Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Fun, fit, educated professional with a wide variety of
I grew up in a very small town but with some travel and education I
have worn off most of the rough edges.
I am the guy next door, but with an urban edge.
Words that would describe me would be:
Smart, Curious, Thoughtful, Inquisitive, Sensual, Creative &
I also have a great, dry sense of humor.
I am attracted to smart and passionate women who have interests to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an Architect and am fortunate enough to be able to work
for social change. Affordable housing and community development. I
love having an emotional connection to the projects I work
I decided more than a decade ago to help create the kind of future
I wanted to see.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a great friend and a terrific parent. I am also a loyal,
trust-worthy and responsible person. I really try and walk the walk
vs. just talk the talk.
What moves me?
Entertaining-Cooking, Food & Wine. I am a serious foodie and I
love the Portland food scene. I am also very accomplished in the
kitchen-Love the foods of France, Italy, Spain, Greece &
While I am an Architect, all the above feeds my creative side. I
love to cook for people I care about.
Wine is a passion and I make wine on an artisan (tiny) commercial
level. I have a great group of friends in and around the wine
industry and we have traveled extensively to great wine
Travel-I have been lucky enough to travel a bit. I want to explore
Western Europe more. I love travel to regions of the USA where the
local culture is still strong and you can get a sense of place. I
just spent 2 weeks in Austin/Central Texas and was very moved by
what I experienced.
The Arts are a big part of my life as well. As an Architect I am
very visual and I have a big appreciation of art, architecture and
Music and film interest me as well.
Sports-I am an avid runner and would love a running companion. I
love spectator sports and would be just as happy at a Timbers game
as going to the Portland Art Museum.
Essentially, anything that touches the senses. If that makes me a
hedonist I am comfortable with that label.
