I'm unique. Established, intelligent, grounded - but my inner child
is never far from the surface. Might be why kids like me. And
adults too. I like making meaningful moments, and mischief. I suck
the marrow out of life -- but am a hell of a lot more fun than
What I’m doing with my life
I have a job that is intellectually stimulating and meaningful, but
spend most of my free time with my artist friends who are trying to
make it big in the music industry or writing. I've written short
stories that are pretty hysterical. I make the most of moments. I
know when there's a full moon and will point it out coming up over
the buildings. If we're on vacation, I'll get you up to see the
sunrise (and then some...) I cook, and think meals are a special
time -- even if it's just me.
I’m really good at
Getting 25 hours out of the day. I'm fit, and athletic and would
prefer you to be also. I'm comfortable enough in my manhood to want
you to beat me at tennis (every now and then). I've done marathons,
triathalons and sometimes ride to work even when it's snowing
because it's fun. I prefer sailboats to powerboats and can plot a
course, take my bearings and generally know where I am (but kind of
like being lost too). I like making plans, but then throwing them
out and making it up as you go along.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. That I stand when you enter the room. My eyes are hazel
and get greener as the lights get dimmer.

The six things I could never do without
I'm really not that dependant on things. But I'd really be
disappointed if someone stole either of my bikes!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I'm always running late.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home in my club chair with slippers, smoking jacket, scotch on
the rocks, reading something edited by Susie Bright. (I mean --
comeon with these stupid questions!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's discuss. I think it's more fun to whisper such things.
You should message me if
You'd like to join me on my typical Friday night....
