What I’m doing with my life
I spend my days as an educator in a synagogue helping teens build their identities and form meaningful connections with service and community. I've been running from this type of thing most of my life because my whole family has a history of working in education and I didn't want to be defined by it but now that I'm actually doing it, I am freaking loving it. Go figure.

I have big goals for myself professionally, so grad school is on my horizon for sure. I want to change how we approach emotional health in our schools and families and want to champion inquery based learning
I’m really good at
-An English accent (I had one as a child but was sent to speech therapy to get rid of it lest I develop a speech impediment...great party trick though)
-beatboxing
-singing sentences in casual conversations
-empathizing
-nerding out with a great video game
-public speaking of all kinds
-making my friends laugh
-making people feel welcome, accepted, and important -regurgitating lines from Lord Of The Rings
-lazer tag (one time anyway)
-talking ALL things soccer
-playing with animals
-making babies laugh
-calling my grandmother every Friday to see how her week was -drinking until I hit my absolute limit and not going over it (usually),
-learning new board/card games

...I'm sure there's other stuff too but that's enough for now
The first things people usually notice about me
That I make them feel like the most important person in the room

Recently my bad ass undercuts :P

- My Family
- Being around people
- My teams (Revs and Tottenham)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Universe and my place in it, soccer, my future, our past, injustices, what I should be grateful for, my challenges, feelings of others, if I'm doing enough with the time given to me. I'm an overthinker really, so basically anything and everything
On a typical Friday night I am
Really varied. Could be singing, eating, telling stories, spending quality time with friends or family, playing board games, drinking whiskeys, raging, reading
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen to comedic radio shows from the 1950s in the car as much as I do regular radio or music.
You should message me if
You really enjoy watching soccer (at that point you've already won me over)

Or you want to meet up with a sane non-creeper just so you can tell yourself that there are some decent gentlemen out there who are just looking for connection and depth like you are
