My self-summary
I'm a guy who likes a day filled with activity, laughter, and aesthetic enjoyment. Often deep in thought, but generally a light-hearted person. Proud dork. A sense of humor and silliness is refreshing. Just as happy talking about the physics of a supernova as about the artistic development of David Bowie. Love to laugh, frolic, seize the day, get out of the apartment.

I love living in St. Louis - sometimes when I'm listening to KDHX and driving around I get chills. Life is good. I'm looking for someone to have adventures and spend quality time with, and eventually build a long-term relationship.

I'm fascinated by so much in the world, and find beauty everywhere, so I'm looking for a woman who shares my enthusiasm for learning and discovering. Of Montreal sang about "a lover with soul power." Someone who loves to laugh, and loves the arts and the outdoors. There must be kindred spirits out there.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an environmental scientist working on various pollution cleanup projects around the St. Louis area. It's a really cool job. Eventually I would like to be in a position where I can promote clean energy and sustainable practices. I briefly taught high school chemistry, and could go back to education one day. Outside of my job I love making music.
I’m really good at
Jeopardy and whistling. I think that's it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I make good eye contact.

The six things I could never do without
My piano, books, showers, light cotton fabrics, a deck of cards, patios, belly laughs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lucky we are to even exist on this beautiful planet with oxygen and abundant liquid water, whether I should buy a house or keep renting, how I would explain the difference between imply and infer if I was an English teacher. I just read "On Bullshit" by Harry Frankfurt, so lately a lot about the nature of truth and the various modes of dishonesty.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a party with friends, a bar, a concert, a movie, board game night, or at home reading a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once spent $5,000,000 to hold a seminar on reincarnation. But what the hell, you only live once.
You should message me if
You want to.
