So, a little bit about me...I grew up in the area and love Chicago. Even though I live in the suburbs (closer to work) I am frequently in the city, taking advantage of all it has to offer. I enjoy traveling and experiencing new things. I try to take a big trip each summer (it helps that I have my summers off!) and a few small trips throughout the year. My brothers have gotten me into hiking, and I've been able to experience some amazing landscapes as a result. I am also always up for adventure and have even been skydiving and canyoning, despite disliking heights! I try to stay active and like to bike and run...I usually enter a few races for fun each year. In the fall, I play on a football team with CSSC. My friends and family are very important to me, and I enjoy spending time with them...nothing beats a good game night! I come from a family of U of I graduates, so I am, of course, a big Illini fan! I'd like to meet someone who is laid back (I'm not into drama), with a good sense of humor (hopefully you can take/dish sarcasm). Someone whose faith is important to them and is sincere and compassionate towards others. Also, someone who enjoys traveling and is up for adventure. I'm at a good place in my life and I feel blessed to have a great family (including the crazies...every familiy has them, right?!?) and group of friends, a job I enjoy, my health, and the ability to travel and experience many different things. I guess the last piece of the puzzle is finding the right person to share those things with...and that's why I'm on here!
