I was born and raised a country kid on a grain farm. My home county, Lafayette, is the only one in Wisconsin that has no stop lights, so that should give you an idea of just how rural it is! However, I've always felt like a big city kinda person at heart.
I've been lucky to have the opportunity to travel around the world. I have been to the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Mexico, Canada, and last summer I lived in Germany. Now I'm back in Milwaukee.
I love people who are good conversationalists and who are up for a good debate, as long as we can disagree but still get along! I always have time for anyone who has something to offer intellectually. It doesn't have to be real highbrow stuff, but it's nice to chat with people who keep themselves informed with what is happening in the world.
I enjoy reading when I have the time, both fiction and non-fiction. I also love video games but school has been getting between me and quality frag time. I love all sorts of movies and now that I have Netflix I'm catching up on my list of unseens. I also try to make a habit of going to the gym several times a week to keep from getting too spongy.
I have a little nerd side as well. I use Ubuntu Linux as my operating system (props to anyone who knows what that is) and I used to work for tech support in college. However, I do know when to turn it off when I'm around the non-technical so I don't bore them to death.
Besides all that, I'm real and honest and there's much more to me if you care to find out!
Photography is a hobby of mine. I love going out with my DSLR just taking shots, tweaking them in Lightroom, and seeing what turns out well. I've been lucky to have done some traveling so I've collected many photos from abroad but also many from Milwaukee that I'm proud of. I also own a drone which has been a lot of fun to play around with and take photos with.
