Woodworker, artist, writer. Just moved to Portland for Gradschool. Curious, thoughtful, independent natured. Funny and charming on occasion.
Not a health and wellness nut. Not a music aficianado. Not a fashion guru. But, definitely value strength, a good lip-sync sesh, and style very deeply.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing whatever it takes to not lose the innate curiosity to learn.
I've been a woodworker for the past 5 years. Now I am one semester deep into a MFA in Craft and Design.
I've also spent quite a bit of time traveling this country, doing odd jobs here and there - learning about craft and farming.
Almost every summer I go to upstate New York to teach an environmental ed course. It is one of my most important endeavors.
I’m really good at
Dancing, falling asleep while reading, enjoying beer, making
furniture, dreaming up converted barn house designs, falling in
love with dogs and babies (not cats . . . ok, sometimes cats), long
distance driving, and wilderness survival.
The first things people usually notice about me
My funny and always changing hair cut.
My andro-femme style.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Breakfast of Campions by Kurt Vonnegut, Into the Wild and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, anything by Wendell Berry and Michael Pollan.
Movies: Rocky I - IV
Top three TV shows: Friday Night Lights, The Wire, Battle Star Galactica
The six things I could never do without
Redwing boots. Pocket knife. Durable pants. Bear hugs. Good comedy. Dancing partner
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get all the sawdust off me. What I'm going to eat for my next meal. The made up scenarios in my head.
My favorite thing to think about though, is women in comedy. I have a lot of thoughts and feelings on this topic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Very excited to be able to sleep for as long as I want. Being a badass is exhausting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I take those stupid quizzes on facebook and this is what I've learned thus far:
I'm equally introvert and extrovert
My aura color is white
I'm in the house of Gryffindor
My ideal state to live in is Wyoming
My old person name is Earl
You should message me if
If you sincerely think we might get along and can think of something more interesting to say then "Hey" or, "You have a nice smile" or, "how about this fine weather."
Also, I'm light-hearted, but not faint of heart, and I'd like you to be the same way.
