I'm a sculptor. Passionate about my art, but equally passionate about good times, good food (I cook) and the people I'm with. Interests include history, art, photography, archaeology, political science, and travel.
Graduated college in New York with a history degree. Lived in Baltimore for a year doing a postbac at MICA, and just lived the past year in Boston. Spent my summer, working at the YMCA in NYC as an arts camp counselor. Love working with kids.
I love to travel; I have been to 21 countries and hope to visit more. My most recent trip was to India, and hoping to travel more soon.
For books: Im always reading a book or listening to an audiobook. Mostly I like to read historical non-fiction, on a wide range of things from the Taiping Rebellion to the rise and fall of the Zulu kingdom.
TV: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Sopranos, True Detective. BBC also has a lot of great documentaries.
For music I like motown, old school blues, oldies and maybe some disco when I'm driving. Stuff with real funk or soul.
Movies in no order: Training Day, Gladiator, Gangs of New York, Star Wars Series, Wild Wild West, Goodfellas, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Snatch, Fight Club, Lord of the Rings, American History x, Taxi Driver, American Psycho, Trainspotting, Natural born killers, The Departed.

New to Chicago, and would love to grab a drink meet some new people and see where it goes. In my experiences I have learned to not take okcupid too seriously.
