Kidding aside, people who should know say I'm quick-witted and funny, upbeat, enthusiastic, warm, family-oriented, attentive to those I care about, genuine and unpretentious. I try hard to be a good friend (& am blessed with many longtime friends), a good listener and a good communicator.
Believe how we treat others--banker or busboy--is paramount. Find pleasure in many things, both simple and not so simple. Healthy and high-energy. Walk and/or run every day. Also work out, hike, ski, bike, do the steps at the beach....and think about getting back to tennis.
My interests range from books, business, travel, exercise and good food, to the financial markets, movies, the arts, politics and photography. Enjoy my work but have no problem with leisure time. Love to laugh and have an enormous capacity for silliness and fun.
Hiked Cinque Terre and last year Machu Picchu. Paris, Santa Barbara, Aspen, the south of France and Tuscany among my favorite places.
I live on the Westside.
Making people laugh.
What I do professionally.
Being happy....having fun.
Beyond this, probably the entourage and bodyguards.
Some books I've enjoyed recently: "A Gentleman in Moscow," by Amor Towles, and "4321," by Paul Auster.
Among other authors I like: Richard Russo, Pete Dexter, Jo Nesbo, Joyce Carol Oates, Elizabeth Strout.
A sense of humor/laughter
Farmers markets, my ability to count to six and, of course, my yes men.
