My self-summary
English explant in San Francisco via Boston, Philly and Vancouver. I've a scientific background (who clicks "next" when I say PhD in chemistry?) applied to developing high-tech materials-based products and devices, and a photography website, so I like to use both halves of my brain. Spontaneous, creative, restless - I love to sail, hike, bike, and despite desperate failures in both, loved learning surfing and kite surfing in the last years. I'm an earth sign (if you go for that stuff) but in typically contrary fashion, I prefer being in the air or the water. I like train rides and sitting in lectures and movies because I'm inspired to think creatively by the combination of stimulation and captivity. I'm open to meeting men who are confident, active, fun-loving, smart, warm, and engaged (with life, not with another person).
What I’m doing with my life
Moving it around the world as much as possible and solving interesting technical problems in an entrepreneurial environment until I can afford a 70-foot Hinckley to sail off into the sunset!
I’m really good at
Differential equations. I wish.

Creative problem solving, chocolate mousse, making you laugh, road-tripping, forgetting where my keys are. Or my car.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blimey! Where's that accent from?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Despite singing the big love song on stage in a production of Camelot, I dont like musicals, so no shows here...
Got obsessed with Mad-Men (the styling was just too snappy), and Tom Ford's Single Man before that (Colin Firth does sexy?).
How about "What the Bleep do we know" (the nerd comes out), or "Schenectady, New York" (I can be obscure, too). Any Almodovar but probably "Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown" is the best (so much red). Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" is amazing, as is "Midnight's Children" and since we're on magical realism "Love in a Time of Cholera" was great, but somehow I could never finish it. Milan Kundera writes so beautifully, as does Jeanette Winterson (I never understand a bloody word of hers but they flow so nicely).
The six things I could never do without
Good shoes and Paul Smith Socks
My passport
A pocket Calculator
A good mattress
My closest friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of matter. Really. And what's yet to come.
On a typical Friday night I am
booking a flight.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
if it's brown I flush it down, but if it's yellow I let it mellow
You should message me if
any of the above doesn't put you off. You know how polarizing these things are...
