My self-summary
After a quick detour to Atlanta (my hometown), I'm back to NYC. I've spent about 9 years of my life in the big city, so I'm closing on the New Yorker title soon.

I am quite the adventurer, and love taking advantage of everything the city has to offer: live music events (Terminal 5 / Bowery / Brooklyn), dinner w/ friends (i'm a foodie), cocktails (i used to have a speak-easy hook - Try Little Branch/Bookmarks/Bars & Books), sports (tennis or gym), and movies/films (i'll watch anything).

I am a Southern gentleman, well-educated in the North, boarding school kid, financier/investor, tennis flame-out, romantic, writer, scientist, singer/performer, sports enthusiast, and dreamer. I'm looking for the real thing or just some fun times & a laugh.

I have traveled to 3 continents so far in 2015, but am going to spend more time in NYC now that hopefully the weather gets better in Spring/Summer.

Self-improvement

Honestly, I've been thinking a lot lately about why I can't get Clearly Canadian anymore. also, how i can end up as an executive or board member for either the nba or marvel (now part of disney).

i find myself thinking about my parents & sisters a bunch, what the world will look like in 2025 & 2050. I guess also how right/wrong movies about the future will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typically out w/ friends at a live music show, movie, dinner with friends.
