What makes you a good catch?
I'm that elusive triple threat: smart, funny AND Iowan. No, f'reals, they raise us right in farm country.

What’s your idea of a perfect first date?
It seems a little typical, but there's no more comfortable place to get to know someone than Millennium Park. Live music, dancing and Mill. Park—in any order.

Favorite hangout

I'm slowly making the transition to a Long Room regular.

Secret talent

Kanye karaoke. I'm a motherfucking monster.

Describe your ideal match
Odds are, you've got a solid interest in the arts, whether or not you're an artist yourself. Also, you've got a more than solid interest in Fun. Capital F.

Name one thing a date could do that would make you go crazy (in a good way).

Improvise. Remembered a great dive in the area? Saw last minute that your favorite band is in town? Let's hit it! I want to see your unplanned adventure. Show me yours, I'll show you mine.

Name one thing a date could do that would make you go crazy (in a bad way).
