I create corporate training programs and on the side I am a life coach.
How about we… we discuss/debate the New York Times Editorials and Op-Eds over coffee?
How about we… go on a guided group tour of the Metropolitan Museum and discuss the art afterward over coffee?
How about we… Improv games (like Who's Line is it Anyway)? It's just the two of us so the "performance" is just for us and our laughter and enjoyment.
An awesome place I've visited:
For me, awesome is connected to intellectual stimulation so....I used to go to a yearly international creativity conference that was truly awesome...now I present a workshop annually at much smaller version of the conference at a beautiful Sufi retreat center.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Toss up: Chariots of Fire, Matrix, Mulholland Drive, ...and got to say it, love action movies Die Hard 1 (one of the best action/suspense scripts ever, well worth studying if you are into screenwriting) and Die Hard 2.(prefer it though no action movie has matched the script of Die Hard 1)
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I'm an open book...my life has been a succession of reinventing myself for different careers: 1. academia (my dream was to be a TENURED college professor) TO 2. sales (that jars and shocks most people: going from teaching Business Ethics to being a pharmaceutical sales rep, well I did say I reinvented myself!!), TO 3. corporate training, consulting and creating train manuals and workshops (that's the real reason i went into sales to get to be a corporate trainer), TO 4. special type of life coach . . . TO . . . 5.???? and not sure what or if I will need to reinvent myself for yet another career?? And if I had my life to live over again I'd be a psychotherapist :-)
Obscure knowledge I possess:
This is pretty obscure otherwise I might have a job teaching in academia......Hegel's early philosophical writings . . .Only mentioning it because never had the chance to before...and this was decades ago ...Don't worry , we do NOT EVER have to discuss and I won't ask you about or tell you about!!!
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
playful: childlike in joking and laughing, adult like in bantering and teasing other really attractive qualities to me .... someone who wants to be : moral (TRY to live by Golden Rule), kindhearted and nice, creative (in whatever realm and way they choose), expressive of their thoughts and feelings.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm a really nice guy, who's a good son (call my 85 year old mother every day after my stepfather died) and a good brother (call my sister every Sunday for the last 30 or so years).
