Friends tell me I'm intelligent, literate, creative, fun, patient,
affable, affectionate, charming and mostly housebroken. (I have
trouble keeping my elbows off the table.)
I am ultimately looking for a long term committed relationship but
intent on having fun in the process.
I moved to the Bay Area from Texas in 2012 and feel invigorated by
the change in latitude and attitude.
I am an amateur singer and a not very accomplished dancer (salsa,
bachata, and swing). I enjoy dancing, hiking, movies, the theater,
museums, and live music in smaller venues (too many arena concerts
in my younger days).
I like all kinds of music but I’m most fond of jazz. I like
classical music now and then; even if it’s modern or experimental
or maybe especially if it’s that.
I'm not a big sports fan but I will sit still for the Super Bowl
most years. (The truth is, I watch it for the commercials.)
I don't hunt or fish. I get my meat at the grocery store, thanks.
And I don't like to watch cars run laps.
I don’t watch much TV except for movies now and then. I truly
believe that old people don’t wear out – they rust out. I need to
I can make good dinner conversation and I can make a good dinner.
And I enjoy a spirited debate. My critics might say I like to
argue. I'm a lousy liar and so I avoid even trying these
I put a great deal of effort into taking responsibility for my
emotions as I consider this an important aspect of my life journey.
I am coming into alignment with the universe and my greatest good.

What we're all doing I think. Trying to make life an adventure.
I’m really good at
Singing, dancing, telling stories (some of them are true!) and
The first things people usually notice about me
After my rugged, tan good looks, women often notice my shoes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of nonfiction: How Music Works, The Language of
Feelings & Risking are recent favorites. I'm reading the Life
of Pi now. I love movies but don't go very often. Too busy with
other things, I guess. I like music I can dance to. I like all
kinds of food. I especially like food I didn't have to cook. I try
to eat low-carb.
The six things I could never do without
I spent a good part of my life trying to acquire beautiful things.
Now, I consider it a marker of my growth that I am learning just
how much I CAN do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is my responsibility and what is not. The older I get, the
more I see gray areas instead of black and white.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dining, dancing, running, doing, moving & shaking or sometimes
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a very open person. I'm willing to tell you everything. But,
I'm not dumb enough to put it in writing and certainly not on the
