My self-summary
I am a 42 year old professional male seeking a unique and spectacular woman. Values and integrity are extremely important to me. My reputation for being fair, honest and compassionate defines who I am. My passions are deep rooted in an intellectual curiosity that can never be quenched.

Others have described me as “one of the few nice guys left” and “a true gentleman” but I maintain that I just treat others the way I expect to be treated. I am unique and I know who/what I am.

My interests are pretty diverse from exploring NYC architecture to swimming, billiards, exploring antique shops, and swing dancing (which I haven't done in way too long).

I am Honest, Passionate, and Intelligent.

My MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) results are a strong ENTJ. As an ENTJ, I tend to look forward into the future and define what the impact of today's decisions will be several years from now. I also prefer concepts to details although I have spent enough of my career getting my hands dirty with the details that I can handle whatever is thrown at me.

FYI- I disagree with OK Cupid's personality assessment in a number of areas. Their algorithm skews when you answer a few key questions. The key to understanding any model (mathematical, statistical, etc) is to realize that models are imperfect.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently changed careers. After successfully turning around my troubled Manhattan Condo Association as President and Treasurer, I have decided to pursue Manhattan Residential Real Estate Sales and have left the financial services world. I had an interesting career creating and managing the learning and development infrastructure at multiple firms, but the environment has changed and the culture that previously allowed me to implement creative and innovative solutions is largely gone.

I am still working on a book with my father based on our combined experiences (well mostly his). Maybe one day we will have a marketable product.
I’m really good at
I consider myself well rounded. If I had to put a label on it- I am really good at digesting information and entertaining a diverse audience on topics that may interest them. Perhaps I should re-phase that, I am really good at being a geek. I am quite proud of that too.

I am also really good at being the reluctant leader.
The first things people usually notice about me
Intellect, kindness, and curious. Physically, I have been told I have a nice butt and nice teeth. I find the teeth comment amusing because I was told as a child I needed braces, which my mom refused to allow- since she had braces done incorrectly. I also get a lot of compliments on my choice of frames- conservative yet a bit whimsical.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have a favorite book- but I do have a favorite author - Clive Cussler, he writes action-adventure stories. I also read a great deal of online periodicals on NYC real estate, finance, and general news. I love science and technology too.

Favorite movies...well if it has a strong plot, great acting, and settings, it doesn't really matter what genre it is. My interests are wide- from romances, dramas, independents, action, comedy, etc. Favorites include movies done by Oliver Stone, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, John Hughes, and Martin Scorsese.

Music tastes are mostly 60's-early 90's rock. My favorite artist is Billy Joel.
Six things I could never do without
Bah, forget Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs! I love my gadgets (and I loved them long before it was commonplace). I will leave it at that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Possibilities... sometimes you never know where life can take you. Ambition, creativity, intelligence, and planning only takes you so far.
On a typical Friday night I am
I can certainly answer this for the winter time, but not for the rest of the year. I really am not a cold weather person, so in the winter, I would rather be in my apartment staying comfortable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
While I was successfully able to predict the 2008 economic collapse (almost to the precise month) 2 years prior to the meltdown- I was still hit pretty hard by it all. While I have gotten my life back on track, it definitely changed me.
You should message me if
Simply put- I am seeking an equal partner. If you have ever seen Bill and Melinda Gates interact with each other- it's clear that it's an equal partnership between them.

I have a laundry list of traits that I seek- based on compatibility, not superficiality.

I am seeking a woman that is: romantic, intelligent, humorous, fun, sincere, honest, sensual, sweet, caring, has direction and/or ambition. We will have passionate chemistry, similar values, compatible personalities and an intellectual peer. We will complement each other in whatever we aspire to in our lives and can always count on the other to be there, no matter how difficult life gets. She will have a great sense of humor, style, grace, and values. Please be local to NYC.

If you voted for Trump, odds are high we won't have much in common.
The two of us
