In his own words

I'm not your "ordinary" kind of guy. More than anything, I value intellect, honesty, knowledge, curiosity, a sense of adventure, a multifaceted nature, a good education and an interesting life. I'm eclectic, intelligent, passionate, sensual and cerebral. I take great pleasure in the unusual and the extraordinary. I tend to challenge people, and I like to be challenged as well. I find mental exercise as important as physical exercise, and the workout that I get from intellectual discussion is just as exhilirating as the one I get at the gym. Friends often tell me I'm too much for many women to handle, but that for an extraordinary woman, I'm the perfect man. While I trained as an actor in my foolish youth, I'm an attorney in solo practice, doing arts/entertainment and general business law. It's an unorthodox practice; my cat, Lysette, has her own chair under a warm lamp near my desk. I work upstairs from my home in San Francisco, and spend time in the country at a family house in West Marin. I love the theatre and the arts in all forms, and I love to travel and to spend time with international/multicultural friends. All in all, I've built a pretty good life, and I'm hoping to share it with someone wonderful. I'm four years divorced, with an adorable 8-year old son. I'm looking for an extraordinary woman, educated, charming, intellectually challenging, a candidate for commitment and a family. Someone who is strong and settled in herself, who knows who she is and what she wants. A woman who finds joy and wonder in life, who appreciates the essential humor of existence and who is fascinated with every aspect of the world around us. Someone who's adventurous in all ways, who's experienced many things and is always ready to learn about new ones. Is that too much to ask for? I hope not! I'm partial to people who are multilingual. I speak fluent French and near-fluent Spanish, and I'd adore a woman who could converse in these languages; I also manage in, Italian and Japanese and have a residual understanding of German and Russian (barely). Life can be so wonderful when you share it with someone who's thoughtful, open, playful and adventurous, and who has a sense of life and love as joyous theatre. In my book, a truly wonderful woman knows how to make you feel like her hero, like Superman, Gilgamesh and Oscar Gordon all at the same time. And of course, she'd be an accomplished (but honorable) flirt! ;-) A perfect first date would begin in the sort of place where the first of us to arrive could watch the other walk across the room, be struck by their grace, charm and presence, and hope that this wonderfully exciting person was in fact the one they'd come to meet. It would involve cocktails and dinner, good food, good wine, a lot of deep conversation and an electrical charge building in the air. It would end with a kiss that melted into an embrace that ended only when we both realized we didn't dare let it go any further, not yet. And it would leave us both wanting more. Soon. NO WINKS NOTICE: Thanks for reading this far. If you've made it to the end, let me ask, please, if we could dispense with the "wink" phase. I almost never respond to winks. I'm looking for a bold woman who can summon up the courage and eloquence to write something substantive. So please, don't just wink. Write something that will get my attention. Suggested opener: "Hi! I just read your Match profile, and . . . ." The rest is up to you!

Liberal

Favorite hot spots

I will travel anywhere, especially to places new to me. And I've been to lots of places. France (incl. the DOM/TOM) makes my heart sing. Unexplored places make my blood race. I've never been to Guadeloupe, Micronesia or North Africa. Let's go!

College

University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

Favorite things

I love varied cheeses, mushrooms, fresh oysters (!) and unusual edibles. On a recent trip to the Peruvian Amazon, I enjoyed cuy, chonta, majas, grenadillas, venado, lulu and suri (gusanos asados); among other things. Do you dare ask about them?

For fun

I enjoy theatre, film, classical music, galleries and the arts. I read voraciously. I'm passionate about civics (as opposed to politics). I love to spend time in the country. Mycology, old vehicles and new experiences always pique my interest!
