My self-summary
Male RN and assemblage artist/painter, grew up in the NY area, lived and worked in far Northern California (the Redwood Empire) for the last twenty years, but moved to Bradenton, Florida in January, 2017.

I'm a pretty avid golfer, and am interested in financial markets, music, cinema, and a host of other things. I read books and collect (and actually play) vinyl records. I vend stuff on eBay. I love antiques and collectibles and use many vintage "found objects" in my wall-mounted assemblages. Oh, and fantasy football--yeah, I'm one of THOSE guys. I'm looking forward to catching a few spring training games when that starts.

I'm single, no kids, and would like to make some friends, and maybe meet a special one. It's been known to happen, even online. (That's the rumor, anyway.)

The nickname "Atticus" comes from having played Atticus Finch in a production of "To Kill a Mockingbird" a few years ago in community theater in California. With a couple of drinks in me, and if you ask nicely, I might be persuaded to do the lengthy courtroom scene closing argument...in best Gregory Peck imitation..at least as much as I can remember. I also tried stand up comedy at one time.
Now, THAT'S scary!

Anyway, that's it. Signing off, for now. But If any nice local women (a little kooky and eccentric is fine) want to show me around a bit well, I'd be much obliged. And I promise to behave myself. Unless, of course, there is undeniable chemistry, in which case... well...the truth is I'd probably still wait until the next date to make a move. I'm usually pretty worried about being perceived as a "predator," and I know the regret of getting carried away too soon.

Thanks for looking at my profile. All comments, observations, reflections and encouragement appreciated!
What I’m doing with my life
I work in health care. My two main hobbies are art and golf. I go to the gym most days. I love yard sales, movies, photography, and I collect vinyl records. Assemblage---I have been creating, and exhibiting sculptural, wall-mounted, assemblages made from found objects. I've sold about 50 so far. I have an art website.
I’m really good at
Creative things (visual arts, writing) and brainstorming. I'm also pretty good at trivia games.

I'm a decent golfer. Once upon a time I was an 8 handicap. Now I'm a 20. I can still hit the ball a long way. Keeping it in play is my only problem. I need to play morre.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my height, my resemblance to Anthony Perkins. People tell me I look a lot younger than my age. Some just can't believe it. I guess my immaturity is finally paying off, appearance-wise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books--Into thin Air (have read a ton of books on mountaineering and survival in extreme circumstances)
I've always liked Tom Wolfe, John Updike, George Plimpton, John Feinstein, good sports books.
Movies-Scorcese--Goodfellas, The Departed, Casino, Raging Bull, etc.
Almost all Coen Brothers...many, many others. Dramas, mostly, a good Romcom, or Judd Apatow-style edgy comedies.

Music-Currently listening to Radiohead, John Haitt, Bruce, Dylan, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, The Pogues, Richard Thompson, and oldies like Spirit, Love, Traffic, Zep, and of course, the four lads from Liverpool. If I could time travel and go back in time to see any concert, any time, I think I'd like to see the Beatles at the Cavern Club or in Hamburg....or maybe Buddy Holly?...nah...I'll go with Option #1.
Six things I could never do without
excitement of doing and seeing new things
family and friends
creating
good, fresh food
sex (OK...I said it)
interesting women
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want to do in the future, and where I want to do it.

Apropos of nothing, here are 2 nursing school ideas for possible band names..."Exudate" (might be good for a folk or bluegrass duo) and "Valsalva Maneuver" (thinking heavy metal on this one?)
On a typical Friday night I am
could be almost anything or nothing...mostly legal
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of the stranger jobs on my diverse "career path," was working as production assistant for a series on The Playboy Channel for a summer.
You should message me if
If you are single, female, and... well...that's about it.
