I am an avid NIU fan...that's all you need to know. But if you want more, I love writing, craft beer, making and editing videos, watching movies, playing all kinds of sports (football, baseball, tennis, soccer, whatever). I live in St. Charles, a suburb of Chicago and love the Cubs, Bears, and Hawks too.
