My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an eclectic person with a strange set of apocalypse-handy skills, from blacksmithing and lock picking to spinning yarn and shooting guns. I’ve also got less useful things in my repertoire that are just as much fun, like spinning poi and contact juggling. I’m a geek of many kinds – math, computer, gamer, rpg-er, art. I’m a certified Braille transcriber, know a smattering of a lot of languages, and always interested in learning how to do something new. You can find me regularly at OMSI After Dark, or taking a class on some new and strange skill.

I’m relaxed, low-maintenance, creative , and enjoy good food, new crafts, gaming, new experiences, reading, and hanging out with friends. As Dan Savage says, I am both GGG and in good working order, and I'm looking for someone who can say the same.

I’m looking for someone interesting, smart, creative, and no-drama, who also has things together enough to pay their bills on time, who is interested in coming along to do cool and interesting new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved out to the Portland area in 2011 after 11 years around Boston, so settling in and exploring what the area has to offer is taking up a fair amount of my time. Other than that, I’m always learning new skills and making new things, and currently working on house designs. Wouldn’t have it any other way. I have a day job as a computer programmer to support my various crafting habits, er, hobbies, but I’m a geek who likes working with numbers, so I'm happy with it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating things. I blacksmith, I silversmith, I do a lot of metalworking, both hot and cold. I make chainmail and jewelry. I’ve done lapidary work and am currently taking a gem faceting class. I do glass work, mostly on a small torch, though I’ve tried stained glass as well. I play and run rpgs, I spin and dye my own yarn, and knit with it. I like pottery, though sadly don’t have my own wheel. I spin poi (a strange number of my hobbies involve fire – bonus points if that’s as awesome to you as it is to me). Making things always makes me happy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
After asking a few friends, I’ve been told that my interest in other people shows when we start talking. That, or people want to know what strange crafty thing I'm working on at the moment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
After a childhood of being a picky eater, I now eat just about everything except for mushrooms, and love trying new things. Some favorites are sushi, steak (med rare, of course), thai food, mashed potatoes, and any kind of cheese.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Materials to make things / projects to work on
Good books
Imagination
Good food
New things to learn
Friends and family with whom to share it all.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories, new project ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a play or a new (to me) restaurant with friends, or home reading or watching something on tv while I make things.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a creative person who is responsible enough to pay rent on time. You have your own cool talents you’d enjoy sharing, and like learning new things. You’re up for an interesting class or adventure. If you’re low-maintenance and no-drama, and opt for clear communication rather than passive aggressive BS. I’m looking to expand my social circle, and be friends first.

Anyone who has used the term 'friendzone' need not apply.
