My self-summary
Although I would much rather talk about you, I realize that I must abide by the rules of the mating ritual. Essentially, my entire sex appeal and self-worth is reduced to a picture and a few paragraphs; a brutal but honest assessment. I realize that I’m not about to win any Oscars, but I do know that I can fill a lady’s heart with laughter, wonder, and love.

If you're intrigued, read on; if not, it's all good. I'm an intelligent, well-educated, widely-traveled (42 countries), financially-secure, physically and emotionally fit, successful professional; I travel well, I look good in a suit, and I won't embarrass you in front of your family; I've dated a rock star; I can fix things in your house; I'll hike and camp pretty much anywhere with you; I'll manage to make you a fan of my sports teams; you'll develop a passion for random historical things and places; your friends will like me, and I'm a damn good cook (especially Asian food); I'm also a romantic who loves to treat a woman well. Do I have flaws? Yes, at times I'm too much of an idealist, I procrastinate, I'm always five minutes late (unless it's work, surgery, or a first date), I watch football all day on Sundays (although women have been known to entice me away from the couch, and it's only 17 days a year!), I'm a perfectionist, etc.

If I haven't convinced you yet, consider a plaque that my students once gave me. It reads: "The single, good-looking, straight, emotionally-stable, financially-secure, intelligent guy award" - with my name written underneath. At times, young people just might be more perceptive than we think.

I can honestly say that I'm a good guy. I've had some bad luck with love, but hope springs eternal. Simply put: if the chemistry is right, you will make me want to be a better person. Somehow it will all make sense.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm often asked that question, but the simple answer is: living. The question implies that one is headed towards a specific goal, but if one really knew what the future held, then what would be the point of our existence?
I’m really good at
Learning, listening, parallel parking, traveling, scuba diving, being humbled, solving problems, being a sports fan, giving sensual massages, and keeping plants alive.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, my integrity . . . and my worldly personality.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Brothers Karamozov, The Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game; Siddartha, The Great Gatsby, Sports Illustrated magazine, Shakespeare; anything by Kurt Vonnegut; and Playboy magazine.

Food: having truly tasted an incredible variety of cuisines, I can say that all food has its time and place, but spicy food is the best, especially from southeast Asia.

Music: Grateful Dead, jazz, blues, and one can't forget the King: Elvis Presley!

NPR Radio!
Six things I could never do without
1. Tivo
2. Recycling
3. My martini mixer
4. Democracy
5. A woman's touch
6. My passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why other people do the things they do . . . .
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Towards the end of the Cold War, I managed to get arrested at an East German border crossing. I had to sign a nine-page confession admitting that I "was an agent of capitalism" and an "enemy of socialism" . . . And I drink my martinis stirred, not shaken!!
