Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a lucky guy with great friends, good karma and the ability
come and go as I please... A New Yorker who transplanted for grad
school and never left.
Always worked hard, two sport college athlete, startups,
builder, dad, and coach. Now taking it easy except for the dad
Low key, no drama, world traveler, love my freedom.
Not getting married again but looking for a travel companion and
equal. If you're competent in your passion, a real individual who
knows what; "I've got your back" really means... we'll get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking a deep breath and trying not to cough... enjoying the beauty
around me and not taking for granted that I'm blessed. Moving out
of my comfort zone on a regular basis to learn and grow. Not
getting to serious unless its to support a good cause or help those
I live in both Monterey & San Francisco; When home, I hang with
my kids (if they're home... both are away at college); play the
drums (in the garage and with a band), lecture undergraduates,
coach track & field, tend to the pinot vines... go for morning
runs...and work. Not all in the same day...
Traveling to enjoy art & the local culture, exploring the early
morning streets of Rome, Paris, & Barcelona and try to learn a
little more about life and find a good slice of pizza.
I teach & coach, I've been blessed and its a way of giving
back. I support family, friends, my kids and my ex in all their
endeavors ... that's how I was raised. I'm thankful for great
parents and try to emulate their skills... I don't always succeed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ignoring the noise & staying clear of drama... Bueller ?
keeping the beat
getting on a plane heading for warmer climates with shorts
and a tooth brush
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, friends & my golden pup, who's now 11 (if we're
If it's stuff/fun:
*Vic Firth 7A's (drumsticks)
*Water pressure (a nice hot shower)
*an ocean view
*art (preferably modern masters)
*pizza from a wood oven
*passport (that's seven if you're counting)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to help my kids be in a better position to find
happiness...they're in good shape; How to run consecutive seven
minute miles again... without having to travel back in time... and
how to get 600 pinot vines to work as one. (failing)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends or family... catching a sunset on the ocean with a
glass of pinot... On a plane coming home from NYC, or taking a deep
breath from a long week... It depends on the week... my weeks
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Integrity & zero BS/drama are keys for me... A simple mantra
"do the right thing"
I get my news by watching The Daily Show...
I try to live my life as if I were Ferris Bueller ;)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a moral compass that is pointed in the right direction,
you're independent, physically fit (you don't have to be a college
jock), college educated, and can jump on a plane and go.
I'm happy to buy dinner, plane tickets etc, but you have to fund
your own IRA. Lastly, you did not answer the earth is bigger than
the sun, you believe in creationism, or you're 26 (or any age) and
