I spent my 30's being an adventurer. I hiked the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails. I lived in the Bay Area, and did a lot of exploring of Marin County. I love the outdoors, and if I had a million dollars, I'd be hiking all the time.
The reality is that I don't have a million dollars, and that's why I am spending my 40's being an entrepreneur. I started a handyman / general contracting business here in Portland, which I operate off my bicycle. Yep, I pull a trailer around town with tools and materials, fixing, building, and repairing things for my clients. I am going to start building tiny houses this year, and I hope to grow that as an offshoot of my business.
I enjoy my time hanging out with friends whom I know from all my hiking adventures. We are a tight group, and we get together often here in Portland. Sometimes we go hiking on the weekends!
I don't own a car, and I do all my travel by bike. I'd prefer to meet someone who is cool with that, and also enjoys getting around by bike, but that's not necessary.
I live with two roommates, who are a couple, and we have a great relationship. We enjoy the Belmont-Sunnyside neighborhood, because everything is 5-minutes away! We go out to eat in the Belmont area often, and some of my favorite places are Dick's Kitchen, or the food carts near 43rd and Belmont.
I am prone to making too many commitments with my work and volunteerism, and I have a hard time saying, "no." People describe me as a hard worker, trustworthy, honest, and chill.
