Originally from Chicago, I moved to California a coupla years ago for a job and lived in laguna beach until the beginning of '12. I take pride in my work, am focused on advancement, and definitely can exhibit a serious side sometimes b/c of such goals. I think I have a really good -- albeit sometimes dry -- sense of humor and tend to gravitate towards others who see humor in the same things. In my free time I enjoy normal stuff: hanging out with friends, listening to music, exploring LA, eating out, going to the fitness center, reading Vanity Fair, watching old skits from Mr. Show, and watching television (both serious stuff like the shows on NatGeo, such as doomsday preppers, and crap like the real housewives of NJ - yes I might have "problems"). While the vast majority of my established friends are in Chicago, career brought and kept me here so this is home now and it would be great to meet a significant other person. I can't wait to hear from you.
