Just a wishful piano player stuck in a marketing guys mind. I have
been lucky to have experienced living and working in the music
business. Met lifelong friends from my time in radio, advertising
and marketing. Blessed with three amazing daughters and very cool
friends. I am a political junkie with a comedic edge. I appreciate
Jon Stewart. I prefer to get my news from real reporters (let's
keep this internet free of corporate interference)and not big
business sponsored pr machines like Fox. Am I the only one who
finds it interesting that foreign interest own more Fox stock than
anyone? I enjoy witnessing the hypocrisy and smugness of the
anti-American right wing nuts and the ineptitude of the other side.
How do they get away with this stuff?
I love live music from the concert halls to the dive bars.
As might have surmised, I am passionate, outspoken, and funny. One
last observation...why is it that there are so many people who
claim to look younger than their age really just look their age?
Are egos really that fragile to start a relationship on an untruth?
One of my quirky things on my wish list...must love soccer. Most of
the world gets this right.
What I’m doing with my life
Having a ball most of the time. I get to work with people I like in
a business that does make a difference. Currently starting another
venture that could very well end the debate of paper or plastic.
It's not finding the cure for cancer but it could be the cure for
plastic waste. My three daughters are all in college and well on
their way to a fulfilling life journey. Literally what am I doing
this moment? Hoping to create a relationship from which dreams are
made. And listening to Elvis Costello's Sulfur to Sugarcane.
I’m really good at
Marketing. Ideas come fairly easily. This has translated very well
in writing, product development, building a couple of houses and
even coaching soccer. I very good at laughing. And I am really good
at kissing (well i like it a lot and would like to practice more).
The first things people usually notice about me
you mean besides the striking resemblance to (insert your biggest
heart throb here)? Seriously, most comment on my eyes (when not
wearing these blasted glasses), my laugh and my voice. Mostly, the
look when I am just happy to be there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Stupid White Men. Rush Limbaugh is a Bit Fat Idiot. Wow I
guess it has been a while since I read a complete book. I am most
reading great articles and short stories
Movies: Which genre? What decade? I can find good art or fun in
most but there are some stinkers.
TV Shows: Curb Your Entusiasm. Californication, Dexter, Spectacle
with Elvis Costello, Letterman, and Keeping up with the Kardashians
(kidding on this one), Daily Show, Ed Schultz. Guilty pleasure:
Jeopardy, Two and a Half Men; How i met Your Mother.
Music: Elvis Costello followed by a lot of other amazing
singer/songwriters like Springsteen, Dylan, Morrison. A great
guitar can still send shivers up my spine (thanks Carlos, Erik,
Lindsey, etc). Recently I have become a little more country thanks
to Zack Brown, Miranda Lambert, Billy Carrington. And I can always
make time for a little Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Wayon &
Willie. Saw a band I used to work with a few years ago...The Tubes.
Such a fun band and under rated.....they rocked Yoshi's!
The six things I could never do without
My BBQ grill
A Fine Cabernet to share
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The moment. I can find inspiration in almost anything. I do get
annoyed at bad and unsafe drivers. Wing-nuts drive me a little
crazy so I like to think of ways to return the favor. Most
interestingly I spend a lot of time thinking about cake! Does cake
really mean cake? It's my secret.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for that perfect glass of cab. Or getting ready to hit the
road to anywhere. Sometimes, it's just staying home, grilling
something good and spicey, and watching a good movie & Bill
Maher. What I would like to look forward to is that first hug and
that first kiss of the evening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmmmm. I really do well in public events but just am not very good
at this dating thing. Care to be my mentor?
You should message me if
you believe in love (thx Huey Lewis), believe every kiss is
special; appreciate Elvis Costello, soul music, etc
Can tolerate my lust for soccer, my passion for politics and allow
me one plate of onion rings once a year without judging; understand
that whoever invented cake was a god. And soon will understand my
many definitions of "cake." There it is again.
