My self-summary
First of all, please let me say, I don't want to dominate anyone or have them bow down to me. It's just not my interest, but to each its own.

In other news, I worked as a public school teacher and assistant principal for the second half of the first third of my life, and thank God (literally), I was delivered from that. If we get to know each other, I'll gladly share some of the stories. Ask me about how video cameras in school building hallways can be helpful or what a handgun looks like up close when you take it off of a student. I've got stories you wouldn't believe.
Plus, now I can go to the bathroom on a whem.

I now work in another people-focused industry in which my education past is a big help. Also, being a Southerner, where it's not uncommon to say hello to a complete stranger, is a big help. I've inherited the skill of conversing with anyone about anything from my mom who says she would talk to a light pole. (I've seen her do it). For me, it comes from a place of genuine interest.

I'm originally from a blue dot city in a red state. I grew up swimming in spring water, hiking wildlife reserves with Mom Dukes, watching my dad fix stuff he found on his daily routes while driving the garbage truck and selling Girl Scout cookies when they cost only $1; I know my way around a comfy pair of Burkenstocks and some cutoff Levis.

I recently took a weekend vacay upstate to
Woodstock. It was the best out of town trip I've taken in quite a while. It involved good food, great weather, nice people and a return to nature. This Southern Baptist even visited the Tibetan temple there, nestled in the hills of the Catskills (I think). I didn't worship there, but just took off my shoes and looked at all of the gold statues.

Please know that I'm not country, but Southern. There's a difference. Who in New York is a real New Yorker nowadays? New Yorkers, you have accents too!!

I like traveling, sleeping, lounging, swimming, eating, futbol and relaxing on almost any Jamaican beach. I just took up kickboxing as well.

Please don't ask me to "tell me [you] more about yourself [myself]." That's an interview question. Instead, we both can learn more about each other by talking, not just texting. :)

What I’m doing with my life
I'm building an empire. Become my friend while I'm still on the second floor.
I’m really good at
talking to anyone about anything, starting conversations with random strangers, talking hostile people down, being authentically interested in someone other than myself, being considerate, making a plan and following it through, sleeping
The first things people usually notice about me
are my height and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
include "The Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell, "The Coldest Winter Ever" by Sista Souljah; 80s rock, 80s R&B, some alternative. Favorite food: seafood paella.
The six things I could never do without
my bed, nachos, an internet connection, self-worth, love and God (not in that order).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next for me in life, where I should travel next and my next business moves.
On a typical Friday night I am
at the movies, in bed early or enjoying time with friends after work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Home Depot is my fav store.
You should message me if
you are really single, not just separated; you have time to share; are adventurous; you find yourself mesmerized by History Channel specials or Animal Planet documentaries on whales and otters
