Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

I try to keep my life grounded. Despite two graduate degrees, I remain casual to a fault. I am a teacher and have been for eighteen years. I possess a tenacious inner drive and intellectual curiosity that contradicts my soft-spoken and kind of Zen qualities (Zen without a capital Z). In a past life I sold work in a few mid-range galleries.

Sincere compliments and laughing at my jokes are the gifts I value most. I enjoy serendipitous journeys through thoughtful conversations or places. I often exploit opportunities to provoke a laugh or take a bunny-trail. I like things simple, I keep a few clothes and don’t own anything that might be called a “man toy,” especially, if it’s loud, on wheels, or has the word “jet” in its description. On Myers Briggs I am an INTP. Ultimately, I do have an eye toward a long-term relationship, but for now, friendship and meeting people is my main intention.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In general, I am attending to my long neglected personal life - the result of a dissertation, grad school 99 miles away, and working full-time. Work is chaotic and demanding so summers are my time to catch up, write curriculum, throw out old clothes, look for any misplaced bills, make gifts on the pottery wheel, hang at the pool, spend time with my family, road trips, and sign up for online dating. I would rather not discuss publicly too much of my life as it may impact my professional life. Send me note if want to know more.

Since the hamster died from my leftovers, cooking by myself offers diminishing returns. However, I will slice, wash, peal, and mix anything, I will get the beer, tell dirty jokes, and clean the pans -- but I probably should not be left unattended when the burner is on - just kidding about the hamster.

I am casual about eating out; I love good food but don’t want to dress to the nines to eat it.
