I am a happy, healthy, active and fit guy who's into getting out
and about and living life. I think of myself as pretty laid back
and easy to get along with. Truth be told, I'm kind of a goofball,
really. I am also unapologetically sassy and sarcastic, and I
expect the fun-spirited jabs to fly back and forth with regularity.
You better be able to dish it out as well as you take it!
What I’m doing with my life
My career is stable and rewarding, kids are amazing and inspiring,
and friends and family are wonderfully supportive and enriching.
I'm in a good place, but also at a point where having someone to
enjoy it all with would make everything that much better.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at laughing at myself (and there's plenty of
material there, trust me on this), and finding the humor in life.
Life is too short to sweat the little stuff.
You should also know that I'm prototypically left-brained -- very
rational, logical, and analytical. Sometimes (often? usually?) to a
fault. You will tease me mercilessly when you realize how often I
create a spreadsheet (or several) before making an important (or
not so important) decision. But they are almost always very
well-informed and thought-out decisions. "Pragmatic" is my middle
name. That's not to say I can't be impulsive and spontaneous at
times... just try me!
I work out a lot -- running, cycling, gym, etc., so I suppose you
could say I'm pretty adept at breaking a sweat.
The first things people usually notice about me
You would be better able to answer this one than I am! My guess
would be, how easygoing and down to earth I am, and that I work
hard to stay in shape physically.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to name, but I'll pick a few at random:
A Prayer for Owen Meany
Jon Stewart / Stephen Colbert shows
Ballpark / Super Bowl Party eats
The six things I could never do without
Exercising / playing sports
Nachos / Buffalo Wings (tie)
Seeing the Cubs win the World Series (OOPS! That's something I will
*always* do without apparently!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the people in my life happy, and keep them laughing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friends and I have Badger men's hockey tickets... many of my Friday
nights are spent at the Kohl Center.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I can only hope to be as good a dad for my kids as my dad was
for me and my brother. (Mom you rock too!)
You should message me if
You should message me if you are a like-minded, confident and
independent woman that's also enthusiastic and optimistic about the
world we live in, and the people in it.
