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 someone saying 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.

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 antique/art dealer, mostly dealing in paintings and furniture. It's a lively profession and I get to look at beautiful things all day.

Current projects:
- Recaning a shelf on a Poul Jensen side table, it's a beaut
- 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
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.

Currently, I'm all about...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How hard it would be to steal a Magritte or Kehinde Wiley.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out.
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
- a long conversation about Ghostface Killah's greatness sounds like fun
- 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
