I would describe myself as a compassionate, creative spirit. I'm moved every day by so much. I'm a born and bred New Yorker. Art, books, ideas classic films -trigger my dreams. I am not conventional. I'm a real sweet heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing about it. So far, 380 pages.
I’m really good at
Listening, being honest, understanding and not judging people,
dancing to Techno or Rockabilly music, expressing my feelings,
making people laugh and laughing, loving, and admitting when I'm
wrong and correcting.
The first things people usually notice about me
My personality and energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I went to film school and fell in love with an endless list of films. Love foreign films from classic on. Renoir (just saw Grand Illusion again at the Film Forum and I was moved by the humanity and simplicity of it) Buster Keaton. Love Jean Gabin, the French actor. One of the best actors ever and very under-appreciated. Naturally Godfather and Good Fellas. Pina blew me away by it's merging of dance and 3D and also appreciated how Wenders edited the film. The editing was seamless. Comedy for me tops the list. I love to laugh. More of a fan of older films--only because there real solid writing and character development besides vomiting during a bachelor/bachelorette party . I do like Will Ferrell. Watch Bill Maher. Books: Eclectic. Books on art, film, french literature, but also books on the Mob, True Crime, World War II. Right now, reading a good book on the artist Goya. Finished a Joseph Heller book. Also rereading Waiting for Godot--not sure what that means. Leonard Cohen and Bukowski film me with different emotions. The Strand is a haven, even though, sadly, it changed. Old book stores are another passion. Love the smell of old bookstores and old books. Kind of like the smell of intelligent thought and other-worldly ideas.
Food: Deliciousness in all forms. Except red meat. But love to eat and love to read restaurant reviews and try them. Eating is a mini vacation.
Music: I love a range of music genres. Rockabilly, R&B, old school hip hop, experimental, jump blues, Blues, 60's garage, punk and funk. Anything that drives me to move and dance. Even the clackety clack of a passing train.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. Food. Creative ideas. And how I just bought a powder blue shirt from Urban Outfitters and the second I stepped outside, I bumped into another guy wearing the same shirt.
On a typical Friday night I am
...dancing , or at the movies, or walking feeling exhilarated about all the funny random stuff you see.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Need a touch of mystery.
