Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the product of my family and my upbringing. They have made me
incredibly patient, understanding of almost everyone I encounter
and constantly making sure I am moving forward in life. I love the
outdoors, and took way too long to discover that I like
I sometimes listen to Ira Glass for too long and start imagining
that he is actually in the room talking to me.
I firmly belief in the concept of "#commit"; Find a goal you
believe in, work as a team and whatever the group decides, even if
you disagree on the method of getting to your end goal, you give it
all your effort.
Edit: 6/26/15 I kind of love The Onion's take on the SCOTUS ruling.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently moved back into teaching at an amazing school. I tried
managing adults for a bit, but it didn't have that rewarding
feeling that I get from being in the classroom.
Living vicariously through my brothers' adventures in the
wilderness and joining them when I can.
I seem to have dedicated the last few months to letting this beard
grow...it's getting a bit spectacular. Lately, there has been much
discussion in my head about what to do with the stupid mustache
that comes with this thing...I've been erring on the side of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing while people are watching.
Throwing my body, at speed, around obstacles. (Skiing and Mountain
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The volume of my voice and my "on-ness" during the work day. A
close friend of mine at work has imposed a volume and excitement
limit on me before 7:45am. I'm a grade A morning person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are "A Prayer for Owen Meany" and "The Time
Traveler's Wife"...that book sucks you in and just doesn't let
As for movies, I am a boy...and most anything that comes in a
trilogy is bound to entice my fancy.
Apparently, I am drawn to short lived TV shows,most of which are
created by Aaron Sorkin and Joss Whedon. TED talks and physiology
Music: Mumford and Sons, Band of Horses and Florence and the
Machine are getting some pretty heavy play lately.
Anything I can cook on my ceramic grill...it's my new baby.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Shoes (Running, hiking, biking, climbing, fancy dress (not
costume, if you a British)
-My cast iron skillet
-Salt, pepper, garlic and butter (My grandfather taught me this is
all you need to cook...I still believe him)
-Teenagers...they are like tiny versions of real people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to spend more time outside of buildings.
How to use my car for good instead of evil.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typical is a misnomer, due to the wide variety of "weeks" I
experience; however, it will not include a club, college bar, or a
"domestic" beer of any type (ever).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am afraid of the dark and deep water.
-Whenever I visit my parents, at night, I run up the stairs of the
deck because I am sure there are things under the deck that will
grab my ankles. Ironically, darkness while camping doesn't bother
me in the slightest...
