Video Producer (TV / Web)
How about we… grab fanny packs, "I (heart) NY" t-shirts, and some clandestine booze, and board a hop-on/hop-off tour bus around the city.
How about we… ab coffee at Intelligentsia then go wander around the Chicago Cultural Center.
How about we… go to a Village Discount Outlet, give ourselves a $10 spending limit, and see who can come up with the craziest (slash most amazing) outfit.
An awesome place I've visited:
Once in Istanbul, a shady museum security guard asked my friends and I if we would like to come in for a cup of apple tea. Cut to forty minutes later when he lead us down into an active Byzantine archeological dig site to show us the "mummies." He may have tried to grope all the ladies in my group, but we did get to see a unique view of the Aya Sophia and the Blue Mosque from a recently discovered Byzantine smuggling tunnel.
My perfect Sunday:
Sleeping in, brunch with good friends, rooftops with a view
The movie I've watched the most times:
Mean Girls or The Princess Bride
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born outside Boston; grew us as a theater nerd. Educated at Syracuse; became a production nerd. Moved to New York City; worked in crazy television. Relocated to Chicago; produced videos for the Obama campaign. Starting a company; loving life.
My first concert / My dream concert:
My mom took me with her to see Carley Simon when I was 6. It was pretty groovy.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Working in TV, I've gained a lot of useless knowledge. (Including a somewhat encyclopedic knowledge of the life of John Candy and how to authenticate a piece of the Titanic.)
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Make me laugh.
What I would bring to show and tell:
The "Complete Guide to Air Guitar Handbook" (Copyright 1982) that I found on the street.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
That time Will Ferrell took his pants off in front of me.
An infatuation of mine:
Twirling my hair, Slinkies, Connect Four, and "Mr. T - Be somebody or be somebody's fool"
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Do a jig, buy some real estate, throw a party, then (depending on the size of my payday) start a charity that would send underprivileged kids abroad to experience new cultures.
