What does the term “Bear” mean to you?
“I think this is a fluid, changing term – but generally a hairy guy, can be bigger or more muscular. In my experience, most are friendly and fun-loving.”
What’s your idea of a perfect date?
“Dinner or drinks at a local restaurant. I like to get to know someone through conversation; an organic exchange of thoughts, opinions, likes and dislikes.”
How would you describe your personal interior design style?
“Warm, comfortable, lived-in. Pristine places are nice, but I want my guests to feel at home. Nothing is worse than being afraid to sit on someone’s couch! My walls and furniture are neutral; I change the look with things like pictures, pillows, art, flowers – subtle color in key places.”
What kind of music do you listen to?
“Varied! For the most part indie or euro-pop: Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service; Robyn; The xx; LCD Soundsystem; Peter Bjorn and John.”
Location: Chicago, IL
Fitness Routine: “I go to the gym 5-6 times a week; it’s a mix of weight training and cardio. When it’s nice outside I run along the lakefront path on Lake Michigan, and during the winter the stair climber is my best friend.”
Occupation: “Teacher and musician.”
Hobbies: “Travel as much as I can, and play softball during the summer. I love to cook and entertain at my place. Trying to stay in shape – although it’s mostly to counteract the aforementioned food and beverages!”
Guilty Pleasure Snack: “I love sour and chewy candy. Sour Patch Kids and Chewy Spree.”
TV Faves: “Mad Men, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Law and Order: SVU.”
Last good movie you saw: “I only go to movies once a year – on Christmas night with my sisters. This year was “American Hustle” – and I loved it.”
Currently Reading: “A James Patterson Novel – “Gone”
Turn Ons: “Confidence, intelligence. Being easygoing and adventurous. Lover of friends, family, and life.”
Turn Offs: “Arrogance, negativity. Smoking is a deal-breaker.”
Personal Statement: “I love the quotes “A person’s wound is where their passion is born” and “Not all those who wander are lost.” They speak to my motivations and passions, which include traveling and singing. I perform with an amazing ensemble, the Wicker Park Choral Singers. WPCS is a Chicago, all-volunteer, non-profit ensemble dedicated to building community through choral music.
