I was born and raised back East in Maryland. I lived in Boston for a decade and now live in Downtown LA. I work as a Librarian. I have visited many of the major cities of America: New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Chicago. I enjoy travel, but in many ways I am a home body. See I told you I was paradoxical.
I am a poet and a writer, and I take that craft seriously, but I try to not take myself too seriously. I enjoy my work as a Librarian but I am pretty talkative for a profession known for its silence. I love to be in a good conversation about history, politics, food, music, arts, or film. I am something of a classic film buff. I have wide ranging interests, so some people find me insightful and witty and other people just think I know a lot of trivia. In fairness, they are both right.
I enjoy going to restaurants, pubs, dinner parties, and wine bars. Every now and then I like to go to Las Vegas and gamble in a casino or two. I enjoy horse racing also. But I am also at home in art galleries, museums, and cultural events. I enjoy Baseball, shooting pool, and reading a good book. I am more interested in enjoying myself than I am in impressing others.
