My self-summary
I’m lucky enough to have the best job in the entire world. Now you may be asking yourself, “Did he really just claim to have the best job in the world?” I absolutely did. I’m an activity leader at Systems Unlimited. As an activity leader I plan and execute day program activities for the people with cognitive disabilities. In reality I’m a designer of paper airplanes, a potato battery aficionado and aspiring artist. The job is extremely rewarding and I look forward to work on a daily basis. That's not all ladies not only am I gainfully employed but I also have my own car!!

As an advocate for the people I work with at Systems Unlimited, I've become increasingly more politically active and have worked opposition to the governor's plan to privatize medicaid.

In my free time I volunteer as a youth soccer coach for Iowa City Kickers. Its been a truly wonderful experience. I'd always heard kids were sponges and watching how quickly the absorb knowledge continues to surprise me. I've really become interested in yoga lately. I find it extremely relaxing. I love the sound of plastic cracking against trees on a warm summers evening. The only thing better is the jangle of the chains just before the disc drops into the basket or the way the disc dances in the breeze just before it turns on its side and plummets to the ground. I’m willing to play disc golf anytime. My favorite course is peninsula or Ace Run as I believe “they” are calling it now. Music is a passion of mine.

I’m a collector of books and vinyl albums. Second hand stores are wonderful sifting through hundreds of albums just to stumble across The Kinks Greatest Hits or Allman Brothers at Fillmore East. As for my book collection it grows faster than I can read them and I’m constantly running out of space on my bookshelves. None of this has hindered my compulsion to compile books in an effort to rival the nearest library.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to help the players on my soccer team best prepare for high school athletics while continuing to have fun.

A blending of cross country skiing and disc golf, similar to the Biathlon. Yet instead of skiing and shooting the athletes would ski and play a round of disc golf. I know genius right.
On a typical Friday night I am
You can find me hanging out with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I teared up when Jon Stewart announced he was stepping down from the Daily Show.
