Having Fun and Improving the Planet
I am a life-long New Yorker, a politically active progressive, a lawyer and filmmaker. I like to see the US through the eyes of foreigners. I like belly-laughs, red wine and dinners with good friends; conversations that go late into the night; talking about politics and international film. I am gay and like meeting other gay men and lesbians, but also have many friends who are not gay.
I try to keep my mind stimulated, work toward bringing the world closer to how I'd like it to be, laugh as often as possible, and keep learning about the new and unfamiliar.
