Who Am I?
I'm not used to talking about myself, but here we go... My friends would say that I'm open-minded, optimistic, very intelligent, active, a good communicator, and have a high level of integrity. I tend to throw myself into whatever I'm doing, and have at least one project I'm caught up in at any given time. (I like to tinker - I'm definitely a "projects" guy.) I can be teasingly sarcastic at times and have an odd, geeky sense of humor.
I feel strongly about balance in life - I find that most mature people can thrive in a wide range of environments, from a fancy night out at the theater to a football game to a night in. I believe it's important to stay in good shape, but like everyone I have to balance that with all of life's other demands - I work out regularly, but not religiously. I'm patient and a good listener, and I tend to be open and direct in my communication, and would rather get things out in the open than let issues fester. I value deep, intimate relationships, and enjoy spending time with friends and loved ones.
Career-wise, my background is in engineering, but I ended up in the business side of the technology world because I like working with people and have decent communication skills (at least for an engineer - lol). At heart I'm an entrepreneur - it goes along with the tinkering thing...
Who Am I Looking For?
I'm looking for a well-rounded woman who has her life together and is looking for someone to share it with. Someone who shares similar values to what I expressed above, especially on the integrity and communication part; a passive-aggressive attitude or a tendency to harbor resentment is a big turn-off for me. Also, while we all have our baggage in life and things to deal with, I'm not looking for someone who wants to be "saved".
Thanks for visiting my profile - if you think we're a match I hope to hear from you!
Personal: Raising two wonderful children, and bringing joy, passion, and love to my friends' lives.
Also: Addressing injustices in the world around me. Lending a helping hand and donating my time to make our community what I'd like it to be - when I can.
Also: Playing a little too much backgammon and Go...
Movies: Oh - there are too many to put here. The Matrix, Braveheart, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet's Society, the Sixth Sense, the Butterfly Effect, ... many others.
Friends and Family
Music - and dancing
Puzzles (and all things techy and game-like)
Oxygen (I did say I'm a geek - yes?)
Sorry - I just had a "Pinky and the Brain" moment.
I'd say "logistics". This week I'll be sleeping in Mountain View on Thursday. I'm biking home from there on Monday night and back on Tuesday... and I have lunches scheduled for Wednesday and Friday. I need to have the right clothes and equipment in the right places at the right times... for me and my kids.
Oh - and if you are interested in a long term relationship, like what you read here, and think we might hit it off.
