Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm 34 and relocated back to Chicago in March 2015. Prior to
Chicago it sorta went like this:
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 gig in May 2013 (Dallas, TX) and lead the
operations team for a small family owned business in a field I
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).
In addition, while I absolutely adore kids, and look forward to
every time I hear my nephews and nieces say 'Uncle Scott', I do not
want kids of my own. Sorry ladies!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a long 10+ years climbing the corporate ladder, working long
hours, traveling, and spending nights working, I'm now enjoying the
fruits of my labor...just became part-owner of a company in an
industry I love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) tossing a frisbee straight
3) thinking one step ahead of the dog!
4) parallel parking
5) being punctual (if I'm not 5 mins early, I'm 5 mins late)
6) numbered lists
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I don't read too many books, and only seem to finish books about
dogs. Marley and Me was terrific, as was The Art of Racing In the
Rain. I enjoyed the Harry Potter books as well. I read Lovely Bones
about 8 years ago too, which was also a good read.
I just finished reading Po Bronson's "What Should I Do With My
Life", which is an incredibly inspirational book full of short
stories on how people changed the trajectory of their life at
pivotal moments and went after their passion. Really great read!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my dog
2) flip flops and jeans
3) a shoreline nearby
4) fresh brewed coffee
I'm all out of ideas at 4. Low maintenance??
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to design my home...I'm creatively challenged. If you are good
with home design, it's a major plus! I'm also always thinking of
new business ideas. Rarely do I go after them in full, but I'll
spend a few bucks investigating. It's a fun hobby.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with good friends...dinner then drinks to relax and let
loose. You won't see me bar-hopping but once every few months.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm going to be an absolute emotional disaster when my dog
goes...don't tell anyone though, gotta maintain that tough manly
