I'm a MacGyver of life. I can cook a 3-course meal with my favorite Le Creuset, a cast iron skillet and chef’s knife. Of course, I can also turn two $20s into a nice dinner that’s delivered to me by a gentleman I’ve never met before, who called twice because he couldn’t tell the difference between Lincoln and Lincoln Park West. Probably my fault.
I adapt well to any situation. From presenting my latest market entry strategy to the suits in the boardroom, to hustling hipsters at ping-pong at the Happy Village, to banging my head at the In Flames concert, I’m always right where I belong. Well, as far the concert, I have to admit that I don't have the minimum level of anger and black clothing.
My best friends know that I’m an introvert, but most people have no idea. When I’m out, I give 100%. Unfortunately, sometimes, the next day I feel like I’ve given a bit too much.
My work in management consulting keeps me busy, but I still find time to play tennis, listen to live music, go to the Bulls game, or take a random trip to NYC to visit my friends. I like nerdy stuff like math, economics/finance, Excel, and oxford commas.
What stays constant is my relationship with family and friends, my open-mindedness, and my ability to not take things too seriously, including myself. What I can’t live without is a challenge and a kind-spirited argument.
