Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would like to be a leader of a space cult but teaching high
school is a close second. I identify with anarchism, punk, and diy
but spend my free time going on a hike or in my garden. I'm kinda a
nerd, read a lot, cook, play board games,ride my bike everywhere,
and travel every summer somewhere far away.
I'm from Cincinnati but spent some time in SE Ohio which is one of
my favorite spots, moved to DC for a bit and now California has
been my home for the last 7 and some years.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to have new experiences, not get boring or bored, meet
good folks that are challenging and trustworthy, and get over my
hang ups. Those consist of but are not limited to 3 pronged forks,
occasionally braids (in my own hair), raw tomatoes, the cops, pop
punk, dried fruit, being a jerk for no reason, metallica after and
justice for all, and jazz.
I'm still trying to make the world better although I realize that
struggle is local and limited. I get a rush from the disruption of
business as normal even if it can be counter productive.
Finding new costumes for the costume closet. Dancing.
Feeling the pull of live fast die young while simultaneously being
a role model for young folks.
Should "Legalize It" be protected political speech in a high school
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm proud of my work as a teacher. I have great relationships with
my kids and they learn a ton. I'm pretty current on world affairs
and economics (since that's what I teach) and if you want to learn,
I can talk about it forever but usually don't. My post apocalypse
garden is doing quite well and I've learned a lot about growing
food and native plants in the last couple of years. As long as the
quake doesn't burn my yard down, we've got collards for days.
I'm good at staying up late and getting to work ready to go the

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a long hair and a weirdo (but in an amusing way). I have my
shit together but sometimes am a little rough around the edges. I
really enjoy big buggy eyed sunglasses but have a habit of breaking
them (my real glasses are starting to interfere with this
enjoyment). I'm an extrovert and get paid to talk for a living.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I go to a lot of shows, mostly of the punk and metal variety but
will support my friends regardless of genre. Somehow the whole 90s
indie thing passed me by. I prefer my music slow and dark or fast
and loud. I also listen to a lot of music that has no words but
creeps under my skin. I could list a whole bunch of bands but it
doesn't matter that much and you can message me if you are

Creating a for fun summer reading list for my students is way
harder than it seems. Next challenge...bands they should know. It
may be even more challenging.
I'm vegan and a decent cook. It's a personal choice and I'm not
judgmental about it. that said, the food industry is gross and it
is important to at least be critical and reflective on how we grow
food and what we put in our bodies. I've been trying to perfect
thai coconut milk soup. I made some wild mushroom stuffing recently
and have a soft spot for cincinnati style chili. I don't really
care what others eat but I enjoy cooking food with people. I prefer
food to be a community event and love when I come home and someone
else has made something or offers to cook together.

I'm looking for fun dates. I don't have a lot of expectations and
am not hiding anything. I'm upfront about my needs, what I can
give, and how I live. If you are into kink, that is a plus for me.
It isn't a deal breaker but I'm looking to get outside of my
comfort zones, learn and teach.
I am typically non monogamous and prefer open relationships. Dates
are fun in and of themselves. I'm not 'searching' for anything in
