My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
HERE WE GO... My reason for being on OK Cupid is to get off OK Cupid. I'm not greedy... not a serial dater... would be very happy to meet ONE great woman (at least to me)... my romantic counterpart and best friend. I am convinced I will need to throw back a few cups of coffee or glasses of wine along the way to accomplish this; bottoms up! I’m looking for someone who is a good fit, mixed in with a hint of magic and energized by the intangible element of chemistry– a nice blend of humor, values, shared life experiences, pheromones and attraction.

ME IN A NUTSHELL: I was born and raised in the Midwest. Chicago (translated: down-to-earth). But, I’ve spent time and lived in several places. I think i've been in every state except Alaska– which I’d also love to see, by the way. I’ve traveled to several countries but am equally has happy hanging out at home. My house is really comfortable and Marin is a great place to live.

Growing up, I had a large extended family, but not so much anymore. I am lucky that I still have my dad around. I really love and appreciate family– I have two kids who are without a doubt the high point in my life and reason for my thinning hair– though they’re now teens and one is away at college. For me, family usually includes four-pawed furry friends, a.k.a. Bella my 10 pound attack dog. Also, part-time foster dogs... my daughters passion.

Things I like… the sound and smell of the rain, wind and rustling trees, especially during storms. Swimming. The warmth of sun on a ski chairlift or after a swim. The smell and feel of tropical air and mountain air. Sonoma. The Carribean. Mexico. Mountain scenery and ventures. Chocolate. Good wine. Massage. Architecture. Cooking, especially together. Walks in beautiful places. Old things well-preserved (like me!), especially classic cars, muscle cars and the 1968 Camaro convertible I restored. Hanging out with my son or daughter. Road trips. Overnight getaways. Watching movies (all genres) and occasionally sports. Sensuality. Being out in nature. Biking and boogie boarding. Exploring on the internet. Afternoon naps. Guitars and occasional jams with friends. Working as an art director for the past 30 years. Playing with PhotoShop. Working with my hands or doing projects. Fixing things. Going to a Giants game now and then. Curb Your Enthusiasm and South Park. Live music, especially at smaller venues. And sometimes doing nothing.

Things I’ll like about you. Your femininity, levity, honesty, sensitivity, loyalty, and integrity. The way you take care of yourself and stay in shape. Perhaps your street smarts or creativity. And the way you treat others and treat me. I’ll appreciate your sense of style, the subtle fragrance you wear, your touch and sensuality. How easily you’re moved to laughter (often, by me). I'll even admire your own passions or quirky interests. Your open-minded outlook and empathy towards others. Your appreciation of family and kids. Your easy-going (at least most of the time) nature. And how we are together... our differences and our common bonds.

Your profile and photos will catch my interest. Unless you’re hidden by sunglasses or are the size of a jelly bean in your picture. But, it really comes down to meeting and chemistry. I’ve found emailing to be slow and open to misinterpretation. Phone conversations sometimes build excitement. But we really won’t know until we hang out a bit. So, if you like what you read let me know... I can't read your mind.

Finally, a bit of housekeeping...most of my photos are VERY current– they're the one's where I'm my hair is grayer, and yes, thinner– easy to find! But, to fully appreciate me you must experience the 3-D version. Drop me a note.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A bit of this. A bit of that. Getting my son off to college. Enjoying my daughter while she's still fourteen. Getting outdoors now that it's light out late and the weather nice– sometimes with my dog. A little travel here and there. Doing little things to make the world a better place. Savoring my free time. Appreciating what I have. Thinking about what is next. Enjoying the start of baseball season.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the humor in most situations. Fixing things. Playing guitar and figuring out the chords to a song right on the spot. Building things. Finding a parking spot Visualizing something that doesn't exist. My job. Listening. Getting to the crux of a situation. And...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I haven't really asked but... first, my smile and easy going
demeanor. That, there is a dog next to me. That the hump they thought was on the left side of my back now appears to moved over to the right side of my back. Or did it? A twinkle in my eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Steely Dan. Great guitarists. R &B meets jazz. Live music when I get the chance. Non-fiction books like Into Thin Air. Yoshi's– small venues are great. Great comedians. The Wizard of Oz. Crash (the movie, I recently watched it). Great italian. A good burger. Salmon. Breakfast food. Fruit, especially melon and berries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why six? Guitars. Laughter. Family. Free time. Friends. The internet (hate to admit that). Humor. Dogs. Saran Wrap. Sex. Beautiful scenery. Time not working.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My kids. Getting older and that retirement thing. My dad. My house. What's next. What makes people tick. The amazing coincidences that seem to constantly happen around me. What my dog does when I'm not home (has she ever turned on the TV?) Cool places in the world to live or visit. How my dad is doing (he lives in Arizona).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Decompressing. Horizontal. Chillin'. Looking forward to the weekend. Pretending Monday is a long time away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Want to experience me from a distance of two feet', or so. Feel a connection to me you can't explain. Want to discuss four-legged furry creatures. Would like to sit down for a cup of coffee with a stand-up guy. Don't have plans this coming weekend. Have a hunch.
