The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm a city kid at heart (from Boston originally), but take incredible pleasure in the ocean (my favorite local escape is Bald Head Island) and the mountains (Asheville). By day I enjoy my real estate career with Sotheby's very much (once upon a time I managed symphony orchestras for a living, but I left that behind five years ago). By night I enjoy concerts, performances, cooking, staying in, and trying to keep up with all the latest restaurants in the Triangle.
I typically spend my leisure time
There are probably more places on my bucket list than I'll ever actually get to, but I sure would like to see as much of the world as possible. I enjoy going to LOTS of restaurants (good ones, preferably) and am a bit of a foodie (not not a snob about it), and I also love going to concerts (both classical and pop), performances (dance and broadway), and I suppose my perfect weekend is a 3-day weekend away seeing someplace wonderful, taking in the art museums, eating great food, walking a lot, and it's even more fun when we decide to go on the trip on about one day's notice.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm not sure I have a real definitive list in mind, but I'm hopeful that my future will include someone who is smart, ambitious, caring, supportive, pretty, loving, spontaneous, and happy. While I do hope to re-marry someday, that's not an immediate need -- I will just say here that the reason I'm on the site is to find a special someone that could become a significant relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
To the point that it almost makes me crazy, I'm always told I'm energetic and enthusiastic. Yes, I do like a good conversation and I tend to be open and perhaps that means I wear my heart on my sleeve to some degree. Be that as it may, I'm sincere and caring, I can play the piano and sing (but not at the same time), and I am passionate about my job and what life could look like with the right person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Some recent favorites were The Time Traveler's Wife, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Kafka on the Shore and Peace Like A River.
