So what should I tell you about myself...I went to school in Boston for eleven years after which I spent the next four years teaching and doing mathematics research at the University of Pennsylvania and UC Berkeley (yes I am a nerd and proud of it:)). I won't try to explain what my work is on (unless you ask:)) except I will say I grow mathematical trees and work in universes where truth behaves differently.
My second favorite thing to do in the world (after mathematics) is to wrestle. I have competed for many years (18 total with 11 of those spent wrestling internationally for Great Britain) and was a volunteer assistant coach for the U. Penn team during my time there. While I have recently retired from competing internationally at the senior level, I still love to get on the mat any chance I can.
I am a big animal lover (all species). I have two cats at home and two dogs at home with my parents in DC.
I have traveled extensively throughout the world (although most of my travel has been for wrestling and has been to a forest just outside of Minsk). As for the best trip I have ever been on... all I will say is it involved about 10,000 balloons, a completely free McDonalds, and Tony Blair outside of an imported red British phone booth. But, if you want to know more you will have to send me an e-mail:)
As for what I am looking for...I would like to meet someone who is strongly motivated by what they do, but who cares deeply for the wellbeing of everyone around them. Someone who can make me laugh as well as someone who will be able to challenge me in our discussions. Also, someone who loves animals and who can stand my nerdiness would be good (and it would be even better if you could join in:))
Lastly, my faith is an important part of how I live my life and how I view the world. It would be nice to find someone who believes in something bigger than themselves (even if we disagree on the specifics).
Well, that is the 30 second spiel on me. If you would like to know more, just drop me an e-mail. (Oh, and if you do, please post a picture so I can see who I am writing to. Thanks:)).
