My self-summary
I'm not sure why I'm here, but with my luck something good will
come of it! I'm a Chicago native who spent some time in Manhattan on Wall St. but decided to return home. Moving back to Chicago, I lived in the Lincoln Park neighborhood until the need for good schools drew me to the suburbs. Moving out to a village with green lawns and mature trees, with winding roads has had a very calming effect on me . The commute into the city by train to my office everyday has given me time to read that new novel or that seemingly endless supply of financial reports my profession requires .My twin sons have grown up to become academics and professionals. After my marriage ended I found myself spending more and more time downtown. I have always considered myself a city person at heart but I have not been able to move back completely .The vitality and excitement of the city is in my blood. I enjoy the arts, good music and great food . I think that the here and now is a much more enjoyable place to live. I'm looking for someone creative and intelligent, who enjoys sharing herself.Life is too short not to be fully lived .
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an investment professional who should have never left art school just to make money. I regret not giving in to my short term desires, so I am trying to make up for it now. I am a responsible loving father and a great best friend. I love to read , learn and grow.
