My self-summary
After many memorable years in the entertainment industry as a sound mixer & producer, I am now a financial advisor helping my clients plan for their future and achieve their goals. I am a great believer in personal responsibility, ethics and kharma. My 2 adult children are my greatest pride and most precious asset. I play guitar almost every day since I was 13. I get great satisfaction watching things grow.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying from the wings as the lives of my son & daughter play out. Staying as active as possible, which is one of the keys to longevity. Eating healthy and getting some exercise. Giving something back whenever possible. Continuing to learn and grow is important to me.
I’m really good at
Listening, seeing the positive, patience, negotiation & keeping it simple
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not 6 feet tall! and I often don't act my age (thank goodness).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My most recent read is "Everything is Illuminated" by Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm proud to say my son Adam turned me on to it. It tells the tale of a young man that travels to the Ukraine to discover his ancestry and confront his past. With a unique way of both mauling and energizing the English language, this novel is like no book I have ever read. I am also a voracious devourer of periodicals..........have to stay current, you know.

Having been in the film & TV industries in the past, I am rather selective about my film faves, and even more so about television, much of which I find easy to dismiss.
Film-wise, give me the original Sunset Boulevard or All About Eve anytime. Young Frankenstein and my friend Mel Brooks will always make me laugh. Scorsese can generally do no wrong. The film Away From Her will always make me cry.
For TV, the History channel, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Anthony Bourdain and The Colbert Report do nicely.

Music.....where to start? I really wanted to be a writer of song, but alas, did not make the cut. But, I studied music at school, have been playing guitar almost every day since I was 13 (I know more than 3 chords now!), and spent many thousands of hours in the recording studio working with truly talented people. Music has been and continues to be a salvation. Music has long been my best & truest friend. It is much easier to list what I don't like than rattle off what I love. But give me some heartfelt blues, Gershwin, Porter, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Mozart or Woodstock-era R&R and I am a happy man. Clapton is still a god (small g).
Hearing live performance is a gift. Performing live is even better.

Food can be a sensual adventure. I enjoy experimenting and experiencing new tastes. I could live on sushi, Thai and Indian fare, but I will always find a place for good Italian or French cuisine. I am fairly adept at the backyard grill and getting better indoors, too. Cooking a meal with a lover can be one of life's special events. Cooking alone is simply subsistence.
The six things I could never do without
Music, beauty, kindness, challenge, purpose and love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Did I forget anything? Am I really hungry?? Did I leave any evidence???
Really, the future takes up a large part of my imagination. I also constantly ask myself if there is anything else that can be done. Usually there is!
On a typical Friday night I am
If at home, I'm playing guitar, and either watching Bill Maher or reading. If out and about, I could be anywhere!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will admit in private.
You should message me if
You laughed at least twice reading the above.
