My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
By day, I have a wonderful gig teaching AP Calculus (among other things) at a performing arts charter high school. By night, I am (according to my students) a super-villain! I don't have *that many* megalomaniacal tendencies... do I?

INTP, if M-B is your J-A-M. Champion speller, as I just demonstrated. Also pretty solid at grammar. I know the difference between 'your' and 'you're,' and as a special added bonus, 'yore' but only because I used to be really into nostalgia.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
These days? Summer vacation, mostly.

I just got back from a road trip to Boulder, CO. I was visiting an old high school friend who is working on his PhD. I drove because I like to pretend I'm a car guy and thus I wanted to carve up some twisty mountain roads in my new car. And I did. I may or may not have disregarded posted speed limits.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
growing a beard.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to bemoan the inevitable disappointed stares after learning someone of my height never played basketball. But now that I work at a school with no sports program, no one asks. It's glorious!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorites tend to shift around a lot, but I was recently bitten by the music bug again. I own approximately 400 physical albums and counting. Right now, I'm trying to flesh out my collection of 90's alternative rock and grunge. I'm scouring various publications' top 100 lists and online forums and taking my lists to used music stores. Got a hidden gem for me?

I have a theory that when it comes to media, one should only consume it after it has left the collective short-term memory. The reason being that hyperbole is a big thing on the internet, and the newest thing is always the best-est thing (or the worst-est thing). Better to wait for the collective to digest and analyze media to filter out the chaff and find the hidden gems. There is just too much media and not enough time to enjoy it all; I don't have time to become extremely invested and then disappointed *cough* LOST. *cough* An added bonus that spoilers don't mean anything if you're not following a particular media, because you don't know the context. Therefore, in 5 years, I can watch Game of Thrones in peace.

I love to cook, but I find it hard to cook for one person efficiently... so I would love to find someone to cook for. My best friend's wife has told me on several occasions that I will make an excellent wife for someone someday! When I cook, I crank up the tunes! There might be a little singing, air-guitaring, rapping and/or dancing... A little pre-dinner entertainment if you will.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
*gets out soapbox*

I think a lot about nerd culture, sexism, and how to become a better ambassador for geeky interests.

I'm kind of pissed off about how the (white male) community seems to think that nerd culture needs defending from "social justice warriors." There's the "fake geek girl" thing, the rise of MRAs, the backlash against anything remotely "feminist" on the internet, Gamergate, and now Reddit setting itself on fire. This kind of stuff is completely antithetical to my beliefs and my vision.

I don't understand why white men want to be victims so much. You know why other groups get "special treatment?" THE SAME REASON WHY IN MARIOKART YOU DON'T GET BLUE SHELLS AND LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU'RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG! Seriously, eff misogyny and sexism! Just writing this made got me all worked up...

*gets off soapbox*
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am an introvert who spends his week dealing with 150-ish teenagers, not to mention my coworkers, so I need some time to unwind and recharge. I try to do yoga several times per week, but that wonderful kind of relaxed yet energized feeling always seems to be even more intense on Friday. A quick shower and a short nap follow. Then, it's time for some delicious Chipotle. Steak fajita burrito with white rice, black beans, mild salsa, sour cream, cheese and guac. No Lettuce. Lettuce is the burrito-killer.

After dinner, it's off to game night! Whether it's the camaraderie of a collaborative game, the creativity of a story-telling game, the politics of a free-for-all game, the hilarity of Cards Against Humanity, or the straight up hardcore competition of Street Fighter, I'm all for it! No alcohol for me, though... the minute you start drinking is the minute you start losing, and I really don't like losing!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a heroine addiction. (See what I did there?)

I have no idea how to take a selfie. Believe me, I've tried. Every time I look at myself on the screen, I think, "I look like a doofus," and then put my phone away without snapping the picture.

I'm searching for a balance between wizard and muggle. Someone who would spend the afternoon kayaking and spend the evening playing Mario Kart. Someone who likes board games as much as Twins games. Is down with sodas and superhero movies and up for wine-tasting and theatre.
