I'm a proud lifelong Oregonian and I appreciate all the positive
things this state is known for. I enjoy good films, tasty food,
live music, microbrews, coffee, drawing, video games, and watching
almost all sports. I consider myself someone who gets along well
with just about everyone. I'm an open and outgoing person so if
anything else you're curious about isn't covered elsewhere just
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working at a locally owned running specialty store for
over ten years. I love having a job that not only contributes to
the local community but also involves something I've been
passionate about my entire life. Enjoying work is important.
The rest of the time I just try to have fun and enjoy myself
however possible. I can equally appreciate grabbing a drink at a
dive bar, exploring nature on a hike, or a quiet night in watching
a movie. Most of all I like to be around good company.
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I may not be the one to start the conversation but I'm outgoing
enough to continue it.
My eyes are of a mysterious and indistinguishable color.
Usually people underestimate my actual age based on appearance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut and Chuck Palahniuk.
I've been hooked on the A Song Of Ice And Fire series. I love to
read but don't regularly give myself nearly enough time to do so. I
appreciate anyone who can recommend me a good book.
Movies: I love intelligent films but can also enjoy the mindless
popcorn flick. Action, adventure, drama and suspense top my list. I
try to find great foreign and indie films that might be easy to
miss. All time favorites include Kung Fu Hustle, Die Hard, Fight
Club, Battle Royale, Inception, The Prestige...
Shows: I don't watch a lot of TV and if I am it's often sports. My
must-see shows are Game of Thrones and Walking Dead. I appreciate
Netflix for providing me with a television experience I don't have
to work my schedule around for all the other series.
Music: I'm most commonly listening to some sort of indie rock but I
like all sorts. My favorite bands seem to constantly change. Most
of all I love live shows and supporting Salem's (limited) music
Food: There are very few things I avoid eating and I'm always up
for trying something new. I am constantly on a mission to find the
best burgers around. Must include beverage here as I am a big fan
of craft beer with a particular affinity for IPAs. I'm not so much
of a snob that I will limit myself, though.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, work, music, coffee, lists

On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting up with friends to have a beer and see some good local
music or shoot some pool.
