In his own words

As a journalist by trade and a musician by hobby, I’ve been fortunate and determined enough to meet many of my professional and personal goals. I’ve written children’s books, create and play music and run marathons with sub-four-hour times. I really enjoy spending time with my 11-year old son, whom I have half time. His creativity and enthusiasm inspire me. We do all sorts of activities together, from playing music together and geocaching to making Lego stop-motion movies and taking walks. He's a really good guy. His classmates agree: They once voted him the nicest kid in the class! I’m a city boy by nature, but Columbia — with its utopian ideals, open spaces and excellent schools — is a great place to raise my son. I get to DC and Baltimore often. In fact, I love to travel and visited Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Montreal, Portland (Oregon), and Toronto in the past couple of years. Outside of work and my son, my main passions are running and music. I take care of myself physically and recently finished my fourth marathon. I compose music, play keyboards/synthesizers and have produced three CDs, including an international tribute album that featured 15 artists from nine countries. I've recently played keyboards for a local performance of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album, and have since joined a local rock band with other adults like myself. I've been taking drum lessons for two years. I’m ultimately seeking a long-term relationship with a woman who is positive, easygoing, fit, smart and funny.She’s as interested in learning about the world and others as I am. I look and act younger than I am, so naturally, I love a playful nature. People and relationships are a lot like written pieces and musical compositions: Perfection is impossible, and their beauty depends on the viewpoint. If you can appreciate someone like me, let’s see if we can create the relationship that’s just right for you and me.
