Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summaries are summarized at the end.... and I am not even close.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making forward progress living life in reverse.... A few years ago,
I quit my career as a studio music recording engineer to
successfully finish two degrees in Environmental Science and
Geography. I now enjoy the ultimate flexibility and satisfaction of
working for myself - doing something meaningful that I truly love.
When I am not creating my own work schedule, I spend my free time
hiking, biking, fishing, cooking, skiing, camping, skipping,
hopping, jumping, galloping, gardening, and hunting.... new people
to talk to. I would spend every minute of my life outdoors if I
could and I am diligently working on making that my reality. I
recently moved to the Portland area to help scoot things along.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...balancing a salt shaker on one grain of salt.... for realzies!
Note: I will never seriously say 'for realzies' in your
I also sing, dance, joke, laugh, kiss, touch, and listen very
well... but none of these things compare to a salt shaker standing
on end on a wobbly table in a crowded bar.... no?
The first things people usually notice about me

I owned and operated a record store/music venue in a former
life.... and so I really shouldn't even start.... but here's a
short list of a few klassics: Ween, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky,
The Elected, The Frames, Ben Folds, Blackalicious, Born in the
Flood, BRMC, The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In, Athlete, ...And You
Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Dan The Automator, Godspeed You
Black Emperor, Breaking Laces, (the artist formerly known as) Cat
Stevens, Cat Power, The Dears, Los Halos, M. Ward, Seu Jorge, Trans
Am, Stereophonics, (early dirty) James Taylor, John Denver
and......... The Unicorns. Don't judge. After two strokes of the
space bar, I already regret the above list. Someone will inevitably
draw their own conclusion about my personality based upon 0.0001%
of my musical taste.
The story is much the same regarding movies, books, and food....
Although, I will note that I have devoted the past couple of years
to catching up on my reading after several busy years....
I should mention that I used to have my own private party
chef/catering business on the side.... so I can and will impress
you with my cooking ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, water, essential nutrients, my camera, my guitar, The Beach
Boys, and "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers (I realize that's
7........... I shoulda known when to fold em').
...and I am fully aware that "The Gambler" part of this section
also falls into the "most private thing I'm willing to admit"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...what I should type in this box, other solar systems, how to
properly dispose of batteries, and whether or not I belong in this
place at this time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I am not all that private.... however, I do have this
strange connection to frogs...
I am also a former spelling bee champ (but I try not to showboat)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
....you want to take me around the Portland area (while my newbie
membership is still valid) and have a real time together without
all the first-blind-date bullshit.... go to shows, have some tasty
brews, and fully enjoy each other, etc. .... then we'll plan the
