I'm a midwestern transplant from the Great Lakes. Even though I've been gone for almost two decades I still pride myself on being grounded and not chasing a life in the stars.
Here's a jumbled up summarized list of things that keep me smiling:
Keeping a healthy balance between being an accomplished man and a big kid at heart...playing at the beach, hiking, biking or really anything I can get into outdoors.
Staying a student of life. Realizing all good things come to those who wait, but only the things left over from those who hustled. Live and love by the Golden Rule (do unto others as you'd have them do unto you).
I'm a tastebuds enthusiast..either practicing my skills by going out, staying in (yeah, I've started cooking a thing or two) or maybe at your place? I'll even bring the wine..I have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to the nectar of the Gods.
I get out to travel abroad at least once a year. There's so much to get lost in out there. So far Germany, Italy and France are at the top of my list of favorites. Heading to Cost Rica, Spain and possibly Iceland this year.
I've also been a music and movies appreciator my whole life. Concerts and new tunes are my biggest vice. Thank you Spotify.. we truly worship you. When it comes to movies, I'll wait until you have a few drinks so that you can withstand my on and on jawing about the magic of cinema.
Ps: I've recently been informed that it's not created with magic, but with computers.. Damn, talk about realizations...
