Kidding aside, friends typically describe me as quick-witted and funny, upbeat, enthusiastic, warm, family-oriented, tuned in to the world & to other people, attentive to those I care about, genuine, unpretentious. I try hard to be a good friend (& am blessed with many longtime friends), a good listener and a good communicator. People say my Southern parents raised a gentleman. (Manners and civility count.)
I believe how we treat others--banker or busboy--is paramount.
Find pleasure in many things, both simple and not so simple. Healthy and high-energy. Run and/or walk every day. Also work out, hike, ski, bike, play tennis, do the steps at the beach.
My interests are varied and numerous, from books, business, travel, exercise and good food (and farmers markets), to the financial markets, movies, the arts, politics and photography. Enjoy my work but have no problem with leisure time. Love to laugh and have an enormous capacity for silliness and fun.
I love to travel. Hiked Cinque Terre and now have my sights on Machu Picchu. Paris, Santa Barbara, Aspen, the south of France are among some favorite places.
I live on the Westside.
