I hail from NY but now howl from NJ. I'm a health conscious chiropractic physician. I enjoy intellectual stimulation, finding humor in everyday situations, and listening to great stories in books, movies or real life. Cooking healthy food, exercising, and spending time in nature are my other passions. I'm considerate, easy going, and a compassionate person who laughs easily, and has integrity.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a chiropractor with a strong background in functional medicine. Admittedly I do have a lot of unconventional ideas about health but I spend a good deal of time learning about herbs and other supplements and how to best manage different chronic health issues.
My downtime is spent outdoors kayaking, biking, running or hiking. I also like to work out, do yoga, or go for a swim and a sauna. Fitness and healthy living is a priority for me, and that includes an occasional triathlon, organic food as much as possible and paying attention to environmental issues. I often listen to NPR or WNYC, or watch PBS for my news.
I’m really good at
My work. Catching things; (I have quick hands).
The first things people usually notice about me
I think people have commented most on my blue eyes, my shoulders, or my quiet easy going nature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Caine Mutiny, The Firm, Musashi, Exodus, Buddhism Is Not What You Think, I Am That, Atlas Shrugged (not a favorite, just wanted to find out why conservatives refer to that book so much) An Omnivore's Dilemma, and re-read The Power of Myth. Cutting for Stone, is a recent novel I enjoyed very much. On the health front: Wheat Belly, and Grain Brain.
Movies: The Godfather 1 and 2. Casablanca, Twelve Angry Men, Cool Hand Luke, Jeremiah Johnson, Serpico, Shawshank Redemption, Europa Europa, Little Miss Sunshine
T.V. Just watched all the seasons of Breaking Bad. It was great! Great ending! Now watching Better Call Saul. Love The Shark Tank. PBS, The Comedy Channel, Nat Geo Channel, The Food network, and The History Channel are my go to channels to relax.
Music: Most classic Rock and Roll. Bruce Springsteen, hey I live in NJ, new bands I like: Elbow, Florence and the Machine and The National. This past summer I bought four of the National CD's, and have been listening to them a lot.
Food: I do eat free range animal protein and fish, but I am pretty much gluten and dairy free. I do eat some raw milk cheese that is unpasteurized and from grass fed cows. All of this makes me a big fan of Asian, Indian, and my own cooking. I make a decent gluten free bread, and I also make my own raw sauerkraut. Recently, I have been learning about wild food foraging (not the trash bin variety) and find that really interesting. Overall, I guess you can say I am a health nut.
The six things I could never do without
1. Home cooked meals. 2. A good laugh. 3. Exercising. 4. Spending
time in nature. 5. A radio to listen to NPR, WHYY, and the Met
games. 6. You?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about the vastness of the universe, (thank you NASA and
Hubble telescope), the meaning of life, how unique intelligent life
may be out there, and whether they have red and blue states. :
How to tweak the search parameters (should I expand another 50
miles) on this site so I can find you, or should I just throw the
towel in and join okigiveup.com
Is there a woman out there who might want live a greener lifestyle
with me and do we have all the other elements for a great
Recently I have been thinking about whether asking someone to Skype
first (sort of an eight minute date) to see if a real date should
be planned is a good idea.
On a typical Friday night I am
After some exercise like a swim, relaxing from the work week and
planning my playtime for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still have the same waist size as I did in high school, but my
shoe size has gotten bigger.
You should message me if
If you think we are like minded then let's see if it can be more than that. A fellow health nut would be nice but not mandatory as long as you are open minded to alternative medicine. If you don't take yourself or religion too seriously, you are not a Fox News following Republican, you don't take depression medication, and if you think we might have chemistry then that works too. Oh, by the way, I am not on the A-list so if you "like me" then I won't see it, so that means you would have to say hello first.
