My self-summary
Hi, thanks for checking me out. I am a Caucasian male of Russian Judaic ancestry.

I am very intelligent, compassionate, very passionate, a pretty good listener, a talented musician and artist, an ok cook, and an ok gardener. I like to exercise, now mostly walking, yardwork, and the YMCA.

I am retired, except for occasionally selling a piece of art, giving harmonica lessons, or a paid music gig.

I have led a fairly atypical life. I explored a lot of stuff, worked in the publications industry for 6 years, studied and played therapeutic oriented music in nursing homes for 12 years, played as a children's musician for 2 years, started a monthly journal featuring the artwork and writings of local persons with chronic mental health problems that got distributed throughout Maryland and made the library of the American Visionary Art Museum, have taught harmonica lessons for 18 years, relearned to read music, volunteered with cats in animal shelters, put out 2 CDs, sold art periodically for 10 years through Sideshow at the American Visionary Art Museum, had 3 solo art shows, 2 in Baltimore, one in Gettysburg, PA, and been in multiple group shows.

I love Fiona Apple, probably too much. I love standup comedy, but just to watch at home. I love Amy Schulmer, and Maria Bamford. Louie CK is also high on my list.

Music, Jazz, Fusion jazz, progressive rock, world, progressive blues, good harmonica music, Miles, Coltrane, Chick Corea, locally Lafayette Gilchrist, classic rock, a lot more, so much music around!

One of my fav Directors has been Charles Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation). Use to love David Lynch, but I decided he is too dark.

Books....hmmm....was reading a history of the Russian people (my heritage) that went back to prehistory, I like some Gnostic philosophy (Nag Hammadi), any good humor, loved George Carlin's books ("when will Jesus bring the Porkchops?")

Would love to find an African-American woman who enjoys cuddling and watching movies at home(s) and sometimes at the theater.
What I’m doing with my life
trying to live a balanced, whole adult life.

How not to think so much

live music, or at art show, or out dancing, or at home chilling
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry, Im not.
You should message me if
you like what I say. Think we might have some common areas to explore. Can love a imperfect man who is also very gifted. Want to be loved, and listened to, and do all the ins and outs, ups and downs of exploring, enjoying and struggling with a long term intimate relationship.
