Single (never married) serial entrepreneur who’s recently
discovered this work/life balance thing I’ve heard so much
I spent my early years as a globetrotting photographer. I’ve been
to the Great Wall of China, sailed from Miami to Cartagena on a
125', two-masted schooner, and visited more than a dozen European
countries. Recently, I completed my tour of all 50 states. Travel
and adventure are passions of mine, and I plan to do much more of
What I’m doing with my life
Now a part-time Indiana Jones, I work for a non-profit and love helping others via the work we do. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning and helps me appreciate the things I have in life more.
I’m really good at

Live or recorded music, from acid house to zydeco, there's a time
and a place for everything.
Food? Although I enjoy cooking, I wouldn't want to risk it with
The six things I could never do without
1. Camera, pen and paper
2. Sense of humor; laughter
3. Friends & family
4. The great outdoors
5. Creative outlets; personal/professional challenges
6. The arts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Killer Scrabble words, my next road trip, snowboarding in
Vancouver, going back to Hawaii.
How I can make the world a better place, if even only for one
person at a time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a gallery opening or art show, dinner party or catching
up with friends over drinks. Maybe seeing a play or live music...
Depends on what's happening around town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think it's more important that a person has ambition, dreams, and
a sense of adventure and wonderment than whether we like the same
movies or music. After all, if James Carville and Mary Matalin can
make it work, the common ground must be more important than the
You should message me if
If your sense of adventure is matched by your sense of humor, and
you can have fun despite things not always going as planned.
