Pretty easy going, easy to get along with, very close to my family
-- basically a nice guy. I grew up in this area, moved around a
bit. After getting a masters degree a million years ago in
playwrighting and film in Los Angeles, somehow I ended up back here
in international development. Somewhere in the middle of all that,
I got another masters at Harvard, traveled a lot for work (mostly
eastern Europe and Central Asia, and now have settled down a bit.
Though a dyed in the wool democrat, my political leanings have
gotten increasingly conservative over the years, though I'm always
happy to joust and take eclectic postiions on pretty much anything.
As so many say in these profiles, family is at the top of the list
of things that are important to me, and meeting the right person
would be a great start. I'm very serious about searching for a
relationship that's serious and can last.
Even though it's increasingly unlikley, I would give anything to
still have the possiblity of raising a family -- which is the only
reason I put that younger age range. Who knows... I could change it
tomorrow, but it's sorta been on my mind.
I guess that's pretty much it. Hope to hear from you.
I’m really good at
Writing of all kinds, especially fiction -- though I do a great
deal of various other kinds as part of my work in development. I'm
good at getting along with most people, generally being a mensch,
having fun, and getting along with kids. I'd like to be good at
ballroom dancing so I'm looking into finding a course somewhere.

On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as typical. That said, I wouldn't be on here if I
didn't want to change a few things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wouldn't be private if I put it online now, would it?
