I'm a pretty normal guy if you like weird guys. I like live music,
being outside and going out on the weekends. I graduated college
two years ago and I hope to be a designer with a creative agency
within the next few years. I'm currently working at a newspaper ad
company and the hours make it hard to meet people. Hopefully, this
site can change that.
I like to travel whenever I get the opportunity. In the past few
years I've visited Greece and Italy. I hope to see Iceland or
Bruges or some other quiet European place in the near future.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently designing newspaper ads in Downtown Des Moines.
Hopefully, in a few years I'll be working at a creative

adventurous. It's easy for me to get sucked into an everyday

more out of life. I wouldn't say it's grown into a fire yet, but

As far as music goes I've been into hard rock and metal most of my
life. However, I have been listening to more and more different
types of music lately. Current favorites include Amanda Palmer, The
Temper Trap, Kimbra, Kavinsky, Rammstein, Mastodon, and a bunch of
For movies, my favorites are The Departed, Sunshine, Fight Club,
Master and Commander, Pulp Fiction, There Will Be Blood and others
that don't come to mind at the moment.
I don't read as much as I want to, but I do have a few favorites. I
like Ender's Game, The Forever War, 1984, and I just read the
Hunger Games series, but I can't honestly put that on a list of my
TV favorites are Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Game
of Thrones, Top Gear (UK), House of Cards, How I Met Your Mother
and most recently Star Trek: The Next Generation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Typography/Design, Women, and Time Travel. That pretty much sums up
what goes on in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays are never quite as exciting as I want them to be. However,
on Saturday nights I'm usually hanging out around downtown with my
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes, when I'm drunk, I like to pretend I'm describing the
Internet to Ben Franklin. It's harder than it sounds, but I like
how amazed I imagine he looks.
