My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi - I'm Josh.

On this here site tryin' to meet a rad person to share drinks, laughs, and other assorted good times with.

Originally from Boston, although I've been living in Portland for almost 5 years now. I have a pretty wide range of interests, definitely a dabbler, and am usually up for just about anything...

I believe that life is less about what I'm doing, and more about who I'm surrounding myself with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Went to school for Computer Science, and then did the culinary school thing... So, of course now I do very little related to either. Living in OhNoPo, managing a locally-owned store up in St Johns (and spending entirely too much time there). Occasionally playing grill cook at a bar in SE, and forever working on a screenplay.

Between those commitments I try to spend as much time as I can with friends; cooking, eating, drinking, hiking, watching, listening, playing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking entirely too many photos of my cats.
Being loyal/dependable.
Problem solving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Maybe my smile?

...I wear a lot of Carhartt.

When people find out I'm from Boston they're usually surprised I don't have an accent.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Things I wouldn't want to do without...

-my cats
-the elusive, and rare, day off
-public transportation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Which friend's birthday is next, and what kind of cake I should bake them. What's the cat thinking?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The day of the week isn't so important, but... Out with friends in familiar, or unfamiliar, spaces. At the Laurelhurst for a movie and beer, or somewhere shooting pool (poorly). Having friends over for dinner. Omsi after dark, trying out a new restaurant... Open mic night at Helium.

Staying in, watching a flick, and being around the cats, is nice too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll give you a few - cause this question is fun...

My favorite spot in Portland is either up on Council Crest, or at the Superfund wasteland up in St Johns... There's industrial ruins, rad graffiti, boat squatters, abandoned train tracks, and a beach.

I don't drive, bike, or drink coffee... I'm a bad Portlander.

When I was in my early twenties I won, and lost, about $20,000 gambling over the span of 2 days.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I figure you should message me if you dig my profile, and want to hang out.

I'm not looking for anything particular, and sort of like to just let things develop naturally... So, that said, I'm all about getting drinks, with no pretense or expectations, and just seeing where things go.
