Warm, funny, Jewish New Yorker (DJM, 53, 5'8", 190 lbs) I am probably a mass of contradictions, intellectual and down-to-earth, intense and serious and soft, funny and warm, critical and very supportive, watch foreign films and action movies, the NFL/NBA and read the New Yorker and New York Review of Books. I'm in a career transition from mostly working in developing countries (esp. India) helping small social change projects to trying to do much of the same work here in the US. I'm passionate about: progressive politics and social change; my two 4 yo twin girls and lively conversation with good friends, good food and drink. In good physical shape, I love to bike, swim, run and especially salt water sports and XC skiing. My favorite thing to do is go to the beach, anything to do with saltwater (sailing, diving, bodysurfing, swimming) looking for shells in tidal pools, reading trashy novels and sharing good ones.
