I can tie a proper bow tie, find my way through the jungle, talk my way past corrupt cops and keep three lit torches in the air. I've lived on four continents and traveled in sixty countries, ridden a horse across Tibet and sailed the Caribbean, but keep coming back to the Bay.
I bike, backpack, play jazz, read, manage an occasional gallery/event space, yoga, ride horses and motorcycles, and garden on my roof. I usually have a creative project or six in the works. I keep up on current events in a serious way, bordering on obsessive. My latest passion is polo, and I will soon start lessons locally. Near warm water, I dive. Near cold water, ski. I think about returning to a few old hobbies, such as sculpting, but not just yet. My preference is old-school figurative, though I did weld a bit on the metal figures in the photos, which were originally exhibited, temporarily, in a dramatic desert environment.
At the moment - cliche alert - I am running one startup and advising another. I will not kid you - my work life is hectic and unpredictable. I hope that it will calm soon, but there is no telling when that will be.
I have great friends, many of whom I've known for a very long time. I believe that chivalry is not dead, loyalty is not out of style and in leaving the world better than we found it. Give me interesting thoughts, a perfect line, the right touch, the one true note. Snuggling is good, too.
I've officiated at nine weddings.
Things I'd like to practice/improve these days: music, Spanish, French, archery, and enough soccer skills to join a pickup game without looking like I wandered onto the field accidentally.
The part that I was told to include by a female friend: 'smart, charming, clever, kind, sweet, edgy, slightly nuts and wonderful.'
