Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am really, really bad at writing open-ended autobiographies. I'm
good at writing all kinds of other things, but not autobios.
Unfortunately, it's a mandatory question, so let's give it a
I tend to be awkward & soft-spoken in new situations or with
new people, but that changes as I become more comfortable
(sometimes very quickly). I love movies, music, reading, writing,
games (board/video/trivia/physical), performing at open-mics, &
spending time with the awesome people I'm lucky enough to be able
to call my friends.
UPDATE: I'm currently in an utterly wonderful relationship with a
woman I met right here on OK Cupid! So, you can chalk me up as a
positive testimonial that this can work.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished my Master's in Math Education in December 2011, &
right now I'm working my tail off tutoring and substitute teaching
to make student loan payments while I try to find a teaching
position. I'm also writing like a fiend (scripts & songs,
mostly), hoping to find some venue of production for the tales
& tunes that flow out of my mind.
(With regard to that last point, I've begun participating in St.
Lou Fringe, with productions in both the 2013 & 2014 Fringe
Festivals, & I will be submitting for the 2015 festival as

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My work schedule is rather irregular, so on Fridays I could be
working (though usually not), I could be out with friends at a
movie/concert/physical activity, I could be in with friends
gaming/talking/watching stuff, or I could just be chilling at home.

Also if you're not demanding a "spark" the first time we meet. My
personal history has shown me that the "spark" is wildly
unreliable, & partly as a result, I can be a little closed off
at first. With time, that changes.
ALSO also if you're not looking for a date or a hookup. My
girlfriend absolutely rocks my world.
