My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an educator interested in languages and the classroom as a space for healthy questioning and civic training. I get my jollies from goofy interactions with strangers, strolls, bargain carts, dumpster diving, and French pop music. I landed in education after floating around France as a migrant farmhand and, the son of farmer folk, I feel deeply connected to ag and food culture.
I grew up in Missouri and shuffled between France and the US until arriving in Philly in summer 2013. I collect postcards and geography dinner plates, cook vegetarian things, talk about community, and spend a lot of time on SEPTA. Cooking dinner is my reset button. Philadelphia is my jam. I don't know words beautiful enough to express how hugely I enjoy the I Love you/I Hate You section of the City Paper:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It's a process, and it's all how a person responds to it. After bouncing around for several years, I'm growing some roots here, finding my place, trying to show up in the world, corralling kids, writing lesson plans, and thinking about buying a house. Not settled yet, but I get to do what I love to do in a community that nurtures and surprises me. My folks are far away so I'm into finding my people here.
I'm sometimes an old man parading as a younger man.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

So much music, and it changes with the wind. A few with staying power: Rufus Wainwright, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Jenny Lewis, Christine and the Queens, Pierre Lapointe, and Mirah. I impulse-buy spirituality books I hear about on the radio.

I listen to loads of podcasts. My favorites: This American Life, On Being, Les Pieds sur terre, the Savage Lovecast.

I don't really watch TV (not strictly opposed to it; I just haven't owned one in years). I love going to concerts. My first was No Doubt during the Tragic Kingdom days. Most recently, I saw Yelle.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've gone without many things but never without music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. The work weeks are rough so not often is it party-hardying.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you feel inclined to. If you value community and think about your place in yours. If you strive for clarity in communication. If you sometimes read books while on public transit.
