I consider myself fortunate. I have a great/going business that I love, a dual career as a professional classical musician, good health, good friends and opportunities to travel. The only thing that is missing is a partner who can dance in counterpoint to the quirky music of my life.
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. I am a complete ignoramus when it comes to popular music, but i am willing to be educated if you have good taste.
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 am an omnivore, so if you are a vegetarian I respect your choice, but you are not a good match for me.
I enjoy travel (love Paris and NYC) . I traveled many times to France in the last few years and to Italy in 2013. I will be going to Madrid this summer (2015) and then on to my beloved Burgundy. It would be wonderful to have a travel companion who loves wine!
I love Art, going to museums, going to gallery openings. I always hit the local museums when I travel. I was a docent at the SF MOMA for about 5 years. I collect art on a small scale ,concentrating on artists from the Bay Area. I draw from the figure regularly. Drawing is my 2nd passion and something I hope to expand on if I can ever retire!
Being a single dad for 15 years and launching my son on to college ,graduate school and a career 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.
Enough about me, who are you? If you have a big brain, a quick laugh and a beautiful smile I am already in your pocket. If you can recognize and appreciate the difference between Monet and Manet we are friends, If you have an expansive heart and know how to love generously, we might just be right for each other. If you are creative, musical, artistic, poetic or just inventive, you could be my muse.
I enjoy meeting new people and I do enjoy dating, but ultimately I am truly seeking my muse. I would rather be single than settle. The things I find attractive in a partner are creativity, great intelligence, love of all things sensual and passion for life.. And above all, love. live and laugh!
