ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

...so for my birthday (mid-April), I'm officially back on Match.com, I suppose on the positive note, this means we can say I'm not a quitter.

Having had a great time living the single life - traveling, camping, expeditions to strange places - I find myself ready to dedicate a sizable portion of my time finding a life partner.

I'm a little on the side of going 'slow' and getting to know someone for a while until we find that spark. I don't want to 'just be with someone' as a compromise, the goal is to find that person who makes the heart skip a beat and time slows down - yes, like in those chick-flick/RomComs that no guy ever watches.....right...

I'm looking for a single woman (maybe between 28 and 43 y/o) who is smart, confident, ambitious, fit and looking for a like-minded compatible partner. Outside of this, I think would be a bit too picky for just getting to know someone new, so I'll leave it there for now. Race and nationality are really not an issue for me, although, unlike Captain Kirk, I prefer women from Earth. ...so yes, I tell a few bad jokes from time to time, so a sense of humor is a requirement.

I'm new to the DC area, recently moved here from Colorado in August to take a fellowship in science technology policy. I just finished my PhD dissertation in Ecology and Chemical/Biological Engineering (renewable energy in developing countries - I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematics, then various grants and scholarships sent me to do 2 masters degrees and an international law degree).
I'm hoping this checks off the intelligent component, although, I have to admit, some of the dumbest people I know, I met in higher ed - so maybe you'll have to assess this yourself.

Having been mostly raised on a small family farm, common sense is kind of my specialty and being down to Earth is in a pretty key part of that. I've never smoked (anything) or done any drugs, although I enjoy a drink here and there and some wine is always a welcome dinner complement.

I am single and I've never been married and don't have any kids. I've done a lot of work with youth from teaching skiing/snowboarding in Colorado, Washington and California to teaching swimming, gymnastics, horseback riding and other skills that I know I'm going to have kids in my life some day, depending on how the partner situation works out - either adoption or foster parent if I don't have my own.

Clearly, I'm an outdoors kind of person, so please be willing/interested in hiking, camping, traveling (domestically and internationally) - going back to the kind of person I'm looking for (confident, ambitious, fit), this also means leading/initiating some activities.

Of course, it can't all be fun, games and taking over the world, so we can dress up and stay in for dinner and a movie or dress down and hit the town every so often, too.

Hopefully you are looking for someone like me - if you are, I'm certainly looking for someone like you.

Living the best un-scripted life I can.
I currently shifting from work on post-disaster/conflict development in under-served countries to a little bit slower pace (aka - increasing stability, yet maintaining excitement levels)...I like to travel a lot and sometimes find myself in sketchy parts of the world during the sketchiest times. I love to travel; made it to every continent except one (guess which one) during grad school...probably more fun than most - and a little bit scary at times.I also teach university math, statistics and political science.

I'm a fairly active guy and recently started thinking to get back into some things I haven't had the time to do - more swimming, hiking, road trips, maybe another ultra marathon in the next year.
