My self-summary
Welcome to my internet self-portrait, my name is Steve, and although it is likely not the most brief of all profiles, I hope you enjoy the read.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in Insurance, just purchased my home, and now have quite the list of projects, but I'm excited to tackle them while enjoying the results of my efforts firsthand.

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.
I’m really good at
I'm an extrovert who doesn't require a crowd, but won't turn down a chance to meet new people and try to connect. Theatre, Speaking, Talking with Strangers and basically anything that involves public expression... I can feel comfortable with even on a whim. I'm also reasonably skilled on most electronic gizmos (technical term). I do enjoy the time I spend here (and other places online too... ok... mostly other places because I'm sure you're a lovely person but one can only match so much before random inspiration draws attention away).

As for other talents... the only way to know, is to ask or better yet see for yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice is commented on semi-regularly, which is appropriate as to my overall interests and educational/career path in life.

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).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(A) I'll read most anything and especially if a friend recommends. Some of my favorites include classics like William Shakespeare or Edgar Allan Poe, and more current writers like Terry Pratchett, Dan Brown, David Sedaris... and Jon Stewart (America: The Book is wonderful) to name a few... Giving credit to a former French teacher, for exposing me to Le Petit Prince.

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.
Six things I could never do without
Beyond what is necessary for carbon-based life on this planet... my two dogs, cell phone/communication device, my family...

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
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The new house has provided an abundance of things to work on or plan, so that seems to be floating around in the background of my mind. At work I also may catch myself thinking I'd rather be home with my dogs... I think most pet owners would have to agree with that statement... no matter how much you enjoy your work, there are always times you'd so much rather be with your creatures (regardless of species)
On a typical Friday night I am
... just taking it easy... life is far too short to stress about the small stuff... relaxation and harmony have their place, as does doing completely random sh*t at the drop of a hat... seriously if within a casual conversation a friend were to mention some place they hadn't been in awhile (be it store, restaurant, city, or some friend's house)... I'm apt to suggest and proceed to take a road trip on the spot... If my work schedule allows me to get away, I'll be getting on with getting on

I really am up for anything if given a suggestion, I'd try most anything at least once... and likely twice to be sure
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know why French Fries were named "French Fries", and yet have nothing to do with France... do you?

But really my life is quite the open book, and if you strike up an interesting conversation, I will admit most anything you'd ever care to know.
You should message me if
You enjoy good conversation, or just want to say "Hello". I'm always looking to meet new and interesting people (lol I enjoy seeing different sides of our existence, a people-watcher at heart, knowing more about any and every aspect of the human condition is a goal I've held for many years)

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
The two of us
