My self-summary
Hi – so nice to almost virtually meet you.

But first, a wee bit of protest. I’m going to take this opportunity to say that I’m not entirely comfortable with this cyber-resume means of introduction but, probably like you, have come to accept the necessity of it. Now, having now bitten the hand that feeds me, to begin….

I am a relatively tall, slender man blessed with two six-year-old twin sons and the occasional capacity for charm. I’m pretty smart, as these things are measured, though not a Mensa member and I sometimes feel that I’m one of the very few people who don’t have an advanced degree. I’m usually pretty quiet and, possibly as a result, have been credited with being “deep”. It’s possible that I’m one of the most empathetic people that you’ll ever meet.

Music is very important to me. I like listening to classic rock, classical music, jazz and boogie-woogie. I’ve recently picked up the guitar again and am trying to teach myself how to play – hopefully correctly this time. I take it as an encouraging sign that the neighbors haven’t complained – yet.

I like just about anything to do with the water. I’d love to sail more often but haven’t had the time/opportunity to do so in a while. I also like camping, hiking and, though it’s been a while, hashing.

I like to cook. I think cooking a meal with a certain someone over a glass of wine or two is a great start to a wonderful evening.

I guess I have to admit to being something of a geek in my intellectual interests (history, anthropology) and manners (incorrigible door-holder).
What I’m doing with my life
Getting on with it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll have to check the latest polls...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A work in progress, but a sample would be:
John Irving, Hemingway, Conrad, Twain, Dickens, Stephen King, Graham Greene, Shakespeare, Homer...
Frankenstein, Young Frankenstein, Psycho, The Shootist, The Legend of 1900, The Reservior Dogs...
The Who, Mozart, Cream, Bach, Crosby Stills, Nash & Young, The Indigo Girls, Little Feat, Chopin, Louis Jordan...

Thai, Sushi, Meat & Potatoes, French, Italian - I'm an unabashed carnivore and not very good at eating my veggies.
Six things I could never do without
My sons, family, friends, music, access to the ocean and travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Well, how did I get here?"
On a typical Friday night I am
With my sons, chilling after the workweek or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ha, ha, ha...
You should message me if
You have a curious mind.
The two of us
