My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Sao Paolo to Italian parents, I spent a few years in Italy before growing up in New York. I went to NYU and lived in the East Village for many years. I am now an EV expat living in Astoria.

Professionally I have been teaching – which I love. I learn so much from my students and their amazing stories everyday.

I’ve traveled all over the world scuba diving (I’m even a certified instructor), taking photographs (including underwater photography in beautiful locations like the Galapagos Islands), and exploring. I don’t define myself by my job or travels...but I do believe in having a sense of exploration and wonder.

One of the great joys of my life is my daughter. She spends most weekends with my ex, who I have a cordial relationship with.

These days I like museums, strolls around NYC neighborhoods and hanging out in the summer at great outdoor cafes. I also love beaches (natural for a scuba diver) – for instance, I frequently visit a dear friend in St. John.

A former club kid, I still love to dance, and do so from time to time. Staying home, making a meal and cuddling on the couch are also great.

When I love, I love deeply. Life’s too short to play it safe. I have amazing friends; many go back over 25 years. I’m looking for something that might last.

I value intelligence and passion. Life is all about challenging yourself - and having fun in the process...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at getting lost, making morning caffe e latte, staying up too late, pushing the snooze button in the morning, playing card games, finding weird creatures underwater, cooking, being ten minutes late to everything, cuddling, and kissing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have eclectic tastes in music; lately listening to Scott Orr, Pandit, Still Corners, Marianne Faithful, Thievery Corp, along with fun dance around the house music.

I read a wide range of fiction and non-fiction. A favorite from my childhood is Tolkien. Scanning my bookcase, you’ll find Michael Chabon and Umberto Eco, Angela Carter and E. E. Cummings, Neil Gaiman and Mary Oliver…

I love to cook. I make a mean mushroom risotto, and yummy tiramisu.

I appreciate good films (ranging from Roman Holiday to Pulp Fiction.) I like all kinds of movies, from Indie/foreign to sci-fi...The Sunshine theater is one of my favorites in the city. Though a smart TV isn’t bad either…

Some TV faves and guilty pleasures: Homeland, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and The Walking Dead. My friends keep telling me to start watching Breaking Bad.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Morning caffe e latte
the macro lens on my underwater camera
the ocean
dangly earrings
the feel of pages turning on a great book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Interesting math problems, why everyone lives in Brooklyn, where the good dancing in NYC is, how to find cheap airline tickets to faraway places...oh, right, and social justice and the dismal state of our environment. And chocolate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
varies widely...from exploring a new neighborhood or NYC joint to chilling at home with good wine...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm way better in person than in emails/texts. Is it too old-fashioned to want to build an actual relationship through less virtual communication?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone who is warm, intelligent, grounded, and kind, with a sense of humor. You are solid at your core, but have some edge in you. I prefer to date relatively close to my own age, 40's. I tend to like brainy affectionate playful sexy types. A big heart is a huge plus.

I’m looking for a long-term relationship with a partner/friend/lover. I’m independent, but I want to be with someone who wants to share his life.

Ideally you live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens, and you have the time and interest to date. You are looking for a genuine connection. And are open to the possibility of a relationship if the stars align and all that.

I’m not looking to get married tomorrow but I want to date someone who is emotionally and physically available. We've all had our hearts broken, but I'm hoping you still have the capacity to put it on the line once in a while.
