I prefer unfiltered olive oils, unfiltered beers and unfiltered conversation.
I have great friends, lovers, and wonderful people I work with. But I keep my profile up because I am at a point in my life where I need to keep myself open to all amazing experiences that the world has to offer and who knows--is that you?
New favorite game: Cards Against Humanity
I am working on a few great projects. One of my projects involves increasing people's awareness about charities in a very innovative way.
I worked at Trader Joes for 13 years. I was a manager for 8 years. I am working at launching some very special projects. I am a talented writer but have not given myself the time to do it. I was a professional photographer at one time in a very niche field of sports photography, and I still love taking photos--mostly people and animals and performance.
I used to get accupuncture treatments at the Eastern School of Accupunture in Montclair NJ and am fascinated with the incredible discipline of accupuncture. I have always been drawn to the healing arts.
With the decision to end my relationship--I am ready to put my heart into those things that really make me feel whole, happy, and significant. It time to give back to the world in a big way--while giving to myself as well.
Update: in February 2015 I joined my brother in the family business. My father was a record producer and my brother has been a record producer for 30 years. I now manage our 3 record labels.
I am an inventor with MANY great ideas that deserve the breath of life, and now I am giving the time necesary to expedite my ideas.
I like to give ( and recieve) great massages. I have a great sense of touch and love to make people feel good.
I'm a very creative cook and had an award winning food service for many years. I miss the restaurant biz!
I'm a talented poker player--I used to play in a free poker league and came in 17th in the country one season ( out of 90,000 players).
I'm a great kisser and lover!
I'm a great traveler and I rarely lose at scrabble or words with friends!
I must have morbid taste in television as I love Dexter, Two and a Half Men, Desperate Housewives, Criminal Minds and anything legal or justice oriented. Top Chef is my favorite of the cooking shows
Favorite movie is The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Alladin (animated with Robin Williams ) Great Escape, Godfather, Good Fellas, Analyze This, Austin Powers movies, 50 First Dates. I actually love a good "chick flick". My favorite oldie book is Prince of Tides, Life and Times of Muhammad Ali by Thomas Hauser, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat, and most recently as I have learned a lot about adult ADD I have been fascinated by all books having to do with brain chemistry
I love sushi, Thai food, Indian food, most seafood. I haven't eaten beef or pork in 35 years. I love duck! I make a bad ass chocolate chip bread pudding!
I am an avid festival goer and always will be!
I am a beer snob and love great Belgians, microbrews, and quality beers.
This section could get very long since my brain almost never stops--a blessing and a curse!
That is just where I am at at this point.
Caring for my aging mother and figuring out my new career have to be my priority.
I said casual sex was ok in my preferences--don't be turned off by that. I am a safe, realistic, faithful partner who deprived himself of intimacy for much too long by being faithful despite not being fulfilled. I am a generous, robust lover and I realize that I really need to share my sexuality with partners for whom intimacy is equally important-but I am not someone who is dishonest or unfaithful to whatever our arrangement is--I will not violate your expectations to fulfill mine. That's not necessary if you're clear and honest about expectations.
Contact me if you enjoy thought provoking or just plain provocative conversation ( and I don't mean phone sex). You want to meet--I'm not a pen pal kind of guy. You are honest and appreciate the same. You want fun and goodness in your life. You enjoy intimacy, passion, sex, pleasure, touch, mental stimulation.
You are not possessive or controlling.
