Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a high school science teacher. I received a bachelors in
Wildlife and Fisheries and a Masters in Science Education from UT
Knoxville. I really enjoy teaching. I am very fortunate to have a
job that I like! I like listening to all types of music. I have a
vinyl record collection that includes over 200 albums. Recently, I
have started hiking a lot. It’s awesome to see and experience
nature. It would be nice to have someone to hike with and share
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have been a high school science teacher for the past 14 years. It
can be both challenging and stressful at times. But overall it is a
very fulfilling job. I always look forward to going to work when I
wake up in the morning. I am not making this up!
Watching movies, going to see live bands (all types), hiking, going
out to eat at new places, and fishing are just a few of the
activities I like to do to have fun. I am always willing to try
different things. Also, I enjoy spending time with my friends on
the weekends. I am very fortunate to have some great friends. In
addition, one thing that I want to do more in the future is travel.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I enjoy cooking and I am really good at making southern staples.
For example, I make both a killer meat loaf and tater salad. And
believe it or not I am good at eating. I will try anything. Because
of this I am very fortunate that I only weigh about 160 pounds! In
addition, I am a really good at having conversations with people
and being a good listener.

It’s kind of weird but people who are not from this area believe
that I have a fairly decent southern accent. On the other hand,
people from here are always asking me where am I from because they
cannot figure out my accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have always enjoyed science fiction and horror when it has come
to books and movies. But I definitely enjoy movies and books
outside that genre. My favorite authors include: Stephen King
(especially early works), Clive Barker (also early works), John
Steinbeck, T.R. Pearson, and Jonathon Kozol. Some of my favorite
movies include: Aliens, Forbidden Planet, Days of Wine and Roses,
Planet Earth series, and Stagecoach. I enjoy all types of music but
I especially like alternative music ( I hate using that
description). I really like vinyl albums but I do have a lot of CDs
and downloads. Some of my favorite bands include: The Beatles, The
Kinks, The Pixies, The Clash, Devo, and The Police. I really like
to see both local band and big name bands live. I try to see live
music at least a couple of times a month. Once again I like to eat.
I will try anything. But one of my favorites is any kind of
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good friends make life awesome.
2. Good Music – I need it every day
3. Good Food
4. Good conversation – enough said
6. Water of course!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This a tough question. It really just depends for me. Sometimes it
is work. This is especially true when I am driving to work. But I
guess most of the time it is just random stuff like: music, am I
going meet someone new, what am I going have for dinner tonight,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends. Seeing a live band, catching a movie,
and/or going to a restaurant or a club. But sometimes I just hang
out at home and watch a movie or read.
