My self-summary
I was told by my parents that only a few months after my birth I was babbling the word "river" while pointing at it from the crib. It took me almost a year to utter anything else with such clarity.

While still a teenager I embarked on a self-styled journey that allowed me to take the less-travelled path to wisdom and spirituality.

As Fritjof Capra wrote "At a deep level, ecology merges with spirituality because the experience of being connected with all of nature, of belonging to the universe, is the very essence of spirituality.”

I studied fine arts at some of the most prestigious schools in Italy and New York City and twenty years later I had my own gallery in the heart of Manhattan. I then started working in the film industry in various capacities and went on to sell my work to many celebrities in the entertaining business.

My early bond with the natural world has only deepened in my adult life so my creative work focuses on exploring and revering the link between art and nature from a spiritual platform.

I've been lucky to know what I wanted to do very early but life can throw us a curveball when least expected and in recent years I went through a series of sobering events that skook my foundation and forced me to reassess what's important to me, both as an artist and as a human being.

Those who know me will say I'm a genuine person with strong beliefs and a big heart, which I believe to be true. I'm very choosy with the people I allow into my inner circle so it takes time for me to open up but when I do---I do it wholeheartedly and it means something.

I'm very imaginative and driven so I'm never without a project. I enjoy unplanned-spur of the moment adventures as much as relaxing and creating special moments with my partner.

I put great value on truthfulness so I'm a straight shooter, sometimes a bit blunt or too authentic, which isn't always appreciated but as the late Gore Vidal used to say I think that "Being true to yourself is knowing what you want to say, saying it, and not giving damn".

In regards to politics I consider myself a liberal in a broad spectrum but I'm also very much in line with small town values of a more conservative nature so if I had it my way I might be living in Walnut Grove from Little House on the Prairie.

I'm happy to say I've had a very interesting life that has brought me many rewards but I believe the simple joys of life are sometimes the most important ones so my kind of fun would be swimming in the open ocean, working in the garden or giving myself to an exiting project... designing or building something. Doing it with someone I love would turn any such moment into a postcard memory.

INTERESTS

I treasure the beauty , the mystery, and the magic of the great outdoors which is a fountain of joy and inspiration to me.

I also enjoy horseback riding, filmmaking, writing, stand-up comedy, music, driving the back roads, power tools, stone work, rough carpentry, architecture, spiritual growth, interior design, home building/restoration, landscaping, camping, vintage clothing---I tell everyone my favorite shop in New York City is the salvation army!

Outdoor concerts, working the land and raising animals, country French rural antiques, bird watching, wild flowers, trawling through flea-markets and junk yards to find old or unusual things, writing, wildlife rescue/conservation, classic cars---I hate new cars which have no design quality to them.
What I’m doing with my life
I survived a tornado, the loss of everything I treasured, the darkness of self-doubt and the frustration of having no control over the elements. I'm now looking for the glue to fix my broken compass so I can find the way home.
I’m really good at
Being outdoors and inhaling nature,
living a creative life,
taking risks,
being calm in the face of chaos,
juggling different tasks without dropping the ball,
guiding and inspiring others,
making use of my hands,
designing and creating visually-arresting habitats that blend with the the natural surroundings,
working with wood and stone,
building pools like the one on this link:
http://home-repair-remodeling-building.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/natural-pool-05.352221742_large.jpg
exploring native cultures,
I try to be very good at listening,
roasting peppers on an open fire---everyone loves them!
The first things people usually notice about me
I think different people see different things.

In most cases it is my youthful looks, good genes and a healthy lifestyle I guess... I've been told there's is some kind of energy that irradiates from me when I'm excited. I think of it as a natural high but some people have taken it for something else and asked where to buy it.

Other times it may be my sense of humor or child-like enthusiasm that gets noticed. I'm struck by the possibilities the world has to offer and I invite them all in.

In a work-related environment I'm very direct and my way of getting things done can be unorthodox at times. When people notice it makes them nervous.

Those I care about will see my soft, playful, and affectionate side which is harder to find but the best of me only comes out when I'm with someone I connect with intimately at an emotional, physical, and spiritual level.

When this happens it will be my unfading thirst for adventure, my funny bone which makes light of every difficult moment, or the passion that carries me when I put my mind and my heart on something that will be most noticeable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I mostly read fiction, non-fiction, and science. I'm avoracious reader so there's a long list. Milan Kundera "The unbearable lightness of being", Michael Ondaatje "The English Patient", Nikos Kazantsakis "Les Miserables", Paul Theroux "The Mosquito Coast", Arthur Golden "Memoirs of a Geisha" Charles Frazier "Cold Mountain" Isabel Allende "The House of the Spirits" . I'm not so much into poetry but I like Becquer and Neruda.

Films: I've written a screenplay and worked in the film industry as a scenic artist/set builder so I'm very much into film, particularly when every element in it works regardless of the genre but I prefer comedy, adventure, or a good drama with a strong storyline and well developed characters. I also enjoy documentaries that are informative and thought-provoking.

The Thin Blue Line, Cinema Paradiso, Chilly Scenes of Winter, My life as a dog, Amadeus, Funny Farm, Jeremiah Johnson, Heaven can Wait, Life is Beautiful, Jean de Florette, Sophie's Choice, Mountains of the Moon, A vampire' kiss, The Mosquito Coast, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, Scarface, Brubaker, Like Water for Chocolate, Reds, A New Leave, So fine, Someone few over the Cukoo's Nest, Out of Africa.

TV: CNN, documentaries, Nova Science, Natural Geographic.
The Discovery and History channels are my favorite. I like having a good laugh so I can't miss my favorite sitcom, Real Time, or SNL.

Food: I'm an adventurous eater but also a cautious one so I only eat good stuff. Healthy, if possible organic, local, and very fresh. I love ethnic cuisine, Japanese, Creole, Morrocan, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Mexican...

I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new dishes so I have a large collection of spices in my kitchen. I like making vegetable omelets, salads and throwing things on the grill. Using a machine or appliance that may blow up makes it more fun for a guy!

Sports: Canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, diving, boxing, karate, soccer, and tennis. On TV the sport I like watching the most is female figure skating. I think of it as the marriage of artistry, beauty, and sensuality which is a visual treat. If they sold it in powder I'd be hooked on it!

Travel: I enjoy exploring new cultures off the beaten path and my being fully versed in Spanish has been helpful. I've lived in various countries in Central/South America, Europe, and Asia.

Music: I can't be without good music. I enjoy classical (Schumann, Vivaldi, Bach, Paganini, Dvorak, Brahms etc.). Also film scores, opera, choral, celtic, folk, country, bluegrass, and classic rock... I love listening to a great singing voice...

The six things I could never do without
The great outdoors,
The proximity of a natural body of free flowing water,
My non-human companions,
Artistic expression in any way it manifests,
My freedom and individuality,
A dream---what's life without one?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How fragile and intricately beautiful the natural world is.

The worsening condition of our planet's ecosystems.
The progressive loss of civil liberties in the US.
The ever-present phenomenon Milan Kundera calls "the uglification of the world"

The last three are very sad so I don't think about them too often.
Most of the time my mind is busy creating the reality I want my life to be ...which is full of color.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't follow a set routine so there's no such thing for me. I could be going out with friends... catching a movie/concert, dropping by a comedy club, or unwinding with a wholesome meal and a good bottle of wine.

On a perfect night, any day of the week, I'll be up in the mountains ---the more remote the better, or lying down by the lake listening to them:

I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 40–60
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
I see myself as a renaissance mountain man so you should contact me if living with simplicity in a small country village, a secluded farm, or a nature retreat in the great outdoors as one of its many critters will be as inspiring and fulfilling as it would for me.

My ideal mate would be a positive thinker who's joyful, passionate, emotionally giving, and enjoys sharing her thoughts and feelings instead of keeping them inside.

Having an artistic vane, regardless of its focus, and looking for the funny angle of everything we experience in every day life will also be an asset.

I think a relationship is very much like a garden that needs constant nurturing and guardianship at both ends in order to thrive. I want to be with an adventurous, make-up-free, nature lover who will dig in the dirt with me to turn our life's journey into a beautiful garden.
