I am mysterious, exotic, and cute. (That's not really how I'd describe myself. It’s just a line from a movie.)
More specifically,lately I'm out dancing, in making homebrew, sometimes reading and hiking and snowshoeing and skiing and writing and cooking. That's when I'm not out on my daytime gig/crusade to make math fun and interesting and engaging and important to kids.
My sense of humor

Wait no. That's Saturday. Friday is book club.
And I've never seen The Notebook.
Really, the only non-negotiable is the banter.
