My self-summary
Warm, funny, Jewish ex New Yorker, more Left than Green. I'm outgoing, full of energy, insatiably curious, love to laugh and have a good sense of humor, and enjoy talking about politics and doing something about making the world a better place. I am often light and playful, sometimes intense and serious. In good physical shape, I love to bike, swim, run and XC skiing in the winter. My favorite things to do when I'm not being intelleuctual is go to the beach, anything to do with saltwater (sailing, diving, bodysurfing, swimming) looking for shells in tidal pools, reading trashy novels and sharing good ones.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for myself as a consultant to non-profits, foundations and social enterprises, specializing in scaling up promising and proven social change projects. I've worked a lot in the Third world, want to do more work in the US and here in the Bay Area
When not working, I'm out on the Bay sailing (own a share in a boat), meditating, cycling and building community (Jewish, Buddhist, cycling, skiing).
I’m really good at
Listening, empathy and compassion, planning, traveling, strategic thinking, public speaking, being a Dad to my two girls, cooking, XC skiing, and telling stories
The first things people usually notice about me
big brown eyes, women tell me its my butt
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love film, especially the classics like Blade Runner, the Godfather, old B&W like Bogie and Bacall, the Thin Man. I see everything from foreign "films" to Hollywood blockbusters. I see the latter mostly on the plane, just enjoyed Enough Said, The Butler, 2 Guns, 20 Feet from Stardom, and In A World (loved the last I guess cause I'm sensitive to voice).
Music: Upbeat Pop/Rock is my prime thing, everything from Dylan, the Beatles, especially George Harrison, to Red Hot Chili Peppers, SemiSonic, Springsteen, The LAs, Roy Orbison. Jazz is good, more old school, and definitely Latin music -- Juanes, Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Nouveau Flamenco -- If you haven't heard it, I"ll introduce you. Listen to most styles, but not so much Rap/Hip Hop.
Other: I love live theatre and stand up comedy, in the Bay Area I try to go see Paula Poundstone, Will Durst and others whenever I can. If I had the $$ I'd spend at least a week in NYC going to shows every day.
Food: I eat just about anything except fast and/or unhealthy food, cook lots of Asian, vegetarian, etc. Ex-foodie, now following a pretty simple food plan with no sugar or flour products to avoid my family history of obesity, diabetes heart disease and all that comes with it.
Magazines: Reading the New York Review of Books New Yorker,
Books: Just finished The Namesake that I loved. Lately have been reading a lot of non-fiction (The Black Count, Imperial San Francisco, Emperor of Maladies, the UnWinding, Thinking Fast and Slow) and non-profit management -- Lean Startup, Forces for Good, Good to Great -- and a lot of mysteries, thrillers and sci-fi on the plane like Michael Connolly, George R.R. Martin, Lois McMaster Bujold, John Scalzi, Neal Stephenson. Favorites are old adventure novels -- Alexander Dumas's Count of Monte Cristo is my all time fave -- and historical fiction -- Tales of the Otori set in medieval Japan, Janissary Tree set in Byzantium.
The six things I could never do without
The beach esp. tidal pools, old close friends, NYRB, my road bike, contemplative martial arts like tai chi and Iaido, my twin girls
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make the world a better place (and making a living at the same time)
How to have a social life and get to the gym, dance and Tai Chi classes regularly when I"m on airplanes half the time running around the world
What the second half of my life is going to look like
On a typical Friday night I am
going to see movies/theatre/stand-up/out to eat, dancing, and sometimes going to Shabbat Services
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I come across as an extrovert, which I am, but can be pretty shy and sensitive. I subscribe to Entertainment magazine, which has surprisingly good taste in most things for a mass market publication. Enjoy reading the things you pick up a the supermarket line or in the doctor's office; still hooked on Brangelina.
