My self-summary
I'm a Eulipion. What is a Eulipion? If you search on YouTube for "Theme for the Eulipions" you will find a recording by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Eulipions are "the artists, musicians, journey agents, and travelers...". If you are a Eulipion too, read on.

I'm a complicated mixture of elements. Most importantly I'm a musician. I play multiple instruments and compose. I love performing and am always looking for new opportunities to do so. I'm a member of my town's Cultural Council. I have my own group and also play in a 16 piece big band. I'm a member of Sustainable Arlington and have done considerable work with other environmental groups helping them create and manage their websites. I serve as a board member of a nonprofit organization that does capacity building. I'm a self-employed consultant who works with lots of nonprofit organizations as well as with small to medium sized businesses.

When I'm not working I enjoy biking, gardening and attending all sorts of cultural events. I enjoy cooking especially when I can share a meal with someone special.

I'm looking for a woman who is comfortable with both my musical and professional lives. I'm intellectual and need to be with someone who shares a passion for learning and a voracious appetite for things cultural. I like women who are creative and can share their artistic perspective with me. I'm looking for a real partnership. Being creative together would make me very happy. Intimacy can take many forms and I'd love to play music together or improvise behind your poetry.

I don't want to sound like I'm not interested in people who aren't artists, but I definitely need to be with someone who gets the artist and enjoys being around someone who spends time practicing, etc.

I'm very supportive and hope to find someone who is also supportive. I'm looking for a partner...I like women who know who they are and have their own lives.
What I’m doing with my life
Lots of music. I perform regularly and am always seeking new venues. I'm also active in my community. I recently retired after 8 years from the board of directors of a nonprofit that does capacity building and I'm a member of Sustainable Arlington, the town's Cultural Council, and I am the founder of a new music production company that just completed its second concert. I'm an activist and advocate for issues that I believe in. I'm a self-employed consultant and entrepreneur.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I'm a jazz musician. I compose as well as perform. I play multiple instruments: bass, guitar, keyboards, ancient oboes, percussion instruments from around the world, and scat sing...I draw from all kinds of music including modern classical, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, West African, amonst others.

I love modern art and architecture, beat poetry. I enjoy all kinds of art but prefer modern to classical. I've been a member at the MFA for years.

Amongst my favorite poets are: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ted Joans, Jayne Cortez, and Robert Pinsky.

I enjoy lots of movie genres. I'm not a big fan of action movies or commercial block busters but have enjoyed them on occasion. My favorite movies include: "Aguirre: The Wrath of God", Bunuel's "That Obscure Object of Desire", "Last Stop Wonderland". A couple of other movies that always resonated with me are Brazil and King of Hearts. Both should be shown as part of the orientation programs for most if not all organizations :-). I almost forgot "In Modern Times" Chaplin's masterpiece!

I love to read and listen to lots of books on CD. My favorite authors are Umberto Eco and Ian Pears for their historical novels and I also enjoy Robert B. Parker and other mystery writers for light reading. One of my recent reads was Ian Pears "Stone's Fall". I also read non-fiction.
Six things I could never do without
I couldn't live without music or my instruments. Good relationships are right up there as well. Other things I couldn't do without are air to breath, food to eat, and a roof over my head |-).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always thinking about the big picture. I think about politics, philosophy, the environment and sustainability, the role of culture in our lives, how we derive meaning in society and how that reflects on our ability to change society and lots more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking a meal at home and playing my instruments. I might have a gig or might go out to hear some music. If I'm in a relationship I might be going out to eat and to a movie, concert. I'd love to find someone who loves to dance to good Salsa. I took lessons some years ago and would love to practice with someone who can't help dancing when she hears latin music.
You should message me if
I'm open to meeting women who find me interesting and want to see if there is any chemistry. I'm looking for someone who can commit to a relationship but I know that developing a deep friendship takes time and is at the core of any good love relationship.
The two of us
