ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

--I have a very dry sense of humor.

--I love a great movie; you can get totally lost in them, and there's nothing like the feeling of having a great dream while you are conscious.

--Yes, I like me my sports (definitely the only guy on the site who says that). I have to do something active (gym workout or golf or a long walk/hike) everyday or I go stir crazy.

--I read way too many political blogs when I should be working. But it's not my fault; whoever came up with this model of being at work for 8 hours or more a day was a dumbass. A big dumbass.

--I'm not the sort of guy who is going to swoop in and take you to 5 foreign countries in six months or grandiose river rafting expeditions. Nor do I own a motorcycle. I like interpersonal adventures and getting dinner and watching films and hanging out and really connecting with someone.

--If you had told me five years ago that I'd be doing what I am now and enjoying my life way more, the five-years-ago me would be flabbergasted.

--I think that college football manifests some the best aspects of American culture (energy, regional variation, carnival atmosphere, passion, a flowering of different styles of doing things) and pro football manifests the worst (conformity, bureaucratic corporate homogeneity, ritualized violence, obsession with work). College football is a collection of good microbrews, and pro football is Bud Light.

--I've been finally getting into Mad Men. It's the best TV show I have ever seen.

--I know that you "love to travel." For the love of God, I KNOW. Tell me something about you.

For fun:

I like movies, restaurants, exploring new neighborhoods/parts of the city, golfing, and spending time with friends. Of course, who DOESN'T like spending time with friends? Nonetheless, it is in fact the truth.

Favorite hot spots:

Hara Sushi kicks butt over on Wilshire. The Kitchen in Silver Lake has great food and a cozy vibe. Molly Malone's on Fairfax is what I like in a dive bar. Rick's Cafe in Casablanca is where I'd really prefer to hang out, but that seems unlikely.

Favorite things:

Mad Men is the best TV show ever, though Six Feet Under, Community, The Office, The Wire, Seinfeld, and Curb Your Enthusiasm are all outstanding. I love films, particularly Stanley Kubrick and Woody Allen, plus anything new and interesting.

Last read:

Finally read Moneyball, Michael Lewis's great book about a renegade baseball front office. You don't have to like sports at all to dig it; it excavates how groupthink can become remarkably misguided and how difficult it can be to push back against.

BACKGROUND/VALUES:
Ethnicity:
White / Caucasian
White / Caucasian

My ethnicity is as boringly middle class white as it gets.

Faith:
Agnostic
Agnostic, Atheist, Spiritual but not religious

I don't think anyone really knows what is going on here. I am a fan of Joseph Campbell, who argued that all the world's religions were metaphorical expressions of the needs of psyche as it moves through the universal stages and cycles of life.

Education:
PhD / Post Doctoral
Bachelors degree, Graduate degree, PhD / Post Doctoral

I received a doctorate in U.S. History from Northwestern. Was planning to be a college professor, but I got over it. Long story. Professor is one of those jobs that looks cool from the outside. Up close it kinda stinks.
