I'm a farm-raised guy who moved to Boston for grad school and now has stuck around. I just finished grad school (thank god) and now moved to East Boston. I spend a lot of my free time with friends, reading, knitting, or cooking. I love being around people who enjoy having conversations over dinner, a drink, or just an afternoon cup of coffee/tea. Friends are like family to me. I'd love to expand my group...
I am intellectual, passionate, and creative.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm taking an interesting path toward my goals and dreams (I hope). My background is in science. Somehow through an act of serendipity I fell into teaching.
When I'm not working my new job...I'm cooking and entertaining people at my apartment, playing the piano, knitting, or reading a book.
I’m really good at
Analyzing anything. Playing devil's advocate. Scheming. Thinking
about how to balance creativity with my life. Planning the future.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. I crack sarcastic jokes. One of my friends describes me as having "biting humor, biting". Life's too short not to have some levity, right?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, especially magazines. On my coffee table right now there are issues of The Atlantic.
I read a lot of memoir and nonfiction. I enjoy a well written novel with characters I relate to. Some of my favorites are Sula, The Great Gatsby, The Historian, The Bonesetter's Daughter, and Steinbeck to name a few. I read a lot of books about finance, cultural issues, and the education system (The Shame of the Nation is great), too.
I love independent movies. Watch a lot of Spanish films, too. My favorite director by far is Almodovar--can't wait for his movies to come out.
I love eating, cooking, and entertaining. The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is sushi. Spicy food always tops the list.
The six things I could never do without
My computer (Mac's are the best).
My friends (and I consider them my family).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life's existence...I think too much sometimes--if that's even
On a typical Friday night I am
...going out for dinner or drinks. Followed by a film, book, or
hanging with friends.
...or maybe going to work happy hour and passing out early. Then
heading on some adventure the next morning.
