I am athletic and spend a fair amount of time working out, which is
usually swimming, biking or running. Swims at Walden Pond are
excellent, swims in Newport, especially in rough water, are even
better. Pool swimming is really boring. I am more focused on my
bikes than my car.
I have a tremendous daughter who lives in LA, has a great job and
is a really good kid. My family lives nearby and I see them as
often as I can, especially my three nieces. Time with my family is
very important to me.
I compete in triathlons. By no means am I the fastest. I do however
enjoy the competition and the incentives to stay fit. Rugby was a

What I’m doing with my life
I have had my own consulting business for over 10 years. I enjoy
self employment and I enjoy working out
I’m really good at
Assessing and solving problems and helping others.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, my smile and my voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read every day. I usually alternate between fiction and non
fiction. Recently I have read quite a few historical fiction novels
about Vietnam, including The Cat from Hue, Matterhorn, The Things
They Carried and Tree of Smoke. More recently a lot of TC Boyle,
including Drop City, Talk Talk and Wild Child. Newspapers every
day, New Yorker and Atlantic Monthly.
The six things I could never do without
family, bike, swimming, good food, naps
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make my life and the lives of those close to me better
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends or asleep early because the next morning
there is an early swim, run, ride or race
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
you will have to get to know me
You should message me if
You enjoy life, have a good sense of humor, are fit and are in
touch with your own physicality
