My self-summary
***FYI: I'm not an A-list member so only a message will get my attention.***

Hmmm the struggle to come up with a profile opener is real. :)

The Basics:
California native. Ivy Leaguer. Foodie. Burner. 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! :)
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching and research in finance. In pursuit of work that contributes to the betterment of humankind (for reals!).

Past life as an engin-nerd in computer science.
