My self-summary
I wish I had more to say right now. I'm incredibly bad at talking about myself. I'm just looking to see what's out there. I work in education in which I love. I'm originally from Wilmington, DE, and I get back there and to Philly often. I've finally settled into the Canton section of Baltimore, and truly love my neighborhood. Hopefully, I will meet some new, interesting people!!
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Baltimore two years ago after finishing up a year of service as an AmeriCorps VISTA at a charter school in Northeast Philadelphia. I originally worked for an awesome non profile called Playworks, which goes into schools in low income areas and overhauls their recess program, provides healthy living classes, and creates after school programs and sports leagues. Since then I transitioned back into the classroom. I'm teaching a wonderful class of 1st-3rd graders at a charter school in Baltimore City. In my spare time, I volunteer with the Boys and Girls club, and do a bit of freelance grantwriting. I am in Baltimore during the week, and in the Wilmington/Philly area one or two weekends a month visiting friends and family.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very warm and welcoming. People get along with me very easily. Within the first 10 minutes you talk to me you'll realize how much pop culture interests me ( movie, tv, lit references ) and how much I love sports, especially the Phillies and Penn State football. I am a 4 for 4 guy, so I support the Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, and Eagles.

Food: Anything spicy, Sushi, Cajun, Mexican. I love Han Dynasty in Philly. Deep Blue is my favorite restaurant in Wilmington. If you're looking for take out, Dreamers Cafe in Wilmington is THE BEST!!

Music: I don't listen to a ton of music these days. I'm not crazy about the current music, at least stuff that's mainstream. I love my friends' band Spooky Speaky. In the past loved Wyclef Jean, Wu Tang, Lauryn Hill, Medeski Martin and Wood, Ben Folds Five, Radiohead, Jay-Z, Beck, Alicia Keys. Adelle is pretty solid. What a voice!
The six things I could never do without
1. My laptop
2. Family
3. Sports
4. Sex
5. My grill
6. Gatorade
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I would like to go on a ballpark/brewery tour of the East Coast. I spend a ton of time thinking about social justice and equality. It's a big part of my career.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. Out on the town. Playing or watching some sort of sport. Home reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once, long long ago, I was a huge fan of Dawson's Creek. What can I say? I was in high school when it came out.

So here's a new admission. I've been in a number of non monogamous relationships in the past. They've all been to different degrees. It's taken a while for me to be comfortable with it and to speak about it openly. It's not something I neccesarily need in the future, but any potential romantic interests needs to know and accept that it's part of my past.
You should message me if
1. You enjoy sports
2. You're an avid reader
3. You're an open minded, liberal person
4. You loved Arrested Development as much as I did.
5. You are GGG
6. If you want to show me around Baltimore/go to an Orioles game (however I am a loyal Phillies fan)
7. Social justice is important to you.
8. You don't think that feminism is a dirty word.

Of course, none of this matters if you're a cool person who enjoys having a good time and is interested by my profile (yes conservatives are welcome too. This question as been asked of me quite a few times!).

Addendum: actually, some of this matters a lot. If you're ok with people discrimating against people because of their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc, than please pass by my profile.
