My self-summary
Born in New Zealand, a global citizen, passionate about ideas, nature, science and humanity. Attracted to compassion, kindness, intelligence and a genuine smile. Looking for a great travel companion to see the world with.

I love nature, humanity, science, light, laughter and truth. I am strongly committed to self-development, and actively try to make the world a better place. I'm passionate, pragmatic and adventurous.

I have traveled extensively, care deeply about humanity and study languages as a hobby. I volunteer in the area of North Korean human rights. I am a global citizen: first and foremost, I consider myself "a part of the main; ... involved in mankind." (Bonus points if you know the reference.)

I'm intellectually curious. I fix things. I did my PhD in CS at MIT, then moved to the Bay Area to work at Google.

Just started hang gliding lessons, which I totally love!

Looking for a woman who is warm, enthusiastic, happy, passionate, intelligent and interesting -- who is exceptionally kind and compassionate, and doesn't sweat the small stuff. A woman who treats waiters and DMV employees with dignity and respect, who tries her best to cross the language barrier herself rather than expecting everyone to speak "American", a woman who is nurturing, gracious and forgiving.

"Grace was in all her steps, Heaven in her eye,
In every gesture dignity and love.
I, overjoyed, could not forbear aloud: ... I now see
Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh, myself
Before me."

(Even more bonus points if you know this reference.)
What I’m doing with my life
I completed my PhD at MIT, worked at Google, did a startup thing, and am currently working on some big picture projects.
I’m really good at
Bad puns.
Giving massages.
Fixing almost anything.
Approaching relationships and life with passion.
The first things people usually notice about me
I relate everything someone says back to something I read on Wikipedia.
The six things I could never do without
Passion for life
Passport and bucket list
Access to an information firehose

(Why stop at six? Rules are for other people.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The size of the universe. How the structure of 100 trillion cells in the human body can be encoded in only 3 billion base pairs of DNA. Finding my soulmate. The rise of China. How to find time to learn another language. Snuggling. Synesthesia. Algorithms. North Korean human rights. The amazingness of nature and the earth. Building robots. Raising an incredible family. Traveling to Madagasgar, the Galapagos, and Tanzania to see the wildlife. Designing flying cars. You.
