I own an interior design company & work from home with 2 employees. I have a really great lifestyle & tons of flexibility to do what I want when I want, unless work deadlines are looming, then I work a ton. I don't have kids & I've never been married, but I like kids & want to be married eventually.
First generation Chicago north sider, lived in apartments, got bussed to magnet schools. Heart that is true and bleeds redder than I would like.
I'm the friend that you call when the shit hits the fan or when you see something absurd on the street and need to laugh about it with someone or a reality check is needed or you want a drinking buddy or have an extra ticket to that thing or you need a book recommendation or your prom date stood you up.
I have never had a PB&J.
I don't eat eggs.
I am drawn to the the gray area not the dark side. I've been to that side and chose not to stay.
I like an eloquent, imaginative man. If you can build things or work with your hands, that's a major plus. I'm a little gritty and pretty open minded and it's probably only going to work out if you are too. Please have a sense of humor... I have a quick wit, you are going one to need to keep up.
I have a decent emotional vocabulary and we might need to talk about feelings at some point so have some tools in the emotional crayon box Sir.

I want to see more obscure art things here in town.

Music is everything. i love it all...try me.
Well, no "smooth jazz. And no "electronica" or whatever.
I read a lot of fiction and watch a lot of documentaries.
I collect flea market prints and objects... paint by numbers, stuff with birds, botanicals, pressed leaves, bugs, stuff made with feathers, paintings of horses, naked people, trees, children. Sad things... portraits. ink, pencil and charcoal drawings.
If I had a lot of money, I'd spend some of it on art.
One day I will have a room in my house with Stampeding Horses wallpaper by Florence Broadhurst.
