My self-summary
i grew up in nashville, tn and moved to ca in 2004 for grad school. Im now a professor of political science at KSU. here are some things:

-- i hate peas, but i love pea soup; i love carrots, but i hate carrot soup.
-- i think things that aren't true are generally more interesting than things that are.
-- i like old books, big words, slow food, bad dogs, ironic smirks, coffee by chemex, and craft beer.
-- i wish people would stop saying "humble brag," and i believe tim allen and chris berman should be ashamed of themselves.
What I’m doing with my life
i got my ph.d in political science at UC Davis, and I've just started teaching at KSU. and yes -- since you were wondering -- my syllabi are available upon request. i just completed a book manuscript on Jean-Jacques Rousseau (in stores early 2016!) and writing some other stuff that no one will ever read.
I’m really good at
1. grammar; and, punctuation.
2. morning coffee
3. shaking hands. as a rule, i go single pump. firm and masculine, but not confrontational
4. talking like dr. phil and singing like aaron neville
5. walking AND chewing gum
6. picking out good watermelons and peaches
7. my table manners are impeccable, and i can bait a hook
8. not to brag, but i'm pretty humble (see above)
9. humor as a defense mechanism and defense as a humor mechanism
The first things people usually notice about me
the mudflaps on my yaris.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: political philosophy stuff, overwrought Edwardian novels, the man who ate everything, the inside of a dog...
movies: the only film i saw, i didn't like it at all
shows: seinfeld, arrested, it's always sunny, extras, the simpsons (seasons 4-8), louie, comedians in cars drinking coffee, SEC football, etc...
music (at the moment): rhye, allah-las, seapony, radio dept, purity ring, real estate, chromatics, velvet underground, french kicks, dilla, obscure 90s hip-hop.
food: i'll just say i love to cook and eat, and for whatever reason it's important to me that you do, too.
The six things I could never do without
1. my dog
2. my chef's knife
3. my dutch oven
4, 5, and 6. my quill, bottle of ink, and barrister's wig
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why canadians are funnier than us.
On a typical Friday night I am
washing the dishes or not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i wear vertically striped socks to make my ankles look thinner, and i just don't understand complex carbohydrates.
You should message me if
