High school teacher and UMass graduate, currently living in Metro Boston. Into hiking, rock climbing, cycling, etc. I've been all over the country, Europe and South America, but still find nowhere as strangely beautiful and intriguing as New England. I value food that tastes good and is good for me. I would like to play more chess. Clothing should be comfortable. Conversation is an art. Rambling autobiographies are an undervalued genre.
