I work for a healthcare software company in Rosemont. It can be challenging and hectic, as IT usually goes, but it’s also pretty rewarding. My job is pretty varied and I get to do a lot more than just development.
Education is very important to me and I recently finished my MBA. Beyond that, I love to learn and have lots of varied interests. I read a lot, sign up for random classes, and constantly try my hand at new skills. Basically, I’m a sponge for knowledge.
I like to think that I’m pretty levelheaded and can get along with just about anyone. I’m an INFP, but I can be pretty outgoing when I want to be. While I enjoy going out for a concert, comedy show, or just drinks, a night in with the right company can be just as fun.
I love to travel. I have a soft spot for Europe, but really, even a weekend road trip will do. Recent destinations include Berlin and the Southwest. I have vacation days to burn, so if nothing else, I could really use a new travel buddy.
I’m a pretty adventurous eater. I like trying new restaurants, cuisines, and recipes (yes, I cook quite a bit). I’m not much of a drinker, but I am a bit of a beer snob.
I love dogs and have owned a few in the past. I may or may not be allergic to cats.
I have no pretensions at being an athlete, but I do my best to stay healthy and in shape. Not wanting to look like the average software engineer is pretty good motivation, so I work out most days. I also enjoy hiking, biking, and running.
My family is pretty small, but they’re very important to me. I have relatives in Germany and Poland as well, which gives me an excuse to go back there every few years.
I’m a proud geek. That means I love video games, board games, scifi, technology, etc. I’m not necessarily looking for someone who shares all of that, but bonus points if you do.
I’m a big movie buff. I’ll watch almost anything, as long as it's good. I’m also enjoying the recent crop of high quality TV. Current favorites include Fargo, House of Cards, and Game of Thrones.
