My self-summary
I'm on my second tour of duty living in Chicago. Originally from Michigan, and also spent some time in DC for awhile (and in my experience it was nothing like House of Cards). I'm looking to find an awesome person who I want to spend my time with. You know, all the cliché stuff about going out but also spending time on the couch watching movies? I'm into all that.

I work at technology company and while I love my job, it's definitely not all that I am. Michigan boy at heart- I appreciate a great sense of humor-- I love to enjoy life, shoot nerf guns at innocent coworkers, and find ways to make every day fun. I also finding myself referencing an old Simpsons episode about once a day. I'm not sure how it happens so much, but it does.

I'm really into my Detroit Sports teams, and bike riding has become a new hobby of mine. I'm also teaching myself how to cook, and overall I've been pleasantly surprised with the results.

I live my life by just trying to be a good person.

Random facts: I'm terrible at staring contests, I'm into brightly colored socks, and I once actually saw Ben Stiller at a museum.
What I’m doing with my life
I talk to people for a living. Some say I have a moviefone voice, but it's probably my hearty laugh that distinguishes me.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How life is too short to take yourself seriously
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out with my friends, maybe at a dive bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I asked two of my female friends for help on this profile-- I'm trying to make a good impression.

Also, I listen to a fair amount of bad music unironically.
You should message me if
You think we could have a fun conversation over wings and beer-- or that you could school me in a debate about why you would never eat wings or beer. You appreciate a wide variety of music. You don't take yourself too seriously. You'd love to root along the Detroit Pistons with me. Or, you're curious to know why I once bought 30 animal print shirts from a Wal-Mart for work.
