My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I laugh, I sing, I frolic. I engage total strangers in conversation. I have cerebral palsy. I perform random acts of computer-related kindness. I introduce young people to music made before I was born. I'm mostly here to make connections in the cities I will be visiting. Currently the first up is Moscow!

Things You Will Not Have To Worry About If You Meet Me

1. You can touch me! I will not shatter like glass if hugged. I promise.

2. I can leave my house! I use a wheelchair, but I can stand if I have something to hold on to, so it's possible for me to transfer and sit normally in a car.

3. I have sensation ("feelings") everywhere! I'm not paralyzed in the common understanding of the word. Feel free to ask if you're curious about specifics.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm beginning to learn Norwegian. I will be visiting Russia, and probably Brazil, pretty soon. Both are long stories that I'll be happy to tell if you're interested.

I'm working as an online English tutor.

I've had some health issues, but they haven't stopped me from teaching people every chance I get, whether it's history (what I was studying), or the English language (what I taught to exchange students when I wasn't studying). When I'm not doing these things, I'm learning stuff, or chatting with various people online. I'm an extrovert, but I'm the kind that makes introverts comfortable.

I also sing jazz music for fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Communicating with people who are not native English speakers. Reading aloud. Speaking to large groups. Writing sonnets. Applying history to virtually any conversation topic. (Try me)
Researching random things on the internet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can do things people don't usually associate with my disability, like sing, dance, and climb rock walls. I'm like Joe from Family Guy. (Even though I'm really more a Simpsons fan.)

I get a surprising number of comments about how thick and full my hair is...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm an avid reader, more often articles than books these days, via Arts and Letters Daily and Longform. My favorite work of literature is Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov. I also like reading scifi, and just finished reading Embassytown...highly recommended.

I'll watch pretty much anything from movie musicals like Fiddler On The Roof to classic thrillers like M.

I love standup comedy, especially Louis CK and Patton Oswalt.

I love classical music, especially Baroque composers like Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel. I also like jazz and standards vocalists like Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. I enjoy listening to most anything: I have favorite artists for most any genre, ranging from Agregados Familia Do Rap to Nic Jones.

My favorite foods are sushi and New England clam chowder.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer, filtered or bottled water, my bed, (orthopedic AND extra-comfortable, not big on camping) lounge pants, down jackets, and a food source of some kind. I think that covers it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have an intense desire to learn about other cultures, particularly Scandinavian (long story), and think deeply about cultural attitudes and ways of living. I think about what it would be like to live in different places and meet my overseas friends in person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably talking to someone from another time zone, or practicing a song, or posting on my favorite website, MetaFilter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My life here is very, very hard, I'm not happy with where I live, and I have more friends outside the US than in it. I see myself living abroad in a few years.
