My self-summary
Adventurous, playful, sometimes funny, and often ebullient, it's best to get to know me in person.

I've done a lot of traveling, and I look forward to more. Though good company is more important to me than location, some of my favorite spots include Nepal, Iceland, Berlin, Barcelona, Provence, the Adirondacks, and the Mediterranean Sea.

Aside from travel, I'm a fan of laughter, food, the outdoors, biking, kayaking, dancing, ping pong, reading, writing, photography, fireflies, lakes, hammocks, The Moth, and random acts of kindness.
What I’m doing with my life
Formerly a teacher for ten years, I'm now a full-time student in a creative nonfiction MFA program, so I'm reading and writing away. I also work part-time as an ESL coordinator in a high school.

On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical Friday night, but I like to get dinner with a friend or two, and in the warmer months, I may be en route to a trip in the great outdoors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently fell into the gap between the subway and the platform.

This is certainly not private, but there's no option for this in OkCupid's pull-down menu: Jewish by birth, I'm a non-practicing, secular Jew. I grew up with a Lutheran father and Jewish mother. As for religion, I'd say I'm agnostic.
