I'm outgoing and engaging. Quiet, shy, meek...not me. If we're on the same wavelength, we'll have a lot of fun.
My philosophy: Stay positive even when the odds are trying to convince you not to. Be kind and fair to everyone you meet. We're on this ball of mud and water hurling though space together...let's make the best of it.
I'm a futures options trader by day. Does that sound vague and clandestine? It is! And don’t stereotype. In this case, Chicago + Trader does not = jackass!
None of my pics are from eight years, 80 pounds or 80 cruise ship buffets ago. Although wait, one is from about six years ago now that I look at them. Can you guess which one?
Despite having a healthy independent libertarian streak, family and my friends are very important to me. I have a diverse set of friends. I wish my brother and sister were still closer. They've lived in Chicago, but are now scattered around the world. My sister lives with her husband and the world's cutest nephew in Istanbul and my brother is in the birthplace of the Arab Spring, Tunisia.
I've lived abroad too, for around seven or eight years of my life. I've traveled a lot. I've been to at least 30 countries, mostly in Europe.
