Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have lived in Madison for most of my life, but I've also lived in
New England/East Coast and in the Southwest. Every time I've moved
away, I've realized that Wisconsin is in my bones and I need to
come back home. Of course, I am also a big fan of the Packers and
I have worked in education and politics and have to say that I
prefer politics. I'm actually fairly earnest about various
political topics and am inclined to get involved with movements or
issues that are important to me. In general, I like to feel like I

I can appreciate both "high" and "low" culture. I love museums and
dive bars and places in between.
I really like sports. I love watching sports on TV or in person,
even if I don't know all the rules or strategy. Caveat: I don't

My schedule can be pretty intense. I have a goofy little daughter
who is pretty much the coolest, and she takes much of my time. At
the moment, I travel for my job, so I'm usually out of town for at
least a couple days a week. I also play Roller Derby, which
requires a lot of practice in order to both be safe on skates and
to dominate on the track (heh). For the record, derby is the best
sport I've ever played.
I am an unabashed Star Wars Nerd. I even have a tattoo to prove it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly, I'm trying to make sure my kiddo grows up to be a well
adjusted person. Other than that, I'm enjoying little things in
life. I'm lucky to be in a field, professionally, that I like. I am
happy to have found a sport that I like and encourages me to push

Yikes. I have no idea. I guess you'll have to tell me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My kid (and rest of my family. Is it cheating to add this
5. My skates
6. Blankets (I love them, even if I'm not cold)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Voynich Manuscript. And how I managed to become a Chris Kluwe
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I suppose I don't have a typical Friday night. Some nights I spend
with my kid, playing games/watching movies and calling it a night
early. When she isn't with me, I like being social and seeing
friends around town. Very descriptive, I know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

When I get nervous, I can't stop talking.
