Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a laid back 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-authenticity has paid off in helping me be genuine
and true to myself! I moved to Portland in October and this is
exactly where I want to be.
I 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 enjoy
yoga and meditation. 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 recently began a private practice as a psychotherapist, and am
concurrently completing a Masters' program. Private practice really

respectively wanted to have, then I think I could be even
A few sensitive items of self-disclosure:
1. I eat meat, and as sorry as I feel for inhumane treatment at
farms, I don't plan to change this anytime soon.
2. I don't work much and don't make a lot of money. I prefer to get
by on little and have ample personal time. I'd love to have more
work as a therapist, but that is unlikely until I am
state-licensed. In a couple years, I'll be A-Ok as a full-time
therapist, but in the meantime, my belt is pretty tight.

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
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 ghostls....if I want to sleep
