I am a positive and outgoing guy with a lot of passion for life. I love trying new things, traveling, and meeting new people. I have been in Portland for 10 years and it has been good to me. The dude abides!
I think life is a lot like a puzzle, as the pieces come together it becomes more exciting and fun to figure it out. I like to think I am working on a master piece. So far it seems like it is coming together pretty well and I am excited to see what the future holds!
I really enjoy outdoor activity, spending time with friends and family, and traveling as much as possible. I love good food and good music. I go to a lot of concerts and like to try as many different restaurants as possible. Pdx is a food Mecca!
I love soccer and running! I also enjoy skiing, hunting, kayaking, motorcycling riding, hiking, biking, reading, politics, traveling, doing research, studying business and the financial markets, and volunteering. And maybe just a good movie now and then.
I work for IBM as a financial and business analyst; so far so good. I studied economics at Lewis and Clark College. I speak Spanish fluently and have traveled abroad in South America a fair amount. I would love to go back sooner than later, but first, Europe!
I grew up in Wisconsin and enjoy watching the Packers and eating cheese, it's true! Beers and brats, yah-der-ey ;)
I am here to meet some other fun and interesting people and hopefully find some romance. I love a good flick, a slice of pizza, and a tasty beer, but I am just as partial to a tasty home made meal and some conversation over a bottle of wine.
Learning and exploration are two of my true passions.
