I am an accomplished professional with close to a forty year career spanning various technical adventures. I am financially secure, well educated, serious at times, not so serious at other times, and have a quick wit with a keen sense of humor. I believe in honesty and integrity and expect the same from my partner. I am not addicted to watching sports on TV, but will follow the local teams when they are doing well. I have been to Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots games in the last year. I like to cook, bake, grill and BBQ. Points to you if you appreciate the difference between grilling and BBQing. Although I enjoy an elegant restaurant, I also like hole-in-the-wall, out of the way places. You will sometimes find me wandering around a kitchen store or Whole Foods just as much as a Home Depot or Lowes. I wouldn't say that I am a gadget guy, but I have a wide selection of tools to fix most anything (and I usually can) as well as cooking utensils to fix a homemade dinner from soup to dessert. I am not afraid to try a new recipe or dish. I have traveled to various places around the world, but still have a number of spots that I would like to explore with someone special. I enjoy seeing a first run movie, especially at the newer comfy theaters, but it doesn't take much to convince me to hang out at home and watch a classic movie on TV. I am not into the sci-fi and gratuitous action flicks I like good mysteries, drama, history, or even chick flicks. I am not interested in serial dating, but I think I can tell after a date or two whether there is a connection. I am from NJ and relate to those who grew up there, but it isn't a requirement.
