My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spend a lot of my time in the office, but I'm lucky enough to like what I do and the folks with whom I work.

When they let me out, I try to enjoy life here in Portland. I particularly enjoy backpacking, sailing, and riding my motorcycle. In the winter, I try to stay fit, but I spend more time reading and generally vegging out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend of lot of time working. When I'm not at the 9-5, I'm putting hours in on a new business or I'm working on this body of fiction I'd someday like to finish.

I make a conscious effort to keep my quality of life high. We have so much to explore here in the NW, and I'd like to see it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making awesome meals from random leftovers.
The first things people usually notice about me

My eyes get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I wrote my undergrad thesis on postcolonial French lit, so I have a lot of favorite authors in that area. I'm a huge fan of a lot of the canonical pomo stuff: David Foster Wallace, Don Delillo, Beckett, etc. I also dig stuff that's a little lighter; Ender's Game was one of my favorite books ever.

My taste in movies tends to lean toward dark humor. I like Terry Gilliam stuff. Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry (admittedly typical hipster stuff). Huge fan of David Lynch (although I admit that my seeing humor in his work is a little unusual).

I like a lot of different music. From Tom Waits to Nine Inch Nails to Fleet Foxes to electronica. And quite a bit that isn't coming to mind immediately. My taste in music is largely contextual: expensively produced hip-hop is great for the gym; a dude with a guitar is great for the park.

Food: just about everything, and I love to cook. Maybe we could throw down in the kitchen some time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Water (the delicious kind or the kind you can jump in / sail across)
2. Me time
3. Talent
4. Pen and paper
5. A comfortable place to call home
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Words. I'm a writer, both for my paycheck and for the maintenance of my sanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making a point of seeing something I haven't seen before.

Lately, I've been laying low on Fridays so I'm ready to go adventure on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently decided to curb drinking. It's actually super rare that I drink at all anymore. I'm totally cool with going to bars, but I may or may not drink with you, depending on the mood. I've just found that I'm a way better human without alcohol in my life.

I list this as a 'private thing' because it was a personal choice for me. And I realize that, for some people, not partying hard is a deal-breaker. I totally understand, but I'm headed a different direction.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any of:

You could show me more of our beautiful state. Or you'd just be down to explore it with me.

You like backpacking.

You know how to sail.

You want to race go-karts, or anything else really. I love stuff that goes fast.

You can teach me to snowboard. Until now I've never had a chance (or the expendable income), but it's obvious I'll love it.

You write well but don't talk about your writing too much.

It's raining and you want to watch a movie.

It's sunny and you want to lounge in a park.

Or if you just want to grab a cup of coffee. I like meeting people, and I feel like you know more about a person in five real-life minutes than through any number of messages. Besides, you were going to go grab coffee anyway.
