About Me

My name is John Forristal. I’m from a small town called Holstein, Iowa (north of Omaha, Nebraska.)

For relevent experience, I’ve interned in the press office of Senator Tom Harkin (Iowa) in Washington, DC, worked in the communications department for United Food and Commercial Workers International (UFCW,) and now am interning at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance in their PR division.

My ultimate dream job would be something in sports or politics, so I guess something where I could do both would be ideal.

I think I have a free flowing writing style, but sometimes I can get wordy and loose with my writing. I need to work on spelling and technical grammar. A strength of mine is flow, and a weakness would be conciseness.

On a scale of 1 to 10 on how much I enjoy writing, I’d give myself an 8. For my writing skill I’d give myself a 7.

To relax, I enjoy golfing and playing basketball. I like to watch the Kansas City Royals when I don’t have much to do.

I don’t know any foreign languages, even after 4 years of Spanish.

No pets. But I guess I’m a dog person.

My favorite ethnic food would be Chinese. I like most ethnic food and have went out for Thai a few times recently. I had a mediocre experience with Ethiopian food once.

The last movie I saw at the theater was the final Harry Potter.

I have a few favorite TV shows… Sportscenter and College Gameday. I love LOST. Parks and Recreation is the funniest show on television. I’m currently watching season 1 of Dexter.

The wallpaper for my computer is a Wilco cover album.

I have a Twitter account that I over use sporadically. @Jforristal

3 things most people don’t know about me: I don’t nap. I LOVE the Kansas City Royals. I haven’t bought groceries since early June.
