I'm a native New Yorker, grammar school and HS in Manhattan. I'd describe myself as a recovering Catholic of the Irish variety - 13.5 years of Catholic schooling and being an altar boy takes it toll.
I'm gratefully sober over 25 years but have no issue with people who drink socially.
I was a redhead as a kid. Not a "ginger". A redhead.
My politics are to the left.
I listen and have a good memory for details.
Ironman triathlete, marathon runner, road racer, cyclist - all are things I've done. Not so much lately, though. I've lost the mojo. If you road cycle and are looking for a riding buddy I'm available.
I love dogs and all critters.
I'm sort of a cynical, misanthropic optimist.
I see the humor everywhere.
Key thing: I'm not an asshole. You may think otherwise, but I sure hope not.
