My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since you've found yourself in Portland, there's a pretty good chance that we are compatible as far as politics, religion, etc. go. But those are just options from drop-down lists that help make sure we don't find ourselves discovering on the third date that the other person is a right-wing Christian trying to save our souls. Really getting to know someone is much more than that, and is difficult to capture in auto-biographical text boxes.

I hold doors, stand when guests join the table, say "Thank you", am kind to strangers and animals, assume but don't incist that I'll buy the first round, and call my mom. And I'm funny.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Transitioning from highly successful computer nerd to (hopefully) highly successful brewer.

I've been a Systems Admin / Engineer for a long time now, and while it's a pretty sweet gig, I've found that I love the creativity bounded by science that brewing has become. So I'm studying biology, chemistry, fermentation science, etc. and part-time semi-pro brewing, serving, and helping out at various beer events around town.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
New friends in new places, old friends in old places, brewing, bowling, cycling, snowboarding, breakfast burritos, conversation, problem solving, playing with dogs, fixing our bikes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really have no idea. I'm pretty outgoing? Cyclist build? Glasses? Probably glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Generally non-fiction, but David Foster Wallace, Cormac McCarthy, and Chuck Palahniuk are pretty damn great. "Red flags", I know. But still. If you've not them, you really shouldn't judge. "Oblivion" was amazing. I'm taking a second try at finishing "Infinite Jest" and enjoying it immensely. And "Cosmos" and "Dataclysm" (the book written about data collected from OKCupid), among other things.

I should read more, but can't think of how I'd make time for it.

Movies: Shaun of the Dead, Lost in Translation, Star Wars, Brick, The Dark Knight, Broken Flowers, Grosse Pointe Blank, Drive, Blade Runner, Heat, Heathers, Mean Girls, The Watchmen, Wes Anderson, Chris Nolan.

Shows: Arrested Development, Daily Show, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, [adjective] [noun], Metalocalypse.

Music: I'd be quite surprised if we had the same taste, so I don't prioritize this in a match. I'm mostly into stuff you'd turn off instantly. Also some jazz and blues, depending on the mood, and classic rock.

Food: Love it. Know it.

Your value to the world is what you add to it, not what you consume from it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My day to day existence would be much more difficult without my bike and phone. And I moved back to Portland to be near my friends, great beer, cycling and snowboarding, so those must be pretty important.

That being said, I love getting out of town and away from all the distractions that keep us from knowing who we really are.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Theoretical physics, fluid dynamics, heat energy, phenols, hoverboards, and humans.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
up late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm sincerely afraid of hummingbirds. I'm not afraid of birds (mostly), and I'm not afraid of needles, but hummingbirds are like flying, malicious syringes.

Somehow, this fact became not-private recently, so I'm going to have to think about this one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to. I know that's cliché, but follow me here...

Those of us who care to know are aware of how awful it can be for women to use OKCupid to try to find someone who's not a psychotic, misogynistic creep. Hilariously depressing articles abound on the topic.

That being said, as someone who's *not* a psychotic, misogynistic creep, I hesitate to add to your deluge of messages – even if I'm one of the few (apparently) who aren't berating or soliciting you.

It's therefore in both of our best interests if the "gentlemen" here exercise some selectivity in messaging the ladies, and the ladies take an active role in contacting those who catch their attention. Believe me when I say that any progressive, intelligent man would be flattered to recieve such attention.
