My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
White Sox fan, body modification enthusiast, drinker of black coffee and dark beer (and any other beer as long as it's delicious), eater of bagels and proud Chicagoan.

I was once identified in court as a murderer. No, I'm not a murderer. But someone thought I looked like one.

I'm a villain, a real mixer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure how to combine dog-petting, beer drinking and journalism into the greatest job ever.

When not working my main gig as an editor at a trade magazine, I'm out and about. On a given night, you might find me at a park, watching roller derby, at a local bar that serves delicious beer, out walking and/or playing Frisbee with my dog, listening to some music (live or otherwise) ... you get the idea. I'll try anything once -- or maybe twice.

I'm also an aspiring home-brewer. My first batch of beer was pretty tasty, so hopefully subsequent batches will be even tastier.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Live-band karaoke. Seriously. I can rock a cover of "Back in the USSR" like you wouldn't believe.

- Officiating weddings. I'm an ordained rabbi and can thus officiate weddings, funerals, bar/bat mitzvahs, etc. Weddings are my specialty. Though my ceremonies are quick, they're always a perfect mix of gut-busting laughs and sentimentality. And yes, I can provide references to back up my claims. I have even used the wisdom of Dan Savage in a ceremony.

- Rabble-rousing.

- Copy editing. I dare you to try and sneak an Oxford comma past me.
The first things people usually notice about me

My veins? I was once told I have nice veins. Nothing was said about my arteries. But phlebotomists love me

Maybe that I'm covered in dog hair? It's kind of inevitable. My dog is what I describe as aggressively cuddly. Dog hair cannot be avoided.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My dog
2. Google Calendar
3. Coffee in the morning. And again in the evening. And at some point between the two.
4. CTA card and/or my bike
5. Nerdy podcasts
6. The White Sox
7. A pocket full of pens (at least four at all times).

Yes, that's seven. I'm not a fan of rules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing a book about the Pope. I already have a title picked out: "What does the Pope eat for breakfast (and other questions you'd only dare ask after a few glasses of sacramental wine)?" I'm not even Catholic. But I'm fascinated by the papacy. The Pope is the leader of over a billion Catholics worldwide and yet we know so little about him and the institution of the papacy, which has been shrouded in secrecy for thousands of years. And I love the thought of throwing some light on it.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about how I really have no desire to actually write a book.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be found eating delicious food, drinking delicious beer/spirits, hanging with fantastic people, hanging by myself, hanging with my awesome dog, going to see live music or any combination thereof.

No matter where I spend my Friday, I will be found telling a saucy tale and/or making a little stir.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love drinking beer in the shower.

I want to buy an island off the coast of Alaska, build a house on it and live there. I'll have about 10 dogs and a personal assistant to hunt moose and other wild game for me (and the dogs) to eat.

I'll have a float plane for traveling. I'll spend my days training my dogs for Frisbee competitions and fishing for salmon, cod and other delicious Alaskan seafood.

I'll also probably grow vegetables and brew beer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Must love dogs. And good beer.

Must be GGG.

If you (and your dog, if you have one) want to join me and my pup on a stroll.

If you're cool with beards on guys. I don't always have one, but I like the option.

If you love and use proper grammar. Please know the differences between your/you're, their/there/they're and too/to/two and understand that apostrophes are not to be used to indicate plurals. Also, messages that simply say "your cute" will be laughed at and deleted.

If you're pierced and/or tattooed. Definitely not a requirement, but I do enjoy them.

Please do not message me if you don't know what language is spoken in England. I never thought I would have to make that a caveat. If you want to know why I had to make that a caveat, just ask.
