My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nothing I could write in this box could come close to summarizing me, but I'll try! I'm a storyteller, an optimist, a skeptical romantic, a believer in the power of a solid persuasive essay, an educator/writer who has a low tolerance for rigid thinking and/or willful ignorance, and a pragmatic dreamer who believes that change is possible - but not necessarily comfortable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an educator turned freelance writer who relocated to Chicago in April 2013, and is building a freelance writing business one assignment at a time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the big picture and motivating people to let go of fear and follow their dreams!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading and usually have at least three books going at a time:

August 2015
Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCallum
Trains and Lovers by Alexander McCall Smith

My favorite movies are Heat, The Big Lebowski, The Departed, Sucker Punch, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I listen to all kinds of music, but my all-time favorite group is Dream Theater. Currently, I'm listening to Gareth Laffely's album "Sky Before the Storm" and a mix of Niia, Toril and Moi, Naxxos, The Smiths, The Rippingtons, Bruno Mars, Bastille, Claire McGuire, Jessie Ware, Nell Bryden, Enigma, One Republic, Ed Sheeran, Jesse Ware, Clean Bandit, Lowen & Navarro, and HAIM.

I don't own a television, but I like Luther, The Wire, Fringe, Scandal, The Mind of a Chef, The Daily Show, Suits, The West Wing, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Black Mirror and Arrow.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, books, my iPhone, the Duolingo app, lingerie, and Uniball Signo RT 0.38 gel pens.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people find it so hard to simply be kind to one another, and why more people don't question information they're given.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a living, breathing paradox.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking to meet interesting people, engage in lively conversations, and make new friends.

You understand what it means to actually be polyamorous.

You laugh easily and can make me laugh.

You sport scruff and/or have a British, Irish or Scottish accent (but if you have both...holy moly! And while a fake accent might pass muster, fake scruff won't...just saying)

You get why the gun battle outside of the bank in Heat is the best 30-minutes in film history.

You can quote lines from The Big Lebowski.

You believe that "You must be the change you want to see in the world."

You have a view of the world that is off-beat or unconventional and you're looking for someone who "gets it."

You don't assume that meeting up with someone is an invitation to have sex and, as a result, can begin a conversation with something other than, "So, what kind of sex do you like?" Seriously, gentlemen. Seriously.
