Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am motivated and adventurous and like to keep it light hearted
and have fun. I am passionate about my work and my play and am
pretty much down try most anything. I appreciate honesty and being
straight forward and try to be that way myself. I love to exercise
including hiking, running, soccer, tossing the disc. I love food
and eating well is very important to me and generally staying
healthy. I love cooking, traveling, languages, photography and the
outdoors. I make it a priority to get to the mountains often. The
North Cascades, Yosemite. I want a dog but travel too much to feel
like its a good idea.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a musician and piano teacher. My schedule is somewhat flexible
and it allows me tour with various bands and travel often and spend
time writing music. I am the leader of a band that I have been in
for several years. Besides teaching and playing I freelance doing
studio recording, composing and accompanying. I have a full
teaching schedule of private piano students. I own a house in NE
Portland and so I have endless projects to work on. I like studying
languages and am currently working on my spanish. I play futsal
once a week and try to get out in the woods to run or hike as much
as possible. When I find the time I have friends over for dinner
and can easily spend an afternoon in the kitchen.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Improvising in the kitchen. Making kimchi. Fixing things in my
house. Being spontaneous. Searching for random plane tickets and
usually not buying them…but sometimes I do.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family, music, food, exercise, coffee, travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I love the creative process and I can get very into it. Travel. The
current house project. Food. Coffee. I recently found out that the
Moth (live story telling) is my favorite new entertainment in
Portland. I spend a lot of time thinking of stories to tell, though
I have not gotten the nerve to get up on stage yet...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing a gig or going to a show. Or maybe having dinner and drinks
with friends. Or if I'm lucky traveling somewhere beautiful.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I like sharing good food, wine and coffee. If you have a good sense
of humor and like to laugh. If you enjoy going out and seeing
music, dance, movies…
