My name is Kevin Baum and I’m a Chicago-native with a passion for style, design, food and culture. I live in the South Loop neighborhood with my girlfriend Tricia and our pets Buddy, a Cairn Terrier, and Charlie, a Russian Blue.
By day I’m a Communications Manager at the nation’s leading health and wellness company, and by night I’m a marathoner and blogger with an insatiable hunger for physical and emotional strength.
