I was born a lefty and therefore special as only 10% of the population. A native to LA which only one in 10 Angelenos can claim.
I live by myself and own a historic house. I iron my shirts and I wear socks that match. Much to my mother's dismay, I never wear a tee-shirt just like Clark Gable in It Happened One Night. My mom lived until 93 and was a high school guidance counselor and home economics teacher; she taught me and my siblings to cook, so I know how to do more than just boil water.
Grew up in Hollywood during a time when Hot Chelle Rae (had they been born) really could dance on The Sign; was a teenage hoodlum and pseudo-hippie with long hair and a beard -- who knew I'd succumb to joining the establishment where I now wear suits, cufflinks, and ties to work and talk business to CEO's.
When I was 13 years old, knew the guy who started "Maps to Stars Homes" and wanted more than my allowance, so I sold maps on Sunset Blvd. I found I was in love with the stock market. Worked in health insurance for a big company while at USC, and also sold new and used cars while doing my undergrad; later came back and got an MBA.
Just out of college, lived a glamorous life: high-rise with a doorman, fancy car; loved my place with an impressive city view, and with my previously mentioned cooking talent, entertained. Not soon after, settled down and bought a beautiful Spanish style home in BH. Lived the married life for 18 years while the neighborhood changed. While I'd adapted to cross-town traffic, I'm now glad to be back east of Highland Ave, living in Los Feliz, LOVING IT; we rock!
My life today consists of work, play and confess to being a gym rat; I seeking a serious, monogamous relationship with passion, intellectual conversation, and lots of physical affection.
I've been divorced for a few years and am blessed with 2 great kids. I give their mom most of the credit in how wonderful they've turned out. The oldest is a 3rd year med student, and other on the way to becoming a famous commercial photographer. They couldn't be much different -- left and right brained. The kids will always look out for each other and I'm proud they are on their way to becoming independent -- yours don't have to be launched just yet.
...if you write me and I'll tell you more. ”
