A little about me...
I'm not an easy guy to pigeonhole. I like sweatshirts, jeans and Armani suits. I'm an accomplished cook, yet like New York City street vendor hot-dogs. I like Reggae, the Blues, Opera and Koto music. I think it's too hot if the temperature exceeds 75, but lived in Dixie for many years. I rarely watch sports on TV; however, I do watch F1 racing and the America's Cup. I'm very at ease in front of a large crowd, but at small parties I am apt to be off by myself observing and hoping it will soon be over. My students say I'm funny, sarcastic and the "chillest" teacher they know. My closest friends describe me as funny and "An intellectual you can talk to." I like that. I think it really fits. I took a MyersBriggs test a while back. I'm an INTJ. Apparently INTJs constitute only 2 to 3 percent of the population. So, I guess it would be fair to say I'm rare, if not endangered. I am not that comfortable talking about myself. Ask anything you'd like. I believe in truth in advertising and will answer your questions honestly.
