My self-summary
Active, upscale, sophisticated, well-educated urbanite (with a wonkish nature) pursuing the American dream with honesty, integrity and hard work. Enjoys a cosmopolitan lifestyle and likes traveling to world-class cities.

Born in Rhode Island. Went to college and studied economics. Spent first 4 years out of college in the army and promoted to captain. Moved around for a while and lived in California and Korea before settling down in Baltimore. Had mediocre career with a pharmaceutical company and was downsized after 12 years. Happily, started a successful company which provided me the freedom and independence necessary to satisfy my entrepreneurial nature and spirit.

Just like a bottle of wine, I'm getting better with age. I'm smarter, wiser, healthier and wealthier then I was a year ago. It's important for me to keep improving my mind, body and soul.

I like to think of myself as being urbane and I love art, history culture. I'm addicted to learning. It would also be fair to label me a Renaissance man given my inquisitive nature and boundless curiosity. I'd also consider myself a humanist and care deeply about my friends, my family, my community...
