My self-summary
Born and raised in NJ. Schooled and worked in NYC. 35+ years in Chicago and now, Los Angeles. 35 years in publishing in NYC and Chicago.

Have a daughter and son -- 17-year old twins -- who live with their mom, sometimes me. They are off to college in September, different schools but both in Chicago.

Like hiking, reading, working out, dining out, movies/plays/comedy, museums, etc. Love to laugh. No golf, TV or social media. Like photography, but don't do it as much as I'd like. Honest, caring, generous, curious, smart, funny, sensual, blah, blah, blah ... Somewhat biased here, but do try for these qualities and achieve one or two every once in a while, sometimes.

In good shape (too many mindless gym hours) and fortunate to appear somewhat younger than my age. Not attached to any religion or spiritual practice, but meditate sporadically and believe there is something more. Among my simple pleasures are DQ's chocolate-dipped ice cream cones and the NYT crossword on Sunday mornings with a cup of coffee. Topping the list of my more elaborate pleasures is ... hmm, better save this for later.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to improve my slice of the world or, at least, not make it worse. Being a good dad. Staying curious and healthy with exercise and eating kale, yogurt and such. Working on two start-ups, one in radiology software and the other a website for screenwriters. Looking for a romantic partner. Finding I'm content to go it alone, but also know life could be richer with a partner.
I’m really good at
Being a dad (again, a little biased here). Being there for people. Also, to different extents, business, punctuation, crosswords, photography.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, maybe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Positive things. Books: Modern fiction these days. Movies: all-time favorite, South Pacific, maybe for the great songs like "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair" or "I'm as Corny as Kansas in August." I don't know. Also, Bridge on the River Kwai. Seem to be stuck in WWII. Like slice-of-life indie/foreign films (was a Truffaut aficionado in 60's-70's NYC during my pseudo-intellectual auteur phase). No horror or violence. Music: mostly female singers - Lisa Stanfield, Sia, Adele, Sheryl Crow, Amy Grant, Carole King, Adele, etc. - and the standards. Linda Ronstadt's "'Round Midnight" is a favorite album, but I have to be in a good place to listen to it. Food: eat just about everything, but tend towards healthy on a daily basis.
Six things I could never do without
Excepting the obvious ones like health, kids, family, friends, love, sex, weather, etc., it would be laughter, exercise, books, photography, my computer and NPR.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human/societal behavior, global and local and the mess we're making of it. My kids' futures, short and long term. (Also, what they will say about me to their therapists someday, hoping it'll be better than what I had to say about mine!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Keeping busy at home, reading, editing photos, just hanging out, doing something with the kids or out with a friend(s).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's got to be in one those occupied answers I gave.
You should message me if
you can relate to the above.
