Hmmm the struggle to come up with a profile opener is real. :)
California native. Ivy Leaguer. Foodie. Confessed nerd. Confessed dog owner. Well-traveled. Competitive Cat 3 bike racer. 800 FICO score. Divorced years ago, no kids, alimony, etc.
I'm compassionate, determined, adaptable and self-aware, all wrapped up with a bow of good humor and light sarcasm.
I try to make my own luck, but I also revel in the serendipitous. I've found the best things in life often cannot be planned, even in a world where OKCupid filters exist. ;)
In a match, similar values and goals, respect, teamwork and that intangible chemistry are essential. But...the last thing I want to do is date my clone (sly OKCupid question reference there!). Let's savor and celebrate our differences!
I'm incredibly thankful to have friends of all ages that provide me with interesting and diverse experiences and perspectives on the world. I'm comfortable be it riding with collegiate cyclists, exchanging teaching ideas with professors, dressing down for a rave or rocking a suit at a museum opening. I am looking for someone who is similarly flexible, or at least doesn't judge someone who is! :)
Past life as an engin-nerd in computer science.
Know what you want and take the initiative
Believe life is about the journey
Feel that 6 foot 2 is your favorite height
Think nerds (people, or the candy) are cool
Wish Machu Picchu selfies were outlawed. :)
Understand what my username represents
Agree that you are only as young as you feel :D
