Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a 40 year old professional male seeking a unique and
spectacular woman. Values and integrity are extremely important to
me. My reputation for being fair, honest and compassionate defines
who I am. My passions are deep rooted in an intellectual curiosity
that can never be quenched.
Others have described me as “one of the few nice guys left” and “a
true gentleman” but I maintain that I just treat others the way I
expect to be treated. I am unique and I know who/what I am. I know
what I want out of life and believe it’s important to never settle.
In saying that, it’s also important to set realistic attainable
My interests are pretty diverse from exploring NYC architecture to
swimming, billiards, exploring antique shops, and swing dancing. I
enjoy a lazy Sunday morning, lying around doing absolutely nothing
and reading or exploring open houses.
I am Honest, Passionate, and Intelligent.
My MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) results are a strong ENTJ. As
an ENTJ, I tend to look forward into the future and define what the
impact of today's decisions will be several years from now. I also
prefer concepts to details although I have spent enough of my
career getting my hands dirty with the details that I can handle
whatever is thrown at me.
FYI- I strongly disagree with OK Cupid's personality assessment in
a number of areas. Their algorithm skews when you answer a few key
questions, and it may accurately capture most people but not true
for me. The key to understanding any model (mathematical,
statistical, etc) is to realize that models are imperfect.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a learning consultant specializing in capital markets. My
current focus is creating bespoke regulatory training.
I am still working on a book with my father based on our combined
experiences (well mostly his). Maybe one day we will have a
I had removed myself from my condo board- but it didn't take. I
don't really want to do it, but it's a small building, and if you
want it right you have to do it yourself- so I am now President and
Treasurer. This role fills my quota of drama.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am afraid to fail, but I try anyway. I consider myself well
rounded. If I had to put a label on it- I am really good at
digesting information and entertaining a diverse audience on topics
that may interest them. Perhaps I should re-phase that, I am really
good at being a geek. I am quite proud of that too.
I am also really good at being the reluctant leader.
The first things people usually notice about me

Intellect, Kindness (Ha! and OKCupid finds me less kind than
average...Wow), and curious. Physically, I get a lot of compliments
on my choice of frames- conservative yet a bit whimsical. I also
have been told I have a nice butt and nice teeth. I find the teeth
comment amusing because I was told as a child I needed braces,
which my mom refused to allow- since she had braces done
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't have a favorite book- but I do have a favorite author -
Clive Cussler, he writes action-adventure stories. I also read a
great deal of online periodicals on NYC real estate, finance, and
general news. I love science and technology too.
Favorite movies...well if it has a strong plot, great acting, and
settings, it doesn't really matter what genre it is. My interests
are wide- from romances, dramas, independents, action, comedy, etc.
Favorites include movies done by Oliver Stone, George Lucas, Steven
Spielberg, John Hughes, and Martin Scorsese.
Music tastes are mostly 60's-early 90's rock. My favorite artist is
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bah, forget Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs! I love my gadgets (and I
loved them long before it was commonplace). I will leave it at
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Possibilities... sometimes you never know where life can take you.
Ambition, creativity, intelligence, and planning only takes you so
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can certainly answer this for the winter time, but not for the
rest of the year. I really am not a cold weather person, so in the
winter, I would rather be in my apartment staying comfortable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

While I was successfully able to predict the 2008 economic collapse
(almost to the precise month) 2 years prior to the meltdown- I was
still hit pretty hard by it all. While I have gotten my life back
on track, dating has been virtually non-existent for far too long.

Simply put- I am seeking an equal partner. If you have ever seen
Bill and Melinda Gates interact with each other- it's clear that
it's an equal partnership between them.
I have a laundry list of traits that I seek- based on
compatibility, not superficiality.
I am seeking a woman that is: romantic, intelligent, humorous, fun,
sincere, honest, sensual, sweet, caring, has direction and/or
ambition. We will have passionate chemistry, similar values,
compatible personalities and an intellectual peer. She is going to
be unique and difficult to categorize. We will complement each
other in whatever we aspire to in our lives and can always count on
the other to be there, no matter how difficult life gets. She will
have a great sense of humor, style, grace, and values. Please be
local to NYC.
