My self-summary
Chicago native that enjoys hahas, dancing often, and a third thing.

I know all the best late night eateries. If you're hungry at three in the morning, I'm the best food sherpa.

Albums over songs always.

My eyes light up whenever someone says something is broken. I love challenges and always want to fix everything. Maybe not deep-seated issues with step moms, but whatever, I'll bring my toolbox.

Aggressively leftist, occasionally not nice about it.

Most times, all I give a shit about is what I need to do to hug a baby elephant.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an art and antique dealer. I loved art history, sifting through heaps of junk, and befriending old people, so this was a natural career choice. I get to handle and shop for art and furniture all day PLUS it lets me hook up friends with excellent decor.

Otherwise, my current projects include:
- Restoring some drilled up and trashed Eames DCMs, it was heartbreaking how unloved they were.
- Painting a 1:1 scale portrait of Manute Bol (this is a stupid stupid idea)
- Hunting for a Larry Krystkowiak Bulls jersey, if such a thing exists
- Figuring out the feasibility of making a tombstone coffee table exactly like the one Patty and Selma prematurely made for Homer. Not for anyone I know personally, I want to make one with Homer Simpson on it
- engaging in a rap beef with my little brother
I’m really good at
When I'm eating a handful of somethings, like almonds, and if I drop one, I'm really good at catching whatever I dropped before it hits the ground. This might be my best skill, which, sadly, is completely contingent on first failing at eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
Streaks of grey or whatever Swatch I'm wearing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How hard it would be to steal a Magritte or Kehinde Wiley
- How to get furniture polish/blood/pizza stains out of my shirt
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've watched enough Frasier where I now feel like I have the authority to competently psychoanalyze everything.
You should message me if
- you think Bodie was a better character than Omar
- you will let me drag you to a different antique fair or flea market every warm Sunday
- you know more than half of the current Supreme Court justices or are capable of quickly and seamlessly making up hilarious yet convincing names if you don't
- you don't think it's too dorky that I downloaded, and regularly use, a chess clock app
- you want to trade pins and buttons
