How to describe me... I'm native Oregonian but I'm not the guy who thinks he knows about everything Portland or the state has to offer. This place is fucking abundant and I'm always looking for new adventures.
I listen a lot, but to everything more than just people. I try to let the moment capture me. I try to expand upon my world, both physically and mentally. I try not to stagnate, but continue to grow and develope as a person.
I play music. I love to run. I'm a big fan of basketball and soccer. Same with live stand-up, and the Hollywood Theater. I can name most trees and do it constantly in my head. I love the coast.
I'm looking for a woman with a defined sense of self and positive disposition. I like someone who is comfortable in their own skin. Someone who sees the beauty in the little things.
I want to meet casually first because dates are kind of stuffy.
