My self-summary
A creative, intellectual type who's open-minded, friendly, and a bleeding heart.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an assistant professor at a state university in Georgia.
I’m really good at
Listening and dealing with people or groups on an intuitive, emotional level. I also think I'm pretty good at teaching myself things and dealing with large amounts of abstract information.

My primary weaknesses: a jam-packed schedule throws me off; too many meetings exhaust me; loud environments keep me from enjoying myself; I have a compulsive streak when it comes to standards for myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually note that I come across as serious, honest, and mild in temperament.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: LOTS--I'm a humanities professor! One favorite that a lot of people haven't read is The Worst Journey in the World, which narrates and interprets the famous Scott expedition to the South Pole. It is the most remarkable attempt to come to terms with the horrible failure of human "big ideas" and the unbelievable, unstoppable suffering that results. I've never read anything else like it. On the one hand it's about the delusions of British imperial grandeur--seizing the Pole before anyone else could--and on the other it's about the human desire to accomplish great things and expand our knowledge of the universe.

TV: The Simpsons, seasons 2 through 9; Pawn Stars; Antiques Roadshow; Mike and Mike; the NFL (esp. the Jets, Browns, and Falcons)

Music: anything that seems honest. I'm looking forward to going to the EARL some time!

Movies: film noir; anything satirical

Food: Fresh veggies and fruits are a must.
Six things I could never do without
1) peanut butter (I have six different brands open at a time...I'm a connoisseur, I guess)
2) time off - seriously undervalued in modern societies, especially the US
3) a thought-provoking book
4) my family
5) fresh air and open space
6) a nice cup of coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I'm researching or teaching at the time, how my family is doing, what I want out of life, normal stuff...
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to find something new to do. I'm still getting used to living in Atlanta--it's been barely 6 months.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a hard time falling asleep in the dark. Usually I fall asleep reading and wake up in the middle of the night to turn off the light. Of course it's different when someone else is there... :)
You should message me if
You genuinely value conversation and a deep intuitive connection with a partner.
