I have two wonderful little girls who are 9 and 5. They are my life, and I love being a dad. They are my absolute priority. I have been separated for about a year-and-a-hafl now and divorce proceedings are nearly complete (waiting on ex to file). Relocation from the DC area is highly unlikely depending on the terms of the divorce. I have lived all over the country, and in Japan for three years. I work for the Navy, and retired from the Reserves after over 22 years of service in January 2013. I am trying my hand at Masters Swimming
I come from a very large, Jewish family and Judaism is very important to me. I grew up in the Chicago area and have lots of friends and family there still. My parents are in Indianapolis, and I go there often too.
I love to travel, and although I have visited well over twenty countries (favorites include France--especially around Villefranche, Nice, and Cannes, Israel, Singapore, and Hong Kong), I really want to explore the U.S (Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, other big open places out West) and Canada.
I enjoy going to the opera, theater, and concerts. I would love to play more golf than I actually do. I am a huge fan of BBC America shows (Doctor Who, Orphan Black). I play a pretty mean game of Scrabble. I have rediscovered my ability to cook. I make a mean curry and yummy brownies among other things.
I am a Chicago sports junkie and I need my Blackhawks, Bears, and White Sox. Some other teams will be tolerated :-)
You should be willing to be inspected by my cat (or rather my girls' cat) Muffy. Her name was not my idea, but she is very protective of me...
