Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a Portland native, taking a break from school in Pennsylvania.
I am a tad bit geeky, more than slightly adventurous, and a
contrarian to the core. I enjoy reading, biking, kayaking, hiking,
watching silly television shows, volunteering, and arguing just
about any subject.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am taking a year off school to just get my head back on straight
in regards to school and the looming onset of "real life". In the
mean time, I am working for an awesome finance company in the
Pearl, planning for the day I begin hiking the Triple Crown,
fencing sabre, listening to too much Pandora, taking far too many
photos of the neighborhood trees, and constantly looking for the
next hobby to catch my interest.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I cook. Be it Moroccan, American, French, or Spanish, I have it
covered. Breakfast? Done. Lunch? No problemo. Supper? Please, I
have it in the bag. I am down to try cooking or baking anything at
least once, and will often return to it if it turns out awesome.
When it comes to Italian food however, I excel. I will whip you up
a bolognese sauce atop orchiette done 'til al dente perfection with
fresh Oregon berry cannoli following soon after.

I would guess it is my walk. My walk is either swift and intense or
lethargic and bumbling; those appear to be my only two

Reading is my primary pastime. I enjoy everything from Brothers
Karamazov and Der Prozeß to a good old summer beach book. It is
fantasy novels, however, that are my bread and butter. I am
currently reading the Locke Lamora series. Because who does not
wish they were a dashing thief on epic adventures?
I will watch just about anything with company, but when alone I
watch animated Disney movies and everything bearing Hayao
Miyazaki's name. And V for Vendetta, because I watch it again and
again and it never grows old.
I love/loved Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Sherlock, Doctor Who,
Firefly, and Pushing Daisies. Obligatory Walter is a badass, thank
god pigeons don't talk about the weather, best bromance since JD
and Turk, the tenth doctor was the best, sign my petition to bring
back Firefly, and at least my love life is better than Ned's.
I enjoy everything from rock to electronica to indie. I am
currently infatuated with Smallpools, Kishi Bashi, and Clean
If it is not yet apparent, allow me to be explicit: I pretty much
live off of Italian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Rain and clouds.
A well supplied kitchen and overflowing pantry.
New music and books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about morality; my morality,
specifically. I am still trying to nail down my own sense of right
and wrong as something more specific than feelings.
And cooking. A small percentage of my mind is always looking for
news ideas and novel ingredients to make into tonight's supper.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a typical Friday night, I am reading, watching a movie, and just
generally being a homebody or out at FNM.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I am alone, I sometimes narrate the inner thoughts of the
inanimate objects around me.
Or if you want to know something, just ask! Perhaps you are
wondering about that lump of metal in my chest or my experiences
the first time I got drunk. Maybe about why my brother and I refer
to each other as "bastard." I know that last one shocked more than
a few people.
