Okay, you probably want to know about me. So, my bio in brief: Until I was 7, I grew up in a ghetto in Chicago, which started to make me a little too slick for my own good, but we moved out of there in time – to a small, idyllic Midwestern town. I suddenly found myself living in a Normal Rockwell painting – but it was great. I pulled straight A’s in school, and spent all of my free time either playing sports or hiking in the woods with my dog. But as soon as I got out of high school, the town felt REAL small, so it was time to start traveling.

Eventually I settled down in San Francisco and loved the City - so many fun, smart, eccentric people here! I spent my time starting up sales/marketing companies, studying philosophy and psychology at SF State, playing in a punk rock band (briefly - I'm not the world's best musician), and making friends with lots of the interesting characters I was meeting along the way.

I've often taken off for months at a time to go live in new places, just to get to experience a new culture and way of living - Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, Bangkok, Manhattan....

I'm retired from business now, and spend my time managing my real estate investments, doing charity work, and pursuing my life-long dream of being a failed novelist.

I’m slowly recovering from an old body-surfing injury (inner ear) that got made worse recently by a bad attempt at medical treatment for it, so for now, I'm very sensitive to sudden noises, so I need to spend my time in very quiet environments. It’s limiting, but it is what it is, and it’s my opportunity to learn how life can change on a dime, and to gain compassion for others who have had much worse things happen to them.

Shows - I'm not much of a TV fan, but just checked out Breaking Bad - and binge-watched all 62 episodes on Netflix. Very well done....

Food - healthy, healthy, healthy. And yes, chocolate is healthy.
