I am a fun and funny (yes, even though I am German....go figure!) person, who loves life and people. My career in hotel business has provided hours of entertaining stories and experience... Growing up with two older sisters, I got stuck with their music - I love my Classic Rock and will see "Rush" anytime they play in my city. My German roots and my family over there are very important to me as is my Catholic upbringing, but my love for THIS country rules and I have no intention of ever living anywhere else... I've lived in fabulous cities and made amazing friends along the way - I bet I have a story or two to tell... bring a bottle of cab, will ya!? What else?! I've ran the Chicago Marathon in '11, I've just started boxing and I like kayaking, hiking - and seriously hanging about on my couch with a good book or a great movie. I can also cook decently, and I like heavy, dark wines and Macallan. One day, I'll have three dogs, a Triumph Bonneville and a red Pickup truck!
