My self-summary
Laid back, optimistic, and always giving others the benefit of the doubt. It's nearly impossible for me to get angry; and no, that is not a challenge.
What I’m doing with my life
Short Answer: I teach math teachers.
Long Answer: I'm a mathematics curriculum and professional development coordinator for a bunch of high schools in NYC.

In my non-mathematical time, I enjoy bar trivia, social sports leagues, and long walks on the beach. The best part about being finished with graduate school is that I have time to read for pleasure again.

If money were not an option, I would: play in a sports league 5 nights a week, teach one class a couple of days a week, travel on the weekends visiting locales and friends, and have a personal chef.
I’m really good at
Math; trivia; Scrabble; controlling plumbers dressed in red; making lists; trumpet playing; witticisms; patience.

I was once told I'd make an excellent game show host. I'll look into it if this math thing doesn't pan out.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Yo man, why are you happy all the time?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Dune, Childhood's End, Chuck Klosterman, and The Berenstein Bears.
Currently reading: A History of School Mathematics, Stanic and Kilpatrick (Eds.) & A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin.
Recently finished: A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin.
Note: I have not watched the show yet, so no spoilers!

Movies: Horror movie trailers, but not the actual movies themselves.
Most recently watched film: The Lobster.

Shows: Arrested Development > everything else.
I try to keep the shows I watch to a minimum. An exhaustive list of the shows I'm currently watching is: Last Week Tonight, The Big Bang Theory, Shameless, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Archer, Better Call Saul, Silicon Valley, Sherlock.

Music: I was in a band. We played Ska music. I'm sorta late to the music scene. I've been listening to Them Crooked Vultures on loop though lately.

Food: I am mildly allergic to raw red onions.
The six things I could never do without
Sarcasm.
Socks.
Hot showers.
Vision, in the literal sense.
Lists, listing, and the Oxford comma.
Transcendental numbers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What font I should use for my gmail. I've been using Garamond for a lot of my documents lately but I feel like it's overkill if I start using it for everything.

Recently, the Fermi Paradox and what camp I land in when it comes to the Great Filter.
On a typical Friday night I am
I keep an active social life; I'm out most nights of the week. When possible I enact a cycle of segmented sleeping; I find it much more in tune with my natural rhythm. Because of this, sometimes I'm home sleeping on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I didn't learn to swim until I was like 8 or 9. I had a fear of drowning. Then I became a lifeguard at 15. In your face childhood fears!

Also, I probably have more nephews than you. And I don't drink coffee.
You should message me if
(aside from the obvious reason)

...you have a math test coming up and you need something answered.

Part of me just wants a girl who I can just feel comfortable taking home to meet my family and play board games with us (mostly Scrabble but we've been branching out a bit lately).

If you're unsure of what to say, here's a question: If you could live in a foreign country, where would it be? Why there and not Portugal? If it is Portugal, why Portugal and not Kyrgyzstan?
