Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an educational consultant. The moments with my students are the
best of my day. Of all the people in the world who know me
well--and there are many--none know me better. I am self-actualized
in their presence, aware of my good fortune to be in a more
exclusive club than the one percenters: I am one of the very few
who do exactly what they love most with their life.
I am a writer. I take two hours each day to build upon the tools I
acquired at the MFA program in fiction at Sarah Lawrence College,
where I was blessed to learn from some of my literary heroes. While
I hope to be a smashing success someday, I firmly believe that art
and commerce are at war. And so, I take my endeavor seriously in
the sense that I produce art for art's sake, not for the sake of my
building my ego, status, or bank account. The creative process is
still sacred to me, and I hope that at the end of my journey, I
will be able to say the same.
I am a musician, and I play out on the town frequently, though with
a diminished passion from years ago. There are only so many hours
in a day or week to which I can devote myself to an art form of
waning importance to me. Still, I enjoy performing and
collaborating with strong minds and skilled players, but more as a
hobby than anything else.
I am a family man, in the sense that, over my twenty nine years, I
have fallen repeatedly to the common folly of thinking that
anything in life besides family will remain permanent. I am in
regular contact with my home base. Though it is far from here, I
hold it close in my thoughts.
I am a friend to many, but increasingly, I am searching for that
one truest friend. Hence, I am here.
