My self-summary
I'm a creative, intelligent, grounded guy.

I "think" I have a sense of humor, although, in this context, probably not so much. I greatly appreciate a sense of humor, though, and if someone can make me laugh, that is a very attractive quality.

I can be both shy and socially outgoing. I find value in being both. I can carry on a conversation with practically anyone. In general, I'm a very curious and engaged listener.

I often think of myself as Howdy Doody on the outside and David Lynch on the inside. By that, I don't mean that I am "a David Lynch film" on the inside, just David Lynch. Is that clear?

I'm polite and respectful--my momma raised me well. And I expect the same in others.

Writing this much has been torture so I'm going to stop.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in the theatre ("Oh, God," you're probably thinking) and I'm a professor at a university.

Seriously, about the theatre thing, it is a big part of my life, but I prefer my drama to be on-stage. And, fortunately, my job requires me to be interested in a variety of things so it doesn't take much to arouse my curiosity. :)
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
are projections.

(I stole that from someone else's profile because I love it and it's true.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hands down, my favorite movie is LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. Other favs off the top of my head are PAN'S LABYRINTH, A SINGLE MAN, ATONEMENT, VOLVER, WHAT'S UP DOC, AMELIE, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, BEGINNERS.

I read a lot of plays...yeah. I also read a lot of non-fiction usually related to plays I'm working on (histories, biographies, etc.).

I like a variety of styles and am always grateful for suggestions of new artists. I lean towards alternative, folk, world, electronica.

I don't watch a lot of tv. I enjoy it, I just don't watch a lot of it. MODERN FAMILY, BREAKING BAD, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK are my recent favorites.

On the good old fashioned radio, I love Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, This American Life, All Songs, TED, On Being, All Songs. I guess this makes me a public radio dork.

As for food, I'll eat anything. I have a ragging sweet tooth, though.
The six things I could never do without
1. Dessert
2. Yoga
3. NPR
4. Running shoes
5. Bookstores (I realize there may be none left before long)
6. A good masseur
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want to cook once I teach myself how to cook.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating out with friends, seeing a play, film, or some cultural event around town, taking a yoga class, leaving to go out of town for the weekend. These days, I'm sometimes working, too.
