My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"The only people for me are the mad ones... ...the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars." --Jack Kerouac

That's me... one of the "mad ones". Part art boy, part business guy. At heart a bohemian, but can dress corporate when called for. All about the creative process and drawn to creative people and crazy ideas. I'm politically active, culturally engaged, consciously healthful, endlessly curious and eternally glass half-full.

I'm looking for my creative counterpart. A woman of substance and wisdom and grace and joy. With an urgent appetite for exploration. Fiercely independent, yet capable of deep connection. An intimate partner to share the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been an artist, a photographer, an art dealer, a gallery owner, an Internet entrepreneur, a writer, a technologist, a public speaker and an infomercial producer. And for the past dozen years, a television / new media executive. Helping content creators control the distribution of their art.

I speak at a lot of conferences, moderate a lot of panels. Travel regularly. Mostly in the US, but occasionally Europe and Asia. Particularly fond of Italy.

Physically active. In the gym 5 days a week. Hiking, biking, playing sports with my 13 y.o. son (lives with his mom, a few blocks away). Also have two adult boys and a large extended family back east.

I'm a news junkie. Interested in politics, local and global. A bit of a lefty, with a little libertarian sprinkled in. Listening to lectures, attending film screenings... museums, art galleries, concerts.

I've been very fortunate. And I love my life. But it would be that much better, if I could find the right woman to share it with (I know you're out there).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1.) being smart (or at least looking like I am)
2.) keeping it light, having fun (but in a serious way)
3.) extreme communication (kinda like "emotional bungee jumping")
4.) romance (flowers, love songs and back rubs)
5.) fatherhood (my kids voted me "Father of the Year"... 6 times)
6.) making lists (enough said)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

4.) mellifluous voice (yeh... I had to spell check that one)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

1.) cafe hopping, outdoor trekking, gallery crashing
2.) Scorcese (Martin), Lynch (David), Altman (Robert)
3.) House of Cards, Mad Men, Breaking Bad
4.) Baker (Chet), Springsteen (Bruce), Marley (Bob)
5.) Venice, London, Jerusalem
6.) New Orleans, New York City, San Francisco
7.) Bay Cities, Father's Office, Caffe Luxxe
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) intimacy
2.) laughter
3.) intellectual stimulation
4.) art & music
5.) camera
6.) NPR
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Creating and building. Lots of media and Internet projects. But I also think about the perfect relationship. A true partnership in love, career, friendship and family. With new places to explore, food to enjoy and music to experience.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Walking on the bluffs at sunset, at an opening or screening, hanging out with family and friends. Thinking about you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a double uvula. It's not as weird as it sounds, it's actually rather cute. And possibly responsible for my mellifluous voice.

  • Ages 40–55

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know who you are. You're smart, well educated, cute, natural, liberal, curious. And you are creative or in a creative field. Maybe this doesn't describe you exactly. But you think we still might click. That's OK, too. There's no science here :)
