I'm an Ivy-educated, self-employed, down-to-earth hyphen-using fellow with sharp mind, warm heart, firm body, and clear conscience. I'm a drop-out from the corporate drone world, an entrepreneur at heart, and have many different interests outside work. I play classical and ragtime piano, and am a pretty good swing and latin dancer. I have a house full of books, but can always find room for one or two more. I hike and I run, but am not a fitness fanatic, and confess that I like to eat donuts and milk late at night and sleep in. I love to travel, and I love to come home. I just hate being stuck in traffic. As far as values go: I believe taking responsibility and living consciously and purposefully are critical to leading a happy, successful life. And it's very important to have a sense of humor, because the world is after all a pretty crazy place, and if you can't laugh at it, you could spend a lot of time being depressed.
