My self-summary
I am an emotionally stable, caring and creative person. I have been blessed with talent but also the drive and intelligence to develop it. I have never been married but have had some wonderful girl friends and of course some not so wonderful. Over the years I have learned a good deal about myself and also about the kind of woman who would be right for me.

I have sown my wild oats and am now ready to settle down with one someone.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a highly trained and experienced bass opera singer who has sung a large repertoire of some sixty roles. I have been singing in the US and Germany for a good number of years. I am also a skilled and popular language teacher and visual artist. I lived several years in France and Italy as a youth and in Germany as an adult. I now also have my own business teaching English as a second language.
I’m really good at
I am a musical and artistic person but also articulate and a clear and rational thinker with an excellent education. I also have natural comedic talents which I bring to bear on social situations which might benefit from them.

I am a patient and empathetic listener which I have learned to be from teaching and from having studied for many years with my late vocal teacher, a truly great pedagogue and a wonderful human being.

I am interested in people from many cultures and I am open to new cultural experiences, having lived extensively in three foreign countries.

I can write poetry. Here below a sample of a sonnet I wrote last year:

On The Bridge

Above the purple harbor boldly spans
The mighty bridge with granite grace whose cables,
Support a solid walkway where we stand.
At center point of downward curve we're able

To scan the glowing dusk above the city.
She feels the southern wind caress her hair
The girls beside me turns with bright eyes pretty,
With pensive mien and parted lips so fair...

I tell the tale: the builder's family's striving,
The father's death, the illness of his son,
Whose faithful wife completion hopes reviving,
Could finally rest-the work of years was done.

Cathedral-like the tower's' mighty arch
Reminds us of the spirit's forward march.

I'm also good at collages and watercolors. If you want to see some, I'll send you my website address.
The first things people usually notice about me
My forthrightness, leadership qualities and humor. Also my speaking voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite authors would be Melville, James, Forster, Proust, Mann and Percy.

Favorite actors: Dianne Keaton, Maryl Streep, Romy Schneider, Julia Jensch, Nick Nolte, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Humphrey Bogart
Six things I could never do without
A hot cup of coffee with milk in the morning
Singing every day
Reading a wonderful book
Seeing a happy child
Feeling thankful for what God has given me
Saying something funny to make someone laugh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better artist
My dream woman
How to make the world a more peaceful place
On a typical Friday night I am
Ready to take my girl out or relax at home with my girl making plans for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
We can get to that later.
