My self-summary
I’m always looking for adventure and fun. I look for these and I find them and so much more. I’ve travelled the world, achieving lifetime platinum frequent flier status on American Airlines. I have friends all over the world and know the places where the locals go. I’ve been granted a US patent. I’ve done open water swimming events, I’ve been backstage at Carnegie hall, I’ve done pyrotechnics for rock shows, I’ve had special access at concerts, the NBA finals, NBA All Star Game, NHL finals, NHL All Star game, the Final Four, a World Series. I’ve run the scoreboard for the Dallas Stars; the shot clock, game clock, scoreboard and scorer’s book for the Dallas Mavericks (on one occasion all 4, one position per quarter). I’ve joined a ballroom dancing group where I foxtrot, meringue, and struggle to waltz. I have an ownership interest in a wine and cheese shop, sampling the best the world has to offer. I’m looking for that special some one who finds any or all of this exciting, some one to share the fun, to discover the wonderful things through life’s adventures, to laugh, to cuddle, to chat, some one to be romantic with, together.
What I’m doing with my life
Exercising, running and swimming – the Maui Channel, Alcatraz, the length of the Golden Gate Bridge. I ‘work’ my Saturday shift at the wine and cheese shop, excited to see the joy in folk’s eyes as they experience fine wine and cheese, maybe for the first time. I have a challenging new job I enjoy. I have re-invented myself, entering a new area of my industry while maintaining old contacts and making new ones.
I’m really good at
making people smile, bringing people together
The first things people usually notice about me
how tall I am
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
- I’m working on a reading list I found on the internet. I’m over half way through the list of 100. Some of the highlights: Ullyses, Great Gatsby, Lolita, Catch-22, Darkness at Noon, Grapes of Wrath, Under the Volcano, 1984, An American Tragedy, Tender is the Night, Animal Farm, The Golden Bowl, As I Lay Dying, All the King’s Men, Howard's End, Lord of the Flies, Deliverance, The Secret Agent, The Naked and the Dead, Portnoy’s Complaint, Pale Fire, On the Road, The Maltese Falcon, The Age of Innocence.
- I like older movies, the classics. I am very interested in the goings on at the Texas theater. I will be the projectionist at the Oak Cliff Film Festival
- As far as shows go, I want to see them all. I have been lucky to see most of the touring acts, often in the first few rows, sometimes backstage, and on occasion as part of the pyrotechnics crew.
- I have discovered my place in the kitchen, on the stovetop, in the oven, on the grill. Baking comes naturally to me having worked at our family bakery as a teenager. I’m known as ‘the cookie guy’ in some circles and revel in the notoriety. My favorites are peanut butter chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, lemon cookies. I make an awesome sweet potato pie. I enjoy entertaining family and friends. At Thanksgiving, I grill a turkey. It comes out incredibly moist and cookbook picture perfect.
The six things I could never do without
- good health
- good times
- family and friends
- exercise
- laughter
- adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how things work and why they don’t work the way they should, how to make the world a better place.
On a typical Friday night I am
at a Mavericks or Stars game, at the cheese shop, swimming, going to a concert or other live event, entertaining friends, reading a book, sipping a glass of wine.
