Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to DC what seems like an eternity ago from Upstate NY. For
those unfamiliar, we have two seasons up there: winter and
construction. I've been a high school teacher my entire
post-college life. I like to work out and I enjoy outdoor
activities (running and biking being my favorites). I speak fluent
sarcasm. I'm genuine. I'm a terrible cook but a gifted eater. I
also apparently enjoy filling in boxes that tell people about me. I
have also decided that I am not important enough to need to have my
phone out and on in front of me at the gym, at a bar, or at dinner.
I like to give my attention to the people I am with.
I have also never taken a picture of myself with my phone,
shirtless, in the bathroom mirror.
Recently, my sister accompanied me to a play at the school where I
teach. One my students approached me, and after being introduced to
her, asked my sister if the sarcasm ran in the family.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been teaching for 14 years and I love it. I also work out just
about every day. Not because I'm training for anything. I used to
run competitively, but my shins don't really like that anymore. Now
I just stay fit because I feel good and I can defeat all of my
students in feats of strength.
In 2012 I spent a month in Tanzania. I saw a rhino. I volunteered
at an orphanage with some wonderful, beautiful children. Then I
climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the humor in just about every situation. And math. I've
also been called "the human GPS" by my friends.

Apparently my eyes are very, very blue. Oh, and sarcasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Of the books that I have read in my life, three have completely
changed the way I think about things I already knew a lot about (or
at least, thought I did): Zero, Moneyball, and Blink. I enjoy that
effect. The stack of books currently on my nightstand is rather
I have a wide interest of music tastes. Some recent concerts
include: OAR, Carbon Leaf, The Offspring, Common, and Fitz and the
Movies: Too many to name. I love movies. And I took a couple of
film classes in college so I do a great job of pretending to know
more about movies, er, film, then I actually do.
And food. I love trying new food, and there's really nothing I
won't eat. I don't handle very spicy food very well.
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.
No one man should have all that power.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at a happy hour with friends or collapsing on the couch with
Netflix. It really all depends on the week. It's funny, after a
week of teaching I often find myself "really needing a drink" for

I loved the movie "Where the Heart Is"

heart is through my funny bone. Also my rib cage.
