I teach ESL online at the moment. I've got an ESL certificate and I'm going to try to become a teacher at a college or highschool but so far that hasn't happened so I'm just living my life.
I like metal music, beer and red wine, martial arts and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (I'm a brown belt and have been doing it since 1996), cats, ethnic food, hiking and spending time in nature, watching movies and hanging out with real people who don't put on disguises.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach ESL online to Korean people for now but my goal is to
become a full time ESL teacher at a good college or high school and
spend the rest of my time training in martial arts and hanging out
with people who are cool (YOU??). Nevertheless, I'm still in
transition so if you're looking to settle down then I'm probably
not your type as that is not my intention right now. However, that
certainly does not mean I am just looking for a quick fling or that
I am not interested in a serious relationship by any means.
As far as background and education are concerned, I got my B.A. in
Philosophy at Bard and got my Masters in English about 3 years ago.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, writing and anything to do with English,
randomly reciting movie quotes, competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
and Submission Grappling tournaments and martial arts and holding
my liquor haha. I haven't picked up the guitar in a while but I'm
pretty good at that as well and played for 7 years and was even in
a band for a short while.
I'm also good at wishing I was a character in Dazed and Confused.

As far as music goes I mainly like metal, punk, and a lot of other

The six things I could never do without
Not sure, let me think about it more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably wanting to do something cooler than what I'm actually doing haha, but it probably involves alcohol.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I can be shy at times.
You should message me if
You have a good sense of humor, are patient, open minded and interested in dating a nice guy who isn't like all the others.
You also must be accepting of the fact that my life path and employment are in flux and yeah, I often like brunettes and latin women with athletic builds but what I truly care about is personality.
