Diehard Portlander with an aversion to suburbia. Southern bred.
Introverted in large groups. Analytical. Scientist. Kind. Skeptic
with a streak of cynicism. Articulate mumbler. Recovered
vegetarian. Addicted to scones. Dad of a tween I have part-time.
What else? I guess the rest can be given up a meet-ups.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Trying to keep a business going. Hanging with my daughter
and trying to figure her out. Hanging in my hood and getting around
by bike, foot, or occasionally my old pick-up truck. Hiking Pacific
Northwest trails. Drinking local brews. Saving animals. Making the
world a better place. No really.
I’m really good at
Explaining Lower Urinary Tract Disease to cat owners.
A lot of other stuff
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. I've never asked anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The endless favorites list people make are tiresome. Who reads
those? I will say my musical tastes are eclectic and range from
classical to punk, funk, my daughter's pop, and everything
in-between. Put a horn section in it, and I will like it. I just
want to be entertained at the movies, books lean towards geeky
science stuff, and recent TV shows include Louie, Breaking Bad, and
GoT. That was a mini list. Food? Yes.
The six things I could never do without
my kid, of course, my friends, my skepticism, an occasional trip to
the desert and other things in the natural world, my neighborhood,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a good dad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a happy hour beer with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not into online dating confessionals.
You should message me if
You want to toss back some of those beers with the puzzles in the
caps and try to solve them, go for a bike ride, or just talk.
