I'm both serious and fun-loving. I can be really quite funny. I mean really funny. I teach at the university, follow politics and current events closely. And I am often also very serious, about those things that I believe are important.
I have a big heart....very big. I look out for loved ones as well as strangers. I'd like to think that I'm a gentleman.
I am passionate about everything I do and can't imagine doing much of anything without being passionate about it, but for doing taxes but even there I'm passionate about getting it the heck done.
I really like to know my partner well and talk about our inner lives.
I enjoy reading and movies. I've even done a little film reviewing back in the day, and have written a few books.....not too heavily academic. One quite academic, and one relatively light.
I like blues a great deal and jazz and up to about 4 years ago I was in a rock and blues band (drums). I'm a bit of a movie buff and teach a few film classes at the university.
It's true that my picture is a little out of date but that's only because I haven't had a newer one to load.
But if you want to see me as I look currently, and moving about and all, let me know and if it seems like a good thing to do, I'll send you the url for a TV program I've been appearing on the last couple months.
