My self-summary
I am 29 currently living in the wonderful suburbs of Chicago. I was born and raised here, and find it to be a pretty nice place. I went to college at Purdue and studied history.

I like my craft beer, whiskey, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs, camping, fishing, and all the outdoor stuff. Historical programming/documentaries are great as long as they aren't produced by the History Channel. I enjoy both crude and intelligent humor because both have a time and place. I am also big into volunteer work and sit on the board of several community groups. Sleeping in when I have some time off is awesome. I love laughing when shit goes wrong or right, and not taking things too seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
Over the last six months I have been the office manager at a restaurant/bar in the northern suburbs. It consists of the usual office paperwork an HR stuff, but a lot of random stuff gets thrown my way. The great thing about it all is that it never gets boring, and the bar is right downstairs, (if needed) to relax at once you're done with a long day. I'd like to look at getting back into some volunteer work after taking a little break last year. A somewhat active but quiet social life is also looking pretty good, but I'm not too old to always stay in each night.
I’m really good at
Trivia, Googling things, explaining the three sisters method of agriculture in ancient Native American society. I can also do all sorts of fun survival stuff in the woods. The zombie apocalypse doesn't worry me a bit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Yep, that is a human right there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Authors: There are quite a few. East of Eden, Crime and Punishment, Enders Game series, The Zombie Survival Handbook, The Dexter Books, Things Fall Apart, Riverworld, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Eaters of the Dead, The Hammer of God, Flowers for Algernon, Artemis Fowl series, Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, Ernest Hemmingway, Isaac Asimov, History, Comics (yes they count), Sci-fi, Fantasy, and mystery. There are many more but the brain is spazzing out at the moment.

Television: Trailer Park Boys, Star Trek, South Park, Rick & Morty, Battlestar Galactica, Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, Archer, West World, The Walking Dead, Everything Whedon, Kids in the Hall, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, Fringe, Supernatural, Reno: 911!, Stargate, Mystery Science Theater 3000, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Flight of the Conchords, and Futurama. I mean, there is no way to list them all. Jesus, I'd really have to include "Dinosaurs" aka the perfect animatronic show of the 1990's if you want me to be REALLY specific on this one.

Movies: Super Troopers, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn (the others as well), Ghostbusters (I&II), Dr. Strangelove, Finding Nemo, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Star Wars, Citizen Kane, Rashomon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Red Dragon, The Shawshank Redemption, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Moulin Rouge, The Jersey Trilogy, Children of Men, Big Fish, Quentin Tarantino, and Bad Santa. I worked as a projectionist for 5 ½ years so there are some not on this list. Well, a lot of them actually. (I hope you see a pattern here)

Music: Umphrey’s McGee, Moe., Keller Williams, Yonder Mountain String Band, Stevie Wonder, Toto, Talking Heads, Huey Lewis and the News, Phish, some Country (Shhhhhh...), Victor Wooten, Rush, Grateful Dead, The Beatles, J-Roc, and Rage Against the Machine.
Six things I could never do without
1. Some kind of motorized vehicle. It will most likely be a van. Say what you will, but they are stupid versatile, comfortable as hell, and the only car based canvas that can contain the wicked wizard fighting a dragon mural that I want on my daily driving machine.
2. Something to read. However, it has to be at least 10X the quality of any Daily Mail article. That might set the bar too low...
3. My kitty. He can be pretty neat at times, even if he is a pretentious dick.
4. My phone because I have been stranded before and it is a terrifying situation.
5. An asthma inhaler because I need it to live.
6. A really nice pen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How? Also, should I go with a beard this quarter or be clean shaven?
On a typical Friday night I am
I used to work every Friday for over 6 years, so I went out and mostly partied hard and fast to catch up with everyone if I even got there before everyone crashed. Now I stay in more often, or end up working from home some reason. When I do have a night that is free, I try and be active. During the summer months, I may be out camping, fishing, or doing something a bit more social with a group. During the winter months I might be out snowmobiling, ice fishing, playing hockey, or camping. It really depends on the week and opportunity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can cook a mean quiche. (Thanks Pinterest)

I let the dogs out...
You should message me if
You find history interesting, like to laugh, and are cool with the nerdier things in life.

You're bored or want to have a drink sometime.
