My self-summary
I've been accused of being "a man of a few words" as it has taken me awhile to fill this out....don't be fooled as my children are always asking if I "failed to use my word quotient today".

A few facts...born in Oakland and moved to Berkeley to attend college...started in the wine business when I was 20, started my own wine importing company at 25 and, fortunately, still at it....have a great family (three step kids plus a couple more)....I'm an open person, friendly and I try not to take myself too seriously...still trying to learn and grow, to expose myself to people, ideas and cultures that can expand my view of both the world inside and outside.

I also want to be part of an engaged, committed where the words "we" and "ours" are commonly used as opposed to "yours" and "mine"...a relationship that doesn't lose itself in the daily trials but remembers that togetherness, touching and intimacy are what feeds our soul.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to do it all! Kidding....there are just too many things out I'm focused on those things that I feel great passion for... family, my work, wine and food, physical health, travel, sports (OK, had to sneak that one in there) and people who make me laugh!
I’m really good at
at making reservations for dinner!
The first things people usually notice about me
White! That's the hair and the beard!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food books and seem to buy way, way too many...always have too many going on at the same time...on the nightstand at the moment...."Bloody Confused" (Culpepper) - an American sportscaster falls in love with English soccer; "How to be an Adult in Relationships" (David Richo) - pretty self explanatory; "Nothing to Be Frightened Of" (Barnes) - a disquisition on death but funny; Four Fish (Greenberg) - a culinary history of the fish that dominate our tables; "Life" (Richards) - was not really a Stones fan but genius is found in strange places; "Secret Ingredients" - a New Yorker anthology of food and drink articles; "Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Iyengar) - I can't explain how this one got there (I can but not right now); "Blood over Water" (Livingston) - written by two brothers who competed against each other in 2003 in the 149th Oxford-Cambridge boat race...enough of all this.

Music - like jazz particularly singers, piano players and sax guys. Stuff that's been played this weekend....Mark Murphy, John Proulx, Kevin Mahogany, Charles Brown (!), Scott Hamilton, Gene Harris, Red Garland, Monty Alexander, Ellis Marsalis, John's not all jazz so heard a little Keb' Mo' ("Just Like You" is the greatest) and Lyle Lovett (he grows on you).

Movies - anything that is a feel good kids constantly accuse me of crying at moves (IT IS NOT TRUE!)...a sappy example would be "One Fine Day" with George Cloony and Michelle ????....loved the King's Speech (but who didn't).

Like the ballet, dance and plays...would like to go more often.

Food....see good at making reservations! I like to cook with someone too....good wine and long conversations!
The six things I could never do without
My family
Good music
Food and wine
A great relationship
A good view
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how ended up at this point in my life and am on OKCupid!
On a typical Friday night I am
sharing a nice dinner with great people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that a therapist I went to once (remember, always working to be a better person) said I was a great catch...that's pretty immodest and I hate that!
