Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Always do sober what you said you would do drunk. That will teach
you to keep your mouth shut." -Ernest Hemingway
I listen to Hanz 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. If he does he sounds like an asshole.
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 matters Of import I just nod my head and smile.
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After traveling for two years I'm moving back to Portland. I
recently returned from Denali, an incredible trip; one I've wanted
to do for a decade. I missed Burning Man this year so finally
checked off Alaska instead. I'm busy house hunting and preparing to
cross the Pacific Ocean for the first time. I endeavored to grow my
hair last year, as illustrated in the photographs. Oh, and I'm on a
Hemingway kick. This has compelled me to commit to some rather rash
behavior as of late.
Also, before my upcoming birthday I'll have been to at least ten
countries (not including layovers), crossed both the Atlantic and
Pacific, and have visited every state in the union. My goal is to
eventually see every continent. But, in the meantime, I'm
attempting my most daring adventure yet; domestication. Also, after
a very demanding year of work I hope to dial it down a bit, spend
less time working and traveling and more time with my homies in my
favorite city, Portland.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Yelling at, and degrading the TSA

You do NOT watch Fox News for any reason other than sheer comedic
entertainment. Or perhaps if you're researching idiots, sycophants
and crazy people.
Also, If you believe in a magical, bearded white dude who lives in
outer space, chances are we might not go very far for very long.
But I'm open if you are.
You liked most of the movies I listed I would probably have no

I'm often surprised at how so many people do not see my
facetiousness for what it is. I'd like to think I'm laying it on
pretty thick but I've received some silly questions regarding my
profile. Please have a sense of humor. At least a little bit.
As a side note, it's unlikely I will message you. I'm actually
quite shy at first, which, in part, brings me to this website...
