My self-summary
I rescue orphaned puppy dogs and teach them how to do data processing and basic customer service stuff. Sometimes it's hard being the boss, but my associates definitely appreciate the leg up on euthanasia.
What I’m doing with my life
OK. Here's the real deal. (presented Downton Abbey style)

Lord Grantham: "So Mr. curbs10009, I'm most skeptical my daughter would be inclined to date a lowly exploiter of the canine masses. Most likely, she would much prefer a chauffeur.

curbs10009: "Lord Grantham, my words were merely meant to convey a whimsical sensibility. Your daughter's appreciation of such hypothetical satire is one of her finest attributes. In fact she convinced PBS to make a series about some people you probably know."

LG: "Indeed, throughout her youth she has been known to exalt in spirited jest. Creative type, are you? hmmmph So how do you pay the rent tribute?"

curbs: "Your lordship, I have the good fortune to be in the employ of King de Blasio. I'm a teacher."

LG: "It was rumored to me that teachers can only afford to sleep on futons in Bushwick Abbey in railroad apartments with 5 roommates?"

curbs: "Sir, I appreciate your concern, but I assure you that I reside in splendorous solitude in the East Village, well steeled away from the uncouth taint of hipster roommates."

Usually I'm not this obtuse, but sometimes a little weirdness is a good filter. Abstract: I'm an autism intervention teacher/therapist. I ride my bike around Brooklyn and work with extra special kiddos in their appartments. I also design communication devices for them. Occasionally I freelance as a photojournalist. My last big project was a book about New Orleans street performers. I go back there from time to time to get updates. .
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6'5". Sometimes people remark upon my height. This usually elicits one of several stock retorts:

1. The size of my soul is immeasurable.
2. I'm really 5'4" but my legs are wooden and it's gonna rain.
3. Yeah, I keep getting bigger. (intellectually)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Live shows. My favorite venues are tucked away jazz spots with more musicians than audience members.
I play piano, harp and guitar
Here's me playing a jazz song on harp
Books: Mostly narrative nonfiction. Fascinated with social histories, particularly ones told in the first person. My favorite genre is well edited oral history with awesome pictures.

Food: Yes
Six things I could never do without
OK with being naked in the wilderness and occasionally indulge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to trick kids into thinking they're having fun when they're actually learning something.

How to take candid, artistic photos without being an obnoxious jerk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to pick up women at the MOMA.
(It's real easy but when the alarm goes off they make you put the statue back)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dig Lionel Richie.
You should message me if
You're a kind, intelligent woman with an easy smile who loves New York City.
You'd like to meet up.
The two of us
