Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a strong desire to connect with people. I am a teacher and
enjoy having meaningful conversations and connecting with my
students. It has been some time since I have been able to connect
with an adult beyond the scope of work or casual acquaintances. I
am laid back and easy going. I enjoy intellectual conversation and
would love to just go get a coffee or a beer and get to know
I have two sons, ages 5 and 7. They are brilliant and rambunctious
and they mean the world to me. I am not looking for someone to be
involved in their live's, but if you have kids of similar age(s) we
could surely have a play date someday :-)
I play guitar and I am passionate about music. I love most all
kinds of music but have a slight distaste for some. I am an avid
NPR listener, but sometimes I need to tune it out and enjoy my own
life instead of worry about the sometimes frustrating state of our
world. I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, disc golf, and anything that
gets me out into the woods. I love trees and have been known to hug
them :-) Fall and winter are my favorite seasons as I absolutely
love cuddling up on the couch to get warm and watching a flick or
reading National Geographic. My other passions are science, math
and technology, but I usually get enough of all that at work
(except science, I can't get enough of that).
I believe in coincidence and I know that timing is important. In
the past I think I have missed a lot of moments that I let pass me
by, and I am tired of letting that happen. If you feel inspired in
any way, go with it and do what you want.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am happy to be teaching still! I am in a unique position where I
have lots of freedom and responsibility. I enjoy the challenges I
face each day, and marvel at the accomplishments of my students and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Foot rubs, shoulder rubs, splitting wood, making fires, playing
guitar, playing disc golf, math, sudoku, mucking around with
software and gadgets, and bicycling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love most books by Vonnegut, favorite is Slapstick or
Lonesome No More. Siddhartha also a favorite b/c it's short :-)
Celestine Prophecy, Ishmael, Einstein's papers on Relativity and
anything by Richard Feynman.
Movies: Fifth Element, Manhattan, Monty Python's Meaning of Life,
High Fidelity, Hitchhiker's Guide (also a fan of the books),
Eternal Sunshine, Wes Anderson films (fave is The Royal
Tenenbaums), Charlie Kaufman films (Adaptation) and Magnolia.
Music: Weezer, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Jack Johnson, I enjoy most
indie rock, funk or punk with a good beat, folk that tells a good
story, or jazz that gets me lost in a moment. Country rarely
excites me, but it is fun to perform.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical Friday night in my life... Our staff meetings
are fun, but those happen on Wednesday. If I could have a regular
Friday night thing I would go play darts and pool with good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
