Industrious, intelligent, humoristic and warm.
Passionate about politics and so to as a lover, attentive and adventurous. One part Ivy League, One part Street. Curious, enthusiastic, with a pronounced private side as well. Honest and sincere, no hidden agendas. Love music, the spoken word, wilderness and big cities, and for all the practical stuff in life do believe that the symbolic and unspoken has weight.
What I’m doing with my life
Parenting a teen, running a non-profit environmental and human rights film company and directing its productions, working on green rural development projects and enjoying outdoor adventures and city life with equal zeal.

The six things I could never do without
romantic love, filial love, rhythm in music and poetry, once a week shave with a straight razor, fruit, and of course, coffee. Exercise for sure, fun, sex, and yep, the ocean. Travel and adventure a must.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What just happened, what is going to happen, and you.
On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as typical, I could be dancing to a band from Sierra Leone at a downtown fundraiser, recovering from the week by watching re-runs of I-Spy, or folding socks. Soon it will be romancing you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy ten terribly good cigars every year and ten glasses of good
