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. East Coast NYC metro (northern New Jersey) raised and college educated (Boston U., URI and Brown) I seek a similar background in a partner.
I currently live in Contra Costa County, 30 miles directly East of San Francisco.
Interests?... classical choral singing (First Alto), art, classical music, gardening, cooking and international travel. Addicted to the NY TIMES and Charlie Rose. Love to read history. Favorite book is "Hamilton" by Chernow. Not a camper or RV'er.
About the one I'm looking for...An equal intellectually, emotionally and financially.
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.
