Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having tried various profiles, I've decided to just turn this into
a blog I update from time to time.
Some particulars: I'm goal oriented and love my work, so I'm best
suited to someone who's active - not retired - with a strong
appreciation of music. I'm a political junkie, with feet firmly
planted on the Left - would SO appreciate being with someone who
shares those values. Finally - Please be in good shape! I keep
myself in shape and I'm just not attracted to guys who have let
themselves go. Oh - and no one under 50. Please.
I am and always have been a passionate person, and one of my great
passions is the environment. I am a strong anti-fracker. Last week
I took a trip to PA to actually see fracking sites. We went to
Dimock, ground zero for fracking (all gas if fracked these days,
BTW). Our bus was followed by security goons from the gas industry
everywhere we went, and we were met by an operative who spewed
industry talking points at us - dialogue was not possible. We felt
harassed - but still determined!
I have lots of other passions of course – everything from bird
watching and hiking, to salsa dancing (very unrehearsed at this
point) music and film. Long walks on the beach and romantic
evenings by the fire are always great. If we only had our own
private beach; if it were only winter... :-)
My favorite movie of late is "The Heat," a silly but really fun
buddy movie with Sandra Bullock and the intrepid Melissa McCarthy.
What a hoot! All movies don't have to be silly, but sometimes it
If you’ve read this far, perhaps you are disappointed that I’m not
more flirtatious. This is after all, a dating site. I am hoping
this would happen in person(!). There is no substitute for personal
Now, tell me about you...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lifelong musician/composer for television, who made a
transition to documentary filmmaking about 5 years ago. I'm
enjoying good health and energy and moving forward on a daily
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a great and supportive listener, I'm a great and loyal friend.
I'm good at giving non-invasive feedback (when asked). Also good at
interior design (though that's subjective), at music, writing and
film. I'm also a (non-compulsive) neatnik - I like to know where
things are. I have a great fashion sense, but I can let go of it
and be super casual depending on the occasion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Conelly, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Masterpiece Theatre (especially
Kurt Wallender), Life in Hell - and Episodes!!

Food is less important to me generally. I'll eat anything but have
to stay away from wheat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, a great book, a great movie, my home, a great camera - and
one day, someone to share them with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the hell we're going to deal with global warming - and why no
one else but Bill McKibben is spending any time thinking about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oh, this isn't going to go over well, but on a Friday night I am
happiest watching a movie at home, or if we can find a quiet place
on a Friday night, dinner with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Jeez, I already admitted I secretly like country music!
