My self-summary
I'm a Bay Area native, born, raised and educated. Self employed with a great group of fun loving friends looking to widen the net and get some new blood in the mix and maybe some romance too! udig? Spare time? Professional musician (saxophone), vintage Porsche race car driver and mechanic, Boutique Winery CEO. Collector of classic vinyl (LPs). Serious chef, Connoisseur of everything I'm interested in: clothing, hats, food, wine, vintage cars, persian rugs, curves, etc.

I have traveled with a backpack and a saxophone for years at a time in Europe, the Middle East, Central and South America, including Brazil about which I often daydream...saudade...and recently Cuba!

I haven't owned a television since 1980. I'm a city boy, a nature boy, a high styling, back packing, automobile racing, culinarily inclined, philosophical, mish-mosh of wonder, luck and passion.

I like to have FUN. That's the common thread in my life. Couple that with a huge appetite for love and affection, the will to succeed and appropriate humility, and you got me.

I am calm, elegant, and yet fly
What I’m doing with my life
Succeeding, delving deeper. Looking forward and considering my next left turn.

Enjoying the good times.

The six things I could never do without
alphabet
water
humility
salt and pepper
passion
humor

six is no magic number
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to be next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Capable of doing anything.

come with something new, please!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like a hot afternoon bath.
