If life is full of contradictions, then I am full of life. I am a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma…not complicated. If life is grand adventure, then I am an explorer seeking its farthest corners. No, I don’t mean just scaling the mountains, just circling the globe, just seeking the thrills I mean also the life of the mind, exploring knowledge, immersing in the arts, cultivating relationships.
I am a businessman actively involved in running several companies that I own. But I also have the soul of an artist (though perhaps not the skills, even though I dabbled in oil painting, literary writing, and photography, with questionable successes). I like the creative process…whether it’s as a failed artist or as a successful NASA engineer (my first job after college).
If the above sounds dry, the total me is more than that. I can be romantic with the right person, I believe in love (not always at first sight in my life, the most enduring love has been the one that grows with time). I enjoy having deep and lively conversations with my mate, as well as an occasional pensive silence. And above all for me, it’s about giving and taking love and pleasure with my lover.
To round it off, I also enjoy art galleries, art museums, theater, movies, classical music, jazz, and most pop music. My taste in literature has been changing from the classics to now mostly non-fiction. I enjoy reading about economics, politics, history, biography. I try to stay informed about current world events. I like people whom I find interesting, to have a stimulating conversation, to laugh, to entertain.
If you are adventurous, curious, open to new experiences, brave, and uninhibited, then we might together scale new heights of life’s adventure.
