After reading many a profile, I've noticed that there is a lot of emphasis placed on knowing when to use the appropriate homophone, so I feel compelled to let you know that I know the difference between your and you're, not to mention yore. I know the rest, too, which makes me a big hit at parties.
I'm more of a Peter Walsh than a Richard Dalloway.
I'm an over-educated guy who went to some New England schools. I have two Ivy League degrees, so if you like smart guys, I could probably introduce you to some.
I'm from all over the country and travel all over the world. Worldly possessions make me restless, so I try not to grow attached to them.
During the day (and less frequently at night) I work for a much-beloved educational publisher that shall remain nameless. You might know us for a big, red dog with whom we're associated. Basically, I create stuff for the Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too.
Trying to be a good human being who avoids wasting the world's resources and taking advantage of others. Reliving my decade of teaching to help build adaptive online education options for kids in prisons and other less-than-desirable circumstances. Riding the A train, curating the art collection of my family (three members of my immediate family are working artists; the other three pretend to be). Helping my mom with public art projects and installations. Talking about different strains of hops and when to add them to the wort.
Listening to this song on repeat in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4xZRGNQQrQ
Urban hiking from Crown Heights to Manhattan and back again while creating new ways to rank the bridges.
Camping. I'm an Eagle Scout, though I'm sending my medal back. Bunch of bigots, they are.
Making homemade barley pops and oat sodas.

The fact that no one has ever fallen from the ramp at the Guggenheim.
I can't believe it took me so long to realize Saul Goodman is a play on "it's all good, man."
I can tie survival/rescue knots, but I still tie my shoes using the bunny ears method.
I may have allowed a large number of people to believe I was half Inuit a few years back.
