My self-summary
I'm an upbeat guy that's just enjoying each day.

I'm an explorer at heart. I love a good night at home with a movie, but I just need to get out and travel or try something new regularly.

I try to always get new people in my circle of friends, while not a social butterfly, an evening of making new friends is one of my favorites.

I love to tinker with gadgets, I'm an Electrical Engineer.

I always have to keep learning new things, I hate to be stagnant in life, reading, taking classes, so much to learn!

I have strong opinions about matters and while I may disagree with you, I will respect your opinion.

I enjoy surprising people by doing more than intended, once I was supposed to come up with a simple project like clearing some brush and built a new park instead.

I find my passion is getting out in the community and finding projects to become involved in to improve it. I'm still trying to find my niche in Chicago but I love to teach and work to help people.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Software Engineer working at a manufacturing firm in the West Loop. When not working I've really gotten into weightlifting, teaching myself to cook a variety of foods, making plans for the weekend, hosting parties for friends, take weekly Swing Dance lessons, getting out in the city, playing with some personal technical projects, or seeing what ways I can get involved in the community.
I’m really good at
♫ Making really ridiculous ideas seem awesome
♪ Pulling off said ideas (I'm looking at you Sparky the Corgi!)
♫ Cooking Breakfast (Eggs Benedict is my specialty)
♪ Rubik's Cubes
♫ Grilling
♪ Spoiling other people's children and pets
♫ Arranging parties so everyone I know is always having a good time on a weekend
The first things people usually notice about me
are my glasses and my laugh.

The six things I could never do without
★ My goals
★ My well-worn leather jacket
★ A pocketknife because I'm an Eagle Scout
★ Computers and how they make the world better
★ Laughter, who doesn't love it?
★ My friends and my family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My goals and ambitions, what the next step is to achieve them, and looking forward to the next time I can hang out with my friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
inviting over a group of friends to my place for burgers and board games, or going out to a party. Let's head out and see what happens, I'm up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may or may not have Bear, my 25-year-old teddy bear, sitting next to my bed.
