Interests, values, and perceptions developed on the East coast, arrived in northern Nevada in 2007 after 22 years in Connecticut for business reasons. Grew up and went to school in upstate NY and 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).
