Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just got back from the world cup and the Amazon. It was pretty
amazing, but I wish I could have shared the experience with someone
I'm very much a big kid although I feel like I've got a little
substance to back it up these days. Probably why I enjoy coaching
and teaching so much. I'm easily amused and my students are almost
endlessly amusing (or attempting to drive me crazy... depends on
I love to play games (real games not figurative games). Sports,
board games, rock paper scissors I'll probably have fun with it and
the oh so witty banter that accompanies it. I love to be active and
am vehemently opposed to shoes that I can't join an impromptu
athletic activity in.
I'm pretty nerdy. I mean I'm a physics teacher so it sort of comes
with the territory, but I definitely think like a nerd too. I'm the
sort of person who if someone exclaims "what are the odds?" might
actually try to calculate them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a high school physics teacher at a wonderful school, I also
coach soccer in the fall and basketball in the winter.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Self-Deprecation... oops now I'm not good at anything...
Not acting my age
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
From far away most people notice that I'm tall. When they get
closer they generally still see that I am tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love science fiction, fantasy and comedy, but ideally not
something too serious!
Movies: Lord of the rings (I'm a bad nerd, I like the movies better
than the books). Lucky number Sleven, An American President (Maybe
this should go under private/embarrassing), Star Wars, Batman
Begins, The Lion King (yeah thats right), Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The
Hangover, Minority Report, Air Force One, Eternal Sunshine of the
Books: Just read Ready Player One and it was fantastic. Highly
recommend for anyone who likes SciFi. Other favorites:Harry Potter,
Pastwatch the Redemption of Christopher Columbus, A Song of Ice and
Fire series, Enders Game, Speaker for the Dead, Foundation, The
TV: Firefly, Psych, Modern Family, House, Leverage, How I Met Your
Mother, White Collar, Friday Night Lights, Castle.
Food: I'm a veggie so you know how that goes. But I'm really not
all that picky. I'm not so tolerant of very spicy food. I don't
cook too much that's elaborate for myself, but I do enjoy a quality
Music: I'm not much of a discerning music type. But I will admit
that I recently lead a sing along to some of the Lion King's music
with my students.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Students to spar with
A sport to think about, watch, coach or play.
Dogs. I don't have one, but the fact that they exist is very
important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Physics, why my students are crazy. How to improve my basketball
team's zone offense mentality.
Does this new blog post mean oktrends is back?!?! I love it so
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either I'm dealing with a frisbee weekend, or I'm sitting on a
couch watching TV because I didn't get back from coaching til 7 and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess private means embarrassing? In that case I suppose my
sister beating me up until I was 15 qualifies.
