Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Chris and I'm nearing my 6th year in this delightful
town. I hope you are loving it here too.
I'm a person who likes to believe he is into all the cool things in
Portland like concerts and hiking and diy crafting but lately I've
become obsessed with the Portland standup comedy scene. Currently I
work for a gender-focused comedy company, which is super fun and
allows me to go to shows and call it work. So if we might hang out,
I will certainly suggest going to see comedy.
That being said, one of the main reasons I am here is for new
adventuries so know I would love to leave my comfort zone.
I think that is all for now so I hope you have a pleasant day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am living in and falling more in love with Portland.
I put on standup shows because the comedy scene in Portland is
amazing. Right now I'm doing one that has animators drawing images
that coincide with the jokes, so if you're an animator or
illustrator I might ask you all of the questions.
When I'm not doing that I like seeing parts of town I am unfamiliar
with. I used to be super into nature but have lost touch and would
like to reconnect with hiking and camping.
I am one of those terrible people who is really into brunch.
I occasionally work in theatre, and am doing so right now.
Sometimes I am a bartender.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I hope I am really good at a few things. I'm good at meeting
people, I'm good at exploring my surroundings, I'm good at thrift
shopping, I'm good at finding bad movies and then crafting
excellent drinking games for them, I was an ok gardener until inlet
the frost get my babies, and probably some other things. When I'm
bored I make driftwood art. I love masks so I also craft and
collect mask. I'm also good at stressing about how problematic our
system of gender is.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hope good things, such as my friendliness, sartorial choices, and
my enthusiasm at seeing old friends or meeting potential new ones.
But it probably is the sartorial choices. I love clothes too much.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Comedy, bad movies, wine, festivities, and the power of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trees, stupid jokes, gender and racial politics, Portland,
elaborate pranks, bad movies, and what new adventures await.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a new bar, playing games with friends, at a meeting, watching a
wonderfully bad movie, or going on a night hike. Also for the next
few weeks I will be working at a theater.
