About me

Gender MALE
Industry Non-Profit
Location New York, NY, United States
Introduction I'm a 45-year-old father of two, a spouse, painter, photographer, former historian, and denizen of Greenwich Village in New York City. Having spent the last 11 years in Manhattan, the previous ten in beautiful but philistine East Tennessee and everything before that in Virginia, I've acquired a weird perspective that is at various times: extremely liberal, anti-southern, pro-southern, anti-suburbia, pro-NYC, anti-NYC, pro-socialist, Anglophilic, nostalgic, long-winded, anti-Republican, spiritual . . . and on occasion just ornery.
Favorite Movies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, When Harry Met Sally, Shipping News, Shadowlands, any of the Merchant-Ivory productions, American Splendor, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility
Favorite Music Everything from bluegrass (The Stanley Brothers), Baroque, Beatles, John Dowland, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Snow Patrol, Glenn Miller . . . in short, I have very eclectic tastes . . . Just no Rap!
Favorite Books Waugh - Brideshead Revisited; Delderfield - To Serve them All My Days; Kunstler - The Geography of Nowhere; anything by Bill Bryson; Fast Food Nation; The Lunar Men; and too many more to name.
