** disclaimer: I'm just visiting your country for a few days. That
doesn't mean I am looking for hookups, but definitely towards the
short-term end of the dating spectrum! ☺ If you have suggestions
for sights to see, or gluten-free restaurants, those are most
welcome. You've been warned. **
I'm open to possibilities and will talk to strangers, although I
tend to go deep in conversation and connections with the few rather
than superficial connections with the many. Having new experiences

It’s important for me to be active to a) compensate for sitting at
a desk all day and b) disengage my brain. I enjoy golfing
(usually), pickleball, snow skiing, traveling, sailing, to name a
few. It would be great to find someone who shares in some of those
interests. If there is something that you’re passionate about, I’m
eager to try new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love this section! It is one of the things that endears OKC to
me, because it helps keep me on track, especially reading some of
the inspiring things that so many others are doing. Like many other
career-oriented professionals, I can get caught up in the
day-to-day details and occasionally lose sight of the bigger
picture, such as forgetting to call that friend I’ve been meaning
to contact, or even take time to re-examine my life. Balance is
important to me.
Are you even reading this? Or did you skip right to the pictures?
That's probably what I'd do if I thought the profile was getting
Currently, I’m checking off as many items from my bucket list as
possible and re-examining my life. Within the last year, I have
gotten SCUBA certification, taken up sailing, tied (but not broken…
yet) my low round at golf, travelled to distant lands and won a
super bowl (OK, so I didn't exactly do that directly, but I helped
with my amazing 12th manliness!). There are many more that I want
to experience or accomplish to help me grow in a manner that I’ve

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I prefer non-fiction, because truth is often stranger than
fiction. Current favorite is "The First American" by HW Brands.
Constantly reading 1-5 books at any given time with more in the
Movies: Searching for Bobby Fischer, Rounders, Fight Club,
Caddyshack. In other words, movies that make you think and/or have
Shows: Don't have any TV programming, so can't really claim I've
seen anything recently. However, Top Gear, Family Guy and South
Park were favs. Planet Earth is sublime and unsurpassable. Hulu and
YouTube are frequent stop -also, often find my way to a TED
Music: Not really sure what alternative means any more since it's
now mainstream, but current favorite is Death Cab for Cutie
whatever its genre.
Food: gluten-free by necessity, Mediterranean, almost any
restaurant in NYC, Thai, Mexican, Sushi

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hard to say, because it depends on the week. You know how it is,
one week: seeing a show, another: out with friends, next week: at
home unwinding after a long week, then: on an amazing date (...with
you? See what I did there? :) )
