My self-summary
I rescue orphaned puppy dogs and teach them how to do data processing and basic customer service stuff. Sometimes it's hard being the boss, but my associates definitely appreciate the leg up on euthanasia.
What I’m doing with my life
OK. Here's the real deal. (presented Downton Abbey style)

Lord Grantham: "So Mr. curbs10009, I'm most skeptical my daughter would be inclined to date a common exploiter of the canine masses. Most likely, she would much prefer a chauffeur.

curbs10009: "Lord Grantham, my words were merely meant to convey a whimsical sensibility. Your daughter's appreciation of such hypothetical satire is one of her finest attributes. In fact she convinced PBS to make a series about some people you probably know."

LG: "Indeed, throughout her youth she has been known to exalt in spirited jest. Creative type, are you? hmmmph So how do you pay the rent tribute?"

curbs: "Your lordship, I have the good fortune to be in the employ of King de Blasio. I use iPads to teach nonverbal kids how to communicate. I also teach other teachers how to do the same."

LG: "It was rumored to me that teachers can only afford to sleep on futons in Bushwick Abbey in railroad apartments with 5 roommates?"

curbs: "Sir, I appreciate your concern, but I assure you that I reside in splendorous solitude in the East Village, well steeled away from the uncouth taint of hipster roommates."

Usually I'm not this obtuse, but sometimes a little weirdness is a good filter. Abstract: I'm an autism intervention teacher, occasionally I freelance as a photojournalist. Here's my last project:
I’m really good at
Watching like nobody's dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6'5". Sometimes people remark upon my height. This usually elicits one of several stock retorts:

1. The size of my soul is immeasurable.
2. I'm really 5'4" but my legs are wooden and it's gonna rain.
3. Yeah, I keep getting bigger. (intellectually)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Live shows. My favorite venues are tucked away jazz spots with more musicians than audience members.
Here's me playing an old school jazz song on guitar:
Books: Mostly narrative nonfiction. Fascinated with social histories, particularly ones told in the first person. My favorite genre is well edited oral history with awesome pictures.

Food: Yes
The six things I could never do without
OK with being naked in the wilderness , and occasionally indulge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to trick kids into thinking they're having fun when they're actually learning something.

How to take candid, artistic photos without being an obnoxious jerk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to pick up women at the MOMA.
(It's real easy but when the alarm goes off they make you put the statue back)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Lionel Richie is my dad (spiritually)
You should message me if
You're a kind, intelligent woman with an easy smile who loves NYC.
You'd like to meet up.
