Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a self employed freelance digital artist and photographer. I
was born in Portland, lived many places at various times for work
and just to expand my view... but came back a few years ago. I
don't have any plans to move away again anytime soon, but like to
remain open to the idea... Should opportunities arise.
I live a pretty laid back lifestyle without a lot of worries
besides the usual things like money and bills and things everyone
stresses about now and then. I say I'm laid back, others call me
calm or chill... Irony being I'm usually anxious and want to do
something besides sitting around all the time... Even if just an
art project or something around the house. I need to be busy,
distracted, or with people... I get stir crazy when I'm not being
productive or social. I like downtime too... I need a balance. I
really enjoy cuddling ...I love intimate closeness, but I don't
like needy. Big difference.
...the rest about me you can discover by getting to know me. I'm
pretty awesome, at least enough to warrant getting to know me a
little... Even if nothing pans out romantically. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it... like really LIVING it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Art/Photography... my primary love and degree is in art. I'm a jack
of all trades, fixing broken things, untangling chains (like
necklaces), and a ton of other random and "why would anyone know
how to do that" sort of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall. I think this intimidates small people... which is a
shame, I like small people. ...also I have a young face. I'm not
attached to my beard, but if I shave I look 28… tops.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like Sci-Fi/Futurism. My all time favorites are authors like
Asimov, Card, Stirling. I read all the time. Always willing to take
a suggestion. I've read something from practically every genre
imaginable, even fusion genres... and I enjoy reading a book I can
discuss with someone else who's read it.
Music is probably my biggest interest outside my art. I listen to
electronic music... everything from EDM to
downtempo/lounge/chillout... and I listen to a wide array of rock
genres, pop genres, etc... I'm like most Portlanders, and not a big
fan of country music.
I watch TV series online, so... if it's a good show, I've probably
binge watched it up to current, and am always looking for
I am a movie buff, and can't list the thousands upon thousands of
movies i've seen and loved. I love all kinds of movies from dramas
to action/adventure to comedy. Yes ladies, I even have been known
to sit through a chick flick, and not hate it. I worked in film for
a number of years... I consider the film industry to be a chapter
in my life... now i'm focused on music.
I don't have any food phobias... eat salads, and never eat fast
food. I never drink anything with HFCS. I'm a big fan of Portland's
MANY food carts, and local cafes... and prefer to shop/eat local. I
do eat meat occasionally, I'm not opposed... It just turns out that
meat isn't the focus for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Health, Excitement, Quiet, Music, the Ocean, Intimacy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe... I tend to catch myself thinking deeply about
everything... questioning everything...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It's never the same. Always with friends... but the location varies
between: Pubs, concerts, local cafes and coffee houses, Front
stoops, back yard fire pits, in the city parks, the beach, the
mountain, the gorge, etc etc etc... there's always something going
down. Sometimes I do "me time" on weekends... Just depends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to have fun, go on adventures, or maybe relax in the park.
And, if you're looking to meet someone real, who won't lie to you,
manipulate you, try to change you... if you're hoping (like me) to
meet honest, genuine people to have awesome memorable times with.

...or if you have/ride a bike around Portland.
