Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update for the New Year:
I am interested in men who live close to, or in Manhattan, I would
love to begin a sharing relationship with someone who understands
the meaning of partnering and nurturing. I'll have your back and
you will have mine. I am ready for everything in the next chapter.
So take my hand and we'll share new things!
Pace E Bene,
( Peace and good things ), for 2015
Below is my original profile.
I like it when someone finds me before I even thought of looking
for them. Surprise, I'm "it" !
I am here in Manhattan, to explore new interests. I recently left
my work as a writer/actor; a career that I was very dedicated to
for 35 years. I am currently involved in designing wearable art.
It's a wonderful way to get my concepts off the walls and into the
public. I am enjoying the opportunity of artistic independence. I
love treasure, and eternal questing but also get a great deal of
inspiration from my young, adult children, friends and
I am a storyteller and have a big personality. I love a lot of the
"70s" culture and music and can remember the details of every
concert I went to, back then. I have been a mentor for 18 years and
have made friends from 8-96. My life changed when I chose to adopt
a handicapped orphan and my journey has everything to do with
raising him to overcome impossible odds. I always have something to
teach and something to learn. I appreciate the journey so much more
than the result! CURIOSITY!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My next venture is working on a project with a major art museum in
NYC. We will be taking art therapy to cancer patients who want to
find self-healing, recovery methods outside the medical and
psychiatric communities. I recently had a show at the National
Textile Museum in Umbria, Italy and was included, in the 9/11
Memorial Museum exhibit, "Hope for 2020". I have been working on my
apartment: using my newly acquired skills as a craftsman and am
currently back at SVA, enjoying the metalwork department and the
galleries in Chelsea.
I want to meet other community oriented people who love to focus on
improvement projects. It's also time to expand my entire social
circle. Always working towards having more energy, as well as
creating a better diet. I am trying to use the city more fully now
that I can work with a flexible schedule. There is just no more
time to waste on what ever went on in the past. I have everything I
need TODAY and just want to meet a few terrific men to share ideas,
activities, travel and fun. If I discover the right chemistry then
I will certainly consider a serious, committed relationship.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making time for people who need my advice, taking on leadership,
remembering all the lyrics to Sondheim's entire works, getting
everywhere w/o a car, theater dance and
creating beauty in difficult circumstances.
BTW:I would like them to amend these profile structures and have
people remark about what they are really lousy at...or what they
forgot to attend to along the road.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I give everyone the benefit of a smile, my really,
really long hair and interesting jewelry. My love affair with the
color purple and those tiny feet...
Anyway, that's the male commentary!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Currently I read a lot about metal working, travel, start-ups and
design. Lots of stuff on ex-pats. Shakespeare, French and Italian
comedy for classics. I have a huge fixation on Stephen Sondheim
musicals and Verdi...both of which I tried to sing for years. Let's
not forget the viseral side of the coin: Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood
Mac and the Who. Then there's Leonard Cohen...
I love bad boy movies...old Sean Penn, Christian Slater, Nick Cage,
Hugh Grant stuff, (quirky is my thing ). Somehow, I have always
loved Jeff Bridges, regardless of time or portrayal. Call me
inconsistent. Also a huge Mike Leigh fan and love his attention to
I hit the restaurants that have 1/2 price specials because I
unilaterally will NOT pay for ambiance, but if you want to take me
to world class dining spots, I wouldn't try to wrestle you out of
the idea. I love to eat but my dancing, those happy jeans and my
health are more important. I miss Spumoni..the real old stuff we
ate as kids. always up for spicy Indian food, scones or baked
french fries w/blue cheese...let's really be honest: the holiday
buffet at the Waldorf! I am trying to stick with salads and
fabulous fruits but I seriously would walk a mile for Lavazza
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My children, NYC, my "just go do it" back-pack, my obsession with
trying to get older people to move on with the developments of the
next generation, ( yes, even if it's hard), my hope for eternal
youth, knowing how to pull the escape hatch, My fear of change and
the fact that I do it anyway.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I lived through all the outrageous circumstances of the last
five years. What would have happened to my adopted kids if I hadn't
decided to go to Russia. How lucky I am to have so many good things
that matter. How important it is to get out of this country as
often as you feel you should. How cool to have a will of iron and
the creativity to act on my instincts. All the improvements I could
make on designing this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is a typical Friday night? I have never been anywhere where
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really would have liked to have been a tall, red head for a

It was probable that I was Annie Oakley in a prior life. Even her

What I wrote does not sound like a foreign language. You actually
like what I wrote and think you are the bread for my sandwich.
People always say you are unique. You are an artist in your
approach to all your work. You are concerned with bringing beauty
to the world. Whenever people say it can't be done, you're the guy
who does it anyway. You have changed peoples' lives and they've
said so. You can sit on the floor w/o a chair and get up fluidly.
You are seriously funny, even silly, really truthful and always
found it was better to meet people through hanging out because
dating gives you allergies. You look comparatively as good as you
did as a young man...just older.
You really think you've discovered something wonderful and you want
to share your secret...
