Here are some facts that provide some context about me:
1. When I make short ribs, I wrap them in bacon and cook them for 48 hours.
2. I don't split checks.
3. I was once incarcerated in a foreign jail.
I have many responsibilities and just enough free time. I work hard and occasionally play too hard. I don't fix things; I believe in calling in the experts. I love to cook, and have learned to sear fish to restaurant quality.
I have the world's most fabulous almost eight year old on the planet, who I share equally with the world's most fabulous ex-wife.
I have a large group of friends, with whom I sometimes still watch the sun rise. They range in age from 21 to 46. I have put up some pictures to give you a sense of who else comes along with me.
While I do go out a lot, I like renting houses in sonoma and hosting long weekends there with my friends. I dream about building a retreat in Inverness or Sonoma where I can have all my friends and family visit.
My two favorite possessions are an old Fender Stratocaster, which I bought when I was 15 years old, and a new set of Japanese knives.
Unless you cover me with kisses, I am unlikely to go to the ballet, opera, or the symphony -- just being honest here-- but I am happy hit SFMoma or the De Young for an exhibit.
