Hi, my name is Ken, don't let the name Roughryder22 scare you away. It just implies that it has been a long hard road getting to this point in my life. But it is a life with no regrets. The number 22 just keeps reoccurring in my day to day activities...home address, apartments, for example, I once worked at ScreenGems for a soap opera in NYC, the address was 222 E44th street.You see what I mean? You might have a recurring number too.
I was raised by a grandmother and a single parent (sculptor) mom (both now deceased). They taught me to always cherish women. I'm also all about empowering women, I've been fortunate to work with some of the best, like Jane Goodall, Mary Robinson, Maya Angelou, Michelle Bachalet and Yoko Ono. My grandmother (Anne C. Jefferson) was an early suffragette from Philadelphia who became one of the first female English professors at Cornell University. She fought 94 years ago for women to have the right to vote. I'm very proud of my families historical contributions.
I live in NY and Pennsylvania and work in Manhattan and Philly. I can go from a black tie affair to a flea market without missing a beat. I do enjoy many of the good things in life: theater, dinner, galleries and museums. But, I can also just stay at home, cook and be comfortable doing nothing at all. In other words, sometimes I need to unwind and rejuvenate. But, I'm no couch potato! Besides, If there are to be children included in our mix, what better way could quality time be spent together? I've raised three sons and I've loved being a parent to them. I enjoy playing baseball, soccer and basketball with family and friends. My backyard in PA has been transformed into a Spring Training Camp with a batting cage and pitcher's mound/bull pen. My youngest son wants to play for MLB. Patrick lives most of the time in NYC with his mother, but we have joint custody.
I have worked for the last decade as a television director at the United Nations. Recently I started screenwriting. It seems like a whole new career direction is before me. I enjoy comedy and prefer films with great dialogue. "Somethings Got To Give"', is a great example. It's best to be flexible with our schedules and be open minded to each others ideas and needs. Controlling someone is not my idea of a good time... I'm sure, it's not yours either. Professionally, I'm at the top of my game. Now, I hope to find my elusive life long partner...Where oh where is this mystery woman? (PS) I love dogs, cats and all animals!
I'm an attentive and romantic man who enjoys intimacy and affection. I truly love kissing, holding hands and late night embraces. If you want to feel loved and protected, I'm that kind of guy. Finding the right partner in life is a little like running in a 5K or a marathon... worth it in the end!
Coffee, lunch, dinner or wine tasting at a nearby vineyard, antiquing or flea marketing, drive to New Hope, PA, NJ or NYC with the top down & maybe catch a civic theater play. We can figure this one out together.
