Hot, funny & smart - just like your elegant self! :-)
What I’m doing with my life
I am originally from Germany, have lived in NY for a few years, also spent a year in Barcelona.

I am a curious mind. Love to learn.

I am unconventional. I like to do things "my way", not necessarily "the system's way."

I admit, I derive a certain pleasure from then succeeding with doing it "my way." ;P

[See "Education" below. Actually, dropped out of high school when I was 18 to become a professional musician. Thankfully, that was a very conscious decision, I never had to regret it and achieved what I wanted to achieve. Yes..., you may have to put your preconceptions aside there for a moment. No..., that does not mean I have to be some uneducated "simple mind." Does my writing indicate that? Plus: little, old me speaks four languages. Pretty fluently, actually. ;) Ha, take that! Usually not the bragging type, btw.]

I was a professional jazz drummer for quite a few years.
Got to travel around the world quite a bit through that. Lucky.

Then life took a left turn and I did real estate investing in NY.
(Who would have thought a few years earlier? Certainly not me.)

Learned a lot, but in the end I wasn't passionate about it.

Now I found a way to combine my passion for music and business: I am producing and publishing music instructional videos with many of the greatest jazz musicians. Lots of fun, lots of work.
I’m really good at
being strong & stubborn, but I am also kind & generous.
cuddling.
kissing you longer than anybody else before me.
knowing what I want and what I don't want.
making you laugh. (If you get my type of humor. Full disclosure: not everybody does.)
smelling good.
your mom liking me. ;) [Alright, we might be past that stage. Or not?]
being articulate and spelling things correctly.
NEVER giving up, if the cause is worthy and I am fascinated.
really having your back, when I am on your team. You can count on me 200%.
seeing the positive, even in the midst of turmoil/chaos. There is ALWAYS a way!
being a hopeful romantic.
PS: massages. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, dark & handsome. ;P

And after that:

I have good manners.
I'm kind; and strong at the same time.
I have a dry sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MUSIC: anything with a strong atmosphere. (Love Joni Mitchell, Ivan Lins & Shirley Horn, for example.)

FOOD: most anything where people really cared to make it! (My favorite hobby? :)

BOOKS: recently read lots of productivity and biz books... Sounds too dry? Well, Rilke's 'letters to a young poet' are great, too, and I like Milan Kundera (time to take the dust of his work, and read one again, thanks for reminding me!).
The six things I could never do without
FOOD (*GOOD* Food!)
LAUGHTER (even when the sh*t hits the fan)
DIVERSITY
BEING KIND (but strong) - and doing the right thing
Oh, yeah, SEX (Make that GREAT sex)
And MORE...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Warum ist die Banane krumm? (Why ain't the banana straight? Hint: it rhymes in German. Nope, no sexual connotation; just a joke)

Am I spending my time/LIFE doing something meaningful and fulfilling? (I am content with my current answer.)

UPDATE: a woman on this site put the following into this section:
"... Does anyone ever really tell the truth here? I've read some pretty obvious lies. Ok fine, I'll take one for the team of humanity. I think about food and sex. Almost exclusively. Try and tell me you're any different."

Thanks for setting us all straight, lady!

I shall admit: those two are pretty present on yours truly's mind as well!
On a typical Friday night I am
Don't have typical Friday nights, you dig.

I may be partying.
I may be working.
I may be relaxing at home.
I may eat my butt off at a nice restaurant.
I may be sweating it out at the Russian-Turkish bath.
I may see some friends play music at a club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Quite a few years ago, I cheated on a very good friend with his girlfriend. Stoopid.

That said, my level of integrity is overall rather impeccable, I would humbly say. And sharing this piece of info does *not* represent what I stand for and how I live my life.
Trust, transparency and integrity are not just nice-sounding words to me.
You should message me if
you really read this - AND it spoke to you.

Yes, I can be a wordy bastard, but you know something about me now.

I am not into spending my time on rather meaningless/chemistry-less dates and back & forth. I am straightforward. I am not an easy catch. But one of the "good ones."

You are probably warm, funny, somewhat feminine (duh?).
You are open-minded and curious about other cultures.
There is something "good" about you.
You are soft and gentle. (I don't mean weak.)
You smell good.
You look good - but you are relatively low maintenance. (Ha again, take that, too!)
You probably do not own a tiny dog. (There, I said it - and hereby eliminated 70% of you? ;) [Then again, feel free to prove me wrong. No, really.]
You have your own thing going on already and we don't have to cling together all the time to be happy. A little independence = vely healthy fol lelationship!

One more superficial thing: I hate to say it, but fake b...s are kind of a turn off over here.
No offense or insult intended at all.
But, it's good to be clear, yes?
