Forty something man originally from NJ and have lived in several metro areas (NYC, Chicago, Philadelphia and Miami). Currently live in Western NY. I own a 1920 Craftsman style home which my partner and I take great pride in. We have lovingly worked to restore original gumwood moldings, hardwood floors, etc, as well as to respectfully modernize kitchen, bathrooms and the like. I love hosting friends and family; making them feel comfortable and welcome. In my off time I enjoy cooking and eating, drinking good wine, gardening, biking, wellness, pottery and knitting. I greatly enjoy travel and absorbing local culture and flavor. I've seen a lot of North America and Europe and look forward to other continents and cultures.
