Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am interested in reading, writing, films, museums, architecture,
psychology, and all forms of art. I can be both creative and
analytical; qualities that have helped me in my research, my
writing and my designs. I see things from different angles; I
search for the undiscovered facets of life, I prefer places out of
the beaten path, small towns, unspoiled nature, the outskirts of
Santa Barbara and its wineries, Pacific Grove on the Monterey
Peninsula, the region north of San Francisco; Point Reyes, Napa
Valley in the spring or fall.
I am Caring, Creative, and Passionate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am writing about art and film. In 1995 I formed a group that
still meets, to view and discuss some of the best films ever
made—that are works of art. I am writing about what those films
have taught me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I seek out and encourage the best in others. I love writing,
designing unusual gadgets as well as architectural work. I
transformed a dozen servant rooms under the roofs of Paris into
small studios, and drew plans for the renovation of two homes in
Palm Springs. I designed and built a home theater for my film
discussion group, and a fully adjustable, ergonomic computer desk I
am using to write this.

I don’t know if people notice me or what they think if they do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The short stories of Raymond Carver, The One Thousand and One
Nights, Proust’s "Remembrance of Things Past," among many others,
and non fiction books on psychology, art, cinema,
architecture—anything written by Frank Lloyd Wright. In addition to
being a great architect who built on principles, not fads, he was a
man of vast erudition, a humanist and a very great artist.
I listen to classical music mostly but I enjoy others occasionally.
I am not particular about any kind of food, so long as it lovingly
Some of my favorite films: "Late Spring" by Yasujiro Ozu, The films
of Robert Bresson, especially "The Diary of a Country Priest;"
"Black Rain" by Shohei Imamura; "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days" by
Christian Mungiu; "The Night of Counting the Years" by Shady Abd
Al-Salam; "The Cranes Are Flying" by Mikhail Kalatozov; "Passenger"
by Andrzej Munk; "Raise the Red Lantern" by Zhang Yimou and many
others like them that I consider works of art; mostly foreign. I am
fond of Iranian films for their simplicity, poetry and humanity.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, writing, art, reading, my computer, my cat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My project at hand which I’d like to complete soon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday is not different than any other day. I am at home working on
my writing. I do enjoy seeing friends when the occasion presents
itself, any day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feed stray cats against the regulations of my condo, risking the
wrath of the board of directors and a fine to match. I meet my
feline friends twice a day, everyday.
