My name is Phil, and I am new to Houston. I just began my job as a Professor at Rice. I earned my Ph.D. in Statistics from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. I am looking to meet someone for marriage. People have described my personality using the following adjectives: kind, patient, genuine, compromising, and respectful. I am looking for someone whose friends would describe her personality in a similar light. I am growing in my Jewish observance and identity and would like to find someone with whom I can grow. I also would like to find someone who would describe herself as an intellectual. In my free time, I love to ski, run, spend quality time with family and friends, and to tell jokes.
