My self-summary
I spent a year teaching English in Korea and 4 months after that traveling in Southeast Asia. I just got back to the States a few months ago and I'm trying to figure out the next step.
I have gone through a lot in the last couple years. In addition to my time in Asia, I came out and lost more than 100 pounds. Ready to get out there!
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a substitute teacher and swim coach for now. I'm looking for a full time job so I can get out of the house. The job will probably be in media or marketing but what I really want to do is comedy writing-I'm taking classes at Second City and I want to be in the city to get more involved in the comedy scene here.
I like running a lot, and just did my first half marathon. Maybe a marathon some day? I waver.
I’m really good at
-Eating pizza
-Making people laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-Music:Huge music geek. I mostly listen to rap these days but I can hold my own talking about most genres (except country and metal probably).
Kanye, Outkast, Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, The XX, The Beach Boys
-TV Shows: Parks and Rec, The Simpsons, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad
-Movies: I watch a fair amount of movies, but most of the ones I end up going back to a lot are comedies.
Zoolander, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Bridesmaids, Lord of the Rings
-Books-Love reading, and I'm always open to recommendations.
Crime and Punishment, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Orphan Masters Son, The Kite Runner
-Would it surprise you if I said pizza? That being said, I absolutely love food and trying different kinds. Some of my favorite cuisines are Italian, Korean, Mexican, Indian, and Japanese.
Also cheese. And chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends and family.
2. Exercise (because I love it, and also the pizza thing).
3. Traveling.
4. Great music, books, movies, etc.
5. New possibilities (travel, new people, new foods...)
6. Coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People and things that I care about. My friends and, music I'm listening to, my fitness goals.

I also spend a bit of time pondering the bigger stuff. Where my life is going, what it all means, and so on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends. A good meal and a few drinks with good people is hard to beat.
You should message me if
You'd like to know someone who's ridden in the Oscarmayer Wienermobile several times.
The two of us
