I was born and raised in Detroit and lived in Cleveland for four years before moving to Chicago in July 2012. Graduated from Michigan State in 2007 with a degree in engineering. Currently a Civil Engineer for Peoples Gas working on a team designing and installing a major upgrade to the city's gas distribution system.
I'm a pretty straight forward and laid back kind of guy. I sometimes can come off as kind of shy when I first meet people, but quickly warm up after getting to know people a little more.
I really enjoy traveling and just got home from a 17 day trip to Germany, Ireland, Czech Republic, and Denmark. Oktoberfest definitely lived up to the hype!
I really enjoy photography and have also been teaching myself guitar for the past couple years.
I'm also pretty good at remembering random facts about people or history.
