ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Biologist, and fellow Alabaman, E.O. Wilson likes to say, "I'm a Southern boy who moved up North to make a living." Well, I'm a Southern boy who moved West! I'm not a biologist, though, so for me it's a career in animation with an interest in the arts and sciences (in my case, robotics).

Anyway, before moving out here, I lived in Northern Virginia--as in, I lived in the 'burbs of Washington DC. There I was a defense contractor with a cyber security company. The work was great, but as with any restless spirit, I was ready to find my way back home, to California. My unorthodox values and less-than-traditional outlook are more inline here than back South, plus retiring my coats has been a boon to my heart. But that is generic; who am I really?

A friend of mine once told me about a woman he met at Oxford who would always explain that she did not believe in God but she did believe in irony and whim. She strode through Oxford University campus with the self-assurance that whatever she anticipated in life was likely to never be quite so bad (or good) as she expected. So, rather than fear life's many agonies, she saw them as tiny ironies we learn when thinking there is some "Cosmic Plan" or that we are entitled simply because... we exist. The whimsy stems from knowing this early on and enjoying your life anyway. It is a simple observation, but it sums me up well.

I believe in living my life expecting the opposite of what I actually expect. If it should go the way as I expected, great--if not, that is also great, because I expect to be a better person regardless of the outcome. The whim in that is I am not *afraid* to try something different. Life stems from the chances you took, so I take chances in hopes of becoming a better person from the go. It was that sort of reasoning that got me to move here without knowing anyone or having a job. In the end, everything turned out great, and I haven't a single regret. Most people are afraid to try, but I am not. That doesn't mean I'm reckless, mind you, but willing to roll the hard six. (That's a gambling term for you native LA folk ;-)

And so, now I am on Match.com. After almost two years in LA, I am ready for the Next Step. So, I decided to take the initiative and find the Right One. Rather than put too fine a point on it, I will say the "right one" will be very smart, accomplished, self-confident, quick with a joke and easy on the smiles. I have many passions, the chief being animation and the arts, so someone with interests she'd love to share with me would be great. I'm always open to new ideas, so don't be afraid to be different or opinionated.

I'm not afraid of strong, opinionated women. I WANT a strong, opinionated woman. See? I told ya: unorthodox.

Besides a bullish temper and a willingness to cuss me out if ever I'm wrong (which will never happen as I never am--kidding, kidding!), I want someone who takes care of herself, has empathy for others, and enjoys going out and exploring what our great city has to offer. A woman seeking a serious relationship partner is a must.

One last thing, I really enjoy philosophy; I was a member of a philosophy club back in DC. I miss discussing life's meaning, so if you happen to like that kind of thing great, but if not that's fine. It's not a deal breaker either way. I've no other preference that isn't already explained elsewhere, so that just about sums it up.

Maybe I am asking too much from an online dating service. Well, like another great Alabaman, my grandmother tells it, nothing makes a failure but a try.

For fun:

I like doing lots of things for fun, but cycling is a great stress reliever for me. For a relief of my mind, I find drawing buildings for fun. It's a career escape to be sure, but whoever said you can't do your job AND have fun at the same time?!?

Favorite hot spots:

Since discovering the Natural History Museum and LACMA, I've been addicted. I'm a regular volunteer for both now. Before moving out here, I loved DuPont Circle in DC. Nice bookstores lined the streets and fantastic hole-in-the-walls.

Favorite things:

Really old books; Woody Allen films; art and science museums, any and all animation, basketball, stimulating conversation with interesting people, and a good meal with said interesting people.

Last read:

Spurred on by my best friend, I have been reading the science fiction novels of Robert Heinlein. The last was "Job: A Comedy of Justice" (so-so) and "Waldo" (clever, imaginative). Now, I'm reading "Time Enough for Love."
