I'm a Portland native who just recently got back from flying to Chile on a complete whim, and I just drove all the way down to the Bay Area from British Columbia after a week in Canada. July was South Africa; June was Australia; April was Alaska, and the month before that, I did the same with a week in Tokyo.
Most recently, I finished cycling around Europe last summer. 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.
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 recently graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Portland. 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.
Enough about me, why don't you contact me so I can get to know more about you?
