I moved around a lot in my High School years, gaining considerable experience assimilating into new groups of people.
Ended up living near Wisconsin Dells, a place that I had only visited a few times as a child, and there I was Lifeguarding in the "waterpark capital of the world". I also taught snowboard lessons at Devil's Head Resort near Baraboo.
I attended a UW College for two years and got my generals taken care of before moving to Milwaukee to study Architecture. Graduated in '08 and have been working in some design related field ever since. Currently at a design firm in the Third Ward specializing in store fixtures for retail/commercial environments.
I strive to be one of the best at whatever I do, whether it's at work or volleyball, shooting at the gun range or even ping pong. I am very competitive by nature, and I have surrounded myself with a core group of friends that also have this trait.
I also like to think I'm good at cribbage.

My friends will tell you I'm single because I'm too picky, but I don't think my must haves are too ridiculous... Here are a few in no particular order:
*You open the carton of eggs before putting them in your cart.
*You have a good relationship with your parents.
*You are straightforward, honest and upfront.
*You have a good group of friends that keep you grounded.
*You aren't mean/rude to waiters or bartenders. Or anyone for that matter...
*You appreciate Art.
*Your car floor isn't littered with fast food bags.
*You're currently reading a book.
