Interests, values, and perceptions developed on the East coast, arrived in northern Nevada in 2007 after 22 years in Connecticut to be president of a privately held company. Grew up and went to school in upstate NY; lived in Toronto, CA, CT and now NV. I have been described as intelligent, stable, articulate, sophisticated, grounded and worldly. I am honest, straightforward, respectful of others, polite, live my life with integrity, always humble and do not play games when it comes to romance. I am focused, self confident, romantic, sensitive, kind and caring. Clean cut, neat. Love music--it is an important part of my life and career. I am passionate about 20th Century design, architecture and decorative arts. I stay balanced through a mix of long distance road cycling, hiking, working out/resistance training, foreign/older/art films, museum exhibitions, antique shows, specialized auctions, love to cook, quality restaurants, fun weekends of regional adventure/travel and enjoying each other, high-quality food, etc. Read mostly non-fiction, journals and specialized category periodicals. Traveled extensively internationally (especially Europe and Asia), and visited Geneva, Nyon, Munich, Ghent/Antwerp, Oslo, Bergen, Hong Kong, Guandong, Singapore, Melbourne and Bangkok in the last 12 months.
