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.

WHY CHICAGO?

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

FAVORITE TCHOTCHKE?

Either my hot pink Lucite candy dish or my Hans Gustav Ehrenreich spring toys.

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

HASHTAG YOURSELF.

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.

RANDOM FACT?

I was a college cheerleader and I have straight thumbs

WHAT’S YOUR LATEST BINGE-WATCH?

House of Cards

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.
