Well, here's my personality in a nutshell. I love to have fun,
ideally experiencing life's treasures with another, if it is
finding the best slice of pizza, tastiest cupcake, best roller
coaster ride, or a good festival in Chicago. Friends have shared I
am a pretty positive person with a great sense of humor. More
extroverted then an introvert (although I was quite shy growing
up), can be the life of the party or sit back with a beer, people
watch and observe. Come find me so we can enjoy the summer
What I’m doing with my life
After 15 successful years in residential sales for Chicagoland
builders, I am now working on the other side of the transaction as
a mortgage banker. When the work day is over, it's normally spent
with friends over dinner or a movie & during the summer,
playing a lot of tennis in leagues or pick up games, beach vball,
eating in fun restaurants, and getting to as many of the 400 summer
festivals as possible. I have a great life, great family, and
hoping I can find a special lady to enjoy a new romance and
I’m really good at
My best sports are Tennis, Vball, and am decent at
baseball/softball but haven't been in a league in some time (is
rollerblading a sport??). I love photography and hope to get out
this summer with my tripod and capture the city at night, big time
into Pilates for the last 4.5 years, finding humor in the little
things, body surfing, spotting quality people ... oh, and I'm a
The first things people usually notice about me
When someone first meets me, I normally get comments on my height,
how white and straight my teeth are ... as they get to know me,
having a huge laugh when something cracks me up, good at giving
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a huge lover of movies - anything and anything from the Cohen
Brothers (cept for Hudsucker Proxy!) & Tarrantino, Wedding
Crashers, Cinema Paradiso, Seven, Groundhog Day, The Hustler,
Garden State, and recent additions would now include Midnight in
Paris and Win Win.
TV would be almost anything on HBO summer shows (In Treatment,
Entourage, True Blood (2nd season was insanely enjoyable), Bored To
Death, and Dexter, Friday Night Lights (best show on television!),
Shows - anything at Steppenwolf, and I have to give a plug to
Lookingglass for family reasons.
Music: Foo Fighters, Sting, Barenaked Ladies, Prince, JT, Justin
Timberlake, Jason Mraz, old Michael Jackson.
Books: I don't read much, but anxious to get into the Girl with the
Tattoo series - I have the books, just need to sit down and read
them. LOVE Stephen King.
Food: Sushi, sushi, and more sushi, Lou Malanati's deep dish
peppperoni or Barnaby's pizza for their thin crust (it's like a
drug), fish, chicken ... a great steak.
The six things I could never do without
My Apple babies: iPad, iMac, iPhone, my bed & down pillows
(they are a set so can't be broken up and count as one), dental
floss, Tivo, goes without saying my sister and folks, strong cup of
coffee and a hot shower to start my day .... is that six yet?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can do good things for myself and others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out for dinner, with friends or on a date or off to the
burbs to enjoy time with my family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a bit of an open book and don't have many private things, but
I have kept a journal since high school, although I hardly write in
it anymore ever since the Internet came on the scene.
You should message me if
you would enjoy getting to know a nice fella who happens to be over
6 ft tall, enjoy great conversations and if we hit it off, we can
both jump off this site together!
