Introduction I am a mid-20th century gay man still trying to get a handle on how to live life with meaning. I live in Portland Oregon with my husband/partner of 35+ years & the terriers: Lulu & Junior. As an actor I have been in over 150 full stage productions, 12 films/TV, over 50 commercials & voice overs. Our home & garden in Seattle (1981-2001) were published several times & were featured in a "coffee table" book- Flea Market Decorating by Meredith Press. That garden was on the Seattle Art Museum's Tour Of Artists' Gardens in 1999. We moved to Portland in a fit of middle age anxiety in 2001. We spend our time & money working on our house & garden in a working class bungalow, in a working class neighborhood. The old-ball-& chain & I are thought to be a little nutty. ME: complicated & opinionated & neat-nick & cocktail drinker, tree hugger, seeker, & Cancer Survivor. Kinsey 6, Myers-Briggs ENFJ, Capricorn/Snake
