I was born and raised in New York City, and have seen it change tremendously, from almost a combat zone to a playground. I love that you can now have your choice of the Farmer's market, Whole Foods, or the ancient Polish cheese store. I'm told that I have a dry humour that some people think is German or British; generally I'm a fan of the absurd, and consider myself blessed by its abundance. I'm happy to have a broad circle of very different friends.
I finished building a house in June. It took me two years of long weekends, but it looks pretty good. I love what I do professionally, and really enjoy seeing great design, whether it's a building, rug, or painting.
I'd like to date someone smarter than I am, with her own set of interests, hopefully including at least some of the arts. I'd hope that rather than get angry about something gone wrong, she bursts out laughing.
