Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My closest friends would describe me as generous, caring,
intelligent, funny, and easy-going. To be fair, I did ask
I grew up in the Michigan wilderness on Lake Michigan. Because of
that, I have a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Camping, hiking,
disc golf, sledding, biking, whatever - Any reason to get outside
I love the rainy days in Portland too - I tend to always have at
least four or five books that I'm currently reading, and will often
impulse buy a new one as soon as it's suggested.
Moving out to Portland has sort of been a life-long goal of mine.
Last year I was able to move out here for a job, and I've never
I am constantly learning and trying new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have what has been referred to as a 'big kid job' working for a
small tech company that customize databases for genetics testing
labs. I went to school for Economics, so I have definitely felt a
little out of depth at times - but the job does a good job of
paying the bills and keeping me out of too much trouble, both of
which I appreciate.
Outside of work, I love spending my time exploring Portland and the
surrounding wilderness. I'm a huge fan of weekends - they're always
a great chance to catch some local music or go hiking with friends
(the gorge rules).
I've been working on pulling a band together since I was able to
play full, recognizable songs on my guitar - so far I have a
violinist. Playing guitar is a passion of mine, and I'm always down
for a friendly jam session!
Secretly I've always wanted to be a writer. I have this idealized
notion that I would just hang around in cafes all day drinking
strong , black coffee and discussing literature with other writers.
Until we moved on to drinking whiskey. The next morning I would
wake with a battered, half-finish manuscript next me. In my mind,
this is how being a writer works.
I'm also on Underdog leagues for bowling and kickball. While these
are not the most athletic of sports, I've made a bunch of awesome
friends and have gotten to be a decent third baseman. It's still a
rare day I break 100 bowling though.
I’m really good at

Probably that I'm ridiculously tall. After that it's gotta be my
completely positive attitude and winning personality.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Close friends
2. My guitar
4. Delicious beer
5. An internet connection
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my friends - either exploring Portland or just
sitting around a campfire with a few beers and my guitar.
I have been known to spend a quiet Friday night at home with a good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I lost a bet to my cousin and ended up with a tattoo of neutron
decay on my foot. It's super nerdy and I love it. My family is also
super nerdy, and I love them too.
