CREATIVE // CAN-DO ATTITUDE // EFFICIENT // EASY GOING // HARD WORKING
I crave the unusual -- unique people, new experiences, the open road, the untraveled path. I'm organized, diligent and fast. I love technology and new media, I'm a voracious reader and a greedy consumer of content. I have a wide array of interests including art, music, astronomy, literature, cooking, history, film, media, science, politics, etc. and enjoy meeting new people.
Born in the north side of Chicago, I spent my early years in smokey bars, playing darts and known by the locals as 'Twinkey Toes'. As a music enthusiast, I played double bass for symphony orchestras, jazz bands, musicals and concert bands, and I played electric bass in a ska band, folk group, and an alternative indie band. I have medals in math and English, was voted the 'most unique' of my high school class, partook in Korean fan dancing, started an international dinner club, solo backpacked around Europe for 6 months, and was a top student in a highly competitive creative advertising program. I lived, fished and hiked in Alaska; own a kayak and three bikes; am an avid doodler; roommate of international students and visitors; a postmodern enthusiast (lit, art, architecture); and am a big time dreamer! In search of the cure for Bieber fever, Waldo's GPS coordinates and my stolen Hogwarts acceptance letter.
I love the cold though it's barren,
I love my dreams though they give me no comfort,
and I'm in love with the stars though they do not love me back.

"But I will confess that I began as an astronomer— a liking for bright flashes, vast distances, unreachable things, a hand stretched always toward the furthest limit..."
