My self-summary
Disclaimer: If you live in Chicago and I'm interested, the expectation is I make the effort to come to you. I would never expect someone who lives downtown to come out to the burbs. I live out here cause I work out here. I have a car. I don't mind driving.

I'm not your average person. I'm educated, love to cook, and have a strong sense of humor. I love to laugh and I enjoy making others laugh as well, even at my own expense. I have a strong desire to try new and interesting things whenever I'm given the chance. I enjoy going on random adventures. I will try anything at least once(food, music, etc) My friends describe me as a "social dolphin" because I'll jump into any situation with any mix of people and see what happens.

I'm not an iron chef by any means, but I do cook quite often. I can say this because it's the Internet, but I do make the world's best guacamole. My best meal is a toss up between pan seared salmon and burgers from scratch.

I do workout and daily at that. Exercise is important to me. No, I'm not cut like a rock, but I do run in the summer and I lift year round.

I'm not a sports fanatic by any means, but I do love Sunday Football and summer Baseball. Go bears.

I'm an artist at a local videogame company. I don't play games all day I create and build them. I love my job. It lets me be creative all day. Not many people can say something they've designed will be seen by thousands potentially millions of people everyday. It's a rewarding thing and I really enjoy doing it. I've been at the same company for five years now.

I like women with strong personalities like mine. Someone who's confident, funny, and social. Anyone who's open minded and willing to try new things no matter how silly they might look doing them. I'm looking to meet people. If that turns into a friendship, great. If that turns into something more like a relationship, even better.
