Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a writer and an entry-level English teacher (college). I'm
currently finishing grad school in the midwest.
I write fiction (short stories and novels, hopefully somewhat funny
ones) and I teach creative writing.
I grew up in New York and will be visiting this winter, possibly
moving back to the area in the spring.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write, draw comics, play guitar, and teach anything from basic
college composition to creative writing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

BOOKS I read constantly. My favorite authors are JD Salinger, Tove
Jansson, and Shakespeare.
I'm currently reading Moby Dick, The Tenth of December, The Two
Towers, and The Ice Storm, among others. Clair Vaye Watkins'
Battleborn was incredible.
I'm open-minded to any genre. Top three: Jeff Rosenstock, Jonathan
Richman, and They Might Be Giants.
A lot of punk and jazz.
I've been collecting classical and musical theater records
recently. And golden age rock & roll. Like the Oneders.
All food, pretty much. Coconut curry and falafel is a decent start.
Beer and coffee are important, too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This one always stumps me, so: 6+4:
The Magic Conch Shell
The underground tunnels running below Chinatown
An eight-bit version of Dracula's castle
The Owl-Eyed Man from Gatsby's library
A sound soul
Everybody Loves Raymond the Musical
An extensive library of books and records
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The American Revolution

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This online-meeting concept is new to me. I'm happy to have a
conversation about almost anything, but literature, music, theater,
or absurd humor is a good place to start.
If we hit it off, I'd love company going to the museum. I like most
NYC museums and a small selection of NYC bars.
