My self-summary
I can be cerebral (PBS, literary sci-fi, Shakespeare, museums, lectures), but I also embrace my physical side (hiking, kayaking, cycling, yoga, throwing a ball or frisbee, bowling, etc.) and I love to be outdoors in the woods or at the ocean. Some of my interests are a bit geeky (board gaming, comics, etc.) however I am a social, outgoing, and friendly person. I'm told that I am: frank, open, warm, intelligent, insightful, well-spoken, kind, and fun.

Please, don't hestitate to contact me if you are shorter than me. Your height does not matter to me at all. (Shorter than me or taller than me - it's all good!) Also, please, read the "you should message me if" section before contacting me. I'm only interested in meeting men who don't live too far away from me. Thank you. :)

I read mostly sci-fi. I enjoy comics and graphic novels - especially biographical ones like "Persepolis". I watch a lot of PBS (mostly documentaries), and a couple of sci-fi shows. I attend at least half a dozen outdoor theater performances each Summer - mostly the plays of Shakespeare. I also like to spend at least one Wednesday a month at the Bronx Zoo.
The six things I could never do without
in no particular order: documentaries, PBS, close friends, sci-fi books, the outdoors/natural settings, and animals/wildlife.

(of course, most of these I could do without, I just would not be happy about it!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe at a party, or at a movie meetup. (http://www.Meetup.com) Perhaps at MoMA watching a film or two, or at an Astronomy lecture. Or, sometimes I'm just at home watching a DVD or reading a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
'Silly question... I'll use the space for something else:

Some of my favorite places in New York are: Fort Tilden, Socrates Sculpture Park, the Bronx Zoo, Coney Island, Rockaway Beach, Floyd Bennett Field, Green-Wood Cemetery, Inwood Hill Park, Prospect Park, Central Park, the Brooklyn Museum of Art (BMA), the Jewish Museum, P.S.1, and MoMA.

In the Summer, I like to go to outdoor movies, and live (outdoor) music concerts. I like camping, and spend as much time kayaking as I can.

I also like: sailing (Sunfish?), contra dancing, regency dancing, and acting (but I haven't done any of these things in a REALLY long time!)

Years ago when I took the OkCupid.com personality test, I twice received the result of "the Peach". More recently when taking the same test, I received the result of "the Maid of Honor".

I wear eye glasses.
You should message me if
...anything in my profile has piqued your interest and: you're single and monogamous, live within easy travel distance from me, do not smoke cigarettes, you're an Atheist, Agnostic, Jewish, or non-religious... :)

If you live more than 10 miles away from me, please, do NOT contact me. I will NOT be interested in talking with you. I am only interested in meeting people who live in: Queens, Manhattan, some parts of Brooklyn, and Hoboken.
