Update as of Oct. 17, 2013: I'm relocating from Rockford, Ill. to Madison in November for a new job. Pretty excited about it.
Hi, I'm Collin. I know this is pretty cliche, but I'm basically the most laid back guy out there. It's pretty hard to get under my skin or piss my off. I'm originally from Rockford, Ill., and that's where a great majority of my friends and family still reside. I have a BA in journalism and my primary focus in the world of journalism is sports. I know my profile says I'm a writer, and I am by trade, but my current job doesn't have me writing, which is a bummer. But I do contribute to a blog about the Chicago White Sox (southsideshowdown.com) and it helps me keep my writing chops fresh.
I'm a huge sports fan, but that's not all I'm about. My days off usually consist of going out for drinks with friends. At 26, I can still party like a college kid when the occasion calls, but am perfectly content just chilling and watching a movie or something as well. I love trying different craft beers and bourbons, so if anyone knows the good Madison spots to drink and hang out, I'm definitely game.
I'm incredibly close with my group of friends, as well as my family. I like to think I live a life of morals, but I'm far from perfect. I've gained a bit of weight since college (you'll probably notice in my pictures I'm not the slimmest of guys), but I'm working to get myself back into good shape by eating healthy and working out.
I have an incredibly dry, sarcastic sense of humor and a generally optimistic outlook on everything. I take after my dad in that if something happens that might frustrate you or piss you off, but there's nothing you can do about it, there's no sense in getting angry or whining about it. Like I said: I go with the flow.
I guess that's about it. Writing about myself sucks. Carry on.
