A former newspaper reporter and technical recruiter with Silicon Valley companies such as Google and Microsoft, I retired recently. A special interest in genealogy prompted me to visit relatives in the Loire Valley and find my great grandfather's village in the French Alps where my French family owns hotels. On the Italian side the family is from Basilicata and this trip I will take in the future.
East Coast, NYC metro (northern New Jersey) raised and college educated (Boston U., URI and Brown) . Lived in San Francisco Bay Area of California for 40 years mostly in Lamorinda.
Love the outdoors but not a camper or RVer. Foreign films and classical choral singing are hobbies. Favorite read is Chernow's "Hamilton". I was married to a high school sweetheart for 11 years long ago and have one adult daughter who lives in San Francisco and a five year old half Tahitian grandson who is gorgeous.
About the one I'm looking for...an equal intellectually, emotionally and financially. Addicted to Charlie Rose and the NYT would be good.
A calm demeanor, strong intellect and a kind, generous spirit plus someone close to my age would make for a stronger connection. A patient guy capable of thoughtful planning tempered with an ability to live in the present works for me. Longing for an intellectual connection with a thoughtful, highly educated person. Renaissance man please apply.
