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.
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.
