What I’m doing with my life
I am a recent graduate from Governors State University’s journalism program. I hope to land a job in sports reporting. While job searching, I am continuing to gain work experience by writing for the Manteno-Peotone-Beecher area which I have covered over the period of five years. My current plans include either entering into Chicago area reporting or joining a public relations firm to pursue the other side of journalism. I long for travel and to visit Prague (family originally came from the area to Chicago in the 1870s), Poland (again, ancestry), and Russia. I am learning how to speak both German and Japanese if my career takes me overseas so I can be in a strong economic environment (and visiting Japan is my number one goal in life).
I’m really good at
-Baseball (I play 1st base - hooray for being left handed!)
-Assembling computers
-Magic the Gathering, board games, video games - basically anything nerdy or geeky
-Pokemon, its an obsession. Been on a journey to be the very best since 1998; now that is commitment,
-May sound cliche but listening and just being a receptive ear to anyone
The first things people usually notice about me
Politeness or,depending on how long I've been letting it grow, my beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Brave New World, Catch 22, 1984, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Ender's Game, A Song of Ice and Fire (series), Lord of the Rings, anything by Kafka, and the Chronicles of Narnia.

Movies: Red Dawn, Scott Pilgrm vs. the World, Anchor Man I & II, Big Lebowski, Rocky Horror Picture Show, LotR Trilogy, Super Troopers, Office Spaces, Tangled, The Breakfast Club, 500 Days of Summer, Silver Lining Playbook, Monty Python, Avengers, Thor series, Batman series, Captain America, Pacific Rim and the Iron Man Series.

Music: Mumford and Sons, Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Rise Against, Nightwish, and The Killers. Main genres are: Indie, heavy metal, rock, and house

Shows: Walking Dead, Dr. Who, Adventure Time, Life on Mars (BBC and American), Supernatural, How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, The League, Game of Thrones, Community, The IT Crowd, Eastbound and Down, and Archer. However, my true passion lies in anime and there are far to many to list on here (just ask and I'll give you the list).

Food: Almost anything except spicy foods.
Six things I could never do without
1. Stable Internet connection
2. Core group of friends
3. Sports (NHL, MLB, NFL)
4. Hobbies (Magic, 40K, Shadowrun, board games)
5. Family
6. Hopes and dreams
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Digesting the world news, where I want to set up roots after graduating (so far Chicago, Atlanta, or Indianapolis), brainstorming ideas for short stories, and analyzing sports topics/stats.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gaming it up in Peotone, watching the latest movies with friends, reading, having some down time, browsing Reddit endlessly (everyday more like it) or sprawling out and going on a spree of show watching online =)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a young child my family and I visited the Museum of Science and Industry. At the time, the Titanic exhibition was on display and there was a "piece" of the ship on display which freaked me out. For the next few years I lived in fear of the hull section crashing through my bedroom wall. Needless to say, the ocean and I do not mix well nor do sunken boats.
