So why all the moving around, right?? Long story short, with each relocation came a career opportunity, each one significantly larger of a role than the next. The last few opportunities were both very high risk/very high reward, and unfortunately the high risk side of the equation rang true in both cases. I left what I hope to be my final big corporate job in May 2013 (Dallas, TX), and in August 2013 came back to Chicago to take some time off and reconnect with family and old friends. Absolutely loving every part of it so far!
I love to travel, and have been to Europe and Asia on business a number of times over the years. Favorite city to visit: Hong Kong! Ideal vacation: anywhere with a beach! My ideal date would want to travel a lot!
My friends tell me I need to disclose I'm divorced, so...there ya have it. While it was a mutual and respectful process, I learned quite a bit from my first marriage and subsequent divorce, and feel it made me look at relationships much differently (in a good way).
I love unplugged acoustical music, savor taking time to make the perfect cup of fresh ground coffee in the morning, and absolutely adore my 13 year old beagle (she owns me, paws down). While I don't have a large group of friends, those that I grow close to stay friends forever. I'm told I can be uptight at times, though ice cream will always fix it (gummy bear toppings can't hurt either).
As for hobbies, I enjoy short runs (5 miles max), am an Apple product addict, and love walking the pup around town on a nice day. I also like to ride my bike, though don't do it as often as I'd like. I can play frisbee at the park for hours, but more than anything else I love to sail small sailboats (20' or shorter). Catamarans are my favorite. I used to have one, but sold it recently as part of one of my relocations.
So, if you're still reading, that must mean there's something that interests you about a well-established, frisbee-tossing divorced sailor who can easily be bribed with ice cream. Sound like you? drop me a note and tell me a bit about ya!
