In His Own Words

About him

I am at a point in my life where i have time to develop a relationship, indeed it is a very important thing to me. I have accomplished a great deal of good things in my life, been a teacher, a writer, performer, an arts advocate, a legislative counsel, media artist, television personality and good amateur sportsmen. And still as U2 has said "I still haven't found what I am looking for," which is a serious and faithful lover and friend. I promise to be the best companion I can be and work to make you maximize your talents, follow your dreams and be encouraging. I have a lot to offer, a lot left to live.

My friends know I am lively and funny. I poke fun at myself, am sincere (perhaps too much so) I can cook up a storm of French, Italian, and California cuisine and more. I am very well educated, love a lot of esoteric stuff like science and physics, and have a giving spirit. I read three to four novels per month, usually one or two science books. I have had ten of my plays performed, am really a confirmed Californian, born on New York, been in every state but one. I love games, dinner out, dinner in, laying on the floor in front of the fire with a Cakebread Chard, Italian and French cheese. I am very tired of politics and have left my debating tendencies at the door. There isn't much i can do to change my country's insane politics. I love travel. Never been to Italy and would love to go. I am fully Italian/American. Most of all I am easy to get along with, and i think everyone who knows would agree on that.

I have a hard time with the body shape question because right now i am 20 pounds overweight although still athletic. I used to be a fairly elite athlete and am trying to get back there.

About his ideal match

Wow, she would be personable, compassionate, caring, intelligent, spiritual, artistic, stable, not going through some massive life change, knows who she is, has a dream and wants to follow it. She might love food and cook, read a lot, play sports, most of all she must love the arts. I would prefer her to be liberal to moderate politically.

Other than that i have no formula, i never know who is going to strum my strings, it surprises even me. I guess I value stability, someone who is tolerant of others, is considerate.

I do not abide by smoking. That's about it. She can drink but not to excess. I think that's important, not to do anything excessively. I have known too many women who are so interesting but unstable and that combined with my willingness to get along with anyone has put me in tough spots. I also need to have a tolerant companion vis-a-vis religion. She can be any type and while I am still Catholic, I also practice Buddhism but am tolerant of any spiritual beliefs. She most definitely must be tolerant, not racist or gay-hating. Respect all living beings.

A deal breaker would be an unfaithful person. I am fully capable of being a one woman guy, although early in a relationship of course i would expect her to be in touch with other men.
