My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Right now I'm living in SE Portland, growing a small garden, making new food items, trying to learn about other people, biking places, and training/teaching martial arts.

I'm close with my family, and consider a number of people to be my best friend. I tend to hang out with people who work in the service industry, are educators, and are passionate about something. What are you passionate about?

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is in an interesting transition right now. I've been a professional cook for years, but just got a new job at a high-end, boutique kitchen knife store. It's strange to be back in retail after nearly a decade, but I'm excited and passionate about the product. I was known for my knife skills as a cook, and now I get to play with and talk about them all day.

Other than my job, I am a martial artist. I've been training most of my life and plan to do so until the end. Kicking, punching, and grappling with someone is probably one of the better ways to get to know them. Our school is just a collection of goofs getting together to have some fun.

I went to school as an art major, and this has greatly influenced me to be creative and work with my hands.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Shaking that ass.

Crying freely while slicing shallots thinner than you've ever seen.

Laughing, seemingly at random, into a quiet room and having to explain what just passed through my head. (Likely the word "butts")

Shaking that ass, but in a silly way.

Getting punched in the face. (In a fun way)

I am a food fiend. I love all foodstuffs. Except the things I don't like. Those things are gross. Notably I enjoy: noodles/pasta, rice, veggies, charcuterie, low and slow cooked meats, and raw fruit. I enjoy cooking Japanese, Chinese, French, and Italian. I've recently been obsessed with Southeast Asian cuisine, notably Vietnamese.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my pals, having a beer, and eating good food. Ideally. Maybe some ping pong.
