My self-summary
I like these things:
Passion, Music, Creating, Nature, Adventuring, Climbing stuff, dancing...

I'm a pretty easy going person, I like to have fun and act goofy. I can be sarcastic and I tend to have a dark sense of humor. At times I'm also very serious and hard headed--I'm a skeptical person and question everything.
I like women with similar interests. I'm not interested in drama and I also feel that honesty is one of the most important things in a relationship as well as cuddling and hugs--also very important:)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an artist and have been since I was four--professionally trained (6 years of college, BFA from Webster University) and I'm currently finishing a new body of work (large scale figurative oil paintings). The plan is to shop this body of work around to different galleries in Chicago. In the mean time-- I am currently a Marketing Coordinator for a Real Estate firm and I really enjoy it--the people I work with are great.
