I grew up in Chicago; traveled here to attend school at U. C. Berkeley. I'm Italian-American, live in Albany and work as a musician, specifically as a drummer/percussionis t with a variety of bands. Otherwise, my interests are pretty diverse. I work out (basketball, weightlifting, yoga, and spinning classes) virtually every day. I am very health-conscious and have been a vegetarian for a long time, although you need not be. Other interests include: sports (participant and observer) gardening, cooking, movies, vintage cars, animals, bike riding, etc. I'm a very, very young 59 and athletic. I have a shaved head, butterscotch eyes, a nice complexion, and a good sense of humor. I don't drink, smoke, or use drugs -- though I certainly would not tell you what to do. Basically, I am a happy guy living an interesting life, doing things that I enjoy and that challenge me. I am single and unattached. I'm not looking for a mirror image of myself, but, it would be nice if we had some interests in common. Finally, I appreciate situations/relations hips in which everyone gets to benefit to some degree; in other words, we each get to enjoy some of what we want. What I don't enjoy is a relationship in which one person benefits at the expense of another.
