My self-summary
Assume nothing!

The OkC phone app doesn't show all of one's profile pics. I have quite a few so ya gotta go onto your laptop and look at the very bottom.

I would be a great host for Family Feud.

Tall and fit, social, outdoorsy, very handy🔧, creative, resilient.

Road trips, the mountains ⛰and beach🏖, seasons, city life.

I may contact you just to say "cool picture" or "where do you surf" or just "hello". It doesn't necessarily mean I'm looking to latch on. Feel free to do the same!

Me and sailing:
I recently joined the crew of a large race boat on the Chesapeake that sails Saturdays in the Spring and Fall. I’m learning a lot and love every minute of it.
I also recently acquired two sailboats, a 20' cruiser and a 14' dinghy. Let me tell you, the small one is a lot harder to sail than the big one...a lot. I first sailed the dinghy in Stone Harbor's bay and entertained thousands. Peter Travers from Rolling Stone declared me "Hilarious!". Others wrote "Ed at his funniest best!" and "I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!”.

Me and snow:
Yes, despite the Winter of 2014 and 2015 and the volume of sidewalk that I, as a landlord, am responsible for, I love snow.
Snow transforms me into a sleepless energetic nut. If my neighbors are outside shoveling their walks at 3am, I’ll get out of bed and help...even if I don't like them.
On my bday (2/9) the 3rd big snowstorm of the '09/'10 season started and after dinner at my sister's, it was off to the bar to meet friends then onto tying a rope to my truck and being towed around on my friend’s snowboard. Occasionally I'd let him try. After he was burned out, I towed some strangers around on tubes and when they burned out I drove downtown and hung out with the crowd sledding down the Art Museum steps. I went to bed at 3AM only because I wanted to get back up at 5 and start over. I love winter but I don’t like being cold. are you at driving in the snow?

Me and Kelly Drive:
I feel so lucky to live within walking distance of Kelly Drive. I rollerblade it often and there’s no better way to unwind after a day of work or enjoy the tranquility of the river at sunrise on a Sunday.
I don’t like West River Drive though.

Me and other Fun:
Regular hikes in the Wissahickon.
Festivals, art exhibits, hiking, camping, NYC (esp. during Christmas), motorcycles.
What I’m doing with my life
Converting an old sandpaper factory into a 30+ tenant artist community and I'm almost done. I'm eyeballing the former carpet factory across the street to do the same.


Now I'm thinking of buying the local neighborhood market.
It stinks...literally and figuratively.
I could make it on hoppin' place
I’m really good at
I mingle well at parties and love organizing get togethers. I rally the neighbors for 3 block parties a year...Winter, Summer, and Fall.

I'm very mechanically inclined so, fixing things...including things that aren't even broken. I had a choice between heading to the shore for Labor Day w/e or helping my friend get her barn ready for horses. I helped with the barn. I liked the gratification of making something happen and helping a good friend.
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where do fruit flies come from? Do they live in the bananas?
On a typical Friday night I am
Adjusting the firmness of the waterbed in my van and vacuuming the shag. "If this van's a rockin', don't come a knockin'"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like either anchovies and pineapple on my pizza but not at the same time.
