Actor/playwright/free spirit. OK, that doesn't really "summarize" me but it's what comes to mind first. Hmmm... What comes to mind next? I like to sleep as late as possible and can spend a day doing absolutely nothing but that's only if I'm not getting up for an early morning bike ride or run or swim. Oh yeah, I started triathlon training a few years ago and love it! But it's not the most important thing in my life... More important: just, well, enjoying and exploring. What I'm looking for: a man who likes whatever it is he does, is smart, has a good sense of humor, loves being in NYC, and appreciates the country as well. I definitely do not need to meet someone who is super-athletic, just someone who likes being active. Being active in many ways: now that's important.
What I’m doing with my life
Having fun, I hope, learning new things as often as possible, trying to surprise myself at least once a day. I have two fabulous jobs - I'm a sign language interpreter, and a teaching/performing artist using puppets to teach kids diversity. And I like to swim, bike, and run, do yoga too. Not all at the same time. I live in the city and try to take advantage of all it offers, as cliche as that may sound. I'm a member of MOMA and love Coney Island and Central Park and the Hudson River and the old Lower East Side. I also spend a lot of time upstate in the Catskills reading, writing, x-country skiing in the winter and barbequeing (sp?) in the summer.
I’m really good at
Napping. When I'm not doing that, doing twelve things in one day
(see "what I'm doing with my life"), which is why I need to nap.
The first things people usually notice about me
My off-beat sense of humor? Do you notice that or does it happen? ... It used to be my long curly hair but it's shorter now ... just fyi ... and, they probably notice, if they are reading this, that I like ellipses!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - Harold and Maude, The Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life;
Books, too many to mention although a favorite is "Winter's Tale"
by Mark Helprin (as opposed to the one by Shakespeare, although
that's pretty good too). Music - Elvis (both of them) Bach
bluegrass and Bruce (Springsteen); Food - yummy anything
The six things I could never do without
A body of water to swim in, real bagels, the library,
family/friends, the subway, trees, NPR. I guess I can't live
without SEVEN things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The sad state of politics today, the weather (closely related to
climate change and also my triathlon training), if I'm going to
have iced or hot coffee in the morning. That last one is only in
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't like the word "typical" but -- I could be in Astoria with friends having Greek food, at a movie somewhere in Manhattan, or at home watching re-runs of something...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's too private to put in writing.
You should message me if
Only if you live in or near NYC!! (I'm not looking for pen pals.) Also. If you are tall dark and handsome, or tall and dark, or handsome and dark, or tall and handsome, or even if you have blonde hair, or gray hair, or no hair - ok - hair isn't all that important. What is important - if you want to meet me, of course!
