Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 33 year old idiot with a passion for the creative process.
I've spent my life in the midst of it and even went to great
lengths to try to understand it well enough to teach it to someone.
I'm also a single dad and have a seven year old daughter named
Kiley who spends her summers with me. She's hilarious, too smart

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I completed my undergrad in Studio Art in Pensacola. Went to grad
school at FSU for Art Education. Now, I bike to work when I can,
substitute teach, and officiate youth and high school soccer-- all

recording a new album after 7 or so years of no recording. I have a
page of older stuff on last.fm. Just search for The Max Fischer
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Senseless criticism of books/music/movies, writing sad songs about
the stuff around me. I'm a cocky idiot when it comes to the art
thing--but that's mainly due to the schooling. I promise I'm much
nicer and more civil about teaching it than I am about the stuff I
like or don't like, but I do have pretty strong, relatively
educated opinions. I think I get along pretty well with most
peoples too. Oh and I am more or less addicted to competitive,
elite level ultimate (with the disc and the teams and the endzones,
