About Me


to meet people who are open minded, tolerant, interesting, and....nice!


meet new people, having a nice dinner, some drinks, hiking, and relaxing together. speaking italian, french and spanish whenever I can. I am curious about people and other places.
I'm gay, and live with my husband of 21 years. We live in a great neighborhood in San Francisco where we can walk everywhere. We are always interested in meeting people from other places.


work hard, but stop to enjoy life, and smile as much as possible.
