Let's see, I'm more or less a Portland native, and I take every opportunity to get out and enjoy this wonderful city and its surroundings. Restaurants, bars, shows, galleries, Blazers and Timbers games, the gorge, Hood, Smith Rock, and beyond. I'm also really into movies and music, but I wouldn't call myself a buff in either category. Richard Linklater's Boyhood was my favorite film last year, and Future Islands was my favorite new band. Oh yeah, and I read comic books—my guilty pleasure: The Walking Dead, X-Men, Saga, etc. Geeky, I know.
What else? I'm a big animal lover. As you can see from my pictures, I have myself a cat whom I've named Auryn, pronounced like "Warren" without a "w". His namesake is the medallion that Atreyu wears in the NeverEnding Story. He's pretty much the best cat ever. He even puts up with my notion that he'll learn to walk on a leash.
Aside from all that, I try to live a reasonably healthy, responsible lifestyle. I run and hike a lot. I'm also in the process of building a tiny house because I want to attempt a new, alternative way of living, as well as simplify my life and free myself up financially for all the adventures I want to go on.
