I was raised in Canada by Europeans. I arrived here for grad school in 2001 and stayed to work in finance. I like to kitesurf (especially in Brazil), read(New Yorker and NYTimes constantly distract me from books), travel(anywhere), ski/snowboard(Europe good), watch foreign film (luckily Angelika is right around the corner), play tennis (WSH), explore foreign cultures(did it for 2 years straight once), view art/visit museums/galleries/au ctions(Neue Galerie is great), discuss current events and miscellaneous theories, take photos, eat with friends, dinner parties, hobbies, projects, almost anything "international." You: intelligent, elegant, passionate, curious, cosmopolitan/interna tional, sense of purpose, you have an inner (or outer) geek/nerd, but are still sexy in you own way....or just a desire to embody these traits. I believe we all want the same things, such us humor, kindness, fun, etc., so I won't list them (oops). All the emailing/texting/pho ne tag doesn't seem to help peel back the onion on who someone really is, so let's just take a risk and meet...life is too short. Things are best discovered live anyway, most of success is serendipity mixed with hard work, and chemistry should be unmediated. Let's have some fun.
