76, Malibu, CA
I am a lawyer, hiker and photographer who is looking for one lovely, very special woman with whom to spend the rest of my life & have fun. How about you? I would like to find my "someone special" and marry her. I believe she is somewhere in this world, but seemingly difficult to find. For fun: I love to hike, I spent time studying photography with Ansel Adams before he died, I have owned 3 fishing boats and a small sailboat and fished for years, I play golf and tennis, swim and love to dance (if I can find someone who likes it too). My job: I am my own boss and my time is my own, except for deadlines that are present at times. I am a lawyer and have been one for years. I am a nationally-recognized expert in a sector of banking law. I write political articles for fun too. My ethnicity: I was born & raised in West Los Angeles (Westwood, Brentwood). My father was of German ancestry who came to the U.S. in 1849. My maternal grandfather was a Scot & my maternal grandmother was Irish. My ancestors first came to America from Bristol, England around 1760. My education: A.B., UCLA, economics; two law degrees, one from Berkeley and another from Georgetown. Favorite hot spots: I have traveled extensively in the U.S., Europe, Ireland, England, Scotland, Canada, the Caribbean, the Bahamas and the Hawaiian Islands, and love them as well as the people. I have covered Europe from one end to the other (e.g., 15,000 miles in three months), the Hawaii islands (most of the islands), the Bahamas (e.g., fishing tournaments), the Caribbean (e.g., the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands), Canada, part of Mexico and I have made 12 trips to Ireland, spending 2-3 weeks at a time there. Favorite things: I worked in national politics for many years, and still follow it closely, for fun & work. I read books about politics, Alexander the Great (who probably influenced world history more than anyone except Jesus), watch TV & listen to Bach, country music, and lots of other music. Last read: "The American Presidency" by Forrest McDonald & "Alexander of Macedon" by Peter Green. Both were excellent books written by true scholars. Also, several times every day I read the London Times, WSJ, USA Today, Washington Post, LA Times, etc., etc., online.
