I aspire to do more work, perhaps first as volunteer, do bring mindfulness and meditation to disadvantage populations. I'm starting to work with a program like that in San Quenten. I love living on the beach in Marina Bay, near Pt. Richmond.
I got divorced 7 years ago and am the proud father of twin 9 year old girls who live in Portland OR and whom I see during their school vacations and every 6 weeks for a long weekend. My relationship with my ex, after a lot of hard work, has never been better.
Music: Upbeat Pop/Rock is my prime thing, everything from Dylan, the Beatles, especially George Harrison, to Red Hot Chili Peppers, SemiSonic, Springsteen, The LAs, Roy Orbison. Jazz is good, more old school, and definitely Latin music -- Juanes, Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Nouveau Flamenco -- but not so much Rap/Hip Hop.
Other: I love live theatre and stand up comedy, One of my bucket list items is to spend a week in NYC going to great theatre every day.
Food: I eat just about anything except fast and/or unhealthy food, I cook lots of Asian, vegetarian, etc. Ex-foodie, now following a pretty simple food plan with no sugar or flour products to avoid my family history of obesity, diabetes heart disease and all that comes with it.
Magazines: Reading the New York Review of Books New Yorker,
Books: Reading the Innovators, a history of the orignis of the computer and the Internet. Often read non-fiction (The Black Count, Imperial San Francisco, Emperor of Maladies, the UnWinding, Thinking Fast and Slow) and non-profit management -- Lean Startup, Forces for Good, Good to Great -- and a lot of mysteries, thrillers and sci-fi on the plane like Michael Connolly, George R.R. Martin, Lois McMaster Bujold, John Scalzi, Neal Stephenson. Favorites are old adventure novels -- Alexander Dumas's Count of Monte Cristo is my all time fave -- and historical fiction.
How happy I am after recovering from the emotional and financial wreckage of my divorce, living an amazing second half of my life.
You're smart, comfortable in your own skin, powerful (I am not only not intimiidated by strong powerful women, it is what I prefer). Upbeat, funny, positive and grateful
You are in decent physical shape and the beach, cycling or something outdoors and athletic plays a role in your life
you know how to communicate effectively in a relationship and have difficult conversations with love and compassion
You are comfortable being involved in a committed relationship with someone who still has young children, even if I have them only 25% of the time.
