I am very empathic to peoples feelings, dreams and struggles.
In my career, I have used my academic success in multiple disciplines to foster individual human success and social justice.
Away from work, I have emphasized personal relationships. I am considered a very sentimental, nurturing fellow who loves to make people laugh. I am generally considered very unboring. I have some great hobbies that seem to make me fun to interact with. I occasionally perform stand up comedy, watch movies of all types, love great music and writing, try to keep very informed, and am an expert duplicate bridge and poker player.
Overall, I am very comfortable in a wide range of situations, am adventurous, and love involved conversations of all sorts.
I think that a compatible sense of humour is very important, so its one of the most important things that I look for in new friends.
I am a member of PFLAG, interersted in the research related to GLBTQ families, and advocate for these families where I can.
My range of books is very wide, anything from psychology to card play to politics to humor. Most recently I have been reading a lot of plays, playwriting books and books on GLBTQ issues.
Television Shows that I appreciate are: The Wire; The West Wing; The Newsroom; Aaron Sorkin's Sportsnight; Homeland; Freaks and Geeks; My So Called Life; Modern Family; The sopranos; Friday Nights Light; Sex and the City; Dream on; Dead like me; Room 222.
I love almost any kind of tasty food, my favorites are cambodian, ethiopian, hong kong and northern italian.
I love clever, or interesting composed music. I particularly like broadway.
