I am a healthcare professional, with a doctoral degree. I like film, theater, bicycling, photography, music, spicy foods. I am a friendly, easygoing, self-assured intelligent man, with a sense of humor. My politics are left-of-center; my religious leanings are secular/ spiritual although I was raised in semi-Orthodox surroundings. I like good conversation, good humor, and good food. I am affectionate, with good communication skills, and a love of life.
