My self-summary
When I'm not developing the brains of adolescents, cultivating life-long leaners, and influencing the future of our society as a high school English teacher, I'm usually volunteering for the Make A Wish Foundation to help facilitate the dying wishes of terminally ill children...OK, the last part's not entirely true...but I did tear up when I heard the story about Bat Kid. And the teaching thing's legit.

Laughter is a must for me. I can find the humor in almost anything and lean toward the sarcastic side. Loyalty runs deep in me. I have known all of my best friends for over twenty years and have been the best man in four weddings (As they say "always a groomsman...").
What I’m doing with my life
Because I’ve been blessed with a good life and great friends, I’ve been driven to “pay it forward” by making a difference in the world, so I chose teaching as a career. I am a high school English teacher in an inner-city school, and I love I working with kids and being a positive role model to those who really need one.

One of my greatest passions is traveling. Recently, I’ve been to the Greek islands, Thailand, Iceland, and the Grand Caymans. I’m looking for that special someone who shares my sense of adventure.
I’m really good at
Organizing trips and planning vacations
The first things people usually notice about me
I look kinda like Stu from the Hangover...just need that Mike Tyson face tattoo
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Game of Thrones series, As I Lay Dying, The Great Gatsby, Freakonomics, Blink, Outliers, Tipping Point

Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Braveheart, A Few Good Men, Something About Mary, Meet the Parents,

Music: U2, The Killers, Pink Floyd, Counting Crows

Food: Anything edible...and some things that really aren't
The six things I could never do without
1) Friends/Family
2) Laughter
3) Music
4) My computer
5) Books
6) Dwarf tossing...just wanted to make sure you weren't zoning out
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New restaurants, activities, and travel destinations
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying a new restaurant (usually one that calls green beans "haircot verts," cheese "fromage," and/or donunts "bombolini"), having a drink with friends, or watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like wine tasting, but I chose Two-Buck-Chuck as the best wine in a blind taste test. (God only knows how much money that saves me every year).
You should message me if
You're intelligent, easy going, and you have a good heart and a good sense of humor.
