My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One of my students told me I sparkle -- and if an undergrad says it, it must be true.

I don't take myself too seriously. I am, however, passionate about most things I do.

I live for the kind of conversations that go on for hours, stretching out and leaving everyone surprised and wanting more. I thrive on good stories, living them and telling them and hearing them. I write real letters. I don't get bored.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a historian. I research, I write, I agonize about writing, and I'm working to improve history education, especially at the college level.

When I'm not at my desk, I prefer to be in motion. I like to get out in the world--going exploring, getting lost in new places, people-watching in the city. I study dance (modern, Haitian, and Afro-Cuban) somewhat seriously, and I'd love to get better at swing dancing. I'm always up for a walk somewhere new or a dip in the ocean. I just bought a bicycle, and I'm excited about spring.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
adapting to new circumstances, hand-making pasta, hosting dinner parties, noticing, list-making, dodging people on the sidewalk.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm either wearing big glasses or squinting slightly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - Sometimes. Sure. Why not.

Music - On repeat. At the symphony, at a bar, in the shower. Folk, pop...I'm agnostic. I used to play clarinet well. I don't anymore.

Food - I love to cook with and for great people. I tend to get stuck in cooking ruts, where I rotate between two or three things in a row. I'm trying to be a bit more creative with my cooking, but right now it's (more than) passable. I love soup.

Books - Yes. At home, lately children's books and graphic novels. Given my line of work, though, I'm basically reading all the time. Right now I'm reading a popular history of ballooning and David Bezmozgis's The Free World.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
reading material, passport, touch, coincidence, movement, schemes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next adventure/research trip. Other people, friends and family, and relationships of all kinds. History and memory. How to be a better teacher. "Where can I put all my books and not clutter my apartment?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Family, friends, wine, beer, dancing, music (listening, clumsily playing). Working? Sometimes working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It used to be that I didn't have and didn't want a smartphone. Then I got a smartphone. But I still refuse to use the calendar function.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are quirky, kind, and intelligent. You can teach me something new, and laugh with and at me. You're curious about others, and you're going places, but are also happy being still.

You create things, but know that growing tomatoes in a pot, then picking them, doesn't make you a farmer.

You're unselfish.
