Hi. I’m AJ.
I'm a professional photographer living in the West Loop.
I'm a generally happy and energetic person, living the dream and working hard to see it through.
I seek fulfillment in life by surrounding myself with good people and attempting to lead a good life.
I get a lot of happiness in seeking out big adventures in life; cross-country road trips on back roads, opening and curating an art gallery, making a go of my very fulfilling though possibly ill-advised career. These big adventures can be far between. I like to fill in little adventures in the meantime; heading out to Devil's Lake, foraging a meal with a biologist friend, ordering dim-sum entirely by pointing at pictures and asking the waiter what I shouldn't eat (unto the end of eating it).
In a relationship I'm looking for someone to be a partner in crime and also inspire me a little as I hope to inspire them. I'm really attracted to good people. Intelligence is also a huge turn on for me, as is creativity.
I’m looking for a relationship with an eye to the future. I’m not one to saddle a new relationship with a lot of expectations. I'm just looking for something with a lot of potential.
I'm also looking for someone with a great sense of humor. Someone I can take to Zanies, Second City, and The Annoyance. In that vein maybe Steppenwolf too if we're in an erudite mood.
I'm a glutton for affection. Few things make me happier than expression my feelings through words, touch and actions. I need someone who can be both accepting and giving.
