I love life. I have a wonderful family and enjoy being with my six
grandchildren. I have been involved in the information technology
field all my life and have enjoyed raising my children, being
totally immersed in their activities and now their childrens'
activities. People say I am a very nice person, always smiling and
happy, even though, at times the odds are against me.
What I’m doing with my life
My life has changed quite a bit since my wife passed away almost
two years ago. I left the corporate world and am now working on
building my own business in the security technology market. I've
lived most of my life at or near the waters of Long Island and,
though I love being on Long Island, I would like to travel . . .
possibly by sail!
I’m really good at
listening and working out life and business issues and then a whole
mess of things like carpentry, sports, boats and, of course,
cleaning dishes and folding laundry.
The first things people usually notice about me
that I smile all the time and I look young. They also remark that I
have a high level of energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have a favorite book, but love reading and getting into a
good book, whether an adventure, a love or horror story, or a good
non-fiction. I'm addicted to good writing and have read fantasy
"sets," Mitchner's historical novels, and many spy stories as well.
My father was in motion pictures (behind the scenes), so I became a
lover of good movies - there are so many I could not pick a single
"favorite." While in college I worked at an off-Broadway theatre
and found I liked musicals best; though I have not been to the
theatre in the last several years. I cook - breakfasts are my
specialty but people, especially grandchildren, love my roast
gravies too. I'm a food-aholic, so I've got to remain active and do
so. But, I crave many types of food - Japanese, Greek, and Italian
are all good as well as any seafood. I try to stay away from
saucy/fatty/sweet cooking to keep healthy.
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends are really what matters to me. Of course,
being healthy is important as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As I lead a very event-filled life, there's not too much time to
think; but, when I'm driving, I think about the next task . . . but
I also think about those I love, their issues, events, and
successes. I've been called a supreme optimist, so I concentrate on
On a typical Friday night I am
Lazing on the couch or playing soccer under the lights . . . But
would rather be enjoying a good flick with a companion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I don't have alot of private things; I'm pretty open.
You should message me if
You would like to spend some time getting to know me or if you'd
like to just be friends or if you need companion for the movies or
