I'm a motivated, intelligent, easygoing guy who is always trying to
get the most out of life. I'm independent (own my condo), love to
travel, and enjoy exploring Chicago trying new restaurants, as well
as taking in the occasional show or concert. Lately, I've been ice
skating and doing bar trivia. I just returned from skiing in
Switzerland! Actually, my trip to Switzerland was a year ago. I
went to New Orleans this past December.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a small business owner who loves what I do. I have a dog
walking business and I enjoy the flexibility of my work as well as
being my own boss. Getting to spend all day with dogs is also a
plus. Before starting my own business, I worked in corporate
America. I"m glad I made the transition. If you're not a dog
person, we aren't a good match! Also, please only message me if you
live in the city.
I’m really good at
I'm excellent when it comes to giving advice, suggesting things to
do, and making others feel comfortable around me. Many people have
confided in me that they appreciate my willingness to just listen
when they feel the need to vent. Many friends seek my advice
regarding restaurant and bar recommendations.
The first things people usually notice about me
People notice my wry sense of humor as well as my knowledge of all
things Chicago. They also notice my magnificent beard!
