I'm a Dutch guy living in Sunnyvale working for google. I only recently came to the bay area.
Previously I was a theoretical physicist at UCLA and before that at a particle accelerator in the Chicago area (Fermilab). Although I made the switch to industry from academia I still consider myself a scientist and will always be interested in learning the fundamental ways nature works.
In my spare time I like playing sports or going to bars with friends. Basically I enjoy everything social. Playing volleybal or frisbee with friends or going to restaurants/concerts/..., I will have fun. I like box training it's very relaxing, hitting the bag is a great stress relieve :)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
There is plenty to do. A nice dinner is always golden because it presents a nice setting to get to know each other. A second date could be more action packed and fun.
