How do you take your coffee?
I prefer tea but I’ve lately been taking it black (with a little bit of honey).
Bike, walk, train, or drive?
Haven’t owned a car in 15 years, so I’m a train/bike kinda guy.
Favorite Northside hangout?
Berlin is my most regular haunt, but that might not be north enough. I also enjoy Hopleaf and Big Chicks.
What’s your ideal road trip?
Three or four friends, warm summer weather, wind in my hair - to somewhere that has camping, canoeing, cupcakes and (ideally) a forest dance party. Also somewhere I can see the stars at night.
What drives you?
Self-improvement. I’m turning 40 this year and the 40s are going to be all about being the best me I can be.
Because it combines the best of major metropolitan urban living, affordability and user-friendliness.
Can’t live without…
is saying chipotle, wrong? How about TV? (no that sounds bad too). I’ll go with - the Olympics
Do you have a four-legged roommate? Tell us about him/her
Sadly, not anymore but eventually I will again. I’m a dog guy and don’t see myself going too long without one.
Morning routine? ( in 3’s) Wake up, Brush teeth, eat breakfast
50 pushups/sit-ups (I try), make bed, brush teeth
Either my hot pink Lucite candy dish or my Hans Gustav Ehrenreich spring toys.
What would your Tinder profile say?
“Is this like Grindr? Because I’m bad at that too”
Define your style?
Controlled Chaos with a dash of Color and Comfort and soupçon of Charm
What would your punk band name be?
Imitate a Cat Puking
I Jam Out to…
cool synths, steamy disco, Scandinavian pop, witch house, 90s rock, 80s dark wave and the Xanadu soundtrack
If I am not at home, you can find me here.
Realistically – at work; Idealistically – out taking advantage of what this city has to offer, particularly in the summer.
I was a college cheerleader and I have straight thumbs
What’s your latest binge-watch?
House of Cards
What’s your stripper name? (First pet’s name + street you grew up on)
Buster John (ouch!) or Smokie John (sounds like the captain of a fishing trawler)
Cook us your favorite meal.
I make a mean lasagna…but since I’ve been on a plant based diet for a little bit I also make a mean veggie stir-fry.
