I grew up in the upstate New York (Mid-Hudson Valley), went to college in Rochester, and got a job afterward that brought me out to Washington.
I make many acquaintances, relatively few close friends, and hold on to the close ones for a long time.
I love good food and drink, strong (but not too acidic) coffee, I appreciate art and good literature, music and performances. I am clean but very untidy. I'm a night person who wishes he was a bit more of a morning person. I like good tea, beer, scotch, rum, and wine, but rarely drink it alone. I like to get out and around locally, but wish I was more widely travelled. I'm beginning to think I spend too much time in front of this damn computer. I have a whole bunch of hobbies and interest, and all the clutter and paraphernalia that comes along with that. I like physical activity, but am drawn more to mental - I love new ideas and inspirations, and feeding my head keeps me vital and energized.
