My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Failing forward, baby. Failing forward. It's the only way to succeed! And working on unconscious competence. Always.

I am the sales director for a "real foods" (e.g. non-GMO, no grains, organic-when-it-needs-to-be, often raw, sprouted nuts and seeds where possible, no bad oils (e.g. seed oils, canola)) food distributor in N. Portland. It's a very unique business with the aims of scaling up as our suppliers scale up and allowing this "real foods" movement to grow and prosper.

Millions of people find when they move off the Standard American Diet their lives are changed forever for the great, and it's wonderful to be a part of this quickly growing community.

I play bass in a band as well...and even when not in a band or bands I play the bass. I will play music until I'm dead. Oddly enough, I don't have the social capacity to be in 8,000 bands at one time, though.

This was a fun performance. "Dead End Street" by The Kinks, with horns. I'm semi-conducting the horns:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things. This was said about me by my 2nd grade teacher in 1988: "...has so many interests and enjoys learning new things. I feel that it's difficult for him to organize these thoughts and get them down in writing. Sometimes the children can't follow a story that (I'm) telling (perhaps for the same reason).

Writing aside, not much has changed.

I'm really adept at landing on my feet after bailing out of burning airplanes!

It depends on the "audience". If the audience is engaged and interested then it's my eyes and kind face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This information is all too easy to get hung up on! I do have my own personal hifi guru, though...which is really cool.

Art is too subjective to go throwing out judgments based upon taste. I know I have excellent taste music. I've lived under a rock in terms of movies, but I don't care, and neither should anyone else. "It Takes A Thief" is one of my favorite TV shows. And I was -8 when it last aired in 1971. The movie "A Hard Day's Night" never gets old for me.

I love this song, though:

Food is an interesting thing in American culture. I've been living "primal" for the last 5 years and having embraced it I don't know why anyone would go back to eating things with ingredients that belong in a chemistry set. There is no one size fits all but there are so many things out there labeled as food that shouldn't be consumed by anyone.

I get that a lot of people feel like paleo/primal/whatever combined with gluten-free is this "hip" or trendy "fad" -- but consider this: why be a hater when millions of people are finding out life is so much better when they're not killing themselves?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ketosis. A means of getting from Point A to Point B. Merino wool -- and now cedar hangers, learning the hard way. My job. My family. Clean sustenance -- including organic pu-erh tea. It's magical. And I need to buy more.

If I could add a 7th it would be the dulcet tones of my next door neighbor locking the front door of his apartment on his way out to somewhere as it gives me peace, quiet and the freedom from modern country ballads blasted so loud they can be heard from a block away...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Playing to win.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I have a gig on Fridays. Most of the time I wind down from the work week. Sometimes I go out after work with coworkers and play enhanced table tennis. It just depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

On 4/18/15 I came back home from running an errand when I just happened to walk by the porch of the duplex adjacent to my bank of apartments. The porch just happened to have a small fire that had engulfed a plastic flower pot. Before anyone could get a fire extinguisher to control the fire it began to cascade, but fortunately we were able to get it under control before the fire department arrived to fully extinguish the fire for good. Had I not walked by (as no one else had walked by for 20 minutes prior) when I did it's likely the whole house could have gone up.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
"If" needs to be replaced in this box with the word "because". So:

*You felt I wrote you something engaging and thoughtful.
*Personal growth and health are very important to you.
*You have time and energy to allow another person into your life.
*I can add value to your life.
*I can connect with just about anyone. I can always find common ground.

One observation I have about Portland in the nearly 13 years I've lived here is it is incredibly's a short term retirement community for millennials and Gen-X. I have dreams of visiting faraway places, but I like Portland enough to stay here. Especially with my company starting to take off, I don't plan on moving anywhere else anytime soon.
