My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a easy-going guy with a good sense of humor. I have been very much into soul searching and self-exploration during my 20's and part of this is that I haven’t settled on much for very long. Moving between cities, and jobs. But my open-mind and insatiable drive for self-actualization has paid off in helping me narrow in on being genuine and true to myself! I moved to Portland in October 2014 and this is exactly where I want to be.

I really like the outdoors, and particularly like to hunt the wild edible mushrooms of the PNW. I like to be silly and goof around. I like cooking and eating with friends. I like watching movies. I like to chat about life, existential questions, and the basic experience of being human. I go to the gym a few days/wk, I am not a exercise nut, but it feels good to look good and be in shape!

I am real, emotionally connected, direct, and honest. The thing that brings me the greatest satisfaction is deeply connecting with other people on what we usually hide from the world. The sort of connection that occurs when we are ourselves vulnerably, honestly, and expressive (yet in control) of our emotions. I am so impressed when another person is willing to do this.

I recently began a private practice as a counselor, and am concurrently completing a Masters' program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Self-knowledge and self-actualization are central to my values and personal goals.

A long-term romantic relationship is not necessarily a goal of mine, as I enjoy my single life quite a bit. But I think if it worked out that I met someone and we clicked; and found our time together enriching; and found that it better supported the lives we respectively wanted to have, then I think I could be even happier.

If ye ain't scared, read on;)

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: recently I have been into James Clavell, and have read Shogun, Tai Pan, and am close to the end of The Noble House. Mostly what I have read over the last couple years has been books on psychotherapy.

Movies: I really like just about anything. I kinda watched myself out on movies the last several years though...thanks bit torrent.

Music: I don't listen to a whole lot of music, but I like Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Explosions in the Sky, Cold Play, Imogen Heap, Radiohead, Mogwai, Mono, Rasputina, Sufjan Stevens, for some examples. Like movies, I am pretty open to music. Been listening to a lot of ambient stuff lately when working.

Food: everything. I try to stick to mostly whole foods, but usually have pizza once a week.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. a sense of direction for my life
2. the internet (recovering addict;))
3. authentic people to share life with
4. a good sense of my own values
5. a meaningful way to contribute positively to humanity
6. forests
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
who I really am deep down and what would make me happiest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It is pretty much like any other night. I am self-employed and work from home, so days of the week don't matter that much to me. I do what I want!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
mostly can't watch horror movies with ghosts....if I want to sleep afterwards
