Doctoral Candidate in Philosophy
How about we… Catch a movie at the Moolah before traipsing down The Loop looking for trouble - or food, I guess.
How about we… head to Improv Asylum for some raucous theatre, then grab a slice at Pizzeria Regina or a pastry at Mike's!
An awesome place I've visited
Petra, in Jordan: the amazing pink stone city!
My perfect sunday
I speak for my congregation (I work for a Humanist community in Ladue), then get a late lunch with a friend before heading home to relax. Sundays are work days for me!
The movie I've watched the most times
Probably Blade Runner.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer

High school English teacher with Teach First (like Teach for America in the UK). Doctoral degree in the philosophy of human development at Harvard. Now leader-in-training at the Ethical Society of St. Louis.
My first concert / My dream concert
My first real concert might have been Prince at 18 - he was AMAZING, and I went to the after party and he came out and played for HOURS! I would LOVE to see Florence and the Machine in collaboration with Peter Gabriel. Yeah, I said it ;)
Obscure knowledge I possess
I know all about the dark arts of persuasion...
I have a weakness for Guys/Girls who
Have dark eyes, loud laughter, and a lust for life.
For me, a first date no-no is
Rudeness to other people.
What I would bring to show and tell
My copies of the notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. I love both his sketches and his written ideas - such a mind!
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date
There are too many to choose one - I'm full of stories.
I secretly want to be
A megachurch pastor for atheists ;)
I want to be with someone who wants to be
A force for good in the world!
An infatuation of mine
I have a foolish love of waistcoats (or what you Americans call "vests").
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would
I don't think I'd quit my job - id use the money to set up an institute to promote Enlightenment values.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me
Although I can seem self-important, I'm really a sweetheart ;)
I want to come home to
A hug, a cup of tea, laughter, and love.
