My self-summary
Well traveled, well studied. Hard working. Hard playing. I recently read a study about the top five fields not to pursue for future graduates. I have the top three under my belt...religion (SE Asian studies), archaeology, architecture. I suppose I'm trying to stay connected with the idea of becoming a renaissance kind of dude. Been fortunate to study in France, Nepal, Japan and work in India after graduate school (for one of those super egoiste architects - incredibly talented, however).

I work as a designer and general contractor building high-end residential housing in Manhattan Beach. We are a small design-build firm. I live outside on job sites ensuring everything runs smoothly. I put out fires on a daily basis and try to command the respect and love of all of my sub-contractors.

I used to teach in a shop for architecture students and spend a lot of time working on the next idea and solving the current ones. I also freelance every now and then if the project is good and the money right, however, I'm trying to avoid solving other architects unfulfilled/unrealized ideas.

I'm originally from Portland and think Portlandia is a documentary about the people that took over my town.

I'm also an awesome dad to me four year old.
What I’m doing with my life
Working outside in Manhattan Beach, building a high-end residential house a couple blocks of the beach. Such a better existence than sitting in an architecture office drawing hypothetical projects. I'm out here building it from the ground up.

I ran a shop for architecture students. I still spend my time trying to abuse my privleges of the machines I have access to for my own benefit and personal freedoms.

Running or swimming on the daily. Great way to take in the so cal elements. I rarely miss catching a glimpse of the ocean at least some point each day.

You like fellas that are good with their hands (this is not meant to be creepy), wear boots and own custom coveralls. if you're into good times both silly and intellectual. I'm looking for mellow times, warmth, honesty, rockin' unpredictability. If you like bikes and bike rides ending with a tall can at water's edge. If you like road trips, camping, camp fires, good whiskey, sleeping in a tent. If you like to learn stuff and are still trying to pick up new things and are open to getting off at the wrong stop. I try to expect little and accept what presents itself - I'm not always perfect in this department though. If you're not tripped out by a good dude with a rad kid.
