My self-summary
I love these little sales pitches...I mean autobiographies! The following has been duly vetted by my female friends who will vouch for its (relative) accuracy and authenticity:

I'm a recovering attorney (does one ever truly recover?) turned real estate developer and now investor. I'm smart, educated, outgoing and I don't take myself too seriously. I'm interested in and know a little bit about a lot of things, which makes me a good conversationalist, fun at parties, and good at Trivial Pursuit. I've been shaving my head for over 15 years and at this point I have no other hair-styling options. I'm compassionate and a good listener. I'm moderately athletic, stay fit at the gym, doing yoga or running on the boardwalk, but I'm certainly not obsessive about it - frankly, I do it mostly so I can indulge in good food and wine (within reason) without turning into Jabba the Hutt. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of 80's music, although I admit I'm a little weak on the mid-80's hair bands (music really should have guitars and/or horns, preferably both). I am generally happy, upbeat, have a great smile, and have been called "cute" and even "charming".

I'm passionate about travel and photography, plus I love scuba diving, so I get to combine all three pursuing underwater photography. I've been pretty lucky with it, recognized in several international competitions, in print and on display (even the Smithsonian!). This also has the distinct advantage of taking me to lots of warm, tropical places :-) When I'm not on a dive trip, I'm out exploring as many other exotic and photogenic locations as I can get to. You're more likely to find me at some remote temple or some crazy festival (yes, I've been to Burning Man) rather than lounging at some "all-inclusive" resort, on a cruise (god forbid!) or just lying on a beach somewhere (besides, we have nice beaches here). Although there's certainly nothing wrong with an adult beverage overlooking the ocean at sunset!

I'm looking to date with an eye towards a committed relationship. I have a ridiculously amazing life and I'm looking to create something equally amazing with the right woman, someone to share and explore the world with. Someone who's smart, educated, warm, and fun with a sense of adventure and play (like me). Brains and sass are definite pluses - cute would be nice too. Someone who's up for everything from an art opening or a back yard barbecue with friends to a weekend in Napa or an African safari. Or maybe even just making dinners in and snuggling on the sofa in sweats binge watching Netflix.

But enough about me - if any of this sounds at all intriguing, please send me a note and let's chat. Maybe meet somewhere casual and fun, hang out for a bit and see if there's chemistry - which after all is really what it's all about. Hey, it's just a cup of coffee (or better yet, a glass of wine) - no matter what, I can guarantee good conversation!

UPDATE (12/14):
OK, I have to admit I've done pretty much nothing on this site for the last year, so I apologize to those I haven't gotten back to. But I had a hell of a time traveling to some amazing places and taking some great pictures, both below and above the water. Let's start dating and go somewhere really cool in 2015!

Packing
On a typical Friday night I am
Passed out in some Asian back-alley wondering who stole my kidney.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I draw happy faces on the steamed-up shower door in the morning.

Oh yeah, I fudged my age to show up in your age X-50 search results. I'm actually (*gasp*) 53. But does it really matter at this point? Besides, that's the same age as George Clooney, a year older than Tom Cruise, and only 2 years older than Brad Pitt. So I got that going for me (right?).
You should message me if
My profile at least made you chuckle.
