My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since you will be reading this first, I appeal to you for your help in getting the hell off of this site. My life is a diverse and happy one. I am profoundly grateful and happy to be living a life that allows me to do so much of what I love –writing, teaching, working both in the arts and in academia- while making a comfortable living at the same time. I am deeply fulfilled by my work, but I also cherish time spent with friends and above all with family. I love to travel, and I am as happy to stay in with friends (or better yet, with one special person) as I am to go out on the town. I am very culturally inclined and have a particular lifelong fondness for theatre. I am an obsessive reader (details below) and I prize love, loyalty and laughter above all things.

Allow me to add that although much of what follows below is written in a jocular vein (to impress you with my devastating sense of humor, doncha know), I am very serious about meeting someone for what I hope will be the last romantic relationship I ever enter into. It may sound like a cliché, but everything in my life is fairly close to perfect: all that is missing is you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In addition to everything else, I have gone back to school and am currently -and happily- pursuing my doctorate at Fordham University.
This allows me to spend much of my time not only reading old plays and poems that most people don't care about, but also sitting around and talking with other people who do care (or at least pretend to). As for the rest, much the same as most, I suspect, though there is never enough time for the really important things like curing diseases or rubbing tanning oil on a goose.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Shakespeare, naturally, and all his contemporaries.

All plays by pretty much anyone are at least worth looking into.

I am a voracious reader, by which I mean that I am pretty much reading something (either for work, school or pleasure and usually all three combined) all the time. And I mean while eating lunch, riding the subway and walking down the street. If I go to my local supermarket without a book, it inspires jocular comments from the cashiers. I will probably be killed by a speeding taxi cab while reading something by John Webster or William Styron. I am resigned to this fate.

I could not possibly begin to list my favorite films, but let it suffice to say that Netflix will be very, very sorry when that cab eventually runs me down. Perhaps it will give the reader some idea of my preferences if I mention that two television series that I currently enjoy are 'Breaking Bad' and 'Game of Thrones'.

I sometimes come off all literary and artsy-fartsy, but I am really just a fanboy at heart.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Common sense
2. Common courtesy
3. A keen sense of my own ridiculousness
4. Excellent conversation
5. The kindness of strangers
6. The kindness of everyone else
7. Above average mathematical skills

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

At a drunken party in High School, I decided it would be a good idea to put Tiger Balm on my eyelids.

I was wrong.
