My self-summary
I get along with just about everyone (even high school students!). I truly appreciate the simple joys in life, be it jumping in puddles or having pancakes with friends at 4am. Life is too short to spend constantly yearning for more and ignoring all that we have already.

I perform Improvised and Sketch comedy in front of paying audiences at the Dallas Comedy House in Deep Ellum on a regular basis, and it's one of the most fun and rewarding things I have ever done in my life. I've met amazing people, made lasting friendships, and above all have laughed (and made others laugh) on a constant basis!

I'm not a party animal or club goer, but I do love having the occasional drink or going out and exploring Dallas. Despite having lived here most of my life, I'm quickly realizing just how much there is to do and how many things I have yet to discover. For example, I recently learned of a place where you can go jump on Giant Trampolines! On the other hand, I spent way too much time trying to figure out the symbolism in some Chinese Art at the crow museum, so there are a lot of opportunities (I love Karaoke, Kayaking and Museums, to name a few - a pretty broad assortment!)

Despite this, it's the conversations, the company and the friendships we form that truly make things special. Many of the most rewarding experiences of my life have occurred while simply talking to friends and enjoying each others company, epic adventure or not! Intellectual or philosophical conversations are fantastic!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on my fourth year as a High School Social Studies Teacher, and I'm absolutely loving it! It's wonderful to be able to interact and joke with the students while teaching them and (hopefully) enriching their lives. Also, what other job lets you dress up like a World War 1 soldier and leap about the room with a NERF rifle reenacting battles in front of a live audience?
I’m really good at
Helping others get over disputes and disagreements and find some common ground. I don't get angry easily, and I'm a great diplomat. I really try to empathize with others and consider their points of view, and it really pays off in the end!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a Ginger and don't burst into flames when I walk into sunlight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I teach history for many reasons, one of which is that I love history (Crazy right?!) Consequently, I enjoy reading a lot of history and you can find me quite contentedly snuggled up reading for 3 hours about something TOTALLY AWESOME, such as a 1000 page biography of Napoleon. I also enjoy fantasy and science fiction.

Movies/TV: As far as TV goes, I love good scifi shows such as Doctor Who, Firefly, and Battlestar Galactica, along with dramas such as Sherlock and The Walking Dead. For movies, my taste can vary wildly, but if it were possible to have watched the Lord of The Rings Trilogy too many times, I would certainly qualify! Thank goodness that's not actually possible.

Music: I find that menial tasks such as cleaning the kitchen become infinitely more interesting with a booming orchestra and choir to make you feel like you’re saving the world in the process. Accordingly I love film scores, symphonic metal, and Gregorian choirs joined with electric guitar. Also, you can't go wrong with Freddie Mercury's voice.

Food: I’m quite open-minded about food, and I love delicious new things. Cooking can be fun, and I’m fairly good at it. However, I do have an ongoing feud with the beef tips and rice that launched a nefarious plot to kill me in the midst of the college Cafeteria a few years back.
Six things I could never do without
1. Long nighttime walks in the rain, watching the droplets sparkle as they fall in front of the streetlights and feeling the cold water wash my troubles away. While splashing in all the puddles like a five year old, of course.

2. Being able to express myself through the beauty of writing, be it in a serious manner or via a story about how my professors are secretly a band of galaxy-conquering Guinea-Pig Pirates bent on wiping out humanity.

3. Those rare moments when I have a building or vehicle to myself and I can turn up the volume to a wonderful song, burst out “singing”, and do some crazy-jumble of contortions that’s apparently supposed to be called “dancing”. Don't worry, you need not be witness to it should you not want to see the horror.

4. The waves of brilliant ideas and inspirations that come to me whenever I take a shower or a bath. I sometimes wonder if my good friend Mr. Bubble is psychic.

5. My inner ten year old. He’s a pretty cool guy when you give him a college education to work with, and unlike my actual ten year old self, he doesn’t spend his time thinking about Pokémon. He does still play with Legos however.

6. The opportunity to learn new things and gain a newfound appreciation of the world around me and a humble recognition of my own ignorance in comparison.

7. Friendship, Family and the opportunity to share in the joys of life with those I care about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I made straight A’s and am allowed to teach children even though I accidentally put body wash in my hair at least once a week (never shampoo on my body though!)
On a typical Friday night I am
I might be out relaxing with friends and playing pool or poker, or perhaps I'm just saving the universe from certain destruction in a video game. Or, most exciting of all, I’ll be manically plotting to make my students brains explode in sheer awe at the amount of knowledge they’ve learned (also known as lesson planning). So far I’ve been unsuccessful, but I’ll keep trying!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have three kidneys! So, if yours just falls out and you need a spare, let me know!
You should message me if
You're curious! I don't bite, honest!
The two of us
