Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I get along with just about everyone (even high school students!).
I truly appreciate the simple joys in life, be it jumping in
puddles or having pancakes with friends at 4am. Life is too short
to spend constantly yearning for more and ignoring all that we have
I perform Improvised and Sketch comedy in front of paying audiences
at the Dallas Comedy House in Deep Ellum on a regular basis, and
it's one of the most fun and rewarding things I have ever done in
my life. I've met amazing people, made lasting friendships, and
above all have laughed (and made others laugh) on a constant
I'm not a party animal or club goer, but I do love having the
occasional drink or going out and exploring Dallas. Despite having
lived here most of my life, I'm quickly realizing just how much
there is to do and how many things I have yet to discover. For
example, I recently learned of a place where you can go jump on
Giant Trampolines! On the other hand, I spent way too much time
trying to figure out the symbolism in some Chinese Art at the crow
museum, so there are a lot of opportunities (I love Karaoke,
Kayaking and Museums, to name a few - a pretty broad
Despite this, it's the conversations, the company and the
friendships we form that truly make things special. Many of the
most rewarding experiences of my life have occurred while simply
talking to friends and enjoying each others company, epic adventure
or not! Intellectual or philosophical conversations are fantastic!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on my second year as a High School Social Studies
Teacher, and I'm absolutely loving it! It's wonderful to be able to
interact and joke with the students while teaching them and
(hopefully) enriching their lives. Also, what other job lets you
dress up like a World War 1 soldier and leap about the room with a
NERF rifle reenacting battles in front of a live audience?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping others get over disputes and disagreements and find some
common ground. I don't get angry easily, and I'm a great diplomat.
I really try to empathize with others and consider their points of
view, and it really pays off in the end!

That I'm a Ginger and don't burst into flames when I walk into
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I teach history for many reasons, one of
which is that I love history (Crazy right?!) Consequently, I enjoy
reading a lot of history and you can find me quite contentedly
snuggled up reading for 3 hours about something TOTALLY AWESOME,
such as a 1000 page biography of Napoleon. I also enjoy fantasy and
Movies/TV: As far as TV goes, I love good scifi
shows such as Doctor Who, Firefly, and Battlestar Galactica, along
with dramas such as Sherlock and The Walking Dead. For movies, my
taste can vary wildly, but if it were possible to have watched the
Lord of The Rings Trilogy too many times, I would certainly
qualify! Thank goodness that's not actually possible.
Music: I find that menial tasks such as cleaning
the kitchen become infinitely more interesting with a booming
orchestra and choir to make you feel like you’re saving the world
in the process. Accordingly I love film scores, symphonic metal,
and Gregorian choirs joined with electric guitar. Also, you can't
go wrong with Freddie Mercury's voice.
Food: I’m quite open-minded about food, and I love
delicious new things. Cooking can be fun, and I’m fairly good at
it. However, I do have an ongoing feud with the beef tips and rice
that launched a nefarious plot to kill me in the midst of the
college Cafeteria a few years back.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Long nighttime walks in the rain, watching the
droplets sparkle as they fall in front of the streetlights and
feeling the cold water wash my troubles away. While splashing in
all the puddles like a five year old, of course.
2. Being able to express myself through the beauty
of writing, be it in a serious manner or via a story about how my
professors are secretly a band of galaxy-conquering Guinea-Pig
Pirates bent on wiping out humanity.
3. Those rare moments when I have a building or
vehicle to myself and I can turn up the volume to a wonderful song,
burst out “singing”, and do some crazy-jumble of contortions that’s
apparently supposed to be called “dancing”. Don't worry, you need
not be witness to it should you not want to see the horror.
4. The waves of brilliant ideas and inspirations
that come to me whenever I take a shower or a bath. I sometimes
wonder if my good friend Mr. Bubble is psychic.
5. My inner ten year old. He’s a pretty cool guy
when you give him a college education to work with, and unlike my
actual ten year old self, he doesn’t spend his time thinking about
Pokémon. He does still play with Legos however.
6. The opportunity to learn new things and gain a
newfound appreciation of the world around me and a humble
recognition of my own ignorance in comparison.
7. Friendship, Family and the opportunity to share
in the joys of life with those I care about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I made straight A’s and am allowed to teach children even
though I accidentally put body wash in my hair at least once a week
(never shampoo on my body though!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be out relaxing with friends and playing pool or poker, or
perhaps I'm just saving the universe from certain destruction in a
video game. Or, most exciting of all, I’ll be manically plotting to
make my students brains explode in sheer awe at the amount of
knowledge they’ve learned (also known as lesson planning). So far
I’ve been unsuccessful, but I’ll keep trying!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have three kidneys! So, if yours just falls out and you need a
spare, let me know!
