I'm a Portland native and seventh-generation Oregonian who just got back from Salem where I worked as an Engineering Specialist for the Oregon Department of Transportation. Before settling back into Oregon, I spent last summer traveling the world, with visits to Canada, Chile, South Africa, Australia, and Japan. I spent the summer before that cycling across all of Western Europe. I started in Madrid, circled the Iberian peninsula, through France, and Italy, through the Alps, to my final destination of Amsterdam.
Still, it's nice to be home in Cascadia.
You can see pictures from my ride around Europe and other travels on my Facebook profile, for those who are interested.
I've been told that I'm an ESTJ (Determined Realist), apparently. From what I've read, that seems pretty accurate. More recently, however, I've also heard ISTP (Individualistic Doer) to be fairly fitting. In that respect, I consider myself to somewhat oxymoronically be both a strong extrovert and a strong introvert.
Maybe I'll think of something clever to write here. Until then, here are the facts:
I'm 6'3" (190 cm), and I also cycle year-round. Let's just say that up to 10,000 miles a year keeps me in very good shape. I spent the summer of '09 cycling 2,500 miles solo around Washington and down the coast to Mexico for charity. In '10, I decided to cycle 4,200 miles solo across the country to NYC. In '13, I covered 5,600 km across 12 European countries. In six years, I've managed to put over 30,000 miles on my bike and have no plans to stop.
Enough about me, why don't you contact me so I can get to know more about you?
