I was raised in Portland, OR and Monterey, CA. I currently live in
Oakland, and have been for over two years. I love the bay area. I
enjoy the outdoors and am always planning to get out. I like to
exercise and take care of myself but its not something that engulfs
my personality. Im a person who believes hard work and a good
attitude will get you anywhere you want to be. I am very laid back.
Having an open mind is something I cherish. People are very
interesting to me. I love hearing about peoples unique experiences.
I like to find the good in people. I am someone who is honest. I
tell it how I see it. I smile a lot and have a friendly demiener.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently self employed witch affords me the freedom to get
out a lot. When I look into the future I see opportunity in many
places. Its hard to say what I will be doing after a year. I often
think about moving to Tahoe, continuing my current career, and
volunteering spare time to forestry.
I’m really good at
Building a campfire, cooking eggs however you like them, catching
things with my hands, poker, not freaking out about anything
adapting to situations quickly, having an open mind, being honest.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blonde hair, blue eyes. I have a natural white stripe on the middle
of my left eyebrow.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I prefer non-fiction books or fiction books that are based on
facts. Some of my favorite books are Ishmael, Desert Solitare,
Monkey Wrench Gang, Big Sur, Ham on Rye, On the Road, Tropic of
Cancer, Lord of the Flies, Where the Red Fern Grows, Dharma Bums,
The art of Happiness...
I like movies but rarely watch them. When I watch TV its almost
always sports. I am a big bay area sports fan and love going to
games. Whenever I am not watching sports I prefer nature and
survival programs like Survivor Man and Dual Survival; comedy like
Tosh.O, Seinfeld, Louise CK; drama like Breaking Bad The Wire and
Food is a passion of mine wether Im cooking or at a restaurant. I
love checking out new restaurants and will eat almost anything. I
am not a picky guy by any means. I eat it all. I love to cook and I
cook often. I generally follow a semi strict diet to maintain
optimum health and physical prowess.
I listen to anything and everything. I drive a lot so when one type
of music gets annoying to me I will switch it up. I listen to a lot
of rap music because it gives me energy at the gym, but on a rainy
night in the city I'm probably listening to some old bluesy jazz
music. I love classic rock, reggae, jazz, 80s, and electronic.
Sometimes I like to turn the music off altogether and listen to the
wind, city sounds, or Mother Nature, wherever I may be. Country
music is fine in small amounts.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My responsibilities, my friends and family, my next outdoor
On a typical Friday night I am
