My self-summary
I am a single guy looking for someone to share life and love with. My son isn't living with me half the time for the first time in quite a while, and I am trying out some new things. I went to MIT somewhere back there, and write media software for a living. I lived in La Honda and then up on Skyline for almost twenty years until recently selling my house and renting a place here in Belmont. I miss having a partner and am just now fully ready to entertain that possibility when meeting new women. I swim and do other exercise every day as a habit, but am not overly fanatical about it.
What I’m doing with my life
Reconnecting with it, and being open to new connections and opportunities of all kinds on an ongoing basis. Enjoying the ride and participating in it.
I’m really good at
Honesty, intimacy, conversation, observation, storytelling, sharing and caring, science and technology, making plans and seeing them through, being flexible (not mutually exclusive), living genuinely.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am happy, open, and pretty smart. After my drop-dead good looks. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love all kinds of food and cooking; uni (sea urchin) is the only thing on my don't-care-for list. Goodfellas would be a desert island movie, but have seen, and like, lots of different things. Using Hulu lately for video, and like Modern Family, Fringe, Arrested Development, Dexter, Weeds, all new to me. Recovering Dead Head, like all kinds of music, the usual pop stations in the car (used to stay on NPR most of the time, now surf a bit more). Opera at the War Memorial, other live performances, electronica, all really can be wonderful, in the right frame and company. Used to read books all the time, but lately mostly read only at bedtime, so I stick with shorter things like Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, and popcult fluff on the elliptical. TechCrunch, Gawker, and RealMoney daily. Passing earcandy: One EskimO 'Kandi', 'It's Amazing'; Scars on 45, 'Give Me Something.'

Okay, a couple of apropos celeb moments: had lunch with Lucas and Speilberg in the Skywalker Ranch dining room (no, I wasn't the only other one at the table), and 'partied' with Jerry Garcia onstage at Shoreline (heck, I was right next to him, but he didn't offer me any of *his* balloon ;).
Six things I could never do without
Loving and being loved, my positive outlook, healthy food, Pacific Athletic Club, phone/Internet, my health, and the next breath, really not a lot beyond that, as far as *never*. It's all relative. ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The connections and serendipity I see in my life everyday, and how amazing it all is. The stories we tell ourselves and each other, reminiscence and memory, and how software might augment those.
On a typical Friday night I am
...making dinner, maybe for friend(s), or out for a bit with friend(s), surfing the Web, watching something on Hulu or listening to music, maybe writing some. An adventurous homebody who is open to suggestion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anything at all, in person. I am an open book, if you care to read.
You should message me if
You are available and open to meeting new people for the experience, if nothing else. It's all preamble until you're within pheromone distance; nothing ventured, nothing gained, that's what I say.
The two of us
