I'm a Down-To-Earth, Easy Going, Mid-Western Guy who tries not to sweat the small stuff and take life too seriously. I grew up Kalamazoo, MI which is in Southwest Michigan (aka....The Mitten) my entire life. After I graduated from High School I went to Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI and received my Bachelors in Business and Finance in 2011. I moved to Chicago in August 2013 because I wanted to get out of Michigan and meet some new people and experience new things and so far there has been no regrets. I have an apartment in the Gold Coast just a couple of blocks away from Lincoln Park and Oak Street Beach with a pretty nice view of downtown Chicago. I currently work for a mid-size IT and Management Company as an Operation Manager on the 28th floor of the John Hancock Center. It is a good job for now but I want to get my MBA soon and then go into either Investment Banking or Consulting once I get my degree. About 4 or 5 times a week I like to go to the gym and work out or go out running. Also I really enjoy going out and traveling. A couple of years ago I went out to California and visited Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and a couple of other places in both Northern and Southern California. This past summer I went to Europe for a couple of weeks and visited family. And next summer I am trying to plan a big trip to both Paris and London. Even though I am pretty focused on my career right now and working a lot of hours I try to go out as often as I can in the city and in the suburbs with my friends. I like to find new bars, clubs, restaurants, and museums in the city and in the suburbs to check out but I can also stay in on a Saturday night and watch a movie on Netflix with a cute girl. Feel free to message me 😀
