My self-summary
I'm a little bit of an Odysseus - intellectual astronaut. Well traveled in the fields of Science (theoretical physics) and Technology (Software, Algorithms, Machine Learning, Data Science) but heart belongs to the Arts (play guitar, very interested/practiced in Fine Art). My journey has certainly had its share of Wonders and of encounters with Monsters.

I am only second generation and have retained a great deal of European attitudes and culture. I guess I was "predestined" to clash with harsh Calvinist/Puritan America coming from a Catholic upbringing (European aesthetics/assumptions/lifestyle are certainly different than here.)

I am ~highly~ curious and spend a good amount of my time reading and absorbing new ideas. I love adventures - especially travel and have seen most of Western Europe and would love to start exploring the East and North - as well as the rest of the world!

My mother and I have an excellent relationship.


My conflict with America

From Wikipedia:

Puritan America
Thomas Smith's Self-Portrait

Colonial American art saw a large number of memento mori images due to Puritan influence. ~~~~~The Puritan community in 17th-century North America looked down upon art~~~~~, because they believed it drew the faithful away from God, and if away from God, then it could only lead to the devil.
What I’m doing with my life
I have gone from a training in Theoretical Physics to work in software and technology. I am transitioning back to more mathematically intense work combining what I know in tech with a deep interest in mathematics.

I spend four years as a full time real estate entrepreneur (and am very proud of some of the houses I remodeled) but had to return to work after the Crash. I am very interested in investing and financial independence (and continue to work with a partner attempting to execute various business ideas).

I have recently began playing guitar again and want to continue to improve and evolve. I also love activities pertaining to the Visual Arts.
I’m really good at
Getting to the root of things. Seeing beauty in almost everything.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Blade Runner, City Lights, I am Sam - so many - I've probably seen thousands of films - am definitely a Cinephile.

Breaking Bad, Deter, House...
Musically, I'm a Pearl Jam, Stan Getz, Johnny Cash, Bach Partita kind of guy.

Food - Ethiopian, Japanese, Italian, Greek, French, Thai - of course the best deserts are Austrian (slightly biased here).

Books - My reading is so often professional or non-fiction these days - let's see The Big Con was interesting (about con-artists of early last century) - Outliers (about forces that influence where we end up in life) - basically everything and anything - A book about Antonin Artaud (a french cinematic theorist who went insane). 'The Predictioneers' - a book about political game theory. Philosophy, History ....

Accompany me back to Burning Man... Tell me your theories of Architecture or Urban Planning/Childhood Development/Fate/Fashion...
Six things I could never do without
Family, movies, music, my guitar, sketchpad, computer/internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex, culture, science, philosophy, money
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes out with friends at a wine bar. Cocooning at home or out at a restaurant with someone interesting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A wiley woman could sweet-talk me into almost anything.
You should message me if
This resonates!

I am looking to orbit as a captured planet a woman who is my sun and star.
The two of us
