I am a politically progressive professor of business and public policy. I am considered by many to be a good teacher and an eclectic, well-read academic. I am very interested in history and sports. I am enthralled by and curious about science and nature. I love independent women who have a great smile and a twinkle in their eyes. Most importantly, I am an actively-caring parent of a wonderful middle school son. I value honesty as much as love. Of course I am interested in a woman for whom having a teenager in her life is an appealing one. And the idea of merging my family with someone who also has at-home kids is an inviting, if challenging, one.
