I'm a regular guy, friendly and warm hearted, with a good sense of
humor, and usually pretty laid-back. Upbeat and optimistic most of
the time, but hey, I have my moments.
Enjoy movies, theater and plays, museums and art openings, stand-up
comedy and improv, live vocal and instrumental music at small
venues, and two-step country western dancing. I like engaging
conversation, and always up for hanging out, talking, laughing and
spending time with friends. Music is a life long passion of mine,
especially jazz. I'm at the gym or swimming pool quite a bit, and
enjoy working out, and often take long mid-day walks in the City.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going through a bit of a life renaissance right now. Winding
down both a thirty year career and a twenty year business that I
created. Re-examining where I've been, sifting, sorting, letting go
of stuff I don't need, and updating my relationships with family,
friends and especially myself. I'm creating a new path for myself
for the future, working toward being someone new, and excited about
exploring what's next for me in life.
