My self-summary
I was born and raised in San Francisco and I have lived in the Bay Area and in Atlanta. As you can imagine, living in these places helps me to have a pretty broad perspective about people and the choices we make. It has. The short story is that it has helped me to be one who loves people. I like meeting all kinds of folks and digging in to find out what makes them tick. I believe that everyone has a story to tell and I want to be able to hear as many of these stories — and in as much detail — as I can.

I would like to hear your story. Not just read about it, although I will read every word that you've written on your profile here, but also hear you tell about you and hear how you tell about you.

I can hardly wait . . .

I am happy, healthy, and looking for the edge
What I’m doing with my life
I own and operate a promotional products distributorship. My work, more specifically, consists of identifying and supplying products that my clients will use with their logo, mascot, slogan or message emblazoned to promote themselves. It is my work as well as my opportunity for creative expression. I love what I do and I am always looking for a chance to network to build mutually beneficial relationships. (I believe in shameless self promotion.)
I’m really good at
making stove-top popcorn; writing press releases (PMA at work here); marking 'Like' on facebook; graphic design; meeting deadlines; being on time; being; and some other stuff, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I am usually smiling and generally happy. No particular reason, I just love being me and being alive. This is such a wonderful life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Childhoods End and almost anything else by Arthur C. Clarke or Isaac Asimov.

Movies:
The Visitor
New Jack City
Iron Man
The Pianist
The Spook Who Sat by the Door
I'm all over the place really, I'll try most anything. Twice.

I like Old Time Radio shows, I listen in or download from the internet. The Whistler, Suspense, Broadway is My Beat -- all good stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Six things? Okay, here are six tangibles that I would rather not do without:
- laptop
- internet
- cell phone
- vehicle
- pen
- my glasses

Most of these things are, as a practical matter, what I need and use during the course of most days. I will mention my work on here (probably a few times) since it takes a good piece of my time and focus, these are my usual tools.

And here are six not-so-tangible things that I prefer to have:
- love
- companionship
- opportunity
- appreciation
- honesty
- hope

Of course there is so much more to my life than simply existing. It is the interaction with other people, ultimately, that make each day meaningful. These are some of the things I value and will not do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the inconsistencies and the delicate nature of life.

And other stuff, too.
On a typical Friday night I am
I come from a big family and I have a lot of friends, so on a Friday night (really this is true of any night) I might find myself doing any number of things.

I might [go to a movie]. I could go visit someone's house. I could catch a plane to visit some part of the country (typically as part of my work, but usually on a Thursday).

Many Fridays are spent like other nights: I am self-employed building my small enterprise, so I spend a lot of time developing it.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 29–59
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
you are a person with a flexible personality and get along with all kinds of other people. If you are looking to stretch yourself beyond what you may normally do, then most certainly give me a visit. And if you are intelligent, dynamic, capable and desirous of growing and learning . . . reach out.
