My self-summary
I think my childhood is officially over. I mean, once you actually want and need a power drill, its downhill from there. And guess what? I recently just got a power drill...

With that being said, I do like to still have fun. I am very sociable and enjoy everyday interactions with my friends, family and coworkers. I am the type of person who sees potential in everything. I see the glass as half full rather than half empty. I love learning and trying new things.

I consider myself to be pretty responsible. In October of 2011, I moved out of my parents house and got my own house which has made me infinitely times more responsible than when I was living with my folks.

I have always had a thing for dogs. I currently have a 6 year old American Cocker Spaniel named Wrigley. She is pretty awesome. I have been debating recently about getting another dog but I am not 100% committed yet. In the future though, I really want to get a red or grey Siberian Husky pup or a yellow Labrador pup.

In the past, I have often been asked what I am looking for on this site. Well, my parents have been happily married for over 28 years. I want exactly what they have. After 28 years, they are perfectly happy with one another.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a wonderful career as a web designer and programmer. While juggling work, I am almost finished with my masters degree in information systems management. I cannot even image my life without school and homework. It is going to be even more amazing once I finish up this degree!

In my free time in the summer and spring, I really enjoy going on bike rides with my Harley. During the winter, I occasionally like to build snow forts.. and of course go sledding.

One thing that my friends and I enjoy doing is going to different baseball stadiums around the country. During the summer of 2012, we took a road trip out east and went to Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. I think our next road trip will be out west and see all the California stadiums!
I’m really good at
Telling corny jokes such as: why do cows wear bells? Umm, because their horns don't work, duh!

I am also pretty decent at do-it-yourself projects and building things. I recently took a few shelving units from IKEA and some clothes rods from Home Depot and made my own custom walking closet design.

I'd like to say I am a softball superstar but that would just be a lie. I am an average player but still thoroughly enjoy playing. I have a team with a bunch coworkers and every spring/summer we fight to not have the worst record in the league :D
The first things people usually notice about me
I've noticed that recently that more and more people will comment about my beard. Usually people have positive comments but occasionally I will get someone who jokes around with me about it, which is totally ok.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a pretty big fan of good TV shows so I can chat with my coworkers during coffee breaks about theories, WTF moments, etc. Some of my favorite TV shows are:
The League, Orange is the New Black, Revolution, Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, and Always Sunny

Like a lot of people, my music taste varies widely. I can pretty much listen to anything. When trying to sleep, I have occasionally thrown on some classical music to help me fall asleep since it is so calming. Some of my favorite artists are:
Killswitch Engage, Credence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Eminem, Tech N9ne, 2 Chainz, and Flux Pavilion

Being a sports fan born and raised in Chicagoland is great because we have the best teams around (in my opinion of course). I love the Bears, Cubs, Hawks and Bulls. I don't hate the White Sox, I just prefer the Cubbies. I do, however, hate the Packers :)
Six things I could never do without
Netflix - I don't have cable so Netflix keeps me entertained
My dog - She keeps me sane when I am home alone, plus she is my best friend!
Cheese - I cannot image a world without string cheese, can you?
Slippers - What can I say? My feet get cold easily
Xbox - Its my DVD player and also lets me blast fools in Call of Duty
Headphones - I can listen to my music with as much bass as I want without disrupting others
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Outer space and how uncomprehendingly HUGE it is. Something about astrology has always interested me. I also think about when I will get promoted at work and where I will be, professionally and personally, in 5 years.

Oh, and of course I spend a lot of time thinking about which came first, the chicken or the egg?
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a few drinks with my friends and singing karaoke. My go to songs are 'Fight For Your Right (to party)', 'Piano Man', 'All I Can Do Is Write It In A Song' and 'Bad Moon Rising'. I am always welcome to suggestions for new songs to try!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I count stairs when I climb up or go down them. In case you were wondering (which I know you were) I have 13 stairs in my house and there are 20 stairs at my job.
You should message me if
You would like to be my baseball-stadium-traveling-partner... or just a plain-ole traveling partner.

If you enjoy discussing/talking about shows as much as watching them. Feel free to bounce some of your thoughts and theories off me in the shows you are interested in!
The two of us
