My self-summary
I'm a progressive, free-thinking math teacher who composes electronic music, has a religious connection with stand-up comedy, and believes that love can live in all that we do.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, enjoying the fact that I'm finally learning how to slow down and enjoy life. Moreover, I have recently fulfilled a decades-long dream of owning an analog synthesizer, so I am the guy to talk to for all your fat bass needs.
I’m really good at
making the perfect mix-tape for any occasion. Also, eating left-overs.
The first things people usually notice about me
my curly head of hair and goofy sense of humor.

Lately, I am just glad to be here.
Six things I could never do without
1. Music
2. Libraries
3. Comedy
4. Barbeque
5. Peace
6. Kindness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
making things.
On a typical Friday night I am
going to see a friend's band play or taking it easy at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I'd give anything to be able to whistle.
You should message me if
you think I sound funny or charming. I love making other people laugh and smile.
The two of us
