Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a writer
at a local community college
. I enjoy
, and horror
in both literary
and movie form
. I'm fascinated by people
and enjoy getting to know them -- the more idiosyncratic and
off-beat they are, the better!
I am esoteric, imaginative, and empathetic

Beyond my teaching
, the most important thing in the
world to me is being a good father to my two children

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding a conversation
, listening, drawing
people out, making jokes, problem-solving
seeing multiple possibilities in every situation, working with
language and with people, both leading and working as a member of a

never tried before or new restaurants I've never eaten at. Chinese
food is probably my all-time favorite, though.
