I'm a really easy going person. I get along really well with other
people, so long as they aren't fake and they have a sense of humor.
Personally, I take very little seriously. Everything is funny if
you look at it the right way. I've traveled extensively and spent
close to five years living abroad. Typically, I feel comfortable in
any situation. I love books, sports, movies, music and games. I
mean board games and bar games, not relationship games. I don't
What I’m doing with my life
I teach third grade at an Expeditionary Learning school in Gallup,
NM. I also take graduate level education classes. I wouldn't mind
writing the next great American novel, but who has the time.
I’m really good at
I'd say I'm an intelligent person who gets along well with others.
I am a spectacular cook (not to brag too much) and I think I have a
good sense of humor. I am definitely good at laughing, usually at

I don't mind my tongue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - anything by Vonnegut, Bukowski, or Hunter Thomson. I also
like the sci-fi greats, Hebert, Clarke, Dick (he-he) and Asimov. I
have a soft spot for fantasy, so Tolkein and Martin. I enjoy Chuck
Palahniuk. My favorite might be Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Also, I
love graphic novels. The Watchmen and V for Vendetta are great, but
The Sandman is king. I used to read a lot, but the whole work and
school thing put a halt to that.
Movies - all kinds. The Room, Fight Club, Seven, The Life Aquatic,
Stranger Than Fiction, Pulp Fiction, Nightwatch, City of God,
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and hundreds of others. I
also enjoy a good, balanced documentary.
Shows - The Wire, Treme, Curb, The League, Archer, Futurama, Its
Always Sunny, Game of Thrones (a guilty pleasure), The Daily Show,
The Colbert Report, and Arrested Development (probably the smartest
tv show ever written).
Music - everything. Cake, Billie Holiday, Portishead, Marty
Robbins, Immortal Technique, Old Crow Medicine Show, Brother Ali,
Lyrics Born, DJ Shadow, Desmond Dekker, The Specials, Mumford and
Sons, The Black Keys, Bon Iver, Beethoven, MMW, MF Doom, Rap News,
and so many others.
Food - All.
The six things I could never do without
My passport, my computer, a book to read, a kitchen of some sort.
That's about it. I'm not really a thing person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now, work and school. Before that, unicorns and rainbows and
bright eyed puppies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe having a beer at the pub or catching last night's Daily Show.
I guess it depends on the Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm willing to admit it, its not private.
