My self-summary
Hi I am a sometimes silly, sometimes serious recent elementary school teacher with a masters degree ineducational media. At night sometimes I perform improvisational theater. I like to hang out and make friends (WHO DOESN'T)

I like Jazz, Comedy, Opera, and Musicals A LOT!
What I’m doing with my life
I have been a computer scientist and a high school teacher but currently I teach elementary school. A few years back I received my M.A. at NYU in Digital Media Design for Learning which is fancy talk for educational media and new ways to teach using technology . I hope to one day get my PHD and teach at a University.

This entire time I hope to spend a lot of my free time doing improvised musicals but am on a small break
I’m really good at
Making stuff up for fun, sleeping, Always being uncomfortably early

If I had a super power I would want the power to summon sandwiches. Villainy will take a break this day (to eat a delicious sandwich) ... or lasers ... things are always better with lasers... laser sandwiches...
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses, the fact that I wear ties and bow ties, and that I can be loud.

People in New York City tend to think I am unnaturally nice. I don't think think it is unnatural and I don't want to change it. I feel I marble in enough snark to make up for it

There is also something about me that when I am in a store, there is a 60% chance a mother with children will apologize to me after mistaking me for an employee. (Sometimes if I know the store well enough I will just help them, one time a lady wanted to fill out a employee satisfaction card for me and then I told her I didn't work at the Target, I wasn't even wearing red)

Food: I LOVE FOOD. Don't even get me started ( I am an equal opportunity eater) Recently my friend took to an amazing vegetarian place, no I am not vegetarian but I have gone there once a week since.

Other things I like: Board Games, Karaoke, Netflix, Hulu, Talking to strangers (it is so hard to get them to talk back), etc

And yes I play video games. (Look at my educational choice). But not as much anymore. Most of the time I get home too late because I was out singing while exploring the city.

Also I am a consumer of most things nerdy so if you like nerds I am you one stop shop
Six things I could never do without
Food, Water, Oxygen, Atmospheric Pressure, Gravity, Life? ...

Is this response too smart ass .. Nope it's too hackneyed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much easier it would be to find my glasses if I had my glasses on.

Obviously Photoshopped models in advertisements. When has this become acceptable or even desirable. It bothers and lightly appalls me.

What penguins are thinking.
"Welp ... what you doin'"
"Sittin' on this hill of ice"
On a typical Friday night I am
This is unpredictable
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am pretty open. If you ask me I might tell you (Good job giving yourself an out Greg. Thank you Greg.)

I don't know why, but every time someone says they like adventures on this site, I read the sentence over in my head with a "piratey" accent. I don't judge. The Pirate lifestyle is a jovial, yet sometimes dangerous one.

I am an atheist but I am of the opinion that religion is good as long as it makes you happy. I am all for you going to church and having a relationship with your maker and community. Also I LOVE CHRISTMAS, no one told me I cannot celebrate if I do not believe, besides I grew up with it and it is fun as hell.
You should message me if
You want to play Exquisite Corpse with me.

If you want to hang out and get a bite. If you have a sense of humor. If you like conversations.

You like nerds

I dislike sports and if they are the most important part of your life we are not going to be compatible. I don't however mind if you watch sports on occasion, and if you want I will go to a baseball or basketball game (but I will talk the entire time).

You want to tell me why you are or are not interested. Seriously I can take the hit.

Don't message me if you don't want me to reply because I will ... eventually
The two of us
