My self-summary
I'm a realist, a romantic, and a gentleman. I am also loyal, sometimes to a fault.

I'm an extrovert; outgoing and adventurous. I love experiencing new things and meeting new people, I'm naturally inquisitive, and I'll try anything once. I like to stray from the beaten path, especially when I travel, and I love to travel. I like to really get a sense of new places and different cultures, and to hang out with the locals. Most recently I spent five weeks in Vietnam where, among other things, I rented a motor-bike for two weeks in Saigon and bought a pig in Sapa. Both great stories... I also have a special love of the Caribbean, along with West Indian culture and food.

I prefer pubs, dive bars, and good restaurants to night clubs. This is probably because I enjoy good conversations with interesting people, and preferably over good beer, or wine. My favorite part of a party is often toward the end, when just good friends are left, and you sit around drinking and talking for hours. My friends are a very important part of my life.

I love good food and craft beer, staying active, running, skiing, camp fires, quiet deserted beaches in the Caribbean, reading, and curling up with a book or in front of a good movie (preferably with someone special).
What I’m doing with my life
In a word; transitioning…

Finishing my MBA, doing some independent consulting projects, and trying to figure out what's next.

In the meantime I’m hanging out with my friends and meeting new people; looking for fun, and new friends, and good times, and adventure, and passion!

Staying open, and looking forward to someday finding someone with whom I will fall deeply in love, BUT I also not necessarily looking. I believe that it will happen for me when the time is right.
I’m really good at
Anything I put my heart into!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm very outgoing, often opinionated, and always a gentleman!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books, that covers a broad spectrum! I enjoy classic literature. I am a big fan of everything from Shakespeare and the Russians, especially Dostoyevsky, to Jim Carroll and The Basketball Diaries. I love Gone With The Wind, the book and the movie. I'm a big fan of Salinger, and not just Catcher in the Rye. More resent? I enjoyed The Kite Runner, find Tom Clancy and Ken Follett entertaining, and so much more. I love to read anything good!

I'm also a big movie fan. I enjoy movies from pretty much all genres and yes, that includes romantic comedies. I am not a big fan of horror movies, but I enjoy some. Ultimately, I love good movies, and I enjoy few things more than curling up with someone special on a rainy day and watching a great movie!

I like most music, except country. I date my life by music, and memories are often tied to what I was listening to at any given time.

I am a foodie! I love going out to eat good food, anything from street vendors to gourmet dining, and I really enjoy trying new and different things (especially real local quisine when I travel).

I enjoy wine and I love good craft beer!

More than anything I love to enjoy good food, good wine, good beer, good music, good movies, and good times with my friends and loved ones!
The six things I could never do without
Nothing - to be unable to live without anything is too absolute and too limiting...

Is that a cop out?

Fine...

I would certainly miss my friends!

I would have a hard time adjusting to any life without companionship - not sure that I could live without love and intimacy...

I would also certainly miss good food and good beer!

Lastly, I guess I would admittedly prefer not to have to adjust to life without my iPhone, sad but true
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next. The life I want to live. Doing what I love. My friends. My future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical?! No such thing...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anything - I'm an open book... just ask ;)
You should message me if
You want to...
