My self-summary
I'm a journalist, a movie and music buff, craft beer drinker, fantasy sports obsessive, native Chicagoan and Settlers of Catan nerd. Let's go see a concert together! Or belt some karaoke! Or anything you're into, I'm game to explore.

Simpsons reference on our first date or your meal is free!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm originally from Chicago but moved out here last August for grad school in Journalism at USC, and I finished in May. Now I write about movies and the entertainment industry at a trade publication.

I go see a lot of concerts, I'm a huge Cubs fan and also love football, basketball and sometimes hockey. I play fantasy football and baseball, I exercise (though I need someone active to kick my butt), I eat out and go to bars and restaurants new and old with friends and family, I play the guitar. I love Settlers of Catan. Somewhat less often, I read, play video games, I ski, run, golf, bike and kayak, and I even dabble on piano.

On a typical Friday night I am
I love spending an evening with friends at a bar with a good craft brew or Jack and Coke in hand. If I'm not there, I'm at the movie theater or at a concert, maybe spending the night watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm on a crazy high level of Candy Crush

You should message me if you thought we had things in common or I made you laugh or if you actually want to talk and get to know each other outside of this stupid profile.
