Hello! I've recently relocated to the Southcoast of Massachusetts where I'm teaching at UMass Dartmouth. Before then, I lived in Romania on a research and writing grant for a year after finishing my PhD in English.
Writing and books are my passions but certainly not my sole interests. I love good stories wherever I can find them, whether that be in the movies and television, sitting around a campfire or dinner table listening to close friends share the small and large stories of their lives, or creating my own new stories through travel, out-of-door fun, and serving others.
I consider myself to be intelligent and hardworking, a great lover of the outdoors, a movie buff, a bookworm, an adventurer, a thrill seeker, a night owl, a wannabe chef, a decent singer, a bad dancer, a good aunt, and a chocolate addict. Dark chocolate preferred.
I am looking for someone I can build and share a life with, who has the Gospel as the central focus of his life. I love to laugh and be goofy but also enjoy those quieter, more intimate moments of being with one's best friend. Surprising how hard that is to come by. But you never know.
