Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New to the Portland area, in my late 30's, working on getting a
credential to teach full-time. Looking to get out and start
exercising (bicycling?) more, and get familiar with the area. Was
mildly famous for 15 seconds; am hoping it leads to some of my
scriptwriting getting more opportunities. Lost my mom in a climbing
accident 2 months ago. Partnered for 11 years with the sweetest,
most wonderful guy on Earth, who's [always] my #1; you might have a
shot at #2 or #3. ;) I love movies and can see 3-4 a week, and can
spend hours in a bookstore just browsing. I want my Springsteen and
Streisand CDs with me on a desert island. I'm Episcopalian and
Democrat, but it's OK if you aren't (just don't try to change me).
I believe in hoping for a better tomorrow.
I am generous, wry, and romantic

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My partner Jonathan
2. Going to Barnes and Noble once a week for magazine-reading
3. Seeing a movie at least once every 2 weeks
4. My family's support
5. My friends' love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get a screenplay sold, and is it self-indulgent to pursue
this dream when I could be getting my teaching credential. Hence, I
try to juggle both. Right now I'm also thinking about getting our
house together, since we're newly moved in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If the reviews are good, I'm at a newly-released movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have very few secrets (they tend to get you in trouble), so I
don't know what's especially private. OK, I have a weakness for
dark-haired and redheaded guys, so those pics usually grab my
attention first; if you're shorter than I am, that's an added plus.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know a part of Portland I should explore/see, and you're the
person to do it. I'll buy the coffee. And if you HAPPEN to have a
fondness for bears (Woof!), it can't hurt. My partner will need to
sign off on you if/when we decide there's potential for Playtime,
but just friends is fine too.
