Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Music-maker, Bike-rider, Beer-brewer, Dad of mostly-grown kids
who's living the simple life, working for a small farm, still
trying to unlock the Portland world. Not necessarily looking for
someone with the keys, a sledge hammer (or even a good cheat code)
will do nicely.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, making some much needed updates to this profile. In
general, working with small farms to bring ethically raised meat to
local restaurants, enjoying and taking pride in my mostly grown,
well formed kiddos as they bust out into the world, riding my bike
as often as possible in preparation for major upcoming adventures,
keeping the drama low and the spirits high...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting up at the crack of dawn Turning off the radio and singing
along with stuff in my head. Directions. Playing stringed
instruments and learning songs by ear. Telling stories, singing
songs, picking cheeses and wines to go with them!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either my crooked smile or my awesome tattoo of Wild Thing Max,
riding Curious George's bike and wielding a ukulele.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My beautiful and talented children
The patience and support of my friends
My old, beat-up nylon string guitar
The deep, visceral taste and smell of morning coffee
Something to pedal
I can stop at five, can't I?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately music. Songs I want to learn to play and sing, How to become
a better writer and how to find musicians in this city that I can
con into forming some sort of band with me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, at a show in some divey bar, or resting up for a Saturday
bike adventure. Can't wait to put my tires on 101 sometime this

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to have fun and are willing to sing along. you know how to
play cribbage and are up for a game. Feel like tackling the
Springwater Corridor some morning. You are just as interested in
hearing stories as in telling them. You are sensitive and earnest,
but still have a good sense of humor and appreciation of irony.
Wanna go see a play or a modern dance performance and can't trick
the other guys you know into going...
