the starving part.
My favorite hobby is writing
: I love to write. It’s the one
thing I’ve done since I was a child. I speak Japanese
and love to eat sushi
, go out on the town and
dress nice—for any reason, even if that is no reason at all.
I am clever, creative and driven.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on a new associate's for Computer information Sciences.
Especially since I just earned a grant to study it from the state.
Graduating next year.
I'm working very hard on my first two books. One is a hard look at
and the other is a supernatural story
writing. It's a ghost story
and I'm already up to 115
And planning my next adventure

want a part in it. (`_^)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
[I'll send you a few
artsy pictures if you want them] and witty banter
. I also cook
really well. I love

Lately two of my favorite recipes
are the salmon hash served at
Heathman hotel and barbacoa. I've been told it's better than

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, the thing I think most people zero-in on about me is
the fact that I have such dark features offset by my really, really
bright eyes. They've been described as "a cornucopia of color
offset by darkness."

Music: Anything that isn't looped for 8 hours straight!
Food: Anything that tastes good. I especially love Italian
There's more to each of these lists, but I just don't feel the urge
to write one that's a zillion miles long. If you want to know If I

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

the one about the pope, a rabbi and the angry midget?)
And finally: Beer
Yes, Beer, the pinnacle of human civilization.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My mind is a cascading waterfall of ideas. No, it's a singularity!
I never have lone ideas; they explode, careen, multiply from here
to infinity and in between because they ebb and flow. Oscillating
between this form and that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have a standing tech seminar I go to on Friday night, but I am
free after 10 p.m. I am in downtown Portland, though, so ask me

I'll always write a letter back if you send one, so don't be
worried about writing something "perfect." Perfection isn't a
prerequisite for me and I hope it isn't for you either.
Please don't write me if you have children. I'm not interested in
that in this point in time.
Know that I do not make 80 grand a year. Those are my future
earnings after I graduate from my progam--which is overwhelmingly
paid by scholarship money. Heck, I got $3500 this month alone to
cover tuition for a new associate's degree. So if after reading all

fit. Because chances are you're either unemployed or underemployed
as well. There are plenty of ways to have fun for free.
I also have an active lifestyle and expect you to be able to keep
