Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy life's little nuances! Who's with me on that one?
Surprising how many times I walk around town and someone shouts out
"hey smiley"... too funny. Considering it was an old nickname with
the running group and I haven't had a chance to run in over a year.
Wheres the time go?... I worked in Chicago for one of the big 4 for
a couple of years and sometimes miss the enjoyment of the big city,
but love the personal connections Grand Rapids offers. I was a
controller at a local heavy equipment rental company and got really
acquainted with navigating the circles of GR....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well... I consider myself very successful some days and a complete
failure others, its what keeps life interesting. I operate Grand
Slam Subs on the west side of GR (facebook.com/GrandSlamSub), if
you havent been there before you should! Its the only local subshop
that carries all local ingredients, meats, produce, sauces, soups,
sides and even drinks... pretty exciting! Typical American story,
grew up on a farm desired to own a business someday and its come
true lol. I can tell you one thing for sure... owning a business is
hard.... both successful businesses and failures. The verdict is
still out currently on what my endeavor will entail lol. My work is
a large part of my life and its the culmination of a lot of dreams
infusing into each other. Pretty exciting and rewarding all at the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wow... writing about oneself has got to be the hardest thing to
do... nobody want to show their conceeded, but everyone wants to
put the best foot forward hmm.... is there a middle ground? Please
someone let me see a good profile... hmm... maybe theirs a way to
askjeeves or something ;) lol.... well. I am self-sufficient; I
have my own house, car, boy toys (jetski/snowboard), man tools
(dewalt),etc. I really take pride in the fact that hard work is
rewarding.... What I have achieved is the work of my personal
motivation and stamina. Pretty simple but profund....
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile a lot lol.... I love looking for things that others take
for granted and look for opportunities that others miss. In that
regards I always find something quirky to talk about or interesting
to share. Theres never a dull moment lol... thats what I smile
about lol... I enjoy helping others. I often get crazy looks that I
can go from a political event or fundraiser (Professional Work) to
working on an apartment (Im a landlord) and back again without
anyone ever knowing how opposite my world's are.
