My self-summary
I have had the good fortune of living, working, studying, playing and traveling outside of the United States for nearly 10 years of my adult life: 6 in Paris and -- most recently-- London, England. Very much a Harlemite (by way of New Haven, Ann Arbor and Boston) my life abroad has pretty much shaped who I am, my manners, style of living and my views of the world. Most would say that I am kind, good-natured, smart, hopelessly romantic, warm, nurturing, thoughtful, loyal and enigmatic.
What I’m doing with my life
Resettling in New York and working incredibly hard (resisting it all the way). Focused on finding balance between long hours in the office and play.
I’m really good at
Photography, cooking, entertaining, listening, problem solving, swimming, writing, cycling, etc
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my smile and easy- going manner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
An English Lit and Philosophy major, Francophile- turned lawyer--I've read more than I can list -- Today, I read an average of 500 pages a week-- less for pleasure and more for work, sadly. Pleasure reading is around the Times, New Yorker and non-fiction, mostly. There are over 3,000 songs in my I-tunes catalogue. I-Tunes Genius has identified the following categories: classical soul; jazz vocals; downtempo-lounge;classical instrumental; techno-house; neo-soul; world: Latin/Brazilian/Africando and others. I love the theatre and dance (but don't often find the time to go (working on changing that) . Friends and family say that I am an excellent chef. I am open to eating and drinking (and cooking) almost anything-- anywhere-- as long as its quality.
Six things I could never do without
Close friends
The beach
The pool
My passport
My Canon 7d
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food and wine. Work, travel, family, friends and ways to have fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working out with my trainer and at home decompressing from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Will tell you later....
You should message me if
You are sincere, smart, kind, educated, reasonably accomplished, caring, fun, stable, grounded, athletic, masculine, adventurous and interested....
The two of us
