My self-summary
I am a California native. I attended college and graduate school at UCSD. I am an endocrinologist with a past in academic medicine and now work in clinical endocrinology with a particular interest in endocrine specialty drug development. I have two wonderful grown children (34 and 32). I have a wonderful Chesapeake Bay Retriever (browndogz of extraordinary beauty and intelligence!). I am very atheist, and am not a good fit for a woman who believes in a sky-daddy. I am also a type 1 diabetic of many years (NO complications!), and if shots or blood glucose testing is upsetting to you, best to move on.

I am kind, funny, and energetic. I love the great outdoors, and love trail running and swimming with my brown four-legged companion.

I moved back to California in 2015 to be close to my 90 yo father who is very frail with Parkinson's.
What I’m doing with my life
I nurtured both my kids throughout the formative years, and they are wonderful, warm, kind, and thoughtful, and out on their own. I joined an endocrine practice in San Luis Obispo county in 2015. I recently finished writing my first novel. I exercise regularly (principally distance running, but also love skiing, ultimate, scuba diving, and many more).
I’m really good at
I'm too humble to tell you I'm really good at anything. If you meet me, I'll let you decide!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm energetic. I've been told I'm "hyper", but I'm not - just energetic. I'm very kind and nurturing. I like to discuss matters in science. Here on OKC? Probably that I have a ball doing the sex tests! What does that say about me? I'm a normal guy, really! I am!
I have vitiligo, and have been losing the pigment on my face & hands for decades. I'm truly an ugly son of a bitch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books I think everyone should read (and might cure the toxicity of religion in humanity, ESPECIALLY back in Utah, where I lived for 14 great years...skiing & trail running! Stupid, just plain dumb, is rampant in Utah!) are Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" and his most recent, "The Greatest Show on Earth". Include in the critical list, Christopher Hitchens' "god Is Not Great". Get it? No need for sky-daddy believers to contact me. I don't really have a favorite movie, but I do love a lot of movies. I love hot, spicy food. I love to cook.
The six things I could never do without
1) My friends. Many are lifelong.
2) Dogs. If you don't like hair around the house, think about this!
3) Love. Makes the world go 'round.
4) Romance and sexuality. Not to arbitrarily distinguish from love (#3 above), but you know what I mean.
5) Nature. 'nough said, I trust! I'm a rabid environmentalist.
6) Insulin. I'd be dead without it!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science, nature, and the way things work. I love reading about and contemplating nature and the world/universe around us. I also like to think about travel, now planning my next dive trip. I also think about what a lucky son of a gun I am to have the family and wonderful children, lifelong friends, browndogz, health, etc. that I have.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night for me. Sometimes I'm home alone with my dog watching a movie. Sometimes I'm out with friends. What I do depends in part on the time of year, the people available to do something with, and what's happening locally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
All of the above could be private in some setting I guess. I'm pretty open about my life and my thoughts. I will admit I'm not wild about long hair on women in my age group or any age group.
You should message me if
You like what you read above, and you want to consider meeting. Ideally, I'd like to meet someone with high "match" and "friendship" scores and a low "enemy" score on the OKC scoring system. Go ahead and message me...I won't bite...hard (OK, I borrowed that from Austin Powers!)
GRIPE ALERT:
PS: Fuck the flagtards and modtards who took my dog photos down. Our pets are part of who we are, and potential dates benefit by that knowledge.
