Hi! My name is Edwin. I'm a creative, passionate person on a journey through life. I'm looking for someone to accompany me as I explore life, but also someone who can take me to new places, both metaphorically and in real life.

Please reach out to me; I'm a laid back and friendly person. I don't have a paid membership to this site right now, so feel free to connect with me via LinkedIn or drop me a line at at Edwin at EdwinClamp dot com.

I'm the father of two amazing children, 9 and 11. I'm separated and enjoying discovering my new life.

I work as a financial analyst, but have done many things over my life from tech entrepreneur, to CEO, to professor, to engineer to food scientist.

One of my creative outlets is gastronomy. I do everything from baking bread and pastries, cooking many different cuisines, fermenting stuff, butchering, curing meat like prosciutto etc., making things like wine, cider and beer, making cheese,...on and on. A special thing I do is make chocolate from scratch...from the bean.

I really enjoy gardening, both vegetable and ornamental. In general I like building things, which usually means home projects. Right now I'm building a pizza oven.

I have many hobbies, but especially enjoy riding bikes (local rides, rail trails, bike touring), painting, and pottery at the moment. I'm trying to get into sailing, and have a little sailboat, but it is hard to go because I live in the mountains and there aren't many lakes around.

I have many former hobbies that I would not mind reviving, if I had the right person to go with. Rock climbing, white water kayaking, mountain biking, scuba diving, etc. I used to be an avid caver (horizontal and vertical), but I think those days are over for the more extreme stuff.

I was born oversees and have lived on three different continents. I love traveling to other countries. I think last time I had counted I had visited about 30 countries, which means that there are about 220 more to visit. I would be completely down for having a travel partner since travel is always better when shared with someone. If you have an exciting idea for a trip let's talk. When I travel I tend to enjoy the food scene, culture, nature, history, and the vibe of the place.

I used to be quite religious (protestant), but have moved away from that. Many call me a metaphysical philosopher and I am writing a book on what I see is a new philosophy of life (the quantum worldview) that is emerging in society.

I've had a colostomy since 2005 but haven't really met anyone else with a colostomy. I had colorectal cancer at a very young age.

Again,, just reach out to me, I'm friendly and I don't bite. Ciao!
