I was born in Chicago on the South side. I grew up in Minneapolis, in the Uptown area. I moved to Milwaukee in 2007.
I've been a graphic designer and I've run my own business since 1986. I think a lot about anything and everything; I have a BA in philosophy. I enjoy conversation, and I'll talk about anything (even politics). I'm extremely candid and not afraid to share my personality. I have a wry sense of humor, but I'm not above silliness. I seem to have a knack at getting away with saying the things that others only think -- it's a blessing and a curse.
I write songs and poetry, and sing constantly. I sing in the halls, at the market, on the sidewalk, at the mall -- I sing. I enjoy the arts in (almost) all forms.
I'm an amateur photographer.
I like to cook and eat out. I'm happy to go to the local dive or a 5-star restaurant. I'm comfortable dressed to the nines, or hanging out in jeans.
I play golf when I can. I'm handy with power tools and I'm not intimidated by a large project.
I like to take aimless roadtrips.
I care about other people's feelings. I'm thoughtful and considerate.
I loathe stupidity and greed, thoughtlessness and callousness. I look around me and wonder what has happened to the world I grew up in? When did the bar get set so low? I hold myself to very high standards. I do the best I possibly can ALL the time.
