My self-summary
My name's Pete. I've never really tried the online thing before. Originally from Cleveland, I've been in Chicago since 2006. I'm a college graduate who plays guitar, collects vinyl records, and loves photography.

I also recently bought a motorcycle because I thought that would be more fun than owning a car. I forgot that a car might be a bit more fun than a motorcycle during the cold Chicago winter. Bummer. (Not really's still way more fun than a car.)
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Loyola. Since then I've been working at the airport. I typically tell people I work in some big counter terrorism program for the US Department of Homeland Security, which technically isn't a lie, but really I'm one of those guys in the blue shirts at the security checkpoint that the national news likes to say unflattering things about. It was the first job that I saw open after I graduated, so I took it. It's not my lifelong career by any means, and actually I've just started grad school for Elementary Education.
I’m really good at
Taking pictures, playing guitar, and being sarcastic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. They can be pretty blue, and I've been told they have these cool spider web patterns in them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really have a favorite book. Don't get me wrong, I love to read, but I don't have a favorite book...and I refuse to stoop to the level of picking something from an old high school reading list and saying that it's my favorite. I read a lot of non-fiction. Well I read a lot of fiction too, so that doesn't really mean anything. I've been reading a lot of Hemingway and Bukowski lately.

Movies...too many to list. I'll watch anything that makes me laugh. Office Space is my personal favorite.

TV Shows: Seinfeld, 24, Storage Wars, WWE Raw (it's my guilty pleasure), X-Files, House of Cards, Arrested Development, The West Wing, Breaking Bad

Music: 90s rap (Dr. Dre, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Bone Thugs) and anything guitar oriented. As a guitar player, I often listen to the classics...Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, Queen.
As for new stuff: Yuck, The Black Keys, The Killers, Opeth, The Demon Beat (a small Garage Rock band from West Virginia, definitely check them out), Wild Flag, Muse. My personal favorite right now is The Joy Formidable. I actually got to meet them the first time I saw them.
The six things I could never do without
Camera (digital AND film)
Fender Stratocaster
Vinyl Collection (I just realized how much that makes me sound like a hipster)
My motorcycle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
With all of the hit songs The Who had, why did CBS only put out 4 versions of CSI?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working until 7:30pm. Then after that you might find me at a bar with some friends, at the movies, or in my room watching Netflix if it's been a long day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
-I sleep with a teddy bear that I only bought a few months ago. He's a little panda, and his name is Leo.

-My favorite color is red, only because Jason was my favorite power ranger.

-I used to think Sigmund Freud was actually the name of the two guys in Vegas with the tiger.
You should message me if
You're one of those rare girls that doesn't mind guys under 6 feet tall.
