My self-summary
I am a fun, smart, financially secure, open, positive, physical, loving, responsible, caring, creative, spiritual, athletic, nurturing, independent, successful guy who has run out of adjectives to describe himself.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm also a health and fitness writer who has been successful enough to organize his life in a way that allows time for travel, staying up late and making time for the important people in my life. I also know that life changes pretty fast in unexpected ways-- and my intention is to dive in and appreciate the incredible gifts that surround us everyday.

I'm convinced that the best things in life happen when you are open to possibilities. I am committed to making the best of any situation-- and am still optimistic enough to believe we are one good date from finding that person that makes life that much better.

A lot can happen over a cup of coffee.
I’m really good at
uncovering adventure, finding the good in people, being generous, foot rubs, back rubs, doing dishes, saving, investing and spending money, appreciating life's pleasures, smiling. intimacy, listening. making this moment count. parenting, basketball. running, writing, tadasana.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, easy going nature and calm, strong confidence. They may also notice me doing yoga and running or sitting in the front row of an Ironpigs or 76ers game.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a strong taste for all things Italian: food, vegetable gardens, accordion music, its cities and rural villages, and Life is Beautiful. But at heart, I'm all All-American and love a tailgate or cookout, Raymond Carver, East of Eden and To Kill a Mockingbird, Pee Wee's Playhouse and Planet of the Apes. Elf and The Natural. Ken Burns and Ira Glass. Elvis -- Costello and Presley. My inner soundtrack is ridiculously jammed with Alternative (past, present, pop, ska and punk) and just about everything but self-indulgent jazz (blech). I also wrote and recorded an album of "love" songs that, looking back, are more about surviving love than creating it. Maybe it's time for the sequel.

I love good shows, bad movies, great TV and practically any sporting event.

I stopped drinking several years ago yet am very comfortable around any situational drinking. However, after a series of love interests that were heavy drinkers, let's just say I've made that mistake enough for this lifetime. If you still like getting drunk from time-to-time, I'm not your guy.

The current list of books that changed my life is topped by Anthony DeMello's Awareness. A very short read that had me rethinking everything.
The six things I could never do without
1. Windows that open to fresh air
2. A big bed
3. the touch of skin on skin
4. Something to write on, with
5. Iyengar Yoga
6. The Land: Trees, Lakes, Gardens and Open Fields
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1. How to know and be known by others.
2. My coursework in Positive Psychology, the science of happiness and high performance
3. What needs to be done and how to do it.
4. Running, eating well, and how to take care of myself and others
5. Cooking
6. Tantra
On a typical Friday night I am
eating, laughing and staying up past midnight. WOO HOO. If I have my 9-year old (about every third Friday) then she comes first. After she's had her fun and fallen asleep, I stay up late to talk, watch a game, movie or work on a personal writing project.

When I'm on my own, I catch live music (all kinds other than country) and theatre whenever I can and enjoy live sporting events. Big Phillies fan and Very Big Sixers fan. I've had season tickets to both over the years (and still currently do for the Ironpigs) but now only go to a few games a year.

I love mountain biking, hiking, swimming in lakes, snow, campfires and fireflies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I did not expect to be here.
You should message me if are who you are and open to what's possible in life

... you can both give and receive a warm, loving presence in your life can laugh at all this
