Here are a few broad brushstrokes to my psychological self-portrait. I generally avoid swiping women off their feet, as I consider such practice uncivilized. Instead, I prefer to entertain them with a humorous or philosophical conversation, depending on the mood and your idea of entertainment. I really enjoy being a dad (a reference letter to that effect is available upon request from my 6-year-old daughter, in exchange for a lollipop) and have been told that I am “good with kids” in general. Despite being virtually non-observant, I have a strong sense of Jewish identity and a long-standing interest in our culture and heritage. What else? I am fairly laid-back, honest, and reliable. I love my work (research in organic chemistry) and anything else that inspires me to be creative, including various hobbies, cooking and home improvement.
