I'm a licensed boat captain: I do boat charters and sailing instruction as a second career in addition to yacht sales. walking, hiking, and sailing in new places give me great pleasure.
A long distance voyage is in the not too distant future, and I'm not just talking about Mexico. Making it to Malta is one of my goals.
I'm financially secure with no skeletons or baggage except the ones I use for traveling...
Amelie, Travelers and Magicians, Les Trois Seasons, American Beauty are some of my favorite films. My taste in music is fairly eclectic. I'm not a Huge opera fan, but I do love Turandot and some Monteverdi, Mozart, etc. Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tony Bennett, Ralph Towner, Andalusian music from Spain, various modern jazz artists, the Beatles are some of the things on my Ipad. It also contains a few lectures from UC Berkeley. Some of my favorite ways to find new reads: cruising the summer reading lists of various univesities, browsing the Cal text book shelves, shopping at UC Press bookstore.
