My self-summary
Recently I've spent too much time on work and career, and not near enough on personal connections. I'm just wrapping up a tough commute schedule between San Francisco and New York City. Both great cities, and I kind of feel like a local in both places. But, San Francisco is home, and I need to take the time to enjoy the random Giants day game. Or maybe dropping into a gallery opening on a weeknight. Or a few mental health days when its dumping snow in Tahoe, and I just have to be there. And especially taking advantage of all the places you can get to via nonstop flight out of SFO.
I'm currently spending only a few days each month in NYC working as part of a new ER protocol. Educated both locally and back east.
I'm hoping there are others out there that enjoy variety. muddy trail runs, and then a nice meal. or a Zombie matinee, then the symphony. You get the idea. I've spent too much time in the middle, so maybe its time to see some of the edges that life has to offer. Nothing crazy. Just different.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping people heal.
rooting on the Giants and 49ers. Trying not to become a Yankees fan.
buying locally, Sampling food and drink by neighborhood.
people watching.
spoiling my nieces.
avoiding tourist traps.
trying not to get felt up on MUNI. Well, not too much.
Traveling anywhere a plane can go.
Realizing that work isn't life, and nobody should live to work.
Training to improve my half marathon time.
I’m really good at
Helping others feel at ease. I think you get to know more about people when they feel more comfortable and welcomed.
And I think I tell a really good story. Not just one. I know lots of em actually.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I'm usually kinda witty, so I try to emphasize my humor. I'm sure there is a psychiatrist reading this that has a diagnosis already!? Really, it may help! It really does makes me very happy when those around me are happy and laughing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ok, guilty pleasure admit ion here. I love my Kindle Reader. Ok, I've said it, and I feel better. Really, anything thoughtful, creative, provocative, and with a bit of historical perspective. I like fiction, historical works, and I'm enjoying biographies lately. But, I'm not too hot on autobiographies. They seem too self serving and preachy for me. I go through stages: Classics like Hemingway because it reminds me how much can be done in one lifetime. Historical fictions like Alan Furst, a espionage writer who makes Europe in the 30s and 40s seem amazing. Cormac McCarthy because nobody can make violence so casually brutal. Bret Easton Ellis, because sometimes debauchery just works.

Musically I'm all over the map. I love the classic rock stuff, the 90 alt scene, and more current stuff like the killers, neon trees, foo fighters etc..I never miss Cris Cornell if he's nearby. But I also have a serious soft spot for great, well performed live Jazz. I think its the historical significance that draws me in. I'm looking forward to this years Montreal and Monterrey Jazz Festivals. I have no problem using frequent flyer miles on an impromptu concert trip!

Not really any specific type of film fan. I usually get a few days at the Sundance Film Festival. I've been many times, and I usually really enjoy the whole scene. Some of the art films are a bit heavy though. I'm really OK with the mega blockbusters. The indie films are full of the realities of life, but special effects, mega stars, and raunchy humor can work for me too. How shallow does that make me?!
The six things I could never do without
interesting, witty, and intelligent conversation.
Random acts of kindness and compassion by others.
Salty, heavy, ocean air.
Public park spaces for running.
Newspapers: I'm the guy who still buys them. Daily. At a new stand or parer box. Crazy right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my next cup of coffee is coming from! Seriously! You need to stay caffeinated. I'm racking up the frequent flyer miles, so I'm spending an unusually high amount of time thinking of the places I want to travel. Suggestions always welcomed, and invitations encouraged.
On a typical Friday night I am
Anything engaging is good for me. Music is huge. The type isn't near as important as the energy and quality. I'm not a groupie to anybody, but I do travel for a good show.
If the Giants are in town, I could be there on a Friday.
Movies in the Park.
Sharing a 4 hour meal with family and friends, too many bottles of wine, and a huge bill, because the stories and conversation is that good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really wish I spoke French. I think it would make me the kind of man that I'd want to play me in the movie that I hope is made about me one day. Trying to learn., but I revert to Spanish!
Oh, and I just came around on cilantro. I'm a little late to that party. I still can't stomach kale.
You should message me if
If you can be a fun, energetic, Intellectually stimulating,exciting date, companion, or partner.
If you think you can teach me something, without needing to fix me. Like you, I don't feel broken. But I can grow and evolve.
If you can help me solve the last few spaces in the NYT Crossword.
If you know of some secret city spaces that nobody else know about. Like real city rooftop bars! Oh, or a hidden parking spot that only you know how to find.
If you respect others hard work and accomplishments, but still feel empathy for the homeless.
If your past gives you a sense of who you are, and points you towards where you want to go.
Please and thank you are a part of your vocabulary.
You don't consult daily with a psychic, a parole officer, or my mother.
