My self-summary
Hello, my name is Dan. I recently moved into the area and am looking for new people to hang out with, talk, and have some fun! Born in Israel, which makes me Jewish, but unless you are a Nazi that shouldn't offend you :P

I love doing things that are interesting, exciting, and spontaneous. My ideal date is not dinner and a movie, it is more like dinner, guitar playing in the park, going out on the town watching a poetry slam or salsa dancing, and then talking about how fun that was.

I am open to a lot of new things and perspectives. I also wear my heart on my sleeve, which is a double edged sword. People will be able to tell very easily when I like them, but also when I don't. A fan of old school romance, I have been known to do some cheezy things for girls.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am a full time History teacher in a school nearby. I also started a guitar club at the school I teach in, having the time of my life trying to show teenagers how to rock out.

My near term goals include getting a masters in History, and my life ambition is to be a college professor at a small or community college, where like Indiana Jones, I will be able to teach while exploring caves and stopping Nazis. Well, some of that will be true.
I’m really good at
Playing guitar has been a passion for me since I was a teenager. I love to play 80's metal, classic rock, folk, and some classical pieces. I also love to ride/ tour on a motorcycle during the summers, finding new places, meeting new people, and experiencing life.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I almost always have a great attitude and lots of energy. I couldn't be a good teacher without both.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read lots of Russian authors- LN Andreyev, Pushkin, Checkov, also other interesting authors like Kafka, Pirsig, Poe, Wells, and Ellison appeal to me.

Middle eastern food is my favorite, and I will end up taking you to that and Sushi if we become friends.

Musically I wouldn't be able to categorize too well- some groups I like include Muse, Mike Oldfield, Megadeth, Ozzy, Queensryche, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Deadmau 5, and lots more.

Favorite movies: The Fall, Shawshank Redemption, Motorcycle Diaries, The Great Debaters, Gallipoli, Blade Runner, Nikita
The six things I could never do without
Music, art, the outdoors, great beer, students to teach, and hummus.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Curriculum for class and current world issues. I am a news junkie, so I need my morning NPR fix along with my coffee. Also, I am always coming up with new ideas for music for my guitar club students to rock on with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out in Czech town, perhaps watching a local show, hanging out with a friend or two, or relaxing with a nice beverage after the long work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My favorite color is green.
You should message me if
you are interested in talking to, hanging out with, or just meeting someone who is open, fun loving, driven, loves animals, and is adventurous :)
