I am a huge beer dork and I am constantly on the search to find my favorite beer.
I am an Eagle Scout.
I'm very passionate about the Chicago street grid system.
I am 3/7ths of the way to riding a motorcycle on every continent.
I hope that I am able to walk on the moon at some point in my life.
I spend my weekends photographing every type of wedding imaginable. www.bradmeyerphoto.com
