I was born and raised in Portland, and as much as I love to visit
other places, this is the city where I want to stay. This city
accepts everyone with all of their quirks and I appreciate that
because nobody is perfect.
I have always been good at math and science despite my dislike of
their pure forms; their applications are what light up my brain. I
have always been fascinated by how and why things work, mostly in a
mechanical sense. Tearing things apart and putting them back
together was never a strange activity for me growing up.
I grew up watching basketball and I'm a huge Blazers fan. Was
re-introduced to football a few years ago by my brother who is an
avid Ducks fan and I've been following them ever since.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. Currently working in the nuclear energy sector. I'm currently looking to get back into the design side of things which is where I've been the most satisfied and had the most fun.
I’m really good at
Deducing mechanical problems, my rainman-esque ability with
mechanics has earned me 3 Nobel Prizes and a lifetime subscription
to Popular Science.
The first things people usually notice about me
On several occasions I've had random people tell me I have
beautiful eyes, so I suppose that must be the first thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin has one of the best
authorial voices I have had the pleasure to experience in recent
history. Other than that I have always been a fan of sci-fi and
fantasy novels as well as the occasional classic or
Movies: I really have such a hard time pinpointing a favorite
movie. I originally watched The Sting in high school and I
instantly loved it. The layers of the plan in that movie coming
together is brilliant and it cemented my love of similar
Music: I have an extremely eclectic music taste, I like something
from almost every genre, but ask me what my favorite genre is and
it is unequivocally ska. My older brother introduced me to the 90's
ska music on it's descent from it's short burst of popularity and I
have loved it ever since, the fast tempo mixing the brass
instruments with the standard rock band instruments just really
brings me to a good mood no matter what kind of day I'm
TV: Firefly, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Psych, The Office, Bones, Lie to
Me, Rescue Me, 30 Rock, Dead Like Me, Party Down, The Guild, It's
Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community, Dexter, Arrested
The six things I could never do without
Technology- have to have my phone and computers
Beer- I learned the importance of a good beer very early
Knowledge- to be ignorant is man's greatest plight
Camping- I love it, grew up on it, the smell of a fire's smoke on
your clothes after a good camping trip can't be matched
Netflix- I have found far too many wonderful shows and movies to
want to do without it
A problem- I need something to think about, try to solve an issue
or improve something.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Spending a lot of time thinking about my ultimate fitness and career goals and how to achieve them.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually hanging out with some of the greatest friends anybody
could ask for, be it at a bar or at somebody's house it doesn't
matter when surrounded with great company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually enjoy going out dancing from time to time. And I might enjoy wasting time with trashy reality tv. I also really enjoy a lot of rom coms.
You should message me if
If you have something exciting to do that you want to share with
someone willing to try the absurd and mundane alike.
Or if you're awesome, because I'm awesome.
