My self-summary
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. Trying out new restaurants, travelling to new places and laughing with friends makes me happy. I am a diehard Texas Longhorns fan :)

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most days I'm an engineer at a large semiconductor 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 many are engineers, so take the 'outgoing' part with a grain of salt).
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. Turning sand into money.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Pop psychology and behavioral economics junkie

Music: favorite band is the Strokes.
Also like: Local Natives, Phoenix, Sufjan Stevens, Explosions in the Sky, Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Toro y Moi (other chillwave stuff).
I might also be slightly obsessed with Moby.

I don't watch TV or movies too much. Not because I'm anti-TV, but because I have the attention span of a 2 year old who suffers slight bouts of ADD (I struggle to finish reading Buzzfeed articles without getting distracted). All of this amounts to me being pretty bad at pop culture trivia and not 'getting' television references. I consider this to be the unfortunate Achilles heel of my upbringing. If you can school me on Seinfeld references or fill me in on what Snookie is up to these days, I'll totally be your friend.
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, vitamix, wool, internet on a mobile device, a good read
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, food, fitness
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 rush.

I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, communing with friends, and working on other DIY engineering projects.
I recently got into woodworking and find myself spending way too many Friday nights in the shop.
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.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are sincere and thoughtful or found any of the above compelling.

I have little expectation of what may transpire from being on this site. I find the whole process of online dating to be incredibly surreal; it is challenging to find connection. At the very least, I hope to make new friends, though I remain hopeful more could exist.
