I like taking long walks in the woods or on the beach, and holding hands in the moonlight, looking into the eyes–and stroking the hair–of my dear life partner* Bernadette. We’ve been (in love) from Brooklyn & Great Neck to Jones Beach & Montauk Point (all on Lawn Guyland); to Oregon & California (from San Francisco over to Yosemite and down to Big Sur); (Santa Fe, Albuquerque & Taos) New Mexico and (Rio Caliente) Mexico; from Montreal to The Canadian Rockies; down the whole East coast, especially into Virginia (hello, Richmond!) and from Jupiter Beach to St. Petersburg, Florida; all around St. John (USVI); and from Sydney to Byron Bay, Australia. So you can read more about me here, on Facebook, and on MySpace, but not on Match.com or eHarmony.com! [* Note in 2016: That was written in 2008. That (phase of that) relationship lasted from (a “blind date” on March 6, 1993 through 2015–a very good run!]
My education progressed from PS 193, to JHS 194, to Flushing High School, to Hunter College of CUNY.
I have lived in Queens; The Bronx; Manhattan; New Paltz; Binnewater; Ulster Park; and Great Neck, NY. Now, as fate (karma?) would have it, (after all the bad things I unknowingly said about the state) I am in Northern NJ!
Far away places that I’ve been to, before B, include London, Paris & Madrid, thanks to my sister, for my 18th birthday, and then Lisbon, Nice, Barcelona & Rome, the next year, by myself! Other major trips, that I recall, were made to California, South Carolina, and several times to Hawaii (Oahu, Kauai & Maui).
Several major employers were Hunter College, McCann-Erickson, Radio-TV Reports, and Salomon Brothers.
Jobs have included office administrator, construction worker, bartender, film editor, PC support analyst, performing arts publicist, newspaper photo-columnist, restaurant maitre d’, and webmaster.
Hobbies currently include photography, anything with computers or wires, playing drums, collecting advertising glassware for my bar… and now a blog!
Sports (playing, not watching) include mountain biking, volleyball, racquetball, hiking. I used to ice-skate & roller-skate and then I used to roller-blade. Tennis, anyone…?
Do you (want to) know me (better)?
