My self-summary
I'm quick to smile and laid-back, but responsible when it counts. I'm happy where I am, but never pass up a chance to explore and travel to new places. Work keeps me very busy, but I can (almost) always make time for a beer with a friend.

It's been four years now since I finished school and drove across the country to start work here in Portland. Now I don't think I could imagine living anywhere else. A few of my favorite things about the NW:

Views of the mountain from my apartment window - especially the red sunrises.

Steep creeks with mossy banks and cold, clear water.

People watching and fresh treats at the farmer's market.

Reading a good book on the MAX on my way to work.

My job. (Most of the time)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an electrical engineer at Intel. I design some of the circuits that make your laptop (and coming soon, phone) work.
I’m really good at
I'm a whitewater kayaker and canoeist. If the snow is good, I'm also a snowboarder. I also like to think that I'm pretty good at my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
A smile, hopefully
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorites: The River Why, any David Sedaris, Dune, The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Sometimes a Great Notion, Hunger Games, Soggy Sneakers, The Soul of a New Machine, ... and many more! Reading is sexy, right?

As for movies - I'm usually looking for some pure entertainment. Superbad, The Hangover, Wedding Crashers. Favorite movie: Ferris Beuller's Day Off.

I like all kinds of different music. The classics: Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Paul Simon. Some new(er) stuff: The Postal Service, Miike Snow, Iron & Wine, Belle & Sebastian
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting up with friends and planning the coming weekend's adventures.
You should message me if
You're just as comfortable having drinks around a campfire with friends as you are doing some funky dancing at the goodfoot/eastburn/etc.

You're happy here in Portland, but maybe you're looking for someone to explore it with.
