Grew up in Germany, was an exchange student for 6 months in Westfield, MA in 2006, now I'm an ETH mechancial engineer working in finance (venture capital, to be precise). Don't be afraid: We are no suit people at all (but if you're one, I can handle you!).
I like all kinds of mountain sports and enjoy taking risks and seeking adventures there. If I'm not in the mountains, I can just as easily sprawl out on the couch for an entire day and enjoy reading my big stack of both worldly and fictional literature, or watch movies (preferably with an independent = non-mainstream touch, even though I know both Star Wars and Star Trek in and out). I recently indulged in buying a pair of two high-end speakers; I generally like almost everything you hear on (website hidden) (I love that radio station, be sure to check it out).
