My self-summary
I've come to the conclusion that I'm rather terrible at writing these things (I know -- we all say it). Fortunately, I found a template for a "quality profile," which I blatantly stole in my attempt to woo my fellow relationship seekers:

Hobbies (in no particular order): Sporting events, museums, Netflix Nights, poker, improvisation, comedy clubs, incessantly quoting movies (warning: a date with me will likely yield a horrible Inigo Montoya impression)

Aspirations: Travel the world, make people laugh on a daily basis, learn how to play the guitar and/or keyboard

Work/life balance: I am a Director of International Programs/ESL for a local college. I also perform and teach improv comedy on the side. I'm a firm believer that work stays at work and should remain separate from quality (insert your name here) time.

Quirks/traits friends admire: A good friend of mine recently designated me as the "go-to pick-me-up" guy. (In other words, I always strive to lighten the mood in funky situations). I'm also quite handy in Quizzo, as my knowledge of useless trivia is rather (for better or worse) extensive.

Cute faults: As much as I hate to admit it, I’m consistently in the running for the unofficial title of “Klutz of the Year.”

Likes (again, in no particular order):Traveling to as many places as possible (though I have a ways to go), my iPhone, laugh-'til-you-can't-breathe moments, John Candy movies, spicy food, classic 80s cartoons, rushing to IMDB to prove that [insert actor here] was in [that movie], making up my own words (see the aforementioned “Alanis-esque”)

Dislikes: Intolerant people and onions. That about sums it up.

My Match:
- Someone who is also looking for a long-term committed relationship
- A combination of old soul/goofball-at-heart
- A partner who is willing to discuss the sociocultural impact of The Karate Kid (and is willing to pretend the Jackie Chan version never happened).
- Someone ready for a spontaneous road trip on a moment's notice
- Someone who tolerates my overuse of parenthesis.
- A partner who enjoys the outdoors, the arts, and maybe the occasional sporting event...but sometimes just loves having a "night in."
What I’m doing with my life
In general: Working, performing improv, while wondering if Firefox will ever actually recognize the word "improv". (It is a word, Mozilla).
I’m really good at
Pac-Man (All modesty aside...ghosts don't stand a chance).
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, I'm guessing the blue eyes. On a non-physical level, I think most people see me as an affable, funny guy. I'm usually smiling/laughing on a pretty consistent basis.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a huge fan of biographies, my favorite being Steve Martin's "Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life."

Movies: Princess Bride, Karate Kid, Rocky I-IV, American Beauty. If I could unearth one movie from the vault, it would be the hilariously bad employee training video from the time I worked at Toys R Us when I was 16 years old.

Shows: If everyone talks about it on Facebook/Twitter, chances are I haven't seen it (see: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Walking Dead).

Music: I tend to go through phases with my music preferences. My current band du jour: The National.

Food: All
The six things I could never do without
1.) Family/friends (natch)
2.) Performing
3.) iGadgetry
4.) GPS (I admittedly lack that whole "good sense of direction" thing)
5.) The word "awesome"
6.) My Keurig (i.e., an increasingly expensive investment into my coffee addiction)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm generally plotting my next vacation and/or meal (not necessarily in that order).
On a typical Friday night I am
There's not really a typical Friday for me. I might be performing, going to a comedy club or museum with friends, grabbing dinner with family, or watching god-awful 80s movies on Netflix ("No Retreat, No Surrender", anyone?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Regrettably, I can never undo the first concert I ever attended.

I've already said too much.
You should message me if
...you read my profile and say to yourself, "Hey, I should message that guy!"
