My self-summary
I am an easy going, open minded, intellectually curious guy who loves music, books, art, food (vegetarian), wine, coffee, travel and more. I am originally from the midwest (Milwaukee) and have also lived in Denver (6 years) and Barcelona (2 years). I have now lived in Portland for a little over 5 years and love it here. My maternal grandparents were born and raised in Italy and I want to retire there, if everything goes right. I like going to funky, high quality restaurants and lounges (Observatory, Sapphire Hotel, Horse Brass, Victory, etc.). I am pretty open to trying anything once, but they must have a decent veggie menu. I am vegetarian but do eat dairy and some seafood. I have both a Bachelor's degree (Accounting) and an MBA (Strategy and International Business), although I have taken non-standard paths after receiving both of those degrees.
I’m really good at
Cooking, laughing, conversing (intelligently) with just about anyone, philosophizing, I know a lot about music, mediating, talking, writing, making people feel at home, listening and having a good time on a basic human level.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I am very polite and well spoken and ease into conversation with just about anyone. I am usually personally presentable and very rarely am I negative.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hmmm, well I love all types of music, mostly with an alternative twist, including: Rock, jazz, world, bluegrass, folk, classical, choral, experimental, etc. Popular overplayed stuff is mostly out. I love movies and lean towards Indie films but I love some more traditional movies like: Pink Panther films (especially A Shot in The Dark), Once, Trading Places, About a Boy, Waking Ned Devine, Happy Go Lucky, Spirited Away, Slumdog Millionaire, and more. I love literature/books and my tastes are all over the place. I am vegetarian and love to cook (I am a very good cook). My favorite foods are Italian, Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern.
Six things I could never do without
Food (well cooked and prepared)
Water (Lakes, rivers, oceans...)
Sun - doesn't have to be always but I need it's rays just to soak in.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might go out for dinner or a few cocktails with friends, but if I do stay in I like to watch stand-up comedy on Comedy Central.
