I am an academic and a scientist. I recently moved to the Midwest from New England, where I lived the past 8 years, but I am actually from Los Angeles. I would like to meet a vibrant, active fun loving person for dating and maybe a longer term relationship. I love music (classical, jazz, rock, punk, noise) and play guitar. My favorite movies include Andrei Rublev and Ctalker by Tarkovsky. I have two wonderful boys (ages 9 and 10) from a previous marriage who live in Boston but spend their vacations (spring, summer, winter) with me here in Iowa. I love hiking, nature, and art.
