My self-summary
I like to run, travel, drink whisky and tell stories.

This profile makes it look like I play a lot of golf and wear dinner jackets to dinner. Neither of these things are true.

I come from five generations of die hard Cub fans and have recently been unburdened of generations of existential angst. So I have some newly acquired emotional bandwidth.

I'm the oldest of four boys and grew up with the midwest as the family epicenter. My brothers are all different and fantastic and we're close.

I've lived in NYC for 13 of the past 15 years (with brief interludes in Mumbai and Argentina) and have always said things like "I love it here, but will probably move back or away at some point." I've decided to stop saying that. New York is the best, and I love living here.

Also, I come in both a bearded and non bearded version, depending on mood and which clients I have to visit.

I'd like to meet someone I click with. Lists don't make much sense. The person you end up with always ends up being someone who tests you in ways you didn't know you needed to be tested. Active, smart and funny would be a good start though.

When I retire my pet project is going to be to take on "big scaffold" in NYC.
What I’m doing with my life
I've mainly spent the last couple years mastering the mysterious work-life balance. It dawned on me that there was a benefit to being 40 and without kids. So I got a job that allowed me to work from anywhere and have been taking advantage of that. But, all good things . . . I spent my career in publishing, or what was left of it. And I've recently sold out and work for a tech company. I'm learning all sorts of new made up words and have a big boy job again.
I’m really good at
Looking like I know what I'm talking about.
Gesticulating.
Games that require dexterity but not speed or jumping.
Telling stories (I have a medal to prove this . . and a good story)
The first things people usually notice about me
Deep voice, large head, lots of hand movement.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Back to the Future, cheap dumplings, good booze, breakfast pizza, olives, NY Mag approval matrix, Led Zeppelin, Gun N' Roses, The Lumineers, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings are all awesome things.
Six things I could never do without
Six? That's weird, my Taj Majal snow globe, the 747, my friends, dictionary.com's word of the day, and my brothers to keep me on my toes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why prepositions are supposedly the wrong thing to end a sentence with. And, when to use the word whom. Help me.

Also, why so many women here give explicit instructions on how to not write a profile like an idiot. Why all the help ladies? Let me wallow in my own ineptitude why dontcha?
On a typical Friday night I am
Scheming.
You should message me if
You are the most interesting (wo)man alive.

You are slightly off kilter.

I crave smart, dynamic women who know what they want, but are also willing to stroke my ego every once in a long while. You are excited and willing to talk about relationships (past and present) and know what you want.I've been in both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships and there are things I like about both. I think choosing how to go about it together is what makes either worthwhile.

Casual sex is checked because it's fun. But more would be better. Also, some of my best relationships have started casually. We're all adults here.
