I'm a native of the north suburbs of Chicago, and I just finished my master's degree at UIS in Springfield (after a far more memorable four years at the University of Maryland).
I love taking advantage of all the sports, concerts, festivals, museums, and good food in town. I'm a talkative, animated guy with plenty of opinions and no shortage of things I love to discuss. I'm a big Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and Hawks fan, along with my beloved Maryland Terps. I order my Italian Beef sandwiches with hot peppers, and I always enforce a strict no-Nickelback policy.
