I've never been married, but not for lack of interest or effort -- more like bad timing, bad luck and a couple of relationship decisions I wouldn't make again. I've had several significant relationships for which, despite their demise, I am grateful. In the end, they've left me smarter, happier, healthier and more ready, willing and able than ever to have the great relationship. I'm very commitment and family oriented.
We'll enjoy each other's company if you're smart, funny, laugh a lot, make others laugh and like to talk for hours... if you're a good talker AND a good listener... if you think a great kiss is the sexiest thing in the universe, and that few things are sweeter than when two people’s hands fit perfectly together... and if like being goofy and politically incorrect.
I co-own a media production company which creates broadcast and online content for the arts. We've won 17 Emmys for our shows about Chicago dance, theater and music companies, Broadway shows and tours and social issues. I'm also an Artistic Associate at Lookingglass Theatre Company, board member of Arts Alliance Illinois and very active in Chicago's arts, social issue and advocacy communities. I'm a big baseball and football fan (esp my hometown Cincinnati teams). I'm an avid reader, close follower of current events and politics, and huge movie and music lover. I lean left politically, and enjoy hearing different intelligent, articulate perspectives.
I have amazing friends and a lovable family. Kids and animals like me a lot, and that's as excellent a measure of a life as I can imagine. My photos are recent. I'm in my early 50's now, but don't look, act or feel it, and no one ever guesses my age correctly. I don't want that to sound tacky; I get that it can be a turn-off if someone protests too strongly about their age or appearance. But honestly, it is what it is! I have a wonderful life, and a strong desire to find a new relationship where there's a strong Me, a strong You, and a strong Us. So bring on your genuine, hopeful, happy self and let's see what happens.
