My self-summary
The quick & dirty:
- Grew up playing sports and I like to stay in shape. Exercise five or six times a week for all sorts of reasons (physical, mental, and now to maximize wave count)
- Lived and worked in Manhattan for fifteen years. Lower Manhatten is my home. Knew it when I was a kid in Long Island, knew when I later moved to MD, knew I would return at the first chance I got.
- Music is a big thing for me, everything from Armstrong and Ella to Sinatra, Allmans, Stones, and Zep, Beatles, Little Stevie to Stevie Ray, Sam Cooke, James Brown (The Godfather), The Cult, the Cars, Sex Pistols, Black Crowes, Blues Traveler, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Radiohead, Run DMC, Tribe Called Quest, JayZ, Phoenix, The Strokes, Spoon, Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, Blind Pilot, Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, and a little Beethoven and Bach sometimes too. Cannot get enough of The Lone Bellow. See them live. Trust me.

- All the normal stuff... Family, friends, food, yadayadayada... OK I realize that's flippant, so I'll let you in on a fun fact - my family and friends are awesome. Seriously. Family gatherings entail multiple generations, tons of love and laughs, great food & drink, multi-instrument spontaneous jam sessions with multi-part vocals and in-the-pocket harmonies. And did I mention love and laughs? I never miss one if I can help it.

- I cook, often. Would be nice to enjoy that with someone sometimes.

- play a little guitar and can carry a tune (it's a genetic thing); bought a ukulele and am loving it

- I don't really have a type, just know it when I feel it, but I'm attracted to sporty, intelligent, classically graceful women with beautiful eyes and a great smile (yup, I know, who isn't?), and a hint of awkward can be captivating too
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it at every opportunity.
I’m really good at
Writing, but you wouldn't know it from this hack job. Public speaking. Vocals. Making people feel comfortable, accepted, and inspired. And kissing. Seriously, I'm a good kisser.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wouldn't know, I don't ask. Maybe my eyes? Or my eyelashes (that used to drive me crazy as a kid)? As I get older, I suppose my youthful vibe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life; Kook: what surfing taught me about life, love, and catching the perfect wave;
Also - Einstein's Cosmos: How Einstein's vision transformed our understanding of space & time; The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, hidden dimensions, and the quest for the ultimate theory... I'm still and forever trying to wrap my mind around quantum physics... Someday.

Big Hero 6!, A Fish Called Wanda, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Jerk, Die Hard, The Godfather, Braveheart, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Hangover, Bridesmaids, Interstellar...
The six things I could never do without
Music, sunshine, sushi, family, friends, travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
These days, surfing. I picked it up late in 2012 in Costa Rica and have been chasing waves ever since. I surf every chance I get. I take as many trips to Costa Rica as I can (I've spent many months there now), CA when I get out there, and Montauk here on the east coast. I'm getting a lot better. I will surf for the rest of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Could be anywhere, but if I'm in town it's usually enjoying a meal out and a few drinks with friends or family. I travel a bit sometimes for work, which often allows me to spend weekends around the country with friends, or just exploring. Would be nice to have someone who could join me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once streaked through Greenwich Village in 18 degree weather. Once.
You should message me if
You have a fun and positive outlook, you love music, and are comfortable and confident in who you are. If you're currently going through a divorce, please give it some time, you need it.
