My self-summary
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
Being flexible
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 Black

A bit of an WNYC junkie
The six things I could never do without
My children and friends
Copper pots
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.

Smart men.
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
