Bschool, which was a blast. I do so love people with inherent Sapiosexuality, as I do prattle on ideas I have thought about for the last number of years....
And I am sightly dyslexic...for give me for wonkyness in the profile. ;-) It is funny...I never get wonky in mathematical equations....but English... ;-(
I do travel quite a bit on business...which is mostly boring. But, I do get to meet great people, as well as have air miles on which to travel to see new friends.
Now on to the random prattling.....since I slightly over caffeinated...I do so love coffee...and should add in decaf in the mix....
Married for 13 years with a challenging divorce... I was always the Boy Scout and did what was expected. However after the divorce, I reevaluated my situation and I refuse to live my life by another's dictated script and work myself to death for little to nothing. Live is short I am going to have l am living to enjoy it. Currently, remarried and in an ethical non-monogamous (full disclosure), open minded, interested in authentic relationships not marriage. Love sharing authentic experiences with great friends.
I have worked with/for some of the most powerful and rich people in the world...and the experience highlighted that no matter how much power and/or money they have if they are an asshole to start with...they are still an asshole. I would rather have authentic friends any day of the week.
Warner Brothers should start the comic up again....I do so love Pinky and the Brain...it is such a classic.
Not running anymore...too many aftermarket parts installed. ;-(

If you are centered, happy, thoughtful, optimistic, interesting, intelligent, balanced,loving, multifaceted, humorous, inquisitive, open to new experiences, vivacious, open, and a hard working hedonist, as well as naughty and nice person!!!!. Or perhaps, I just like stringing adjectives together in order to appear to know what I like, need, and want. ;-)
Are you open to new beginnings, new possibilities, and new adventures? Are you ready for new explorations?
Or you are simply confused enough say Hi! ;-) A literal message... with no figurative or metaphorical inference of the aforementioned statement is cute, also. I am a sapiosexual, so geeks, nerds, and big brains get bonus points.
You want to try the great whisky bars in SF, see cool movies, go to the theatre, sailing, try new sushi places, or put together a gathering of friends.
