I'm a well-educated professional looking for more from life. I’m a chemist by training, but work as an analyst now. I’m not doing what I thought I would do when I was in school. But I like it more than I expected. Life certainly has a way of surprising you, doesn't it?
I’m looking for someone to enhance my life, someone to share experiences with. I don’t have a certain set of criteria. I’ll know if you are right for me if it feels right. I’ve met a few fascinating people and I’ve learned to keep a very open mind.
Describing yourself is hard, but as my name indicates, I’m driven by curiosity. I would love to chat with you about science and technology, sports, pop culture or which Jane Austen book is the best (I’m going with Pride and Prejudice). I am a great conversationalist as well a listener.
When I get out of the house I’m more driven by who I am with, than what I am doing. That isn’t to say I don’t have interests, I do (see more below), but the right company can make anything interesting.
I have two wonderful children that I love (14 and 10). I'm very comfortable if you also have children.
I look forward to meeting many of the interesting people on this website, and good luck to you whatever you do.
I just got back from a trip with the kids to Las Vegas and California. We saw lots of shows, hiked at Zion National Park and visited family in California. *Sigh* I wish it had been longer.
When it comes to my future my focus is being a better me. That means getting better at my job, better as a father and friend and ensuring I have some time for myself.
When it comes to films I tend to prefer action, comedy and horror flicks. The last three movies I saw in the theater were X-Men Apocolypse, Captain American Civil War and The Jungle Book (I warned you about the comics). I get my share of dramas, but that is usually when I'm in the mood. Lincoln, for example was an absolutely fabulous movie!
I don't watch that much television aside from sports (and then not as much as I want). I don't even have cable or satellite TV! I got Netflix about two years ago (was I the last one?) and I think I've seen most of the movies I want to. Still some good TV though. I had HBO Now for a while and I've been spending some time catching up on stuff I missed. I absolutely *LOVED* The Wire. Going through Game of Thrones and Band of Brothers now and True Detective is coming soon.
Music is usually the radio with a mix of Pop, Alternative and Hip-Hop. It may surprise you to know know what over 75% of the albums I own are hip-hop (but, to be fair, the last album I bought was probably 15 years ago). I still like hip-hop, but have included more pop and alternative stuff as well. I also like musicals as well, in particular live. I have seen 5 musicals so far this year (Matilda, Something Rotten, School of Rock, Kinky Boots and Hello Dolly) and I'm taking the kids to Phantom of the Opera in August.
Food is awesome. I wouldn't call myself a foodie (I don't even know how to define that), but I do love to eat. My favorites are Chinese, Mexican and Indian. I love dim sum on a Sunday morning. Recently my son has gone through an experimentation phase so I have cooked live crabs (that was an adventure), eel (purchased live at the store), squid (didn't work out well) and most recently lobster (much easier to cook than I expected). I had a blast doing them all, and I'm looking forward to trying some new stuff at home. I really need to get better with sides and vegetables though, that is my weakness (well that and presentation, I'm not an artist).
