Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
** I am in a non-traditional relationship with my parter. **
I moved to Milwaukee almost a year ago with my partner. We have
been learning the city. It is a lot of fun, but I know there are
plenty nicks and crannies I have yet to find. I am hellishly busy
with my grad school program an teaching right now. Don't take it
hard if I don't respond right away.
I am an adventurous fellow. I'm up for most anything. I love going
for long bike rides. I have taken three cross country bike rides. I
love to experiment with food. Weekly swing dance sessions are a
must for me. If I don't get out and move (dance, bike, long walk,
etc.) I go crazy.
One day I plan to make it to Israel, Northern Ireland and back to
Basque Country. I really want to see the places that people have
been fighting over for such a long time. I'd really like to gain an
understanding of the places beyond what I have read.
I will try most things three times before I say yay or nay to it.
This has gotten me into some very awkward situations, but mostly it
has been wonderfully successful.
While I enjoy a lot of well written movies, I have a deep love for
bad action movies.
I plan to be eccentric as an old man. I'm currently somewhere
between a third and half way there. Looking forward to it.
**I am up for any culinary challenge. If you have something you
want to try I am happy to work something out with you.**
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working at one of Milwaukee's public Montessori schools. I am
very excited about this. For the next three summers I am going to
be working on my Montessori teaching certification and masters
degree. I think Montessori is an amazing way to educate children,
but can't help but laugh at how hippy it get at time too. I love it
and love to laugh at it.
I'm always playing with food and set aside time every week to
experiment with it (you know, in between the dancing, biking and,
Oh and I swing and blues dance, a lot. If you haven't looked up
blues dancing on youtube you should. It is one of the most fun
types dances, ever.
In my chill time, which is in short supply now-days, I devour
sci-fi, fantasy, and some historical fiction books.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having a good time, and getting others to do the same.
Pretending to be mature in front of my students.
Being a goofball.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A Good Kitchen (and all that goes with it)
Bromances (there seem to be so many in my life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food and dancing are at the top of this list, but I also spend a
lot of time planning my next cross country bicycle tour (and pining
for when I will have the time to do another).
Working at a school I can't help but ponder what makes for good
parenting and what makes bad parenting, how little I really know
about it (seeing as I don't have kids) and how all of that affects
the children. ("Won't somebody PLEASE think of the

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an in-the-closet nerd... guess I'm out now.
I'm only a little older than most of my students (up in my head)
and it takes a lot to keep it from leaking out when I am at school.
