People tell me I look better than my pic. That's because I used an imaging software that predicts how someone will look in 5 years. That way, no one can say I'm using an old photo. To me, the glass isn't completely empty. I'm a smart, sexy, gifted, funny and handsome 59 year old. I'm a talented pianist, composer and businessman. My father and his family were concentration camp survivors and that has had a profound effect on me. I was trained as a classical pianist but now embrace many styles. I love Bach, Ray Charles, Randy Newman and Sinatra I also enjoy the ocean, long walks, cafes, old stuff, gardening, and theater. I am interested in politics, current events, history, nature, technology, and like to play Baseball, Scrabble and Ping Pong. I've performed Mozart Piano Concerti, been a choir director in a black church (and a sinogogue), toured Australia with a famous music group, written music for controversial Off-Broadway plays, and started a ground breaking multimedia company. If you're smart, loyal, attractive, and have a good sense of humor please contact me. I'm nice, considerate, sensitive, funny, and intelligent. You can have any bad habit but if you don't know the difference between to and too fuhgeddaboudit. And now for the serious part. My favorite JDate cliches: "I live life to its fullest I have a zest for life' I am as comfortable in an evening gown as I am in jeans (marry me!) Chemistry is key' mutual respect is key Communication is key I turn a lemon into lemonade Life is short (if life is so short, why did God invent Bingo?) Someone who will be my best friend and lover I look much younger than I am to me, the glass is half full Live Laugh Love and of course the ubiquitous I like long walks on the beach."
