I've spent two and a half years in amazing Telluride, Colorado, because I told my mother a few years ago that if she ever had to get chemo again, she wouldn't go through it alone. Not long ago, after two months of doing hospice for my mom, I lost her. Yeah, there's a mom-sized hole in the world. But after three years of making my mother my number-one priority, it's time for me to decide what's next, and where's next. I've relocated to the Denver/Boulder area to check out the fit. I'm CEO of a medical startup, Physician Cognition, that's trying to change the world, and we need a bigger sandbox.
I'd like to live in both a big city, one with energy and creativity humming and entrepreneurship and art, and in a beautiful place in the mountains. I'm a total Europhile so I dream of chalets in the Alps. I can really work from anywhere. Are we on the same page here?
Skiing is church, therapy, and exercise all in one. But it's okay if you don't ski (or snowboard). :) I am in love with mountains generally, whether hiking them, skiing them, seeing them out my window, or driving through them (Playlist: Songs in the Key of Speeding Tickets).
The Dude Does Not Abide. I am probably not someone you'd call chill and laid-back. I've been told I have crackling energy, as well as that I seem calm and unflappable. I have the heart of an artist and entrepreneur, and the left brain, let's say, of a lawyer who was fortunate to get first-class training in critical thinking at a top law school. In sports involving implements I'm an abomination. Native of small-town Colorado, I have an East Coast sensibility, a quick mind and tongue, but an intention as gentle as the Buddha's. I revere irreverence.
Dance. I am transported in dance, but sometimes I just dance ironically. I really feel music, and I can dance to just about all of it.
Energy. I am physically pretty strong and graceful, a former hurdler and running back. I'm a merciless hiker and a serviceable yogi, a ravenous reader and a prince of a friend.
Power of Now.I am utterly present to a woman and the poetry of her body -- in conversation, in flagrante delicto, or in silence. I'm learning every day what it really means to pay attention, and what the power of now can do for a relationship. Or for transformative, cosmos-traversing intimacy. A woman, like love, is a temple, and she is a higher law.
Yearn. I've traveled to all but one state and to 37 countries, my favorites many times. I could imagine living with you at least part of the year abroad, living a creative and loving and generous life among like-minded sorts, near natural settings within 30 minutes from real skiing.
Heart. I'm curious. As a teenager I identified with Don Juan's classic riff: "For me there is only the traveling on paths that have a heart, or on any path that may have heart. There I travel… and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length.
"And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly."
The picture of me that you like most is the one I look most like.
MY BEST FRIEND
You are passionate, confident, open, funny, expressive, active, awake. Curious about the world and everything in it, you're always learning. Maybe you consume books like chocolate, like cotton candy, like chocolate. You have your own life, your own power, and are happy being independent. Your key lessons are largely known to you. You intend to enter into a mutually conscious, ever-growing, fearlessly searching relationship. You are that wonderful combination of smart and kind; you're warm and nurturing to all. Probably you have a real soft spot for animals. You can imagine liking a man picking out flattering clothes for you, with or without your presence. You can email me a scan of an embossed certificate attesting to the absence of major personality disorders. And honestly, you have really great legs.
In 2013 I joined a former client in starting up a company that has developed an algorithm for differential medical diagnosis like nothing that exists today. I'm pretty psyched about the possibilities.
Asking questions. Getting at what matters
Driving a stickshift. In my baby, my M3. On curvy mountain roads. While you sort of adorably clutch at the handle on the roof.
Skiing with abandon
• my profile, since the Internets
• "You look like a WASP." (The cross I bear, but I do carry trace amounts of blood from Cherokee, Blackfoot, and Hebrew tribes)
• "airline pilot's voice"
• A lot of fine hair
• There's a dent in your nose!
• Eyelashes long enough to paint with
• Butt is too hard (my rolfer)
Some literary masters: Beckett (the Trilogy, the plays), Hemingway (the short stories), Garcia Marquez (the novels), Milan Kundera (his literary criticism), the critic Harold Bloom (whose central thesis of an agon among writers, not to mention prophets and religion-makers, has greatly influenced me), Donald Barthelme and Witold Gombrowicz (both wonderfully strange), Kafka, Twain ("Huckleberry Finn," because if you're going to write one book, maybe that should be it), George Saunders, David Mitchell ("Cloud Atlas" - genius), Cormac McCarthy (masterful "Blood Meridian" - high genius).
I love Italian, Thai, Indian, and many German dishes whenever someone can even come close to my mother's. I prefer to take my Italian in Italy.
Electronics. Because here's why.
Chocolate or cookies with chocolate in them. Yoga. (Sometimes together).
Your delectable legs. Mountains (sometimes together).
Music for to dance and sing
all my projects
why so many of you think you are "dichotomies"
the unbearable lightness of being
. . . destroying a karaoke stage somewhere in Koreatown, Brooklyn, or Telluride.
I sing a good deal. Not for a living. In my shower, though, at karaoke, in your shower, maybe in that order. I'm also willing to admit that some of the results are actually visible on the interwebs -- this one was a tribute to my mom's beating back cancer for another round. That ought to beat any handful of photos in helping you make a quick decision :)
. . . you don't mind that I dance like this.
. . . you imagine we could be real friends even if we never decide to date - and especially if we do.
