For a quick summary, I am a recent Ph.D. graduate in neuroscience from the University of Florida, new community college professor (still pursuing an ideal post-doc) and recreational actor and amusement park aficionado.
I am exploratory, intense and passionate about what I enjoy, and am always sure about what I want or need-- I don't "follow the crowd"...unless I'm going that way anyway :) I am also respectful and non-judgmental which are also qualities I like to see in my friends or a potential partner.
I really enjoy exploring new places including amusement parks...I was a thrillseeker from about age 14 until 24...then my focus shifted from roller coasters to acting. Strangely, up until graduate school, I had been terrified of any sort of performing, but during my six years of pursuing my Ph.D. in neuroscience, I was simultaneously exploring the thrill of acting. In fact by the end of my graduate career, I had become so seasoned that I willingly committed to my first major role while knowing that I might very well end up performing on the same day as my oral defense.
I decided to see what match.com would bring, because I seem to have had my fill of exploring life on my own, and would like to shift to exploring more meaningful relationships.
I enjoy long, interesting conversations as part of getting to know someone new. Perhaps we could do that over Starbucks coffee...or from the top of the Kissimmee skycoaster-- Just kidding- that would be a little difficult ;)
By the way, I realize I have not yet fully suscribed and hence can't see who might be interested...this is because I am quite busy with certain things, so I probably wouldn't have much time to pay attention to who is interested just yet. But I do plan to suscribe once my schedule opens up a bit more. FYI, If I happen to get a lot of winks, I might be tempted to suscribe to see who they are ;)
