My self-summary
I am a modern day Renaissance man and have lived in Providence for quite sometime. I tend to get along with people who are laid back with a good sense of humor and have a soft spot for people who are offbeat or quirky but grounded. I can be very passionate about the things that I care about. I am honest and open. I am not really interested in online romance as you can't kiss a computer, well maybe you could, but that's not my thing.
What I’m doing with my life
I own and manage property on the Westside of Providence. I teach at RISD and URI. I make a lot of art and I am involved with a couple of non-profits.
I’m really good at
I am good at spoiling people and making them feel special. I am good at taking photographs. I was a photo major at RISD. I am good at drawing, painting and making art and enjoy talking about art and visiting museums. I am good making people laugh and finding humor in the everyday. I am good at massage and a pretty good cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure. Maybe my eyes. They are hazel and change color.

Locally I like Nick's on Broadway, Julians, Angelos, Duck & Bunny, Garden Grill, Al Forno, 121, Thai Star, Mi Guatemala, New Rivers, AS220, Gracies... Providence has a lot of great places to eat.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How people use energy in buildings and in their lives and how to improve it and this is what I teach at RISD. The history of drawing and painting and what I might bring to that. Making plans with friends and family to get together. Eating right and exercising and doing the stuff that I know makes me happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a typical Friday night. There is always something going on in Providence though and I am usually out on the town. You could just as easily find me at a black tie fundraiser as playing pool at a dive bar or at an art opening. Sometimes it is nice to stay home on Fridays and relax and gear up for the weekend especially with the right person.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was diagnosed with CML Leukemia in May of 2014 and while it has slowed me down, I am kicking its ass and starting to feel healthy again. If that's a turn-off to you, then it's best not to contact me. I will have this for the rest of my life or until they find a cure. Ask me if you want to know more.
You should message me if
You are interested in meeting for a cup of coffee or lunch and see where it goes. I don't have a lot of expectations and truly enjoy meeting new people. I am more interested in getting to know people in person than online.
