My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a born and bred New Yorker who, after too many years of longing, has finally moved down to the West Village. Aaah, home at last!

I love to travel and have traveled a good deal (especially throughout the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean region). After about two weeks away, though, I find myself longing for New York City. I'm a photographer/musician (and former arts administrator) who loves this city - with all its craziness - for being one of the world's great centers of the arts. I also love the ocean and am grateful that New York City is so close to it.

I work out regularly (but I'm no jock). I love music (listening and playing), and enjoy biking, hiking, children and animals, cooking, traveling and learning about different cultures. I'm a long-time very liberal democrat with an interest in politics and a progressive outlook. (What about that Bernie Sanders, eh? I lived in Vermont, and there's a soft spot in my heart for that lovely state and its people).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Staying active and upbeat, traveling and learning. Adjusting to my new life in the West Village. "Focusing" more on my photo work (yuk, yuk). Recently hooked up with a bunch of bluegrass musicians. We get together every week or so at an East Side Irish bar; great fun to be playing again with others!

Getting more into traveling with groups of like-minded people. Recently went down to Cuba with other artists/musicians/arts administrators for the 2015 Arts Biennial in Havana (my third visit to Cuba). As with relationships, I've had my fill of traveling solo.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sensing the feelings of others; bringing people together, facilitating group projects and making all feel at ease; quickly gaining the trust of all creatures great and small (or, at the very least, all four-legged ones!).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look like somebody they know, or saw in the movies or on TV, or saw somewhere.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
World music, "foreign" films and (most definitely) international cuisine. As for books, I love travel writings. Also, books exploring the interchange of arts and society. Lisle Dennis' "The Traveler's Eye" was a wonderfully written practical/philosophical/sociological guide to travel photography.

Last notable read was Patti Smith's "Just Kids"; interesting chronicle of her and Mapplethorpe's artistic (and personal) progressions through an interesting era (the beginning was slightly before my time, but I caught up quick). I've got Keith Richards' "Life" calling to me from the bookshelf, and Twyla Tharp's "The Creative Habit" on the bed stand (it's a book on the need to develop good work habits that pave the way for creativity. Now, if I could only discipline myself to read the book during the day, rather than in the evening before going to sleep!).

Music! As a musician I'm open to all kinds of music and have very strong opinions about them. I'll listen to anything at least once, but sometimes once is enough (I'm thinking hip-hop, pop and pop-country, and - I'm sorry - opera). Music to see me through if stranded on a deserted island: Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue," Billie Holiday (The Commodore Recordings); Ravel's String Quartet; and Mississippi John Hurt's "Today" (if you're not familiar with him, he was a Delta blues musician who finally got recognition back in the mid-60s when he was in his late 60s. Fluid, easy-going (but technically complex) guitar style, sweet gentle voice, and graceful, kindly manner. Listening to him is like being serenaded to sleep by grandpa).

Food? Here too I'll try (almost) anything at least once. Last gastronomic challenge? Chapulinas, down in Oaxaca, Mexico (grasshoppers - small, medium or large, boiled and then sauteed with chili peppers and other spices. Wasn't too bad, but it was the beer and the shot or two of mezcal that helped me get though the experience).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, the ocean, New York City, good food, a camera, and at least one of my guitars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... how to spend less time thinking, and more time doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Stretching out at the health club or mellowing out at a jazz club or attending a late night gathering at a museum, or simply just hanging out at home, playing my guitar and petting my cat (who likes to lay beside me as I play. Good girl!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Never was good at being a "player." Pretty much a one man/one woman kind of guy. So, like Percy Mayfield once sang, "If it's not asking too much, please send me someone to love."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you think we might sync. Also, you live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, LIC, Hoboken or someplace easily accessible by subway/PATH from the Village. Sorry, I've done the "long-distance romance" commute, and nowadays distances seem longer as time grows shorter.

Also, while I'm not looking for "new friends" (whatever OKC means by that), if you're an artist, photographer or musician, I'm open to getting together to see if we click arts-wise.

Lastly, I don't subscribe to the "A List," so you can "like" me, but I won't know who you are. Be brave and drop me a note, especially if I fall outside your stated range of preferred ages. I respect peoples' preferences, and don't automatically respond to viewers who checked out my profile but haven't dropped me a note. Maybe they chose not to because of the age difference. That's okay; we all have our preferences.
