I have a happy nature and humor is my vice. Artistic sensibility is an important part of my life and I enjoy responsiveness to the arts in a partner. I am stable and reliable and seek the same. I enjoy designing things, whether its a new recipe, my living room, or a creative solution to a problem and I like group participation in the enterprise.. A life-long New Yorker, I enjoy small cozy cafes for reading the paper, people watching, conversation, gathering friends, or cooking for them at home walking everywhere, a great class at the gym movies, arts fairs and forums, hanging out. I'd like to share interests and explorations with a tall, funny, gentle natured, warm hearted man who is emotionally open, honest and expressive, has commitment to something outside of himself, and is in his own way traditional.
