Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recently I've spent too much time on work and career, and not near
enough on personal connections. I'm just wrapping up a tough
commute schedule between San Francisco and New York City. Both
great cities, and I kind of feel like a local in both places. But,
San Francisco is home, and I need to take the time to enjoy the
random Giants day game. Or maybe dropping into a gallery opening on
a weeknight. Or a few mental health days when its dumping snow in
Tahoe, and I just have to be there. And especially taking advantage
of all the places you can get to via nonstop flight out of

I'm hoping there are others out there that enjoy variety. muddy
trail runs, and then a nice meal. or a Zombie matinee, then the
symphony. You get the idea. I've spent too much time in the middle,
so maybe its time to see some of the edges that life has to offer.
Nothing crazy. Just different.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping others feel at ease. I think you get to know more about
people when they feel more comfortable and welcomed.
And I think I tell a really good story. Not just one. I know lots

Well, I'm usually kinda witty, so I try to emphasize my humor. I'm
sure there is a psychiatrist reading this that has a diagnosis
already!? Really, it may help! It really does makes me very happy
when those around me are happy and laughing.

Ok, guilty pleasure admit ion here. I love my Kindle Reader. Ok,
I've said it, and I feel better. Really, anything thoughtful,
creative, provocative, and with a bit of historical perspective. I
like fiction, historical works, and I'm enjoying biographies
lately. But, I'm not too hot on autobiographies. They seem too self
serving and preachy for me. I go through stages: Classics like
Hemingway because it reminds me how much can be done in one
lifetime. Historical fictions like Alan Furst, a espionage writer
who makes Europe in the 30s and 40s seem amazing. Cormac McCarthy
because nobody can make violence so casually brutal. Bret Easton
Ellis, because sometimes debauchery just works.
Musically I'm all over the map. I love the classic rock stuff, the
90 alt scene, and more current stuff like the killers, neon trees,
foo fighters etc..I never miss Cris Cornell if he's nearby. But I
also have a serious soft spot for great, well performed live Jazz.
I think its the historical significance that draws me in. I'm
looking forward to this years Montreal and Monterrey Jazz

impromptu concert trip!
Not really any specific type of film fan. I usually get a few days
at the Sundance Film Festival. I've been many times, and I usually
really enjoy the whole scene. Some of the art films are a bit heavy
though. I'm really OK with the mega blockbusters. The indie films
are full of the realities of life, but special effects, mega stars,
and raunchy humor can work for me too. How shallow does that make

Random acts of kindness and compassion by others.
Salty, heavy, ocean air.
Public park spaces for running.
Newspapers: I'm the guy who still buys them. Daily. At a new stand

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my next cup of coffee is coming from! Seriously! You need to
stay caffeinated. I'm racking up the frequent flyer miles, so I'm

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Anything engaging is good for me. Music is huge. The type isn't
near as important as the energy and quality. I'm not a groupie to
anybody, but I do travel for a good show.
If the Giants are in town, I could be there on a Friday.

I really wish I spoke French. I think it would make me the kind of

me one day. Trying to learn., but I revert to Spanish!
Oh, and I just came around on cilantro. I'm a little late to that
