My self-summary
I live in DC and have been here since 1988. I love going out in the city...trying new restaurants, attending art receptions and exhibitions, going to plays, films, concerts, lectures, parks and gardens and just wandering throughout different neighborhoods.

While at home I like to read novels and biographies, and to read art, fashion and design magazines, and to listen to a variety of music from several countries, and to watch independent and foreign films, and to cook good food.

My career is in art-consulting and has been for the past twenty-six years. I have a degree in studio art and studied printmaking and drawing, which I would like to get back to creating one day.

I'm looking for someone handsome, intelligent, fun, creative, tall and in shape who enjoys life.

I am 51years old....if you are young enough to be my son, I have absolutely no interest in communicating with you.
