My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Upon re-entering the single world and staring the prospect of on-line dating in the face, I called upon the only female peers I knew who were experienced in that world to review my first attempt at a profile.

Those would be my ex-wife's sisters

Odd choice? Well perhaps... but they are good friends and the closest thing I have to actual sisters .

And their conclusion?

"Lower your age, mention that you love to travel and make it sound more like you are looking for a'll get more dates that way"

Opted not to take their counsel as went that advice but I did edit out a sentence or two about the general physical types that attract me. "Those make you sound like a jerk" said they.

"Hmm...but what about all the profiles that mention tall men only etc, etc"

"That's pre-qualifying"

"But when a man does the same?"

"He's a jerk."

These being very smart women....the discussion stopped there, the point ceded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teen years split between deepest, darkest suburbia and Switzerland, my 20's exhausted chasing a rock n roll dream, my 30's passed as a restaurant owner/chef, my forties as an advertising type, first in radio and eventually as the owner of an audio production company focused on marketing communication. That would be the career that stuck, with my 50's still finding me doing exactly that.

Looking back I suppose there is a rhyme and reason to my career arc but if asked, the one accomplishment I am most proud of is being Dad to the lovely young lady I am lucky to be father to.

And I should mention this.... currently playing in the best band I've ever been in....separated from even the remotest possibility of commercial success, we are free to explore and create for no other reason than the pure love of doing so.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
More than a few useful things ( I am accomplished and enthusiastic in the kitchen), several more that can be exciting to the right person and some that would interest few but amuse me no end (in the interest of full disclosure...I am talking about electoral politics and Coronation Street).

At the other end of the scale? Utterly useless at anything involving tools.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that they are sure they know me. Which means I either look like an awful lot of people in general or someone well enough known that they are top of mind.

This American Life

WTF with Marc Maron
KCRW's Left, Right and Centre
Common Sense with Dan Carlin

All types, the worthy, well made and thought provoking as well as purely guilty pleasures. If there are aliens involved? I am usually at the head of the line on release day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Being Dad
My friends and family
A well equipped kitchen
The library
My band
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Frankly....with the reboot well underway, I am mostly trying
not to think too much at all. Starting with a blank slate seemed
in order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
We'll have to status calls for new routines....or perhaps an absence of them altogether.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I speak fluent "ballet". Men with daughters often do. I have secretly grown fond of it.
