Way down deep, I'm very shallow! That was my witty opener!
My friends would describe me as honest, witty, passionate, and confident. I'm a consultant by profession with a graduate degree in finance, I deal with corporate smartypants (yawn!) all the time and it qualifies as a decent job - but that's just one facet of my personality. Even though financial success/freedom means a lot to me, my life does not rotate around material things. It's all about experiences, not possessions for me.
Hobbies and passions - In ancient Greece, when someone died, they asked only one question - did he have passion? I believe in making my life count - as Robert Frost's poem famously reads "I've got promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep". Fulfillment comes to me when I am able to learn something new, overcome a challenge in front of me, or do well in something I am passionate about. Worry not, if I like you I will make time for you - because love is the biggest passion of them all. When you meet me, you will find an easy going, jovial person on the exterior but I do have my priorities in order and know when to step it up like a man. Loyalty and honesty are huge for me so please have them tattooed on your arms.
Besides all the great stuff I mentioned, I love reading,dancing, watching movies, learning different cultures/languages, travelling, and trying little gems of restaurants that Chicago has to offer. The usual stuff!
Good luck in your search.
