My self-summary
I am fit (gym daily; hiked 42 mountains in last 2 years), passionate, never-smoked, liberal Democrat and pescatarian, blessed in life with amazing children, health, and opportunities past and present, and thoroughly enjoy intellectual stimulation. I was born and grew up in Canada, lived in Europe and for 30+ years in the US and am a dual citizen.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a research computer scientist in a transition from a 25-year career to a job and life-style of my creation. So I am rethinking and reflecting on many opportunities for greater fulfillment especially personal – as the kids are off to college – prospects of doing good, not just well. I have had the great good fortune of travelling extensively and living in many countries while being at home in Cambridge. I love to cook and maybe one day – bake. I enjoy wine moderated by maintaining my target weight. Now I'm sure there was something else …
I’m really good at
Biased ... of course: hiking, cooking, planning, travelling, career, compassion.
The first things people usually notice about me
That my left shoelace is undone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent favorite books - Ken Follett’s Century trilogy: Fall of Giants, World Without End, (Edge of Eternity coming 2014); and The Pillars of the Earth; and Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. Great movies - Jiro Dreams of Sushi, The Dictator (2012), and Kaos (Chaos, 1984). Movies I’m looking forward to - Where Do We Go From Here? Favorite food – great topic to discuss!
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, the great outdoors, integrity, and passion. [And independence – damn that makes 6, just what I wanted to avoid]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The above five.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin’, cookin’, planning for the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ya sure ... online!
