I love this city, grew up in Chicago and I can say that I have built a good life here. I am always trying to learn as a person and I think that the keys to great life are to never get too satisfied with ones self. Mentally it's this that gets me off the bed to the gym...even when it's 6am in the morning or go the extra mile to make something good happen.
I do believe in a balanced approach to life more now then in the past and I am trying to get there. I can be very serious but I do have a highly inappropriate sense of humor, love politics, economics and coffee! Especially coffee..I am looking to cut loose more now and have more fun (there is so much to do in the city) than I have in the past. I am also direct but I have been working on being more thoughtful in delivering the message. A skill not easily acquired when you tend to shoot from the hip.
I grew up being a total geek (yeah I role-played in high school yep I said it) but I also work out and stay fit (I'm not just saying that) I couple of business's and I think I'm doing well for myself.
The easiest way to describe me is dedicated, driven, loyal & self-reliant. However...I can have a biting sense of humor :)
