i grew up on Long Island, then spent seven years in New England going to school, only to return back to Manhattan for good. I've played the piano for almost 25 years, and majored in music in college, only to grow up and become a lawyer in real life. But I do stay strongly in touch with my creative side by going to the theatre, concerts, and the opera often, and by spending many an afternoon playing through scores with friends. I fancy myself a foodie, and love trying new restaurants, but also staying in and cooking with good friends and good wine. I love to travel, and though I've been to a wide variety of places, and it's completely cliched, I'd still rather be having a picnic on the banks of the Seine than almost anywhere on Earth. I'm looking for someone intelligent, funny, and cute, who knows what he is looking for and is ready to find it.
