Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an environmental and civil engineer who worked for a bad-ass
firm in New York for a few years. After deciding that upstate NY
was the janky grundle of America's rust belt, I scooted back home
and am now at a new company in Portland, saving the planet through
stormwater treatment and construction administration. This guy gets
to do everything from stream biology to concrete inspection,
because he's got a crazy diverse professional background.
Hell no, the diverse experiences don't stop at the office, 'cause I
do ALL. KINDS. of cool shit in my spare time.
Oh, what's that, you're an outdoorsy person? Fuck, yeah, I like
outside things!. I've climbed all of the 4000-foot mountains in the
northeast and most of the New England AT. I also go fishing all the
time, paddle boats up north whenever I want to, golf a bunch, and
am on a frisbee team in Portland. I've got a bitchin' garden, too
with like 30 mufuggin' pumpkin plants and a dozen jalapeno plants!
I enjoy anything from a 25-mile sunrise-to-sunset mountain hike to
a camping trip with cases of beer by a lake ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ. I've also done a
Ragnar Relay, a few 10Ks, and run on average 50 miles a month. I'm
usually outside at least one full weekend a month.
What's that, you're more the artsy type? Well no shit! I like music
things as well. I play accordion, banjo, ukulele, trumpet, and
piano. I've played in a few bands and used to be in the east
coast's longest-running burlesque troupe. You wanna have a live
ukulele and banjo boylesque hour every night FOR FUCKING FREE? Aww,
yiss, you know you do!
Oh, what's that? You want a guy who's active in the world around
him? Fuck yeah, I'm that guy! I'm in like a dozen community
organizations; I administer a few scholarships, am a land preserve
steward, run Maine's clean water young professionals group, and
help out with youth outdoor education trips, and a shit load of
other stuff, too! But don't worry, if you're the right woman I'll
make time for you.
Oh, and I enjoy inside things, too. Like video games, board games,
tea dates with my grammie, and roommate time. Because sometimes
it's really shitty outside and I'd rather be playing Smash Brothers
with my roommates than getting soaked in a tent.
SO: here's a list of all the shit I do, so you now have like 80
things to talk to me about. Find one you like and start the
