Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently moved back to Edison, NJ from Philadelphia. I've decided
it might be a good time to start making more local friends.
I'm a college professor teaching hospitality management. I am
taking a break from teaching at the moment, but I'm eager to get
back into it. I've always loved cooking and creating memorable

I'm definitely a comedy kind of guy. Amongst my favorite films are
History of the World: Part 1 (or anything Mel Brooks), Spring
Breakdown, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Saved!, Connie and Carla, Drowning
Mona, The American President, Finding Bliss, Dr. Horrible's
Sing-Along Blog, Finding Nemo and Wild Target.
I also love really awful movies. This generally leads me to
watching terrible horror movies. The kind that are so bad they
become good again. (Examples: Death Race 2000, Jesus Christ Vampire
For books, I generally enjoy the fantasy, travel, language and
culture. Some of my favorites are: I'm a Stranger Here Myself by
Bill Bryson, The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling, The Wheel of
Time Series by Robert Jordan, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller and
Bulfinch's Mythology. I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by
George R. R. Martin.
My musical tastes are usually mellow. I enjoy singer-songwriters
and Broadway ballads. That being said, I'll listen to almost
anything on the radio. I have a very eclectic range of musical
tastes. If I had to pick a time period I enjoy most for music it's
the early to mid 90's.
Video game wise I prefer RPG's. Though sometimes I'll play more
action oriented games. My favorite games include: The Final Fantasy
Series, The Shadow Hearts Series, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana,
the Shining Force Series, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.
Food is one of my passions. I'll try anything once. I mostly make
Italian and Mexican food, although, I tend to experiment with a
variety of flavors. There's an excellent Asian market near my
place, so I'm eager to expand my cooking frontiers that way.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Netflix/Hulu - for watching and finding great
2. Things to do on the train (i.e. Book of Puzzles, DS, a Notebook,

4. A good pair of walking shoes

6. Great friends

usually trying to unwind. Sometimes that means going out with
friends. Mostly I enjoy watching movies or catching up on tv.
