My family is most important to me in life. Beyond that, I am a smart working, creative, thoughtful, and outgoing musical person. I get into the gym several times a week, love to cook and make almost everything from scratch. Among several instruments, I have been playing the guitar for 28 years. I'm often playful and silly but can be very serious when necessary. I like to be outdoors when the weather is nice and prefer having fun with my friends and family over sitting around doing nothing. I am told I am an excellent listener and am good at staying positive. As I am handy and helpful in many areas, I'm often the guy people turn to for advice or assistance. While I enjoy all sports for the most part, my favorite teams are the Bulls and Hawks! Don't worry, I'm still a Bears and Cubs fan!
