A work in progress...
What I’m doing with my life
I have spent my career working in the field of education, which has
taken me from a classroom in the South Bronx to a sailboat
circumnavigating the globe to my current educational start-up
I strive for balance so when I am not educating, I like pursuing
sports that end in -ing: sailing, skiing, stand-up paddleboarding,
snowshoeing, fly fishing, running, and when I get the chance,
I’m really good at
I pride myself in my parallel parking. My family has a Christmas
tradition of competitive gift wrapping, so in that I have honed my
creative craft. I am also good at listening to people as well as
bird calls. My knot tying abilities aren't too shabby either.
The first things people usually notice about me
That my reserve turns to irreverent humor once I get warmed up.

The six things I could never do without
(In no particular order)
* Salt Water
* My Family
* Diet Coke
* My Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life and the significance (if any) to seeming
On a typical Friday night I am
I am on the Bay sailing a beer can race.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wear my foul weather gear with nothing underneath to rinse off
the salt water under the fresh water of the shower.
You should message me if
...you enjoy high-brow discussions of low-brow topics, are
susceptible to Wanderlust, find solace in salt water, find awe in
bioluminescence, or do not have a profile photo of you showing off
your physique or posing in front of a car.
