My self-summary
Grew up in Boston, spent the past eight years in Ohio in graduate school and am now back in Boston teaching high school.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach Latin and Greek at a school in Boston.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a bigger, sometimes rather clumsy guy (I get a little more grace each year). I have what I would like to think is a certain sartorial flair. And when I start talking you can certainly tell where I'm from.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
School keeps me busy, but lately I've been reading a lot of history, especially American history. Trying to read in my field if I can. Books that have stayed with me over the years include the Odyssey, Pale Fire, Notes from the Underground, Horace's Satires and Odes, Letters to a Young Poet, Game of Thrones, Dante's Commedia, Beowulf, the Saga of King Hrolf Kraki, the Aeneid, Sallust, Excellent Cadavers, the Roman Revolution, Gone Baby Gone and on and on....

Music: Bruce Springsteen. Then there's Zeppelin, Phoenix, the Stones, Arcade Fire, Bowie, the National, random opera and classical, BRMC, MGMT, Twilight Singers, and too many more to name. And Neil Diamond.

Movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, Punch Drunk Love, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Gladiator, LOTR Trilogy, Empire Strikes Back, Inception, Casino, The Barbarian Invasions,

TV: Battlestar, Fringe, the Wire, Rome, The Thick of It, Law and Order, Law and Order: UK, 30 Rock, The Soup, Archer, The Sopranos, The Shield, Justified, Last Week Tonight
The six things I could never do without
Music (Ipod or whatever. I need my soundtrack!)
Books
Friends
Family
Good Beer
Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Language and how it affects our perceptions and relationships, often without notice.

Politics, even though it frustrates me and often depresses me.

Wishing I knew more philosophy than just a few dialogues of Plato. Also wishing I was more than just a humanist-manque.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately just decompressing and relaxing after a week at school.
