I've lived in Chicago for 10 years. Grew up in the northeast sticks of Oregon. I'm a total GUY. I rode horses since I could walk, raised all sorts of animals while living in the country with my family. I have a great job and I'm also finishing my degree at Northwestern. I'm motivated, I like to have a good time with my friends. When I'm not working and studying I like to blade, ski, skydive, run, workout, bike, ride my Ducati motorcycle, play baseball or catch, volleyball, chill at the beach, swim, raft, play pool, spend time with friends or family, travel (either on the motorcycle, or by car, or airplane), concerts, watch the Sox or Cubs (Go Sox ;). I like chillin with my friends, I have a good group of guys and gals I keep close. I'm not huge into the gay scene. I go out every once in a while, but I don't live at the gay bars. I'll go just about anywhere and do, just depends who I'm with. I've tried the gay scene, it's just not me. I'm masculine, most people can't tell I'm gay, I end up surprising them. My father has owned his own automotive business since 1980. I grew up working on trucks and cars. I drove tractors before I had a license. I showed sheep, pigs, rabbits, and chickens in the county fairs where I grew up. I've done everything from roofing houses, to drywall, to digging trenches with a backhoe, to working with horses. I basically grew up working with my hands and I love where I came from. Not many gay guys can say that. I'm well cultured. Chicago has been a great city to live in the last 10 years. I do miss my roots. I'm an outside person. When I was born, my parents lived in the mountains. In the summers growing up in the mountains, my parents couldn't keep clothes on us. :) I'm just an all around good guy with a big heart. A lot of people have told me Oregonians are the nicest people you'll ever meet...
Every day I'm finding out more and more about myself yet I don't know who I am anymore! :) I enjoy surrounding myself with kind and caring people who won't incriminate other people for their adversity and I appreciate other people for their views and accomplishments.
Eyes, lips, dimples make me go crazy, active, politeness, laid-back, intellectual, driven, masculine, intense, open to new ideas and things.
Additudes, being pretentious, label whores, and I'm not attracted to flamers/queens.
