I am a runner who is taking up bicycling. I enjoy competing at
fantasy sports like baseball and football. I prefer movies that are
comedies or mysteries, and like to read mysteries. I consider
myself to be a Taoist.
I am intelligent, quiet, and thoughtful, most of the time. I do
enjoy having a glass of wine or a martini after work with friends.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next article/story/poem will be about
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling out on the couch with a movie and sharing Asian food or
pizza with my sons. Or maybe at a live show in town for some rock
'n roll, blues or jazz. Or taking in a movie at the DFT and
stopping by Roast or Slow's for a nightcap.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play in a LOT of fantasy sports leagues.
You should message me if
You want to enjoy a great meal (home-cooking or at a restaurant)
and wouldn't object to a glass of wine or two to complete the
experience; enjoy going to concerts, plays and movies; are willing
to attend sports events; and are willing to talk about the
important and the mundane equally.
