My self-summary
I'm a man who knows exactly what I want, but I can also let the winds take me where they may. That's why, after I graduated from high school in Springfield, IL, I moved up to Chicago to pursue my career in Audio Acoustic Engineering at Columbia College. Where I met a few close friend and continue my IT career.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a 9 to 5 (give or take a hour or so) I.T. man for a German based technology company. After work, I go home, throw on some NPR and cook dinner.

I love traveling. I've been all over Europe as well as the Caribbean. I also love brewing my own beer while hanging out with my friends and going for long bike rides along the lake.
I’m really good at
Fixing anything! Whether its creating my own bunny ears to receive the television feed from the Sears Tower or an automatic food dispenser to feed my cat, my drug in life is troubleshooting problems.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm an incredible listener.

I go with the flow and make no plans.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm kind of a Sci-Fi aficionado, so I love shows like Doctor Who, Fringe, Carl Sagan's Cosmos & The X Files. I also love comedies like Freaks and Geeks and Louie.

As for my musical taste, if it rocks, I dig it. Neil Young is the greatest musician ever. I also like a lot of contemporary stuff like Wilco, Ryan Adams and Arcade Fire.

I tend to like the classics when it comes to movies. Jaws, Star Wars, The Breakfast Club and Stand by Me.

Recently, I've read a book from probably one of the most accessible scientific author, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I found 'The Pluto Files' a illuminating read on a GOOFY topic. Next, my current go to book for airline travel has to be, 'What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions'.
The six things I could never do without
My cat, my friends and family and a good stout microbrew.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The vastness of the universe.

How this city[Chicago] is a wonderful place to live.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends, grabbing a few drinks with co-workers or at a Thai restaurant.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll just have to call me up and find out. ;)
You should message me if
You have a positive outlook on life.
