I'm originally from Fairbanks, Alaska, but also spent a lot of time growing up in Sacramento, California and went to college for my bachelors in Portland, Oregon. I decided I was really tired of getting rained on, so once I graduated I moved out here and am loving it so far. My parents have retired out here as well, so unless I get a dream job offer somewhere else I'm planning on staying in the Mountain West region for the extreme long term.
I don't own a dog (yet) due to renting, but I like most of them better than I like most people. I mostly stick to a vegan diet, but I'm non-judgemental about those who make other choices with their own food.
I think the most important things in a relationship are trust and communication, and the most attractive things in a woman are intelligence and competence.
