Last October, I moved to Buenos Aires, a new city for me, intriguing and exciting. Like many others, I originally came for a short stay. Now, I have a job, friends and an indefinite schedule. I've sailed the Caribbean, ridden a horse through Tibet, lived in Prague and Hong Kong, and traveled in in fifty-some other countries, but there is a feel about this place…
Back in San Francisco, my Stateside home, I played jazz, managed a gallery/event space, backpacked, practiced yoga, biked, and garden on my roof. I plan to do many of the same things here, plus tango and any other interesting activities that come up. I usually have a creative project in the works. Near warm water, I like to dive. Near cold water, ski. On top of water, sail. Not that I've done much of those in the past few months, 'tis true… Then again, I've seen some amazing live music lately, so perhaps balance is maintained.
While working, I consult on IT for large yada znorg gronk. I never, ever feel compelled to talk about it at dinner parties. My usual engagement is a long-term contract, leaving breaks in between for travel or sojourns such as the current move.
I have great friends, many of whom I've known for a very long time. I believe in loyalty, that chivalry is not yet dead, and that principles are not abstract. Give me interesting thoughts, the perfect line, the right touch, the one true note. Snuggling is good, too.
This is the part that I was told to include: 'smart, charming, clever, kind, sweet, edgy, slightly nuts and wonderful.' And contrary to OKC's personality graph, accurate in so many ways (I've compared charts of friends using the site to my experience of them and generally come away impressed), I am excellently-mannered. Seriously, I am.
