My musical world involves performing with the San Francisco Opera, Symphony, Ballet and smaller classical venues, so I hope that you appreciate classical music . I am also a great fan of jazz and Latin music.
My close friends know that I love to cook and have a passion for and collect wine. Dinner parties are quite common chez moi! I believe that gustatory pleasure is one of the great gifts in life! Enjoying life on a sensual level is essential. I enjoy travel (love Paris and NYC) . I travel at least once a year to France (Burgundy and the south) and I speak enough French to stay out of trouble :-). I am currently studying French at "The French Class"
Being a single dad for 15 years and launching my son on to college and now graduate school has been my greatest and most rewarding adventure. I believe that being a father has been the "centering" experience of my life and taught me a lot about patience, communication and to appreciate the larger view.
I am holding out for the real deal. I am not interested in casual romance. I am truly seeking my muse. I would rather be single than settle. Yes, my expectations are high and you embrace that, because you have ideals and dreams that you are not willing to jettison just to be with "anyone". The things I find attractive in a partner are creativity, great intelligence, love of all things sensual and passion for life.
