I am a professional with a reasonably intellectually challenging job. I am financially secure but am trying to live a life of ideas and experiences rather than one of shiny metal objects. I hope to further my education in the future although I have no definite plans yet. I'm thinking something mathematical, it is the language of the universe after all :)
When I don’t have family or work commitments on the weekends I like to head to the mountains as I’m sure you gathered by the photos. I do other things but it seems the only time I have my photo taken is when I’m on a mountain.
I haven’t found a label that accurately describes my politics but mostly I believe in the enlightenment and my opinions tend to follow the data.
Books I have read and liked include Steppenwolf, Catch 22, Cat's Cradle, Crime and Punishment, Brief History of Time, Cryptonomicon, Guns Germs and Steel, and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
My favorite musician is Tom Waits and think that he gave the best Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction speech ever! I play the guitar. I don't claim to be good at it but if you listen real hard you might hear something that sort of sounds like REM's country feedback or Let Her Go by passenger. Why those songs you ask, mainly because they had a decent melody, are fairly simple to learn and i found a great teacher on youtube.
I am looking for someone who is educated. Someone who has something more interesting to say than ‘no pic no response’. Someone who likes hiking and walking. Someone who reads. Someone who isn't afraid of silence. Someone whose main recreational activity doesn't involve the mall. Someone who doesn't complain about petty things. Someone who is as confused about the meaning of life as i am and would like to discuss it :) And I think compassionate women are very attractive.
If you think we might have something in common don't be afraid to contact me.
