I've lived my life as it's come. I've been an 'artist' for most of
my life; meaning I draw, paint and take photographs. I don't define
myself by these activities, I enjoy them. I have always worked
hard, played hard, love the outdoors, going fast any way I can. I
have very good friends, most of the real joy in life is sharing
good times with good people. Alone time on the bike or at a drawing
table is part of the mix.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to get a business going closer to home. I work in
hospitality, I work at night. I do enjoy a good amount of free
time, living well has much to do with the time one gets. Riding the
mountain bike is a big passion, it demands compete athleticism.
And,,,, has to be said, in here looking to meet a woman.
I’m really good at
Riding bicycles, driving a car, conversation, listening. My job. I
can cook and know about wine. (notice, I said 'can' cook, nobody is
going to starve) I'm good in a relationship, although it's been a
while at this point, I may need some polishing.
The first things people usually notice about me
tall, I guess, never asked
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
W Faulkner, W Styron, J Harrison, C McCarthy, T McGuane, W Stegner,
E Hemminway, J Salter, H Murakami. M Amis, T O'Brian, others I'm
sure I'm forgetting. Recently enjoyed two memoirs from women, Patti
Smith and Lidia Yuknavitch. Movies, ah movies, I have worked at
night most of my life, hence, been missing movies, (I still prefer
in the theater), I love them. I am transfixed by intense eye candy,
I'll admit it. Visual intensity is a great joy. Serious movies,
we'll have to see about that. Shows, I had the life affirming
pleasure of seeing a number of Pina Baush pieces in their prime,
starting to get a kick out of ballet, of all things. Music, I
listen to all kinds of things these days, I think most of us do,
the range available is crazy. I started out as a dyed- in -the-wool
guitar guy, still think Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Buddy Guy are
bench marks. (Gibbons blues tunes are WAY under-appreciated) Food?
This I 'get'. I can appreciate, take great joy in, anything that
isn't junk. Time and place are worthy consideration here, a simple
rustic brewed coffee, no barista in sight, at the top of a great
view can be the magic, an espresso made by some maven in a Tokyo
coffee bar playing T Monk on his crazy turntable is something.
The six things I could never do without
friends and family, people
lover and partner
peace and quite
exercise, preferably outdoors, like to have a bike
wonderful food, beer, wine and the people together
NYC, other great cities and the people in them
dinner parties (nearly a lost art these days)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Time; what to do with it, what's been done with it, where it's
ending up. "We all love the earth, we just don't get to stay."
Pithy, yes, grim, no,,,,,happy as hell to be alive. I dislike this
new printing norm with only one space after a period, writing is
still such a great medium, never mind all the shiny stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
this is fluid
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen to trashy books in the car. I'm not even a little
photogenic, never have been. How do people do that?
You should message me if
I don't know,,,,,,if you're loving, crave the physical, irreverent,
sassy, lot's of energy, good posture,,,,,,can see both sides of an
issue, are calm and clear headed in those important moments when
it's needed. I am not tied down a with specific physical type
beyond athletic, being inquisitive and smart is a must.
