I grew up in a tiny town in Wisconsin, went to school in Madison and have been enjoying Chicago for the last two years.
I have a constant urge to travel; I always try to see and experience new things. I typically have about three or four trip ideas at any given time.
I enjoy long walks, cutting wood, playing my guitar, people watching and porch drinking.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a field service engineer, which means that I get to travel anywhere and everywhere and typically on short notice.
I’m really good at
Making terrible jokes that only I laugh at.
Connect four. That's not a joke, I am really good at connect four.

TV: Lost, Breaking Bad (I like chemistry), Parks and Rec, No Reservations ...anything I can binge watch on Netflix.
Books: A lot, just ask.
Food: Anything but grapefruit.
The six things I could never do without

new places to see
an empty stool in a quality dive bar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to best bring back old phrases like flim flam, kerfuffle, and fetch.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies from week to week. I like to go out and have a good time drinking with friends, but I'm also perfectly happy staying in and waking up at 4 am to Netflix asking me if I'm still watching New Girl. If I'm on the road then I'll drink some of Bota Box's finest cabernet and then get to bed early so I can work in the morning.
