I am from New York City and I am a native, not a transplant. I attended Woodstock and was indeed half a day stoned when I got there, but that was long ago. I have traveled to Europe, South America, China, but not recently. I have also co-owned an art gallery in the East Village in the '80s and from there in a quantum leap I somehow landed in corporate america, a decision that I have questioned greatly in the past 10 yrs. I love jazz, classical, classic rock, blues. In short, eclectic tastes in music and art. Progressive liberal politics, but don't like to argue about it -- much. Sense of humor, makes an appearance with regularity. Read a lot. Talking about writing a very erotic paranormal urban fantasy with my old college buddy Lynn. Can be short on patience when herded. Oh, yeah, I moved across the Hudson River 3 years ago (New Jersey) to save money, but still regard myself as a New Yorker. That's it.
