Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmmm. I'm a structural engineer who works downtown. I am originally
from the south suburbs, and then moved into the city after college.
In addition to my job as an engineer, I'm also working on getting a
masters degree part time. I'm a big fan of the idea that you never
stop learning in life, even if you are finished with school. I have
a huge stack of books that I'm trying to work through, and I try to
keep up with current events as well.
If I had not been an engineer, I probably would have tried to carve
out a career as some kind of musician. Had I tried, I would no
doubt be very poor, but it probably would have been fun. I was in
both band and choir in high school, and also play guitar with some
level of competency. I enjoy watching live music, and have a
special place in my heart for all of the 80s hair bands.
I think that faith and religion are very important, and I think
that is something my future companion would have to embrace as
well. I attend church regularly, but I think that our beliefs
should have a much broader impact than just Sunday mornings.
So this is a pretty dry write-up, but I do have a reasonable sense
of humor, for an engineer, at least.
