What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m usually burning the candle at two ends or more. You’ll rarely
see me sitting in front of the a television (despite the fact I
have not gotten around to canceling my outrageously expensive cable
for the 2 hours a month I watch something on HBO). I am passionate
about my career in real estate, with a particular focus on historic
and urban properties. Also I play music a few nights a week. I play
string bass and electric bass and perform with several groups
playing rock, jazz, and a little folk/old country.
If not working or playing music, which is sort-of working I guess
since it does pay, you may find me working on a restoration project
on my house, out to dinner and drinks with friends, checking out an
exhibit, architectural tour, or music or theatrical show. I love to
entertain guests at my house and it lends itself well to that. I
enjoy welcoming my friends over whether it is for a small dinner
with a few close friends or 100 folks from work for an office
In between the working, playing music, and socializing, I have been
forcing myself to go to Crossfit to not feel guilty for my
laziness. (I give credited to my Catholic upbringing for my
successes as result of guilt from not working harder.) I’m not a
Crossfit nut but lack my own self-motivation to convince myself to
jump on a box 60 times in row, I need my succumbing to peer
pressure for that and it is much cheaper than a personal trainer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Other than writing run-on sentences, which I have already fully
demonstrated, I am pretty handy and can fix or install almost
anything, home repair wise. A sort of odd stupid human trick I can
do is guess the age off any house within about 5-10 years based on
the architectural details, materials used, etc. (I can see you
clicking on the “send him a message” button now!) That odd skill is
more about me being an historical architecture nut than being a
realtor, although trapsing though thousands of houses showing
property is good practice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most comments I receive, at least positive ones, are of my
eyes. They’re very blue I get complements complete strangers on
them including the homeless. “hey man, you have a dollar?...wow,
your eyes are really f…ing blue, are those contacts?”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I listen to NPR constantly. I receive most of my news and
information there that I often times have the issue of having no
idea what a politician or whoever is in the news even look like.
I’m a bit embarrassed to admit but this burning the candle at both
ends thing does not bode well for me reading nearly as much as I
would like. It seems the only leisurely reading I’m getting in is
while traveling. With my interest in music it ranges vastly from
Bach, to Miles Davis, to the Beatles, to Mumford and Sons. I have
some odd playlists going.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wine (usually white)
Internet/connectivity (this is sort of lame but access to instant
information and communication is very addictive. It can make things
much more efficient but also a curse in its power to distract and
make everyone, including myself, ADD)

Socializing with friends
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you enjoy and capable of stimulating conversation and prefer
being social than being a homebody. If intellectualism is very
important to you. If you take care of your appearance and have
sense of fashion. If you’re not overly religious, and don’t believe
that a guy named Noah literally put two of every animal on boat (or
any other crazy religious tale), or would have issue with me being
agnostic. If you are open minded and prudish would very rarely be
an adjective to describe you.
