My self-summary
I'm what you get if you cross the DNA of a Sicillian with a Wookie. I watch way too many movies and read way too many graphic novels. I am unashamed of both habbits. I'm a writer...not like a hobbyist writer, like an MFA in Writing, several publications, more to come, I'm all kinds of awesome, writer. I am feining much more confidence in this self-summary than I actually have. I might talk like Loki (wait...second nerd reference), but I look and act more like Beast (of X-Men. GASP! THREE NERD do I still have a profile?!)
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I teach English Composition, Literature, Graphic Novel studies, and Writing at various colleges. I love it. I am also a published novelist.

I'm also helping my sister recover from brain surgery.
I’m really good at
Writing, cooking, and teaching (so I am told).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll use the comments of children:
"Are you Hagrid's son?" (I of course answered yes)
"You look like what I picture Beorn to look like!" (Before Beorn was shown in the Hobbit movie)
"BEAR MAN!" (Followed by a child trying to grab my beard....this actually happens periodically)

Meanwhile, most adults think I'm scary looking. Even my own mom likes to point that out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: There is no way to list everying. I mean, The Long Goodbye, Lord of the Rings, Kindred, Messiah Complex...I read a lot.

Movies: Same problem here. Children of Men, the Fall, Eternal Sunshine, Dark Knight, Amelie...but there are many more.
I love movies and I try to go to the movie theater as often as possible. So if you like film, we'll have a lot to talk about. And, with a lot of great movies coming out, it would be nice to have a pal to see them with.

TV: LOST, Breaking Bad, Blackish, Game of Thrones, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, STRANGER THINGS, Brooklyn 99....this makes me seem like a TV junkie, but I'm really not. I generally just binge watch from time to time.

Music: The Fratellis, TV on the Radio, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Hans Zimmer, Nina Simone, Kronos Quartet, Phillip Glass, the Section Quartet. I like pretty much all genres and will give everything a chance. My spotify lists has everything from Method Man to Rachmaninoff.

Food: Italian by default. Tacos.
Six things I could never do without
A way to write
Something to read (Comics or Books)
My job (which I love)
My sister
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to succeed. What my future will look like. I am a very ambitious person and always looking to bring my career to the next stage. But I still make time to relax and do simple things, like update my profile on OKCupid.

What movie should I watch while grading essays.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, it's usually one of two things:

At the movies
At home (writing, reading, grading, watching tv, watching movies)

may or may not include friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am trying to be healthier, but it's moving slower than I'd like.
You should message me if
You want to go for a walk around town.

You want to see a movie.

You want to take a walk to the movies.

Or if you think I'm interesting enough

...or want to condemn me for making comics "legitimate" because of the graphic novel classes I teach. (It's happened once)
The two of us
