I am exuberant. I am passionate about . . . well, everything. I
like trying new things, and I'm looking for someone to share those
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on a PhD in British Literature - currently writing my
dissertation. When school is in session I teach Business Writing.
I’m really good at
Cooking/baking. Picking the losing team and finding the perfect
beer. Enjoying both.
I'm really terrible at:
commas (but I'm working on it).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. Also, I'm tall. A recent poll of my friends reports height
and smile. So, see I was partially right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like crime shows, particularly British crime/detective shows and
shows like Community and Spy.
I listen to a handful of podcasts: news, pop culture, music.
I like most genres of music. Mostly I'm listening to bands like The
Kooks, Brand New, Morphine, Modest Mouse, Radiohead. Recently I've
been obsessed with Red Axes. There's one album by Chevelle that I
will never give up. I hate the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm willing
to compromise over the radio on road trips.
I don't often have the opportunity to read for fun but when I do
it's usually genre fiction -- scifi, mystery, or a interestingly
illustrated graphic novel. I listen to audiobooks while traveling
to and from the city.
I love baseball. I like hockey quite a bit, and I'll watch football
if that's what's happening.
The six things I could never do without
My friends and family, books, art, swimming, stimulating
conversation, snow storms/cold weather, moments of spontaneous joy.
That's more than 6.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many days until baseball season starts again. Figuring out this
whole OK Cupid thing. What is it about the Metro that makes people
crazier? Quantum mechanics. That's not true. But if you spend a lot
of time thinking about it, I'd love to hear.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking bourbon at my favorite bar, hanging out with friends,
trying to avoid crowds...looking forward to brunch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It can't be that private if I'd post it here. You'll have to get to
know me to find out.
You should message me if
If you're still reading at this point, I like your tenacity. Drop
me a line. If you like baseball, if you really do know something
about quantum mechanics, if you know absolutely nothing about
quantum mechanics, if you're looking for more than sex, if you're
willing to get to know each other a little and see where things
take us. Strong hands are a plus.
