I love my job.  I work with some of the most talented students in the city and am a forever student myself.  I quite possibly learn more from them than they do from me.

You might see me riding about town on my scooter (meep meep), on my bike getting coffee, or lollygaggin at the dog park with a couple of furry nerds.

When I'm not learning more about my discipline I enjoy art and checking out concerts.  Camping is a must for me.  Having lived here for almost two decades, I will never tire of the endless culinary options here in the windy city.  I hear the architecture is "pretty good" too.
