I'm a guy.
I'm also a glass artist. I graduated a few years ago from the University of Nebraska with a customized degree in art (mostly glassblowing), natural sciences (you know, like physics and junk), and philosophy (we could be in a turtle's dream in outer-space (jk (I prefer Kierkegaard to Frank Reynolds, (but not by that much (parentheses are fun (don't you think?)))))).
Despite a propensity towards introversion, I really love to travel and experience new people. In my 26 years, I've been lucky enough to visit 13 countries. I've learned a lot about myself from seeing how different people choose to live. From nomadic Alabamians periodically surfing your couch, to Japanese grandfathers that require their own personal karaoke machines, to Greek grocers that touch your heart with appreciation when you're finally able to communicate to them that they've accidentally given you too much change, to drunk old Irishmen who try to sell you a cat that isn't theirs (when you weren't in the market for a cat in the first place), I think the world is too full of interesting people to limit your exposure to any small part of it.
I recently moved to Portland, and I'm looking to meet some new people here. My favorite activities include contemplation, shooting the breeze, reading, going out or staying in with friends, watching football or hockey, playing basketball, and converting non-believers to the cult of Bill Murray.
As a full-fledged human being, I feel that there's a little bit more to me than what I can share in a few paragraphs, so if you wanna know something more, like how many elbows I have or something, feel free to ask. Just don't ask me about my elbows, though. What IS your deal with elbows? Drop it already.
