Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I listen to Hans Zimmer whilst driving and pretend I'm on the cusp
of some epic event, as opposed to something more mundane like
driving to the store for eggs, or back to the gym because I forgot
I'm Agnostic, which literally means 'without knowledge.' So, I'm
humble enough to not pretend that I know a particular thing, when I
don't actually know it. I'm also a pragmatist. I believe I apply
these two ideologies in almost every endeavor I undertake.
On that note; to my knowledge, a magical bearded white guy does not
live in the sky. And if he does, he's an asshole.
I Elvis as a verb.
I read lots of books but I rarely understand what I'm reading so I
just furrow my brow and pretend. Similarly, when people speak to me
about complicated matters I just nod my head and smile.
I wear my obscurity on my sleeve via malnutrition, tight clothes
and bad tattoos. That way everyone can see how original I am. I
love to dress up like elvis Costello and hit the mean streets of
Portland on a Saturday afternoon and judge everyone who doesn't
look super sad, pensive and poor.
Oh, I'm left-handed. To me that is significant. Though I'm not sure
why. Probably because it's my only shot at being a minority, thus
providing me some much needed street cred.
Update: I'm not on here often. I'm not so sure about dating and
haven't made any effort for over a year now. I've been distracted.
I've managed to visit all but two states in the country, Hawaii was
my most recent. Alaska and North Dakota will be my last, next year.
I've developed a love, perhaps, obsession with traveling. Ireland
and France are scheduled this year. Unfortunately, because of my
new found love, and my job, which also requires traveling, I am
still single and will likely remain so. I keep this profile open
because, well, I am open. I'm open to the unlikely possibility that
there is some person out there who is as compelling to me as a
place I've never been but must see. I am quite literally in a
different time zone almost every other week so please do not expect
to instantaneously domesticate me, though it t is possible. In
fact, it's something I long for. Until then...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Preparing for my first trip to Burning Man.
I'm traveling this year... A lot.
Otherwise, I'm married to my job, which facilitates my ability to
travel. Update: Last year, my life was changed when my little girl
was born... two thousand miles away. I've since become a familiar
site in airports nationwide. I'm making myself as flexible as
possible until she's of age to visit me, wherever I may have
settled down... Also, I've given up the meat head routine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Please do NOT message me if you watch Fox News for any reason other

Also, If you believe in a magical, bearded white dude who lives in
outer space, chances are we might not go very far.
You take good care of yourself, within reason. Vices are more than
ok, but having a complete lack of concern for your physical,
mental, and emotional health makes for a less captivating
You don't mind that I dropped the F Bomb twice in my profile.
