My self-summary
Hi. My name is Tony. I am a single man from the Western burbs of Chicago, IL. I am laidback, down-to-earth yet very focused regarding the pursuit of my professional ambitions. At the end of the day, I just try to exhale, decompress, and laugh whenever I can. After all, Life is to be enjoyed and lived passionately to the fullest.

I like and admire sincere, funny, intelligent, ambitious, creative, adventurous, honest, independent and confident women of all ethnicities. Please feel free to send me a message!

“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.” Far too often we travel through life on autopilot, going through the motions, accepting what is, and having every day pass like the one before it. -- Jack London
What I’m doing with my life
I am just trying to do the very best that I can while taking as many risks as possible without hurting my fellow human beings. Life is not meant to always do the "safe" or pragmatic thing or take conventional paths already well trodden by everyone else. It's time to unleash and realize the reservoir of talent at my disposal. Strive to be Great and do significant things; when it is attainable. Do not fear or shy away from it. Grasp the opportunity with both hands and wield it. You only get 1 time around on this Earth therefore, I say this stage of my life shall be dedicated to living fearlessly and enjoying the adventure. Besides, I like the clear, panoramic view leading from the vanguard affords the true Pioneer.
I’m really good at
Anticipating problems and events before they happen.
Making people laugh and feeling good about themselves.
Trying to see the other person's point of view.
Being a good friend.

How I may better serve to help/aid others.

Ways in which I can truly make my mark in this world and perhaps leave behind a constructive legacy that is respected & admired.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully if everything falls cosmically into place WE will be hanging out! Until then, you can usually find me kicking back at home, venturing out socially, or hanging out with my friends and their kids engaged in several of the following hobbies and interests:

You should message me if
You are the open-minded, bold, and adventurous type who likes to meet new, funny and interesting people from all walks of life and believes Life is to be truly lived and experienced. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Tis the journey and not the destination. Aww c'mon, worse comes to worst - you wind up with several scintillating chapters for your future-to-be New York Times Bestselling memoirs! (wink)
