Although I have many interests, ranging from politics, to outdoor
activities, and exploring nooks and crannies of the City, I find
myself most compelled by various aspects of the arts, both actively
engaged in pursuits like songwriting and photography, as well as
attending shows, exhibitions, etc. I'm most interested in the
performing arts and recently I circled back to theatre and created
and produced a wacky play that is also part vaudeville act. I get a
lot of personal enjoyment out of the projects in which I'm
involved, but I also think that it's important as a culture, a
society that we value the role the arts can play in our
I'm also very interested in touchstones to the past, which is why I
like looking around at flea markets and thrift stores and have been
from time to time involved with trying to help save historic
buildings. Although I don't do it as often as I'd like, I enjoy
hiking and camping a lot and would like to add more of that to my
life. There are lots of other interests--some of which I pursue
more actively than others and some of which still connect me to my
I'm close to my family and a group of friends. I definitely prefer
human-to-human interaction over TV, videogames, Facebook,
In my career and my life in general I have tended to follow the
things about which I'm passionate. So, while there hasn't been an
overarching plan, really, somehow I ended up having very wonderful
What I hope for in a partner is I guess what many people want,
friendship, companionship, stimulating conversation, but most of
all someone with whom I have a shared understanding of the world.
Someone who might look at life and be willing to explore it from
the same--or at least similar-quirky angle.

I work as a photographer and videographer.

I'm a good writer. I'm a good conversationalist. I'm pretty happy

Music: The Beatles, Paul Simon, Gershwin, Sondheim, Arlen, Joni
Mitchell, Professor Longhair, Thelonious Monk, Talking Heads,
Radiohead, Regina Spektor, Ching Chong Song, The Who, Bock and
Harnick, Harry Nilsson, Richard and Robert Sherman, James Booker,
Neville Brothers, and many more. I also listen to music by friends
of mine from local songwriting scenes, for example, Schwervon! and
Debutante Hour. Books: loved Lolita and many by Henry James. I
recently read Pete Townsend's autobiography, which was interesting
but kind of odd. Movies: There are some that I've loved--The
Graduate always comes to mind--also Lost in Translation and The
Godfather--but I usually find myself enjoying live shows and
performances (theatre, music, dance) more than movies. Food: I stay
away from meat and poultry but other than that I'm not too picky.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never do without? The thing I'd really prefer not to be without is
a piano or some way to make music. Cameras are good too. Paper and
pen are also extremely useful. I love Apple computers and
especially their software, but I have a feeling I could find a way
to live without them. I wouldn't be too happy if I had to stay away
from New Orleans for too long.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
music, photography, my family (parents, siblings, nieces and
nephews), and my friends. I also think about social policy and why
it's so difficult to affect change through our political system.
I've come to the point of accepting that we live in a
commercialized culture, but I still think about ways to find and
create experiences based on genuine humanity rather than money

Lots of times going to a music performance.
