Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Minneapolis after living in Madison, WI and Chicago
the past few years. I've Lived out East and throughout big cities
and now I'm back in the Midwest. I’m a young professional with a
steady career path. I grew up in a small Wisconsin town - grew up
on a farm with horses, cattle, sheep, dogs, cats and a fishing
pond. I’ve fished, drove trucks and love the small towns plotted
throughout Wisconsin. However, my mind and heart were in far off
places, sometimes through books, music and films. I continue these
journeys even today.
I’ve been known to have a music mix that ranges from The Clash,
Johnny Cash, the Talking Heads, Public Enemy and spans to Chet
Baker. My favorite movies range from The Big Lebowski to Ladri di
biciclette. You’ll even catch me still going to Rocky Horror
Picture shows w/ rice and newspapers in hand. My books range from
literature to world affairs, and I’m a firm believer in reading the
New Yorker and the NYTime Sunday paper. I religiously listen to
NPR. I love to cook fresh foods and I love cafes with dangerous
menus and flowing bottles of wine.
I still dig my can of Old Style tall boys when I’m listening to the
ballgame on the radio or ice fishing. I love camping, trucks with a
good story and Friday Fish Fry. You’ll also find me at concerts
that range from classical and jazz to modern music. I can also
enjoy a day of cross country skiing and at night hit the town for a
nice dinner in the evening. I may move a little slow if we're
talking a 20 k run however.
For me the fun is in the small adventures you can find in everyday
life, such as excellent green chili found in a Pharmacy in New
Mexico to summer outdoor Italian films on an off street of
Baltimore’s harbor. This is when I’m in my element, finding the
wonderful details of life even in the smallest of places - a
Subcultural Jacques Cousteau.
I’ve lived, loved and lost and I continue this cycle. I have no
Some may say I’m vertically challenged – bout 5’6 but I’m secure in
the body I was given. I eat healthy, workout during the week and I
play hard on the weekends. I’m pretty clean cut with gentleman-like
qualities (I still carry a hankerchiff) but I often surprise people
when I sport my old school punk t-shirts or my flavor fresh adidas-
that’s how I role sometimes.
I am an old soul searching for a companion to carry on with.
