Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, thanks for stopping by. A multi-generational San Francisco
native, moved to the south bay when it was referred to as The
Valley of Hearts Delight, and it was!
I'm now single after a long term marriage and a few year monogamous
relationship. Life is wonderful, my 2 kids are in their mid-20's
and it's my time to shine! Most friends consider me to be a great
guy, sometimes quirky, funny, demonstrative, progressive, generous
and possessing a strong joie de vivre. After putting it off
forever, I returned to college in my late 40's, got a bachelors
degree, and a few years ago, I nailed my masters. What a thrilling
ride and exceptional educational experience!
While I make friends easily and generally know within minutes if
we'll click, most either totally get me or some have no idea what
planet I'm from, which is just fine and exactly how I run. I don't
follow the herd and often do the opposite of what other's
I have friends of a wide span of age groups and spend a lot of
quality time with my daughter.
I've traveled around the world and travel often for both pleasure
and business. After six weeks, I have a difficult time being fully
grounded and need some form of travel to take me away from
responsibilities and reality.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reconsidering everything and trying to map out the next chapters.
While I have a strong heart for San Jose and I adore the Bay Area
in general, I've had the great opportunity to travel extensively. I
adore Europe, it's culture, the uniqueness of it's inhabitants, the
artifacts, it's art, the food scene and the utter joy of being in
Europe. In 2013 I did London, Spain and Morocco. 2014 were visits
to Israel, Jordan and Turkey. I'll end the year doing karaoke in
So until I feel I can make the decision to live in London or
somewhere in Europe, I work hard at my job, I live a respectable
life, I help my kids, pay my taxes and consume knowledge for travel
ideas, spiritual growth, expand friendships and try not to stress
to much about the state of the world.
I do spend a fair amount of time going to live concerts of many
genres, but I'm a rock and roller deep down and find myself at both
local and distant venues often.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Brainstorming, planning and executing. Thinking out of the box
without breaking too many physical or perceived barriers. While I
can have a photographic memory, I can also just not immediately
grasp someone's name. I enjoy teaching but not academically and
sharing my journey's trials and tribulations as a learning and
growing experience. I love to write and some have suggested I
should go into radio or do voice-overs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My exuberance, my sometimes goofiness and my willingness to
approach virtually anyone and start a conversation. But when
professionalism is required, I'll adjust my tie and be the quiet,
conservative businessperson. I often don't act my age and strive
hard to maintain this persona.
Whomever I am at the time, I always strive to be a gentleman unless
the situation warrants otherwise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Any book by Daniel Goleman, spiritual growth, Buddhism and modern
literature. I thoroughly loved the "50 Shades" trilogy and enjoy
reading erotic non-fiction, which piques my brain and takes my
fantasies up a few notches. I consume travel books for planning my
next trip, read every AFAR magazine, Dwell for my next home idea,
Bon Appetit for it's luscious food and Rolling Stone to keep
abreast of what's happening musically.
I love to cook and friends have suggested I'm a gourmet. I enjoy
eating out often and try to avoid chains, yet I do have a thing for
The backbone of my life is music of any genre, but particularly
progressive and classic rock. I can be found at Davies, The
Fillmore, Fox, Mt Winery, Stern Grove or any venue presenting what
turns me on. I favor small venues such as the Great American Music
Hall, a dive bar; anywhere with live music. I unwillingly and
begrudgingly attend shows at arenas. I've been known to follow
bands across the country!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son and daughter, friends, music, passport, my brain,
optimism...and the opportunity to get as little sleep as possible.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The immense universe and the miracle of our existence.
What I hope to achieve in life.
Emotional intelligence and Maslow's theory of hierarchy.
What road should I take, how can I pull it off, will I be happy,
will it work, what are the risks, if not now, when?
Finding the love of my life, what will she look like, what will her
personality be, will we mesh and adore each other and our extended
families, will my kids adore her and will her's adore and
appreciate me and mine?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Casually out with friends, doing some necessary shopping, packing
for a getaway weekend, resting up for a busy weekend, doing
absolutely nothing, cooking dinner while listening to music and
drinking good red wine, planning my next adventure. I enjoy
downtime after a busy week, but Saturday night, look out as this is
the blow out night of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You have no idea the wonderful and sometimes nasty thoughts stored
deep in my brain. Perhaps, we'll have the opportunity to mine and
explore these together!

My accomplice should wonder who is this dude on the other side of
this virtual space, a woman whom possesses her own joie de vivre

what possibilities for experience, travel, pleasure and joy truly

I don't get why women seeking relationships with men choose to post
prominent pictures of their dogs. You and your dog is great. Just
your dog? I'm not looking for a relationship with canines, I'm
looking for female-humans!
Please, first and foremost, be an optimist.
