My self-summary
I'm an indoors-y, straight-edged fellow who tries to stay active to avoid being a couch potato. Prefer driving over flying, singing over dancing, spirits over beer, and puzzle games over first person shooters. Currently into swimming and hiking, but definitely a video games guy at heart.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Music Educator! Growing up, Music was such a staple in my daily school routine; it anchored my day and gave me something to focus on when things elsewhere weren't entirely stable. Now I'm aiming to provide that same safe, fun environment to a new generation of students. I've just about completed 4 years at the Elementary level, and I'm loving it!
I’m really good at
Finding the light side of things. I have a hard time watching serious movies because I always crack little jokes here and there. When I'm with other people, I very rarely have a bad time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty easy to talk to, and I smile a lot. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I'm reading someone else's profile, if I get to the Favorite Books/Movies/Shows section, and it's just a list of 20+ titles for each category, my eyes glaze over and I move on. "Favorite" means "one or two," in my mind. :)

Books:I read through all the Dresden Files books and enjoyed them. My most recent read was Gateway by Frederik Pohl (1977).

TV Shows: I honestly don't watch a lot of television. I haven't actively followed a TV show since I was a teenager.

Music:I listen to almost anything. Because I work with Elementary-age kids, I tend to avoid stuff with explicit lyrics, but in the privacy of my own home I will give anything a shot. Usually I gravitate towards electro-swing, jazz, and/or classical--music without any words at all. Check out Caravan Palace - Clash if you haven't heard it before! :)

Food: Not picky at all--I don't have any dietary restrictions. I favor sandwiches/burgers over noodles, and chewy things over soupy things. A good BLT and a chocolate malt will make me smile.

Video Games: I usually gravitate towards games that are colorful and youthful, have a stylized art design, or let you customize the appearance of your characters and environment. Games that have captured my attention for longer periods of time include Animal Crossing, Diablo III, and Space Engineers. I definitely prefer Multiplayer games to Single Player experiences, so if you've got a game you enjoy, teach me how to play!
The six things I could never do without
Electricity, Music, Imagination, Water, Passion, and Laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about silly things. Rhyming words and coming up with little poems/raps, sometimes using alliteration or a patterned use of letters. Making up arbitrary rules to govern a series of actions (the floor is lava!) and the possible ridiculous consequences of them affecting the world at large. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after a week in the classroom with a mixed drink and online conversation with friends. Occasionally some sort of light physical activity (walking/wandering) followed by winding down with a movie, computer/video game, or browsing forums online.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am phobic of three-dimensional environments in video games. If the camera clips too close to a wall or the surface of water, such that you get a glimpse of "the void" on the other side, I become incredibly anxious. My friends make no end of fun of me for this. It's a completely irrational fear. :)
You should message me if
If you make funny voices while you talk, or make up songs about everyday tasks!
