I came to Green Bay pursuing my career in Radio, and though circumstances may have led me to take a different path, I stay flexible and remain positive.
I'm a 32 yr old college graduate from Minneapolis. Formerly of Madison, and the University of Wisconsin contained therein. After two years of study and lots of fun on the side, pursuing a degree in Communication Arts, I decided to take a year off. Arrived in the Twin Cities and attended Brown College for Radio Broadcasting. Spent nearly two years post-graduation in North Dakota hosting my Morning Show before arriving back in Wisconsin.
That seems to sum up the events of my journey to here, in remarkably few words by my normal standards for storytelling.
No matter what else, I enjoy a good conversation regardless of situation, and I'm always up for random adventures, nights out, or just relaxing with my pups.
In a more general sense though, I'm happy with my life at the moment, have a close circle of good friends, and I'm confident in my future.
As for other talents... the only way to know, is to ask or better yet see for yourself.
But the Internet is not always the most conducive to vocal expression so I'll add that if sight is the sense OKC is getting at... then you may like my eyes (or may not, I don't think I know you well enough yet to make that presumption; I'm just going on past experience).
I also must throw in an appreciative nod to Dan Savage, for we should all be good, giving, and game in every relationship.
From my past, I loved the Redwall series by Brian Jacques when I was younger, one of my first and favorite series of books I read thoroughly, more than once start to finish.
(B) My favorite actors include Kevin Spacey, Sean Connery, Samuel Jackson and many others, but these guys just jump to mind. As for movies, anything Monty Python is amazing, as well as Usual Suspects, Shawshank Redemption, Boondock Saints, American Beauty, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Goodnight and Good Luck, Anchorman, Secretary, Lost in Translation, Waiting, Sin City, Garden State, Reservoir Dogs, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Princess Bride, Office Space, Pi, Spaceballs, V for Vendetta, Thank You For Smoking, Amelie, and clearly... Battlefield Earth lol Travolta's Masterpiece!
(C) I was on the Radio and a Wedding DJ for a few years as well... I've listened to everything short of Techno and Opera just for work... if its ever been on a Top 40 list of most any sort... I've tried to pass it through my ears. But as for a favorite genre... my soul yearns for Classic Rock when I want to just relax and enjoy.
(D) I watch a lot of Food Network and Alton Brown is f*cking amazing... so in general it could be said that I love all sorts of food, including but never limited to: Italian, French, Chinese, Mexican, Vietnamese, Greek, Japanese (Sushi), even Kosher-Vegan/Vegetarian dishes as well (thanks to my wonderful friends back at Ofek Shalom Co-op)... and I'll throw in American though I'm never sure exactly what that is... since even our country is a blend of everyone's diverse heritage, perhaps a casserole and a stew of some sort would symbolically qualify, and I know people could contradict me on this one, but a Burger and Fries or a nice juicy Steak makes you just feel good when you need it...
So I've sampled a lot, but I'll never say I don't like something until I've tried it.
I'll throw in a nod to Insulin here, I'm able to still be alive due to the production of this hormone we Diabetics would be goners without. (fie on my pancreas for quitting out on me back in second grade)
Also, one more... chapstick? lol
"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts" - William Shakespeare As You Like It; Act II Scene VII
I've begun with these two quotes for they are a focus of a lot of my random thoughts. In that I have to look in at myself and my lot in life, and try to figure out just what part I am to be playing... and if I don't like the scene I'm in... there is always the chance for a better role in the next scene. We only show a piece of ourselves to those around us. And that determines how they will view us, and what role we will play first in their thoughts, and perhaps eventually in their lives... So I have to mention this one as well...
"The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right, or pleasantly surprised." - George F. Will
Not a major focus of thought, but certainly something I bring up if people question why I'm a realist and not more blindly optimistic at times. I'm a happy person, I just don't expect much from my fellow man... until proven otherwise of course. I'm no fool, just that realism and pessimism go hand in hand so comfortably it seems
Ok enough of my philosophising
While in High School way back when, I played Trombone in four different school Bands, I sung in two school Choirs, and I performed on stage in over twenty Musicals and Plays of both the school and community theatre variety.
(Aside: I wonder now if I've lost some of the joy that these activities brought me. I still have the chance to express myself on-air every day while I work, but its not really the same. I don't know, maybe I've just not realized what I lost, but I should consider getting back into it just to satisfy my curiosity.)
However all these things just lead up to me saying that I'm thinking about my life, being all introspective, that and my future. I don't quite know where I will end up yet, or what I'll see and experience along the way, and that excites me to some degree, the mystery of it all.
I really am up for anything if given a suggestion, I'd try most anything at least once... and likely twice to be sure
If its just for some chatting... super, and making friends... even better, or to eventually meet up and maybe let it develop into something more serious... only time will tell
