Born in New York, trained as an economist, strictly Fortune 500 background, I'm a marketing consultant to major corporations. Formed my own company 25 years ago this year. Have also been a radio talk show host and producer. In my spare time, I'm working on several books (two novels and one non-fiction). Looking for a friendly and potentially long-term relationship (NOT necessarily marriage) with an educated woman who wants to have fun, has a wide range of interests and a sense of adventure/humor. I am extremely well-read and travel often. My reading interests are: business, history, politics, science/medicine. My children are grown and live away (one is a computer graphic artist and the other is an attorney). Are you interested in meeting a genuinely nice and very interesting guy who is well-versed on many topics AND NOT DEAD YET? Please include photo or I will not respond.The second photo was taken while I was researching my new novel which takes place along the Mexican Border. I schvitzed in a bulletproof vest under my shirt riding the border for many hours with two truly great, brave, armed-to-the-teeth U.S. Border Patrol agents. The photo of me, snapped by one of the agents, is on the California side of the border and that little sand berm behind the van is all that separates the good ole USA from the bad guys. The mountain in the background on the Mexican side is the famous "Signal Mountain" which is a rat's nest of outposts manned by drug smugglers watching us watching them. When we meet, ask me about my trek through the Mexican desert looking for the remains of the location of Pavarotti's last Latin American concert (the basis for a scene in my book). The things Hemingway and I would do for art!
