My self-summary
Important things about me:

I try to be a good guy. I've learned the hard way that I cannot make everyone happy or like me, but I give it the old college try. I like shopping but I prefer traveling. I like cooking for people and I will answer my phone at 3 am if you need me. I value friendship over anything else in a relationship. You can tell a lot about a person by the trail of exes they leave behind. Most of mine still talk to me in friendly tones. Well-chosen words are the best way to my heart, but flirting opens many doors. I don't think you can call it love if you are not willing to change your life. I am very sexual, but I play by the rules. I lost my virginity later than most of my friends, but the year after I lived abroad and made up for my late start. I live on a need-to-know-basis: If I need to know something is wrong, you need to tell me. I will do the same for you.

Sometimes, I see myself as the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. I think too much about everything and I try to rationalize everything to avoid being hurt. I try to substitute logic for emotion because emotions are too fickle. In my head, I forget that most people are sensitive to words and what sounds acceptable to me has caused me a few fair-weather friends. The real friends know to call me on it. I am good about admitting my faults. Like I tell my students, you cannot grow if you don't make mistakes.

Parce que je suis né en Louisiane, je parlais français à l'école. La Louisiane a deux langues officielles, anglais et français. Beaucoup de gens dans mon état parlaient français quand j'étais jeune, mais asteur, beaucoup de gens choisissent étudier l'espagnol. J'ai étudié le français cadien à l'université de réfléchir à mon histoire. Il y a certaines différences entre le français standard et français cadien. Par exemple, en la Louisiane on dit "asteur," pas "maintenant." Mais, c'est le même chose. Mon français n'est pas parfait, et j'ai probablement fait des erreurs, mais je veux continuer étudier et pratiquer mon français.

Quand je suis pas apprendre le japonais, une langue très importante pour moi ici au Japon.

I am literate, alliterate, and handsy
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently teaching English while acting at every chance I get. I will be a performer no matter where I live. I have held a strong passion for the stage since Kindergarten when I played Tenderheart, the leader of the Care Bears. I have a B.A. in Theatre- Acting and Directing and three-fourths of a Psychology B.S. (TBC IDK). But I'd rather get a M.F.A. in Directing.

I've been living in Tokyo over a year and a half. Jealousface no more. I've finally started enjoying my life in Japan, almost three years after I moved here.

Maintenant, je suis professeur d'anglais dans une école de conversation. J'ai l'intention de visiter les théâtres traditionnels japonais (, Kabuki, Kyogen et Bunraku).

I’m really good at
Giving advice (from a rational standpoint), mixing drinks, laughing aloud.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I am wearing sunglasses, I can sometimes hear people whisper "Will Smith" as I pass. It's the ears. But, then again, I am a 185cm tall black man in Japan with size 30 shoes. Very little about me fits in here.
