Chronically inquisitive, adventurous, laid back and inclined to
appreciate and promote what makes us unique. I'm seeking a
relationship with someone who, like me, is compassionate to
themselves and to others: someone who is looking to share day to
day triumphs and disappointments, to create magic in the kitchen,
to enjoy meals where others do that for us, plan getaways, exchange
parenting tips, war stories and support.
I'm attracted to people who look for and find the unusual,
beautiful, and amusing in the everyday and can creatively describe
it in words. I gravitate to tall, athletic, professional and kind
of smart-alecky men, particularly those with a penchant for
realness and a disdain for too much artifice.
What I’m doing with my life
Pacing myself; learning to play golf; working on a TV show; planning next adventures here and abroad; these days, dating.
I love to cook, enjoy small dinner parties, am a conduit for conversation with people from all walks of life.
My cultural-dining life/spirit is city-centered and my parenting life is guided by the myriad outdoor activities readily available year-round. I love to kayak, swim, run and ski. Kind of a dilettante; definitely not a cross fit person or tri-athlete. I'm all about slow and steady.
I’m really good at
Finding available street parking
Packing an impromptu picnic
Recalling lyrics to summer camp songs
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I have long legs. I must look like I know where I'm
going. People stop me in the street to ask for directions. Often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just finished Freedom, went through a Philip Roth phase, am forever
re-reading The Short Stories of John Cheever and a lot of David
Foster Wallace. Love Lorrie Moore, Richard Ford (though didn't like
Lay Of The Land), read The Times habitually. As for music, I find
myself oddly okay with Pink (who I hear in the car when driving
with my daughter), but am relieved that my son is, like me, into
any kind of music with a non-electronic beat: Citizen Cope, Broken
Bells, Alice In Chains, Eddie Vedder, Fleetwood Mac, Ray La
Montagne are in current rotation. We recently saw a great funk band
in New Orleans. Made me realize I need to get out to see live music
more. Re food, I'm open to any and all cuisines save for Korean.
Meat and pickles is just not a broad enough palate.
TV: Homeland, House of Cards, The Wire, Orange Is The New
A bit of an WNYC junkie
The six things I could never do without
My children and friends
Good red/white wine depending on the season
The kindness of strangers
Fitted jeans tucked in tall boots; sundresses and sandals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How maybe it's all about timing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Free as a bird since my ex typically has the kids that night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I harbor a secret fear that the kitchen cabinets could, at any
time, fall on my head.
You should message me if
You're the kind of man who returns the shopping cart to the corral
