Own a Hedge Fund consulting firm and love what I do, but my true passion is for art, more specifically painting/sculpting. I can’t say I’m very good (yet), but can say it’s something I want to ultimately do full time so am hoping the finance thing will serve as a means to an end.
As for other interests; snowboarding has been a life-long passion, the cooking thing is a work in progress and, I try to get out to see live music whenever possible. Am also a bit of a gym-rat and take fitness/diet pretty seriously.
That said, easily the best things in my life are my friends and family. Have an amazing, high-quality group of people around me in NYC and come from a family of seven (i'm right in the middle of four sisters whom I adore).
Looking for a sharp, sexy, introspective, down to earth woman who can hang in cold weather, has an interest in art and music, is serious about health/fitness and can occasionally (and convincingly) lie to my face when I cook bad food.
EDIT: 3 of my boys said that i'm a wiseass. Two girlfriends of mine said smile/dimples, one of my sisters said disarming (although I think the last one is a bit subjective).
I will update this as more data comes in...
The Prince of Tides
The Fountainhead (even though it took me roughly 6 mos. to get through)
Many Lives Many Masters (perception-changer)
Anything regarding quantum mechanics and/or astrophysics (The Elegant Universe is excellent and yes, I' am most certainly a dork.)
Currently trying to get through Anna Karenina. Not going well.
Update: Anna Karenina has officially been shelved. I don't care if it's the greatest book ever written, there should be a 1,000 page cap instituted across the book world and, there's just too many damn characters.
