Hello wet shavers ... it was time I finally spent a few minutes to formally introduce myself!

I've been at this great hobby since 2012 and in the past year, the incredible artisan market has sucked me in deeper than I ever imagined!  The quality and variety of products available makes it such a wonderful time to discover traditional shaving. 

When I'm not immersed in razors, soaps and splashes, I keep busy with my 3 kids and their activities - hockey, baseball, football and volleyball.  And to help get through the cold Chicago winter, I build a small ice rink in the backyard and also do a bunch of snowboarding here in the Midwest.  The kids help keep me young!

You'll find me under the same userid in social media and other shaving forums.  I don't post often, but I'm always around! 

Thanks guys, and look forward to enjoying my time on the DFS!
-Jay

Welcome! I'm in the Chicago area, too. Have you been in to check out Merz/Q Brothers in the city?

Hey Chuck - I have not, but I need to get there!  I unfortunately missed the Chicago Meetup earlier this summer.  That was the perfect excuse to head into the city!

Yeah, I missed it, too. Somehow I didn't hear about it until after it happened.
