Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born and raised in Texas, currently living the dream of the 90's in
Portland. I enjoy skiing/hiking/the outdoors, and have recently
gotten into salsa dancing. Trying out new restaurants, travelling
to new places and laughing with friends makes me happy.
For my career, I currently work as an engineer at a large tech
company. I get to wear a bunny suit daily, and I'm not talking
about the playboy kind. I love the people I work with, the
community I have managed to befriend, and I now have time to do
things I enjoy. My friends say I am, creative, sharp, and outgoing
(but most are engineers, so take that with a grain of salt).
I am attracted to people who are self actualized and believe in
something outside of themselves. If you live an active lifestyle,
and don't take life too seriously, we will definitely get along!
I'm a lifelong vegetarian, and prefer to hang with people who can,
at a minimum, tolerate my love for vegetables/animals.
I don't often come upon new people in my day to day routine. I'm
hoping that through this portal I'll be able to meet people outside
of my network. Maybe I'll even find my soulmate!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, communing with friends,
dreaming about restoring a VW Karmann Ghia, and working on other
DIY engineering projects.
I recently got into woodworking and find myself spending way too
much time in the shop.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Maximizing utility, fixing stuff, design optimization, involving
myself in tedious projects and painfully following through to
completion. Picking M&Ms out of trail mix. Making crêpes.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bicycle, backed up external hard drives, ice skates, vitamix, wool,
internet on a mobile device
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What our purpose in life is, how to give back, my silly hobbies,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with friends, trying a new restaurant, getting a drink
downtown, or doing something artsy. Sometimes I'm in bed by 10 to
wake up early for a hike or to beat the Saturday farmers market
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I arrange my sweaters in ROYGBIV color order.
Also, roughly 75% of the sweaters I own were knitted by me.
