My brother lives in Pretoria and is the originator of the speedy comic and tv shows. I live in the US and was born here, but my dad was born in SA. I am passionate about life in general and am not "overboard" on any one thing. I love my family and like to do things with friends. I like skiing, scuba diving, travel, really good movies, siteseeing, motorcycling, eating at nice restaurants. I love my job where I am responsible for finding a market need in biotechnology and then developing new products to fit the need. I am not a workaholic though, not even close. I also am a college professor at the local community college where I mentor students in science and using science in business.
Since I run my own business, most days feel as though they are a day off. I can often get my work done in the evening if I want to play the next day. I like to get out and move. But it is not usually a routine. Sometimes I take a yoga class but still feel as though I am a beginner. I don’t think I make too big a fool of myself. It actually feels good to stretch, although my form needs loads of improvement. Winter and Spring I ski a lot.. Summer and Fall are more hard workouts, hiking, tennis, motorcycling, and cars.
When I go out, I like restaurants mostly and movies with an occasional concert or bar.
Number one, I am looking for great chemistry or karma with my partner. She should be sweet, caring, loving, passionate, amorous, but mostly just love me and want to be loved by me. She should be of at least average looks, but definitely in excellent physical condition.
I am highly spiritual, but not religious. I grew up in a 'born again' family and going to church several times a week. I rebelled as a teenager and in college studied Eastern religions and practiced transcendental meditation for several years. I think I was drawn to the Eastern religions because of their simplicity and their un-punishing philosophies. As a pharmaceutical company scientist, spirituality lessened and I was agnostic for a period. Now I am studying Astrology and the Eastern religions again. I believe there is spirit in all things. My current spirituality is probably most similar to Buddhist or Pagan beliefs, but I do not go out of my way to try to meet with others with the same beliefs. I do not require the help of others to help define my spirituality.
I have traveled a lot and want to go to a lot of new places and experience as many cultures as I can. I have been to Europe 6 times, Asia, South Africa, British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Belize, Mexico, all 48 lower States. My latest trip was to Turkey, Greece and Paris last June. Since then I have taken shorter trips to Chicago and Vegas.
I really like music but don't have to have music in my ear at all times. I like many kinds of music but can only listen to country for a short time.. Sometimes I listen to classical on the radio as background music. I really like dance music with a heavy beat. I like oldies, all of them 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. I like alternative music, but only some of it sounds good to me. I think part of that is because the oldies I hear are the classic oldies. Of the new music, only a few are destined to become classics. I felt the same when rap came out. There were some good songs that were fun to listen to, but a lot I did not care for. When I just listen to the classic raps, I like it. I have been a fan of reggae since the early Bob Marley stuff.
My simplest pleasure is my morning coffee. I like it strong and fresh made with the best coffee I can find. I usually use Starbucks whole beans which I grind fresh just before brewing. I pour a big mug and then I add some heavy cream to it to give it a great rich flavor. Lately I have been getting Nonni’s chocolate biscotti which I dunk into the coffee and have for breakfast. Mmmmmmm
