My self-summary

If it takes me awhile to get back to you, it's because I am *very* busy looking at pictures of *very* cute dogs. You'll understand, I'm sure.

I do a lot of things! This is one of them:

What do you do? This is an earnest question.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to work as a nurse in a surgical intensive care unit. You know, where everyone was incredibly healthy and spry.

We don't say "spry" enough, huh?

Anyhow, I don't do that any more.

Nowadays, I work as a tutor, photographer, comedian, and camp nurse.

It sounds confusing. It is. But it's also way fun.

I like to talk about mental health a lot.
I’m really good at
writing facebook statuses that break the arbitrary 50-like benchmark.
The first things people usually notice about me
exuberance, intelligence, enthusiasm, a jovial attitude

TV: Arrested Development, Party Down, Veep, 30 Rock, Futurama, The Simpsons, MASH, House of Cards, The West Wing, WONDERPETS (it might be the best show of all time), Sherlock, Pawn Stars, Shark Tank.

Food: All. Especially spicy. Especially buffalo.
Six things I could never do without
Why six? What is special about the number six? Was there a focus group that led to this number?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You should message me if
You are the type of person who would wake up one morning and say, "Hey, do you want to go kayaking on the Hudson today?" And I would go, "But it's February!" And you would say, "Come on! LIVE a little!" And you would win and we would go and it would be fantastic. Well maybe not that specifically, but you get the idea.

You like to run.

You are an adventurer.

You approach life with a motley blend of exuberance, passion, and childlike wonder.

You are fascinated by the minutiae of every day life.

You like to laugh frequently and at high decibel levels.

You are funny. You believe comedy is awesome and healing for us all.

You can push me. I can push you. In all ways.

You look at the world and you're like, "Hey this is great, now how could we make this even better?"

You like trick-taking card games.

You like the outdoors. You would be down for camping, or hiking the Appalachian Trail.

You like the indoors, too.

You are nice, compassionate, warm. This is important.

You can teach me something new, and really want to do so.

You have your own reason for doing so.
The two of us
