My self-summary
Forty-something dad, sadly not living with my inspirational daughter. Love the simple things in life; good food cooked carefully, the sound of wind blowing in the trees, walking by moving water. But I also love the complexity of modern life - I'm not yearning for some unattainable idyll. I live for music, especially (but not exclusively) classical, for the emotions it evokes in me. Similarly sport can leave me exalted, or exhausted, though I don't waste my time sitting in front of the telly watching. I'm an academic but not a didactic bore. My mathematical and analytical nature does not rob the world of its mystery, it lets me appreciate the deeper wonder of everything around us. Above all I hope I'm lively, interested in everything, fun to be with.

I am honest, compassionate, and fun-loving
What I’m doing with my life
Working, or is it playing? Dunno, luckily I get paid to do what I love

Spending time with my daughter - wonderful times

Trying to get fit again (slow going) and to remember how to play the guitar (excruciating!)
I’m really good at
Remembering useless stuff, then using it to solve problems - not so useless then!

Failing to follow recipes but managing to make something edible

Helping people to find the self-confidence they need to do what they want (or need) to do
The first things people usually notice about me
My wonky nose? Or maybe my smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
No point giving a list, it'd be neither comprehensive nor comprehensible. I enjoy things that provoke a response, that seem honest. So "reality" shows are out.

I'm a life-long vegetarian and enjoy cooking - always con brio if not necessarily de gustibus...
Six things I could never do without
Family & Friends

Human contact

Sharp kitchen knives

Guitar, amp & effects

Radio 3

Sculling boat/rowing machine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My research, how to make complex things interesting, the awesomeness of my daughter, and lots of Whys and Hows
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleepy... But still up for whatever mischief I might happen upon ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think my OkCupid profile makes me seem like a right boring geek, but not sure how best to change it. Help?
You should message me if
You think we may laugh a lot together.
The two of us
