Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Eulipion. What is a Eulipion? If you search on YouTube for
"Theme for the Eulipions" you will find a recording by Rahsaan
Roland Kirk. Eulipions are "the artists, musicians, journey agents,
and travelers...". If you are a Eulipion too, read on.
I'm a complicated mixture of elements. Most importantly I'm a
musician. I play multiple instruments and compose. I love
performing and am always looking for new opportunities to do so.
I'm a member of my town's Cultural Council. I have my own group and
also play in a 16 piece big band. I'm a member of Sustainable
Arlington and have done considerable work with other environmental
groups helping them create and manage their websites. I serve as a
board member of a nonprofit organization that does capacity
building. I'm a self-employed consultant who works with lots of
nonprofit organizations as well as with small to medium sized
When I'm not working I enjoy biking, gardening and attending all
sorts of cultural events. I enjoy cooking especially when I can
share a meal with someone special.
I'm looking for a woman who is comfortable with both my musical and
professional lives. I'm intellectual and need to be with someone
who shares a passion for learning and a voracious appetite for
things cultural. I like women who are creative and can share their
artistic perspective with me. I'm looking for a real partnership.
Being creative together would make me very happy. Intimacy can take
many forms and I'd love to play music together or improvise behind
I don't want to sound like I'm not interested in people who aren't
artists, but I definitely need to be with someone who gets the
artist and enjoys being around someone who spends time practicing,
I'm very supportive and hope to find someone who is also
supportive. I'm looking for a partner...I like women who know who
they are and have their own lives.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of music. I perform regularly and am always seeking new
venues. I'm also active in my community. I recently retired after 8
years from the board of directors of a nonprofit that does capacity
building and I'm a member of Sustainable Arlington, the town's
Cultural Council, and I am the founder of a new music production
company that just completed its second concert. I'm an activist and
advocate for issues that I believe in. I'm a self-employed
consultant and entrepreneur.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I'm a jazz musician. I compose as well as perform. I play
multiple instruments: bass, guitar, keyboards, ancient oboes,
percussion instruments from around the world, and scat sing...I
draw from all kinds of music including modern classical,
Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, West African, amonst others.
I love modern art and architecture, beat poetry. I enjoy all kinds
of art but prefer modern to classical. I've been a member at the
MFA for years.
Amongst my favorite poets are: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ted Joans,
Jayne Cortez, and Robert Pinsky.
I enjoy lots of movie genres. I'm not a big fan of action movies or
commercial block busters but have enjoyed them on occasion. My
favorite movies include: "Aguirre: The Wrath of God", Bunuel's
"That Obscure Object of Desire", "Last Stop Wonderland". A couple
of other movies that always resonated with me are Brazil and King
of Hearts. Both should be shown as part of the orientation programs
for most if not all organizations :-). I almost forgot "In Modern
Times" Chaplin's masterpiece!
I love to read and listen to lots of books on CD. My favorite
authors are Umberto Eco and Ian Pears for their historical novels
and I also enjoy Robert B. Parker and other mystery writers for
light reading. One of my recent reads was Ian Pears "Stone's Fall".
I also read non-fiction.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I couldn't live without music or my instruments. Good relationships
are right up there as well. Other things I couldn't do without are
air to breath, food to eat, and a roof over my head |-).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm always thinking about the big picture. I think about politics,
philosophy, the environment and sustainability, the role of culture
in our lives, how we derive meaning in society and how that
reflects on our ability to change society and lots more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a meal at home and playing my instruments. I might have a
gig or might go out to hear some music. If I'm in a relationship I
might be going out to eat and to a movie, concert. I'd love to find
someone who loves to dance to good Salsa. I took lessons some years
ago and would love to practice with someone who can't help dancing
when she hears latin music.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm open to meeting women who find me interesting and want to see
if there is any chemistry. I'm looking for someone who can commit
to a relationship but I know that developing a deep friendship
takes time and is at the core of any good love relationship.
