My self-summary
Hi, welcome to me. My self summary- I was born and raised in Cincinnati, college in Indiana, culinary school in NY, moved to West Palm Beach, FL, moved back to NYC for 11 years, and I just moved to Chicago a couple months ago for a new job. I've met some amazing people, lived the rockstar lifestyle, and had an inordinate amount of fun. I'm pretty much up for anything at anytime, and I've traveled ridiculous lengths for fun. Since everyone else loves to brag about their world travels, here are my spots I've been: Moscow, Germany, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, all parts of the Carribean and Mexico. I love vacations and am an excellent funtivities planner. I'm also the guy who will wake up on a random Saturday morning and say, "Wanna drive to Denver?", and then do it (yes, this really happened).

I enjoy going out to some of the best restaurants in the city, whether they be fine dining, or some basement place in Chinatown, I love it all. Big bonus points if you're into food and wine. If you don't eat anything beside easy mac and chicken fingers, please move on. Those things have their place, but not as a main staple.

Just to ram home my tendency towards anal retentiveness, here's a list of things that I like. Yes, it's lame, but effective:
Laughing until you can't breathe, TED Talks, Farmers Markets, Heated car seats, Witty Banter, Doughnuts, Staying up late, Getting up Early, Chapstick, Last Minute Road Trips, Cooking at home, Yankees baseball games, Good Bourbon, Irony, Slow Braised Meats, Laying on a blanket in the park, Making lists, NPR, Down comforters, Playful wrestling, New York Times Dining Out Section on Wednesday, Vespa rallies, PBJ's, Spontaneity, Giving and Receiving Surprise gifts, Useless Knowledge, Naps under a warm blanket on a cold day, Sunday morning coffee on the couch, Friendly competition with shit-talking, and Walking in the city with nowhere to go. I think that should cover just about everything.

****** If you're interested and would like to chat, please don't hesitate in sending me a message. I'm generally a very nice person and converse well with strangers. Visiting my profile 72 times in hopes I will notice and send you a message is not the way to go about things. Take a chance! You never know how things will turn out. Thank you for listening to this PSA ******
What I’m doing with my life
Besides wreaking havoc, I actually have a real job. After cooking in some of the highest end NYT rated restaurants in Manhattan, I landed my dream job being a Research and Development Chef for a fresh foods company. Now I get paid to play around all day and create recipes and products for different companies around the country. Plus, it's M-F, no nights or weekends. If you ever worked in the industry, you'll understand how amazing that is.
I’m really good at
- Swiping my Ventra card on the first try
- Keeping the brita full
- Parallel parking
- Reading body language
- Being calm and the voice of reason when shit is hitting the fan
- Doing projects and making things that I have zero knowledge of, tools for, or idea of how to complete. You can learn anything from just watching HGTV for a few hours.
- I'm also a pretty decent cook, so that doesn't hurt.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can relate on some level to just about anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The 4 hour Work Week
Born To Run
The Divided Mind
90's alternative rock
Game of Thrones
It's Aways Sunny in Philadelphia
Science Channel/ Nat Geo/ HGTV
Dive Bars/ Fancy Schmancy Lounges
Fine Dining/ Hole in the Wall/ Cooking at Home- whatever
The six things I could never do without
Unbelievable family and friends
Sarcasm
String Cheese
Hot showers
Bose Noise Canceling Headphones
Camera
-TSA Pre Check is pretty awesome too, but that can be an alternate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Why nobody thought it would be a good idea to build an express track for the blue line from O'Hare to downtown. I mean, come on city planners!!
- If I should be proud or ashamed of myself after I completed the Krispy Kreme Challenge Race (look it up... it's as gross as it sounds. I really just wanted the t-shirt)
- I also always think I have the next best million dollar idea, but it turns out it's already for sale at Bed Bath and Beyond
On a typical Friday night I am
Being a smartass
Exploring restaurants and bars in my new hood
Relaxing at home making dinner and drinking wine or bourbon
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a roomba vacuum. It's meant to be a time saver so you can accomplish other tasks while it's vacuuming. I negate every positive trait about it by watching it incessantly just to see where it's going to go next. Someone should name a mental health syndrome after me.
Added Bonus! - I suck at mental maths. Give me a calculator and I can get you to the moon. Ask me to tip the pizza delivery guy with the difference from a 20 and I turn into the equivalent of a chimp. It's a gift.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–39
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
- You are willing to put in as much effort as I do.
- You can have as much fun at home as you can going out
- You don't smoke... even when you drink
- You don't have any major food hangups
- You're not super serious about your religious beliefs
- You can handle splitting a bottle of wine at dinner w/o me carrying you home
- Your grammar and spelling skills don't suck, but you aren't a nazi about it either
- To sum it up: Laid back, fun, spontaneous, and low maintenance.
