Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cincinnati native here. Most recently, I lived in Chicago for the
past 6 years for school and work and just moved back. My entire
family lives here, which has made it a good and easy transition
with lots of good niece and nephew time.
I'm an active person and outdoorsy. I'm a runner, I love hiking and
recently started rock climbing. For the latter, I've only been
indoors and I'm really bad at it. Apparently you need something
called "upper body strength".
I grew up with an older sister and two older brothers. My brothers
adopted me as there youngest brother when I was born, so I'm good
at shagging baseballs, one on one basketball, one on one wiffle
ball, frisbee golf, basically anything that can done in the back
yard and turned into high level competition but in the end it
doesn't really matter who wins.

Currently working as a freelance graphic designer who is trying to
learn the IT/programming/web side of design. As someone who is not
an IT person, it has been both a challenging and rewarding
process... and I would recommend Aspirin to anyone who is doing the
same thing. I also work in retail for when times are slow with
design. Right now I can have a super slow month or a super busy

I'm good at cooking. I love staying in on Friday night with friends
or alone and taking time to cook.

cooking, make something new or something that takes some time. But
last Friday I went rock climbing for a while with a co-worker.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know how to use a comma appropriately, maybe you noticed. I
should have paid more attention in the third grade.
