My self-summary
Looking for a brainy, cheerful woman to bounce around ideas and appreciate life with. I'm often deep in thought, but generally a light-hearted person. A sense of humor and silliness is refreshing. Just as happy talking about the physics of a supernova as about the artistic development of James Brown or Roy Liechtenstein, etc. My tastes are usually outside the mainstream. Love to laugh, frolic, seize the day, get out of the apartment.

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. Someone who loves to laugh, and loves the arts and the outdoors. 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. Also I could play cards all day, especially euchre and canasta.
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, the front porch, belly laughs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If there really were doo-wop groups on street corners in the 50's, when we will discover life outside our solar system. I'm betting we find a planet with oxygen in its atmosphere within 20 years.
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. I can't see who "likes" me, so send a message if you want to get through.
