About me: I was born and raised in Germany, on...

In his own words

About me: I was born and raised in Germany, on a farm, among lots of animals and lots of nature, so those are in my blood. That made me first of all a down-to-earth, self-reliant man. Came to the US at ten years old, and am therefore a mix of Old and New World attitudes, values, approaches. I’m idealistic, a romantic, I like to back the underdog, standing up for and doing what I think is right, and I am true to my word! One of my childhood heroes was Albert Schweitzer, a doctor who went to Africa to set up a clinic in the jungle, but not without somehow taking an organ with him so he could play his beloved Bach! After coming to the States I grew up in L.A., then found myself in North Carolina as a guest of the US Army, where I was a Special Forces Medic. (Must have been the Schweitzer influence). For a young man, the Army and the South were radicalizing experiences, and changed my politics completely (to the left). I also fell in love there for the first time, built myself a house with my proverbial bare hands on ten acres of beautiful forest while getting a degree in Zoology from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Masters from Duke. At this time I was bitten by the film bug and moved to Manhattan to attend NYU Grad Film School for my MFA, and became a film-maker. I pursued that career both there and later in LA where I worked as a cinematographer and traveled a good part of the world for many years, work that I loved, but in an industry that was at best difficult for someone with values of honesty and integrity and a desire to raise a family. When my marriage ended I stopped pursuing that vocation in order to be there for my two young daughters, who needed my presence in their lives and who now have grown into two strong, intelligent, beautiful young women of whom I am immeasurably proud. I now work as a builder/ contractor (which I also enjoy) and still do some shooting occasionally (3 music videos recently). I believe life should be lived with a certain intensity, a certain passion. One ought to look for the path that is more challenging, not always the easy one. One of my favorite sayings is Viktor Frankl’s “What is to give light must endure burning”. All this sounds pretty monk-like and serious, but I am not. I LOVE to dance, sing like a wild man, and throw great parties. I’m funny, love stand-up comedy (the bravest and most immediate art form) and almost any and all music. Can’t say I’m much of a cook, tho. Currently I’m also coaching an Under-14 boys’ soccer team. Great fun, but similar to herding cats. I had a vegetable garden till recently, where I sometimes ate dinner fresh right off the vine. Mmm. About you: You are open-minded, well-read, spontaneous, outgoing and out-spoken. You are educated AND intelligent, and pretty. You believe that inside everyone there is a good person who deserves respect and understanding, regardless. You are persistent, not easily turned from your goals. You are athletic and don’t mind sweating. You can talk about almost anything, are not afraid of bugs (spiders excepted) and are willing and able to get your hands dirty. You are interested in quality, not quantity. You are more Norma-Jean Baker than Marilyn Monroe. You are kind, generous, loving, and forgiving. You laugh a lot, can dance, enjoy a crossword puzzle, and like plays and good films You are trying hard to live the life you want, and are comfortable in your own skin. Can’t wait to meet you.
