My self-summary
As a person, I am open minded individual who takes others seriously but rarely take myself seriously. I have no long term plans at the moment (simply can't think that far) with the exception of my kids and career. I am looking for partners who appreciate dining, live music, are more on the humorous side and enjoy the occasional weekend getaway. Looking to find someone to enjoy what life and Chicago (and other places) has to offer while laughing and learning along the way. I understand some relationships can grow almost instantaneous at a moments notice and I am open to that.

Most recently I have rescued two puppies. Adopting two dogs at once is a very efficient way to remain active.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently enjoying my career (commercial furniture design) and enjoying the travel that comes along with it. I stay active throughout each week for both the physical and mental health benefits - paddle tennis in the winter and paddle boarding in the summer with cycling and resistance training in between. Music has been (and always will be) a large part of my life and I currently stink just a little less at guitar. Update - I still stink but have nicer guitars. The grind will continue and the instrument is a nice substitution for the gardening I can no longer do. More and more I have been out and about seeing live shows and trying new restaurants near the venue as much as possible. I will skip the tunes just to go eat as well.
I’m really good at
Paddle Tennis
Smoking a pork shoulder for 20 hours
Making furniture
Zoning Out
Troubleshooting other people's computers
Playing with kids
Scratching dogs and cats behind the ears
Grocery Shopping
The first things people usually notice about me
Messy Hair, my smile, maybe eyes. Sense of humor if they are slighty twisted.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: mostly biographies lately - David Byrne, Keith Richards. I also have been enjoying some funky graphic novels with my kiddos and the geek in me loves our local comic book store. More of a news, internet, magazine guy. Read both from the left and the right. (from the BBC, Christian Science Monitor, and the NYT to the National Review, Economist, and the Financial Times). I love to know whats going on all around the world but don't like debating it. While I love a good book and enjoy reading, I have a hard time finishing books and have several lying around with bookmarks in them. Lapham's Quarterly is my new favorite.

Movies: Mostly Coen Brothers (especially Big Lebowski) and independent smart films. Loved Pan's Labyrinth and like foreign films. Reading subtitles relaxes me.

Music: Yikes, where do I begin... Kurt Vile, The Who, Rancantours, J.J. Cale, Miles Davis, Phoenix, Zepp, Minute Men, Steely Dan, The War on Drugs, Beck, Live Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, Frank Zappa, Black Keys, Pinback, UO, Albert King, John Coltrane, King Crimson, Primus, Les Claypool, Cat Power, Los Lobos, Jane's Addiction, Fruit Bats, Stan Getz, Sonny Boy Williamson, Rolling Stones, The Radiators, Gram Parsons, The Clash, Emmy Lou Harris, NIN, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Wes Montgomery, Pete Seeger, Bessie Smith, Velvet Underground, Seven Walkers, Furthur, Stan Ridgeway, Talking Heads, Woody Guthrie, Bowie, King Crimson, XTC, Hot Tuna, Pavement, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Uncle Tupelo. Beastie Boys, Phoenix, Little Feat, Roger Waters, J. Mascis, The Jam, Joni Mitchell, Beatles, Bob Marely, Ella Fitzgerald, Meat Puppets, Black Crowes, Richard Thompson, Leo Kottke, Oyster Head, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros

It drives me nuts when Itunes doesn't recognize the CD I'm downloading.

Much more to scribe and the music list will it will surely continue to evolve. I do and will travel extensively for live shows if the timing and venue are groovy. I am very picky about speaker and sound quality as well. My music collection is very important to me and I will take the long way home if it takes me by high end audio joints.

I also definitely consider myself a foodie. Like to play in the high end sphere once in awhile but really like the simple fresh stuff. Mexican, Northern Italian, French Bistro, Vietnamese... I love the dinner date.
