HOW I GOT HERE:
I moved back to the NY/ NJ area a few years ago to start a real estate investment company after bouncing around the globe for the previous decade on business, most recently working for Goldman Sachs in Tokyo for 6 years. Got to travel all over Asia and much of Europe. Loved every second of it.
I shepherded my business thru the real estate storm, and just sold it for a decent gain in December 2013. So I’m currently figuring out what's next career-wise.
Living abroad, keeping my business afloat, and a 9 year relationship that ended a few years ago have kept me out of the dating world for most of the last decade. So I'm pretty new this this scene. I finally have a window of relative freedom and am excited to find someone special back here in my home region.
I played football at Harvard and got a degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy. Thought I was going to play in the NFL (too small) and save the world (still may). But way leads onto way...so for now I'm a businessman. It's worked out well and given me the opportunity to live the rest of my life to the max. I'm ambitious, but I work to live, don't live to work.
WHO I AM:
I'm positive, health conscious, affectionate, very open-minded, adventurous, ambitious, curious to the brink of a fault, a tad mischievous, and have a sometimes edgy, often goofy and occasionally twisted sense of humor that you'll love or, well, won't. And I never take myself too seriously – life is too short for that nonsense.
I'm also very much a romantic, and a kid at heart (may seem like an odd combo at first glance, but it's actually not - I'll explain when we meet). And I understand it takes a true gentleman (me) to get a classy lady (you?). As one girl who wrote me said in her profile - "shivery" is not dead (true story).
WHO YOU ARE:
I think I can find something special in pretty much any “type”. That said, I guess I'm ideally looking for someone who’s positive and passionate; emotionally intelligent, mature and open; smart, curious and excited about living life; appreciates romance and affection; loves going out and having fun; appreciates nature and the outdoors. Playful and mischievous are good. Smart, savvy, and even a little sassy are... sexy! Chemistry and communication are key. I'm a sucker for pretty eyes and a cute smile.
PS- I'm listed in NYC, which is where I work part of the time, play most of the time and will soon live all of the time (moving into Manhattan in a couple months), but right now my place is actually just across the Hudson river in New Jersey. Not ideal, but temporary, and I can get to anywhere in Manhattan in a matter of minutes.
