I share a sunny, 2-bedroom apartment on the northside with my cat, Goldblum. He thinks that I am cool, and you should too. Ok, in all honesty, he probably thinks I’m a huge dork who refrains from feeding him all the food his heart desires, but he is very particular so I will take what I can get.
-I have a regular bar trivia team that I compete with weekly (we have qualified for the citywide finals the last couple years)
-My 3 closest friends live an average of 3,095 from Chicago (yes, I did the math). Consequently, I travel a decent amount.
-Hiking and snowboarding are two of my favorite pastimes (and the lack of actual mountains is probably my only complaint about Chicago).
-I love film and have a membership at the Musicbox.
-I have been known to read behavioral econ books/articles for fun.
-I exercise to support my beer/pizza/taco habits
"What is character but the determination of incident? What is incident but the illustration of character?"
I love to travel. I actually grew up moving around quite a bit, and that has left me with some wanderlust. I just got back from San Diego and Montreal; next up Scandinavia and New Zealand.
If I'm on the street: determined east-coast style walk
If I'm sitting at the bar: the odd looking glass my beer came in
Or maybe something about my physical appearance, what do I know?
Food: I spent the first 20 years of my life being picky; now I am making up for lost time. Also, SPICY SPICY SPICY! I think this covers it.
Podcasts(updated): Lexicon Valley, HDTGM, Code Switch, Lore, Mystery Show, Filmspotting, CBB (an old favorite back in the mix) (also other EarWolf stuff), The Bugle, Freakonomics...
You read The Oatmeal and wish it updated more often (praise Jibbers!).
You want to help me check more restaurants off my ever-growing list.
You have a dog that would be down for a new friend. (My cat tells me that he is open to new acquaintances, but he is making no promises.)
