My self-summary
I'm endowed with a magical tongue (seriously!) which allows me to speak multiple languages, tie cherry stems into knots and taste the different gradations of spicy food.
What I’m doing with my life
Embracing the beautiful transience of life, figuring out how to spread love and pleasure and social consciousness, while reflecting some of the marvels around us.
I’m really good at
making a white wine reduction for risotto, giving toe curling back massages, taking photos that snare the eye, talking literature and art, going on hikes, playing sport, and traveling the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
might not be that I've noticed them first, but I just might have done so, being a keen observer. Otherwise, things like my height (nearly 2 metres), my gaze (soulful), or taste (refined) might be easy to see while my silliness and steel might take longer to recognize. I've been told that I fit the profile of tall, dark and handsome to a T ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many spring to mind, to make an adequate list. I love everything from novels like Kundera's Unbearable Lightness of Being, Roy's The God of Small Things, Nabokov's Speak, Memory, Saramago's Blindness to nonfiction like Mary Karr or poetry like Anne Carson.

I love classic films like La Dolce Vita, or American Beauty or The Shawshank Redemption; to animated documentaries like Waltz with Bashir; to international films like Rashomon to Pather Panchali; to absurd comedies like Boomerang or The Big Lebowski;

I can make and love to eat Caesar salad, malai kofta, sushi, brick oven pizza, gnocchi, tiramisu, waffles, artisanal cheeses (ok I can't really make these but I can appreciate them!) and fine wine.
Six things I could never do without
-The letters and photos I've written and received from many people, acclaimed and unknown, over the course of many years and countries.

-My innate romantic core that refuses to leave life's party hopeless without finding someone glimmering to glimmer back at while the rest of the evening throbs away from us.

-Clean, drinking water and fresh produce.

-My signed first edition of James Baldwin and many other books as well.

-Passport emblazoned with entry and exit stamps from six continents (not Antartica yet, but soon!)

-Primrose and hyacinths in the spring, heirloom tomatoes in the summer, butternut squash in the fall, wool and lace in the winter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I'd frame a photo, pleasure or treasure my love, accomplish my next project, bring friends back together, create a lasting work of art.
On a typical Friday night I am
nothing is typical; I might be listening to jazz with live musicians, or eating some tasty food before going out dancing, or I might be curling up with a book uninvolved in the frenzy of Fridays but preparing to drift from dream into the next place I'm called to see and to describe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
scars are a source of beauty...and sometimes I go commando.
You should message me if
If you want to go out and have a good time, and see where it takes us.
