About Me I work as a chemist and really enjoy chemistry but it is only one of my many interests. I also enjoy (among other things) art, music, history, theatre, film, biking, hiking, good food and good conversation. I have lived in the Chicago area for seven years and love it. There is always something interesting that can be found to do. I like going to the art galleries, discovering new restaurants, seeing live music, and going to the Music Box or Landmark Century to see a good Indie film. I am originally from Michigan although I have lived in six other states and have traveled to twelve countries. I love the experiences that my travel has given me and I am always up for more. As far as my personality is concerned, I have been accused of being friendly, honest, intelligent, individualistic, and idealistic, with a dry sense of humor.

    My friend, here is something different something special I would like to share with you. It is a beautiful expression of Love.


    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    Dreams are but stars before our fingertips, we must believe they are attainable or we will never really reach them.

    When you speak of the light, it grows ever brighter.
    When I think of the light of a beautiful friend, I think of you.

    In the cold moments of uncertainty, feeling the loving light of your friendship lets me know I can go on.
