My self-summary
I look at this profile as just a jumping off point since it's impossible to "know" a person with just a few words. So here it goes.

Random Information:
--I've lived in New York City longer than in the town I grew up in, which makes me a non-native native New Yorker. Work in the film/TV industry but am NOT an actress.
-- I Have a very dry sense of humor.
-- I Have a voracious appetite for learning new things and discussing everything and anything.
-- I find it impossible to lie, which is often not a good thing.
-- I am tremendously loyal to my friends.
-- Watching the sea lions and big cats at the Bronx Zoo makes me happy.
-- I could stay in the water all day. Does this make me part fish?
-- I get really excited when I get a high word score in Scrabble.
-- I have been known to scream and/or cry at my Mac when I can't figure out how to fix something. I've only broken down in tears once in the Apple store.
-- I'm an amateur photographer (I'm usually on the other side of the lens, thus the not great photos of me on this site). Though I love the convenience of digital photography, having grown up with my own darkroom, I miss using film and the process of watching an image emerge from the chemical stew.
-- When I see people litter I want to push them into traffic.
-- I have a great poker face, but don't know how to play poker. I want to learn. Want to teach me? But I will tell you now -- once I learn, I give no mercy.
-- I once won a pair of handcuffs playing Skee-Ball in California, but airport security wouldn't let me take them on the plane. I wonder if the security guard kept them.
-- I would be in trouble without spellcheck but want auto-correct to die (until I need it, of course). I wrote "are" not "ate". Ergh.
-- I work out (gym and lap swimming) but I don't particularly enjoy it (though I like the meditative quality of swimming)

Though I've lived in NYC my entire adult life, I have
-- never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge
-- never been to the Statue of Liberty (though it looks lovely from the Staten Island ferry)
-- never been to Ellis Island (it's not going anywhere, right?)

Here are the things that keep me sane (in no particular order)
-- movies (in the theater, not on TV),
-- music
-- theater
-- Mets
-- Stephen Colbert (performance art genius)
-- Bill Maher (now conveniently an owner of the Mets - maybe he can figure out how to get rid of the Wilpons)
-- friends
-- Central Park
-- Long subway ride when I'm reading a good book
-- MSNBC
-- beach

I LOVE to travel-- just get on a plane and go - the more exotic, the better, or getting in a car for a road trip. I've been to China, Vietnam, Bali, and many European countries. I think Spain is next on my list, though there are still plenty of places in the US I haven't seen. I'm very spontaneous -- just give me a minute to put on some clothes

I'm looking for someone who wants to get out and try all types of things, but is also cool with just hanging out, reading a book and just being. We can be together in the same room having an intense conversation, but can also not say anything without feeling the need to fill the air.

If you are religious (or say you are serious about Christianity) and make a point in your profile of saying you are "God fearing" (a term I will never understand) we probably won't get along.

I am confident, spontaneous, intuitive, creative, and calm.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in film/TV but am not a performer. I'm self-employed and can't imagine going back to an office-type job 9 to 5 job.

With the above said, I'm still trying to figure this out. Perhaps in 10-20 years I'll get it right.
I’m really good at

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to name, but here's a sampling: VANITY FAIR magazine (especially the political articles), NYT (in paper format), bad romance movies (the worse they are, the better) and sports movies, afternoon tea (3 hours of getting doped up on caffeine with good friends), Jane Austen (yes, a cliche), the perfect cannoili and pizza, 60s and 70s arena rock (Zeppelin anyone?), Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, Joni Mitchell (yes, another cliche), Film Forum & Walter Reade, and too many to mention. It's hard to name just a few films but anything by Preston Sturges, George Cukor, William Wyler, Billy Wilder, David Lean, the Coens, Goddard, and Sam Peckinpah; Films -- The French Connection, Dog Day Afternoon, All the President's Men, MASH, Godfather, Sweet Smell of Success, Groundhog Day, Animal House, The Empire Strikes Back, What's Up, Doc; I know Where I'm Going, Philadelphia Story, Holiday, Brief Encounter, Hobson's Choice, The Apartment, the list goes on and on... The '70s is probably my favorite decade for movies.

I didn't mention books since there are just too many to list. I always have a book in hand. Currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

I am finally willing to concede to the iPad in terms of reading books. For a long time I kept saying "no, I love the feel of holding a book". Well, once I read those first few books on my iPad, it was all over. I love knowing that I can have 10 books ready to read, all in a slim container in my bag. It's perfect for reading while traveling. I just wish it existed when I read The Power Broker (1,200 pages in larger type for some reason). My back would have been much happier.
The six things I could never do without
1) My iPhone (so I'm not tied to my computer and can wander the world and STILL work and get paid)
2) my passport
3) my unlimited Metrocard
4) my friends
5) the beach/ocean/swimming
6) travel
6a) sincerity and honesty
6b) compassion
6c) curiosity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How any biped could be a republican...and all that follows this allegiance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I'm self-employed and my time is my own, weekends don't mean as much to me. But my ideal evening is getting together with friends for dinner/movies and hanging out for hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't remember jokes

I hate cilantro
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 35–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are not interested in emailing each other indefinitely, but want to meet up. I'm not looking for a pen pal.

You are NOT 25 (or anywhere in your 20s) . Really. Please don't contact me. I will ignore you. You're not being cute or charming by contacting me and saying "do you like younger guys".

You live in NYC (not outside this area). Do NOT contact me if you live outside the NYC area.

You think that going to a Mets game is a perfect way to spend an afternoon/evening.

You have a face photo. Not a photo of your arm, or your dog (though I'm sure it's way cute), or a sunset. Face. If I can post photos of myself, so can you. I'm not going to respond if you don't have any photos.

You're not that person who sits down at a bar or table and automatically puts your cell phone on said bar or table. All this says is that you may have something much more interesting or better to do than sit with me.

You care to.
