My self-summary
I’m fascinated by a medley of things - sports teams, educational issues, poker plays, whatever Obama happens to be singing. Like other normal human beings, I enjoy a blend of quiet, home-based stuff (cooking a nice meal, lazing about watching tv) and venturing out to explore new places, new foods, new
experiences.

I'm an educator. It’s an exciting time and I hope to share that excitement with someone special. Message me if you think we could hit it off.
What I’m doing with my life
My "real" job is teaching, but what I would really love to do is be a food and film critic. I would also love to be a photographer, but that's another story.
I’m really good at
I love basketball, poker, hiking, taking long walks, talking politics, discussing HBO programming and taking well-composed photographs and critiquing them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be quiet, but only until I feel comfortable. I am just shy, but am a fun-loving guy when I bust out of my shell.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: John Adams, Game Change, An Ethic of Excellence, The Promise, The End of the Line, The Road, Robopocalypse, Life of Pi and many more...

Movies: Jurassic Park (only the first one), Saving Private Ryan, Nixon, JFK, Indiana Jones trilogy (except for the last one), Schindler's List, Fire in the Sky (scariest movie ever!), Shawshank Redemption, LA Confidential, Seven, Ed Wood, anything with Mark Ruffalo, 2001 Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Slumdog Millionaire, Anchorman, Wedding Crashers, Rushmore, Harold and Kumar series, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and dozens more...

Shows: Real Time with Bill Maher, The Walking Dead, Mad Men, Homeland, Californiacation, Game of Thrones, basically anything on HBO and Showtime, though I did just finish watching Game of Cards on Netflix.
The six things I could never do without
my ipad
Internet
politico.com
my camera
a comfortable blanket
last one? um...a toothbrush?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where can I find the best of everything wherever I am. What's the next show or exhibit I want to check out. Oh, and when I am going to learn how to use Photoshop.
On a typical Friday night I am
Desperately trying to keep my eyes open after a brutal week of work and from waking up at 5:30 am every day. But mostly having drinks with my buddies or hopefully watching a really good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want to learn how to dance, but am too shy to try. I've contemplated dance classes many times, but have never pulled the trigger. Would love to go to a dance class with someone as a potential date. :)
You should message me if
If you want to hang out with a nice guy and see or do something special!
