My self-summary
Intense. Empathetic. Idealistic. Sentimental.

I live on the South Shore and work in Cambridge. Have car, will travel. Adventures are always necessary.

I'm passionate about the arts and justice. I avoid small talk like the plague. I prefer animated conversation causing uproarious laughter.

I believe in respect and dignity. My most satisfying friendships have a strong foundation of trust.

My work is a worthwhile grind. I solve problems. I don't give up easily.

Live music. Theatre. Art. Museums are what keep me going. Good friends, family - joy and laughter are essential fuel propelling me through life.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the Director of Marketing for a professional theater company.

Why? Kurt Vonnegut said: "[The arts] are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."
I’m really good at
Balancing signal versus noise.

Finding humor in unexpected places, burst the bubble of tension.

Growing a beard.

Being game, open, and willing for wonder, uncertainty, adventure and fun. Sharing silence comfortably.

Meandering, tangential conversations.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard. Red shoes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music, books, and movies are as much nourishment as food. No list can be comprehensive, enough.

Books: Vonnegut, Shakespeare, Michael Chabon, Stegner. Crossing to Safety, Station Eleven. I read plays for work. I am always looking for more titles - of any type - to read.

Movies: The Last Station, The Beginners, Stranger Than Fiction, Casablanca, Shakespeare in Love, The Last Waltz, The Big Lebowski, Talledega Nights (yes, when it comes on, I can't help but watch and laugh.

Music: Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Springsteen, Josh Ritter, Greg Brown. Good lyrics. Good music. Emotion. Who should I be listening to that I haven't discovered yet?

Food: Farmer's markets and roadside stands, grilling, and eating local. Greasy spoons and dives. I'm open to all cuisines.
The six things I could never do without
My niece and nephew's smiles and giggles.
Curiosity. Imagination. Inspiration.
Artistic expression in any medium.
Reflective contemplation (alone or with others)
Companionship of friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to maintain comfort with uncertainty and adventurous state of bliss, whimsy, and balance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Desiring distraction from the exhaustion that has set in from my week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was five, I used to go out on my front lawn in the summer and sing "Oh, what a beautiful morning...."
You should message me if
You smile.
You're strong.
You swear.
You laugh.
You're whimsical.
Sometimes, maybe, you even find yourself laughing uncontrollably.

Just write and let's have a conversation.
