My self-summary
I moved to DC 2 years ago to teach. Now I have 70 middle school students who occupy my life. They say I've got the personality for it: patient, silly, stubborn and comfortable breaking up irrational scuffles.
What I’m doing with my life
I set out to pursue happiness this year, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I'm taking risks, trying new things, and not over-thinking every action until it's lost its magic. I'm writing, singing, running, biking, cooking, dancing , and picking up new hobbies. The best part about climbing into a new self is that everything is new.
I’m really good at
Wrestling with big ideas, and deep thoughts. Nothing is sexier to me than being shown a perspective of life that I've never perceived before. I like having my mind blown.

I've also got this knack for finding adventures.

And I cook well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: A Sense of an Ending was brilliant. Catch-22, Speaker for the Dead. Also anything by Steinbeck, Tobias Wolfe, Adam Levin, Gaiman, and Neil Stevenson. I'm dabbling in David Foster Wallace. I feel like there are a hundred more books, all sorts of contemporary fiction. I devour literature, and in the summers I can read a book a day. Oh! and My Name is Asher Lev.

I love modernist poetry. ee cummings is a god.

Movie: Have you seen "In Bruges" I don't mean to be all movier-than-thou, but it's fantastic. Go see it. And "Lucky Number Sleven"

Also.... Daniel Craig is the best Bond. I said it; I mean it.

Netflix (who watches TV anymore): Mad men and House of cards are just amazing. I am dying to see the third season on Sherlock, and i love Black's Books. and "Yeah, Mr. White. Yeah, Science!"

Music: Counting Crows, Daft punk, Metric, Chanticleer, Zeppelin, Dave Brubeck, The xx, Modest Mouse, Mumford and Sons, and Outkast. I'm all over the place.

And sharing good food and good alcohol.
The six things I could never do without
1) My writing notebook and my pen. I take them everywhere.

2) My pipe. It's a vice, I get it, but it's classy. And goes well with scotch.

3) Meeting strangers. I love meeting new people, and there are so many of them in the world!

4) This American Life. (I briefly met Ira Glass; if that's not exciting to you...)

5) Good food. The kind of food that makes you go, "yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the reason we exist."

6) The ability to remain calm in the midst of chaos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about whether Free Will exists and how to distill that endless train of thought into a novel that the New York Times would describe as "a rollickin' good time" and "existential doubt was never this much fun!"

Also why women dont use pickup lines. The only exception was this: once at a bar I a woman slid up next to me, put her hand on mine and asked, "are you married?" I was so surprised I just said, "No." Then she asked, "why not?" The only thing that came to my mind was that I was a busy teacher who had dedicated his time to his students and hadn't yet found the woman who wanted to be a part of that deep commitment I'd made to them, (which is a completely bullshit answer), but all I managed to say was, "I have like 80 kids. And they need me." before turning awkwardly and walking away.
On a typical Friday night I am
...just realizing that there is no school tomorrow! is it too late to make plans?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I cook, I'll narrate the whole time like I'm a chef on the food network. I do this even when I'm alone.

also I sing when I'm nervous. in Italian.

Also I dont have 80 kids.

You should message me if
You love literature, if you love new experiences, if you can be spontaneous and outgoing, and/or if I made you smile. Or if you're looking for someone to challenge. I like challenges.

You should message me if you're looking for someone to enjoy life with, not for someone to make you happy.
