UPDATE Sept 4, 2014. I just completed a thru-hike of the continental divide trail, from Mexico to Canada, and will be back in Portland in a few days. Chat me up!

Two years ago I quit a very stable and well-paying job, long-term relationship and security to find something that was missing in my life - a quest so to speak. I recently had the amazing experience of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail this past summer and traveling to China and Thailand, receiving my diving certification and taking rock climbing classes. After a short road trip around the western USA visiting friends, family and hiking trails, I am now settled in Portland with a space of my own for the first time in a year. I am exploring myself, my environment and what I want out of life. Life is about the journey, not the destination.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Financial Analysis is my background and I may work in this field again, but in a different environment, and for a cause I am passionate about. I am currently pursuing writing and blogging and living unconventionally. I am interested in living with a small footprint, and discovering ways to live unconventionally while being able to travel as much as possible. I spent twelve years after college working for big companies to save money for retirement - basically I was planning for dying. I am changing my priorities so that I can find work that I enjoy and have passion for, so that I can work to live, instead of living to work.

I am also "experimenting" with veganism Oprimarily for health reasons. I've been vegan since Feb, 2012 (the occasional fish or egg dish added when options aren't available), but on the trail I could not maintain this diet. I am certainly not a hardcore vegan and I have no trouble watching you devour a steak, though it would test my resolve!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finance, Hiking, SCUBA Diving, climbing, writing, reading, running, thinking. I'm good at massages - can't stop once I start. I think it must be some kind of disorder.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My car (maybe I could do without this...?)
my laptop
intimate connection
continuous learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hiking, traveling, nutrition, conservation, my next adventure, how to make a living doing what I love

Why so many women in Portland like to pose with mustaches...kind of freaks me out

Why so many people on OKC are afraid to meet in person. Don't we spend enough time on computers?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the moment, Friday's are no different than other nights of the week. I love to meet with friends for beer or wine and conversation and fun anytime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sometimes fall asleep to 80's rock and roll ballads with yearning in my heart. :) I once had long hair in a ponytail down to my mid-back. In one of my senior pictures from high school I posed with my cherry red Washburn Flying-V Guitar, an arrow-tip shaped bolo tie, and a red hoodie shirt. I'll share this with you if we meet.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You were inspired to message me and want to hang out for any reason at all. You are bored and want to have some fun. You plan on hiking a long distance trail or traveling to a foreign country in the near future and want a hiking/travel partner or want to pick my brain. You want to get connected to the amazing hiking community in Portland. You live your life without compromises.

After some experience dating on this site, I have felt the need to specify additional preferences in my ideal match:

- Please have Fit/Skinny/Athletic identified as a body type. I am not superficial, but to be a ideal match for me and my lifestyle, I prefer an active and healthy woman.
- My plan is to build a home base here in Portland but my wanderlust will not abate anytime soon. I hope you love travel and adventure!
- Are you comfortable shitting in the woods? Ok good.
- Are you working 50-80 hours/week or too busy with classes to be able to get together more than once a week? We may not work out.
