My self-summary
I'm a native Chicagoan who has lived away since high school and returned recently for work. I'm still in the phase of making new friends in a new(ish) city. I work in education and alternatively love it and hate it, which seems pretty normal for the profession.

My friends would say that I'm kind, honest, loyal, occasionally hard-headed and far too amused by puns for their liking. They would also say--lately--that I've been working way too hard and I am taking active steps to reset that balance, which is part of what led me here to OKC.

I used to be a night owl, but since living and teaching in Namibia, I've converted to being an early bird. I love to be up and running at daybreak, though admittedly that is much later in the winter than now.

I have a wide array of interests -- reading, movies, theatre, running, looking at real estate on Zillow, pondering doing a triathlon, travel, hiking.
What I’m doing with my life

I’m really good at
Excel. It's sad, but true. I teach everyone I work with Excel tricks.
Boggle.
Backrubs.
Crockpot cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall.
Despite years of negative reinforcement, I still can't help dropping puns into the conversation at inconvenient times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read, and usually have a couple of books going at any one time, one nonfiction and one fiction. I tend to like nonfiction history, sociology, economics, etc such as Guns, Germs and Steel or Freakonomics. For fiction, I like the occasional trashy thriller (Richard North Patterson), contemporary novels (Tom Perotta, Jeffrey Eugenides), and fantasy (Harry Potter). UPDATE: Currently I'm reading Thinking Fast and Slow, and just finished an interesting and depressing account of Detroit.

TV watching is very sporadic, and usually several seasons behind the times on Netflix. I'm currently watching the third season of Sons of Anarchy, which is more violent than I'd usually watch but I'm enjoying it.

I am most definitely not a foodie, though I love good ethnic food. If you like going to Devon for Indian, Broadway for Ethiopian, Argyle for Vietnamese sounds like fun, so do I. But I'm not so much into the whole gastropub movement. I like a burger and fries (or tots) at my pub...

On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes, recovering from a long week at work with a beer and a movie at home. Other times, hanging out with friends for a few drinks after work, seeing a movie, or occasionally heading to a charity event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have occasionally spent several hours Saturday morning watching Netflix on my cellphone in bed because I'm too lazy to move to the other room.
