My self-summary
[I'd at least consider living anywhere--though Berkeley's not so bad, only 3% of the voters here chose Trump. (I know, I need to go to a purple state where I can do more good. ;>)]
You've touched on an intellectual with passion galore, a tender
alpha male with a yen for laughter. My vocations are social justice-- both Republican smiting and being a successful(enviro /right livelihood) for-profit entrepreneur. My avocations are legion---sea kayaking, independent cinema, the Blues, off the beaten path travel etc.

A South African pop star had her security guards haul me on stage with her at The World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg and sang to the 5000 people there, "Who said white men can't dance"!

With a lover I have an affectionate & ultra-playful side that
manifests itself very noticeably. Committed to great emotional
communication(but not a compulsive processor). I've got some East Coast Jewish intensity (even though I grew up next to a farm)-not at all neurotic, I'm just more incisively analytical,
intellectually challenging(but non-contentious) & generally
inquisitive about almost everything in the universe than most
folks. At the same time, I'm frequently sardonically or
slapstickally funny in that it's in the genes kinda way. And
I've imbibed just enough New Age Kool Aid to love spiritually
communing with a lover by opening our hearts deeply to one another, spending languorous hours & hours in the delectable physical uniting of our bodies, taking occasional visits together to wilderness hot springs etc.

An ideal relationship (to me) has no secrets. Exquisitely direct
AND sensitive communication. Celebration of every day. Spiritual dedication to never taking each other for granted. Continuous growth of all kinds.
There's no substitute for deep intimacy.
It's the sine qua non for profound happiness.
I've learned to offer myself, without reserve, to the right person. I've also learned the importance of common values in discerning whether or not someone is that right person.

I am tender yet alpha, funny, and a bit brainiacal(does NOT rhyme
What I’m doing with my life
Designing better civic engagement tools to let Americans have more influence on their elected officials. These days helping Bernie Sanders' campaign in some indirect ways and working to elect mini-Bernie & Bernadette Sanderses to state and local offices around the USA. Starting green/sustainable enterprises(e.g. co-founder largest eco-friendly paper co.in US, I'm the currently inactive unknown partner ;>))

Plotting fun. Having fun.
I’m really good at
Hhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmm. Well. When I was 13 years old I memorized the names, voting records and political demography of the states/districts of all 535 members of Congress. I'm been tracking this stuff ever since and have never personally met anyone who knows more about the subject. I solemnly promise you that following the individual and collective activities of Members of Congress is the sole form of masochism I engage in.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first is that I'm curious about almost everything. The second is that in conversation I can sneak up on 'em suddenly and make 'em laugh --like a sneeze, but funnier.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I can, do &/or cheerfully would read, watch, listen to,nosh, dance and play at everything on the face of the planet that DOESN'T involve golf, trashy romance novels, OR ingesting something that can't definitively be ascribed as belonging to a specific animal(e.g. salami, I mean it COULD have been your Aunt Trudy who they were supposed to cremate, right?).
Six things I could never do without
My physical health.
Oteolaryngological snackology.
Access to election statistics.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Designing better civic engagement tools to let Americans smack around Congress, as noted above. How to overcome economic obstacles to widespread adoption of lower carbon footprint energy sources. Dreaming up alternative species for my sci-fi stories. Fun of all kinds. Naughtiness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Devouring life like a Tyrannosaurus Rex between-meal-snacking on a Brontosaurus.....or just reading a book if it's been a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Women have a tendency to rave about my hands. I find it pleasing and embarrassing at the same time. (I mean is this because I do an insufficient amount of honest labor? ;>)
You should message me if
You've got brains/heart/social conscience/integrity with artesian wells (or at least a small pond) of serenity at your core. I care a lot about only 5 attributes-and that's really it---playful(I regularly dance around the office singing DR. Seuss songs and scandalizing my much more serious 22 year old assistant),sweet, brainy (I'm Mensa eligible--though not nerdy enough to join-- & need a mate whose neurons can sashay occasionally even if they don't jitterbug), sexy (to me), and a strong sense of integrity.

Beyond that you could be a taxi driver or a physicist, rich/poor, your hobbies/food tastes--none of these matter very much to me. The ultimate connection would be a delicious loofah-like stimulation of every pore of each other's cerebral, spiritual, sexual & moral beings. Ideally our chemistry together would get us kicked out of hell for being too sweet & out of heaven for being too wanton. But as long as there's a basic attraction and we can share a fun night at the movies and discuss the world over the Sunday papers & good coffee, bliss should pervade the land. ;=)

Together we're capable of co-constructing a luminous interdependence, complete with eventual progeny.

Those potential kids are the sole reason I seek a somewhat younger mate-I think women of all ages are attractive. Up until a month ago my dad still worked as a scientist at age 98 and rode his bicycle daily--- I myself would like to be considered by women who would still like to have children.
I hope you find love on your journey or whatever else it is that you seek.
The two of us
