Years lived in Toledo: on and off ~20 years

One song lyric to describe my ideal self: “I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more. Just to be the man.”
The best thing I’ve ever eaten in Toledo was: Kengo sushi.

The street I drive on/walk on most often is: Eleanor.

The best time I ever had in Toledo: Doing a Toledo themed scavenger hunt / live puzzle made by my wife for my 30th birthday with my best friend and ending in a party at The Heights.

If I could change one thing about Toledo: I would build a game store hang out in downtown.

If I knew I could get away with it, I would: Make a living stealing back stolen art for Museums.

The best view in Toledo: From the docks looking back on the city.

When I’m craving Dolla Dolla Tacos, I go to El Camino.

The Toledoan I most admire: I most admire Dave Geirke from TSA, because he has an uncanny ability to seem like the coolest guy in the room when he obviously isn’t.

A card game with unique gameplay and appreciation of the arts, Master Thief is all about stealing the valuable items at the museum and preventing your opponents from doing the same. Of course, don't get caught!
