So I'm a conservative gay--and the older I get, the more I realize
that's pretty unusual, especially given that the general population
seems to have forgotten what it means to be a conservative (it
doesn't mean being a Republican and it doesn't mean being against
gay rights!) I seem to have an easier time than most accepting that
I may not meet others expectations, and that doesn't really bother
me any (unless it's my boss!) I'm quick-witted, sarcastic,
laid-back, fun-loving, and intellectual. I prefer people with some
quirks--just not too many! I'm a realist and can't stand whiners or
the utopia lovers. Life is what it is: let's make the most of it!
I am talkative, discerning, and varied
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my MBA, so now begins the process of figuring out
how best to USE it. I currently work in the Quality Improvement
Department for UMHS, and also as a communications consultant and
trainer on the side. In my spare time, I'm active with the Jaycees,

Music: I like esoteric stuff like Kate Bush and Jeff Buckley, love
listening to good classical music that I can conduct in my living
room with whatever miscellaneous object is most handy, and I enjoy
most popular music. If it has a good beat, is singable, and doesn't
sound like distorted garbage, I probably like it. However, I'm
horrible at remembering lyrics--unless, of course, it's a song I
Food: Well, I like food. Polish, Italian, and French heritages kind
of took over while growing up, and my mom was an excellent cook,
so, I LOVE food is probably more accurate. I think going to a great
restaurant and trying something new can be a fun social experience.
Food is meant to be enjoyed: someone needs to hurry up and develop
that pill so we can eat what we want and not have to worry about
The six things I could never do without
Great shoes, my iPad, my wallet, a water bottle, music, and time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What motivates people...
On a typical Friday night I am
At the movies or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think I could ever have too many pairs of shoes--its my
