I've never been one to categorize myself, but I'll give it a try - I'm a dad, a son, a brother, an uncle, a professional, an aspiring artist, a friend, a philosopher, an educator, a music lover (I have a very eclectic taste, if I do say so myself), a child at heart, a good dancer (for a white, jewish boy) and an overall mensch (so I've been told :-) I'd love to add "a devoted companion" to the above list, hence membership on this site! I have a passion for food and wine and love to cook (I enjoy cooking with someone even more!) I also enjoy dining out, going to theater, working out at the gym, skiing, traveling, going to the beach, relaxing at home, enjoying time with my son, reading, playing piano, writing, playing poker and board games, going to museums, creating my own artwork and taking weekend excursions. I just started training for a half marathon that will be taking place In Napa this summer! Want to come cheer me on?
